Cortijo is a key figure in the history of salsa and caribbean music. This album came in the latter part of his career and, by all accounts, it wasn't well received. With time it's clear that it bombed because it was so experimental - the quality is just as high as his better known albums, but here he has incorporated influences from jazz and funk. It's a pity the album didn't have more success as nothing that follows it demonstrates any of the experimentation you can find here. While there were more good albums to come, it's tantalizing to think what Cortijo might have done if he had been able to pursue some of the directions he was pointing to on Time Machine.

Among fans of Cortijo,however, the reputation of this album keeps rising. It's a late career classic that demonstrates the inventiveness and musical curiosity that made Raphael Cortijo so special in the first place. It's also a fascinating development of the African foundations of his music - exploiting the recent brazilian tropicalia experiments and the rise of 'conscious' funk in the united states.

Lo mejor de la experimentacion poligenerica afro-caribena 5 Nov. 2003
By sinnel e sandoval - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Sencillamente lo mas grande que ha dado el caribe en cuanto a experimentacion y aventura musical se refiere. Me quede atonito con su gran variedad de "explosiones de genero"...cortijo desarolla, cita, edita, basicamente va "cocinando" todo el panorama cultural-musical de las antillas, brasil y africa..
no se detengan en conocer esta obra perfecta!

One of the best albums I own... 27 Jun. 2009
By Andito Toquito - Published on
Format: Audio CD
...and I have over four thousand. As a player, if I were able to go back in time and jam with a band, this lineup would be one of my top choices. It's the only album I have by Cortijo. I came across it on someone's top ten list when I was searching for salsa, but it's not a salsa album. It is a Latin-funk-jazz odyssey with some of the most incredible chops, rhythms, harmonies, and energy you can ask for in music. There's not a musician on the album who isn't dominating his instrument. If you're lucky enough to have stumbled across this album, you should definitely make it your own!
