-"The Secret Garden, the song that opens Repertorio b, a dazzling Yellow Melodies´ album. They had some demos on CD. They come just form Murcia. We don´t know what they eat for dinner, maybe it´s the market garden, but the important thing is that the province is turning into an authentic reserve, an authentic base of rebel sounds, of bittersweet echoes and exquisite songs of the best current pop-rock. Anyway, the greatest surprise of this album is not at their natural songs, which are really splendid, and there are nine, but since what they call the surprise song, track 13, a new musical adventure begins for this band, for Yellow Melodies. Authentic electronic experiments as high as the best ones with technology details. This is called Hydrogen. They are still Yellow Melodies... Bulevar. Radio 3... and so you´re confused and you hesitate which part you prefer: the electronic psychedelia of the second part of this CD, of Yellow Melodies´ b set, or the own band with their guitars and their nice songs"
