Early Creative Genius...

"This is in fact Mecano's first work of art. Their first album was a great introduction from a band of young kids who wanted to have fun....this sophmore effort proves there is talent behind the image. PLEASE don't disregard this album since not many of the songs were major hits in the likes of "Ay Que Pesado" or "Cruz De Navajas" (although "Barco a Venus" was a controversial song in Spain for their tale of a drug addict. it can be found on "Ana , Jose , Nacho" , it may be familiar to some)...this is their BEST album from the CBS ( Sony ) years...Although the tone gets a bit goofy at times , the genius lies in the music. They become so creative and playful that it seems in every song , they were attempting to make something new and exciting..and THEY DID! but NOTHING is as creative on this album as the incredible "La Fiesta Nacional".....how ahead of themselves in 1983! They managed to succesfully make an electro/synth tonada (spanish folk song)!...they mix their traditional beats with pulsating drum machine beats , Its a great piece of work. Ana's voice on this album is where we first realize , the synth and her voice make an odd , but addicting and contagious mixture. Mecano IS hands down , THE best and most important group to record in the Spanish language. this is a great album , and has even the privilege of being remastered in 1998 , when BMG (bless them!) bought their recordings from CBS (Sony) and re-released their first 3 albums from that record label. ....now we can only hope they'll do the same for their first 2 albums with BMG , "Entre El Cielo Y El Suelo (1986)" and "Descanso Dominical (1988)"...no need to bother with the already perfect "Aidalai (1991)""

"Sin lugar a dudas un excelente ejemplo de la magia poetica y musica inigualables de Mecano. Con exitos como Barco a Venus y La Bola de Cristal, este grupo ha logrado llegar a lo mas profundo de los corazones del mundo entero. Ciertamente este trio se ha apoderado de mi corazon y de la musica del ayer, hoy y siempre!"
