One look at that space-age cover art and you know already you're in for a treat! Mexico's Al Universo was formed by Jorge Reyes, who recorded this album of spacey, largely electronic prog rock in 1976. Viajero del Espacio (trans. "Space Traveler") is an extraterrestrial odyssey performed in Spanish that serves up a cosmic cocktail of textures in the form of guitars, flute, cello, synthesizers, and an assortment of atmospheric sound effects. It's certainly adventurous stuff, boldly going where no Mexican prog group had gone before, but it also shows a pronounced pop sensibility and melodicism.
