"I didn't even realize this CD existed. I've loved Aterciopelados for years, and I always favored the nasty-punky-unpredictable EL DORADO over their more professional recent output. This is like a dream come true: the EL DORADO lineup sounding confident and creative, lava-surfing through an incredible range of styles. To hear the classic Aterciopelados thrash-snarl on 'La gomela' and 'Quieto veneno' is pure bliss. The morbid Mexicana of 'La cuchilla' has a menace and humor that is absent from the band's recent work. With the exception of her lukewarm rendition of 'Mujer gala,' Andrea's performances here are absolutely astounding. All the voices in her complex personality are heard here: the rabid rocker, surreal siren, vocal acrobat, eloquent poetess, and on the amazing 'Sortilegio' you get to hear them all. Any Aterciopelados fan should listen to this if they (like me) found GOZO PODEROSO tame and disappointing."
