CD Reviews

Roger I. Camara Lemarroy | monterrey, nuevo leon Mexico | 07/18/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"On "Jessico", Babasonico's latest, their dark and heavy inspired music does not dissapear as much as it did on their previous release "Miami," which was a great album, yet most of the complex arrangements and hard guitars are taken to another level, and focused on a brighter side. This release, the most commercial of the 6, has managed to be very accesible without compromising the band's creative process and gloom-lull music.
Whats most surprising about this album is the tendencie of the music to contain old-western-type-riffs, Texan-metal-sounding-guitars, and old-mexican-spaghetti-western-tunes. This cd could be the perfect sountrack to an electronic society in the Old West, with damsells in distress, horses named silver, and all the bar fights you could imagine, without anyone getting killed at all.
Trading their depressing music for a bouncy and happy electronic beat with great guitar/bass/voice arrangements and an amazing balance between the electronic-acoustic ambient is not unfamiliar ground to the band, for their two previous releases, the forementioned "miami" and 1997's "Babasonica" contained glimpses of the future in a couple of songs that were arranged in the same way this album was made.
Maybe not at the same musical level as 95's masterpiece "dopadromo," the lyrics still maintain their usual genious, and manage to bring the gloomy side to the music without being depressing or funny. The vocal arrangements are beautiful and replace the wird scratchy voice the lead singer has for a more accesible listen.
With amazing songs and the whole trip the Babasonicos have offered to their listeners for the past 10 years, they have managed to become one of the 3 best and most important bands in latin america.
If you have dissimissed latin american rock because of shakira, this is a cd you must own. In fact, even if you have never listened to music in spanish this cd is a must."

"Babasonicos logra con este disco lo que muchas bandas de rock alternativo suramericano no han logrado. mezclar diferentes ritmos regionales con sonidos vanguardistas. Boleros con musica electrnica y la vez musica electronica mezclada con diversos instrumentos de cuerda.Es asombroso pensar que es una banda que empezo con sonidos psicodelicos y letras oscuras y ahora anda con boleros cantandole en ocasiones al amor amor sin perder su estilo, el estilo babasonico."

"Babasónicos marcan el camino de música en castellano "escuchable" de esta época.
Con sonidos y arreglos variados cada tema muestra distintos estilos que fueron desarrollando desde los discos anteriores.
Cuando se quiera escuchar música nueva (adeptos a Shakira y Ricky Martin abstenerse) escuchen Jessico."
