I can see this idea came from; I can see why they did this: and seeing that it's aimed at a Sunday Tabloid Audience, I have to say that it is most likely A Highly Effective Way To Make The Audience Spend.

It is, therefore, in its own context, a success, so, grudgingly, good and in that respect an 8.

From a pedantically professional perspective, below our line however: shoes are too small, child's too staring in its mother's eyes, floating script's too flat, probably didn't have that kind of skirting to walls in that era, and something about spacing with gold buttons.

But beautiful art direction nonetheless, nobody noticed.

No encontraron buenos referentes musicales en Ecuador o por lo menos en América del Sur o en América Central. Los artistas norteamericanos e ingleses son únicos que han aprendido de esos grandes maestros de la música. Si la idea es buscar artistas de la música de fama mundial creo que América ha dado bastantes artistas al mundo. Juan Luis Guerra, Silvio Rodriguez, Fito Paez, Carlos Gardel, Gustabo Cerati, Luis Miguel, Armando Manzanero,miles.
