Another raving review

"Almost everyone has been raving about this cd and with good reason. I think this is Moenia's best CD in the sense that all the track are absolutely solid. Every song is fun and beautiful, musically and lyrically. My personal favorites, 1. Estabas ahi, (great dance song) 2. Y nada que hacer (soft beautiful lyrics), 4. Contigo Estare (good lyrics), and 11. Estoy tan cansado (atmospherical and simple). I dance to these songs and they also help me sleep, which is an odd combination but the music uses light synth beats.

I guess they're techno, electro-pop and even if you don't speak Spanish, if you like 80's music and electro synthpop, maybe even Brit pop, you'd probably like these guys as well. Their newest CD, Stereohits is also amazing: covers of Latin 80's songs and Alfonso sports a faux-hawk, can't beat that. Rock pa we-o."
Techno-Pop: Who'd say they got it right?

"Techno-pop. Does it ring a bell to you? Erasure? Pet Shop Boys? Back in 1997 when most Mexican music seemed to be stalled, these guys come out and break every standard set by the national music industry with one magnificent piece of an album. Morbo's soothing voice along with nicely planned 'beats and bytes' made this one album a must for every mexican music appreciator. I'd honestly say this is Moenia's ONE and ONLY album, not to imply that recent albums are bad, but this one has that special something that will keep you hooked for hours onto their tunes and still want to pop in this disc into your player countless times. Definitely, a must."
