CD Reviews

Someday this man will be justly recognized for his music

"Calamaro can be justly and truly described as the Obi-Wan Kenobi of what's known as 'Rock en espanol' ('Rock music in Spanish'). It is a shame that his music is overshadowed with the likes of Shakira, Juanes, Mana, etc. who, yes why not, can make nice music, but just that: nice, while Calamaro's music is much more than that. Now, if you have never heard Andres Calamaro before, here -this CD- is your starting point. 'El Salmon' is a 103 songs, -a 5 CDs!!- 'tour de force' where Calamaro sings about everything, from love and women to politics and further with that downright cynical sneer of his. Calamaro even covers rock classics like the Stones' 'Time is on my side' or The Beatles 'The Long and Winding Road'. So, if you like 'Rock en espanol' it is time that you check this out. I'm sure that you will love it, and ask yourself why he's not more known. I don't know, maybe his music is reserved for the proud and the few. Will you be one of them? Hope you enjoy it."

"andres es sorprendente, ...es un cabrón que no da lugar a terminos medios; y además su manera kamikaze de composición frenética me parece impresionante...
este disco lo tiene todo; rock, blues, hip hop, reggae, tango, mambo, jazz, experimentaciones electrónicas...
...pero, por encima, de todo eso, tiene al músico más brutal de todas las eras, tiene al músico que sigue el ejemplo del salmón..."
No hay Quinto Malo!

"No, definitivamente cuando se trata de Andres no debe existir la duda cuando se trata de comprar otra de sus locuras. Es absolutamente genial y me da malgenio saber que en casi toda latinoamerica salio una version "recortada" de esta obra maestra.Andres nos deja su legado musical de nuevo y en verdad es genial, cada cancion, cada tema de los Beatles, cada compas es una bendicion musical.Si no tienes la version completa (los 5 Cds) es como si fueras a un restaurante y te sirvieran la cola y no EL SALMON completo."
