Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The bad news is there are only five original new Cadillac songs on here. There are two covers and a handful of remakes of older material.
The good news is that all five new songs are top notch, especially the title track, which could have been on the band's masterpiece, EL LEON. The covers, especially of the Clash's "Should I Stay or Should I Go," are fun, and the remakes are distinctive and interesting. (Though how many more times will they record "Basta de Llamarme Asi"? This makes the fourth, counting the live version on CHAU.)
The record is rather apolitical, which is the biggest surprise. The remake of "Mal Bicho," one of their most aggressive statements, has the feel of their disco cover of the Stones' "Miss You." The anthemic chant, "Te digo no! Te digo no!" is gone--yet the song still works.
This is a must for serious Cadillacs fans, and not a bad place to start if you've never heard the band.
This is a fun album, but lacks the raw feeling of the OLD Cadillacs. Overproduced recordings; too "safe" and radio friendly.
It's LFC and not much more need be said if you're a fan. Some new songs here but what I really enjoy are their reworkings of some of their classics. Hearing Emilio of Rabanes guest singing is a plus. I've never heard a bad CD by LFC and this is another great one.
