In March 2000, Max Glisser announced that for personal reasons he would leave the group. Thus the group became a quartet. During the month of June, Canal Magdalena was invited to participate on the album Tribute to the Prisoners, recording a cover version of "Mentality" which sold 15,000 copies.

In December 2001, Canal Magdalena won the APES Award, the highest honor awarded by the Chilean press as best album of the year.

In August 2003, Kamal Lues and Yigal Glisser left the band and were replaced by Christian Arroyo, Gonzalo Herrera and Giova Baeza. They then started to record their third album, Mead.
