Molomix, a collection of remixes of several songs from Molotov's 1997 debut, ¿Dónde Jugaran las Niñas?, contrasts with most remix albums in that it doesn't feature complete overhauls of the original songs. As a result, many of the remixes here are rather dull: the club mixes of "Puto" and "Cerdo" are simply sped-up to make good dance-floor fodder; the "urban mix" of "Gimme Tha Power" differs only slightly from its original; and the drum & bass remix of "Gimme tha Power" is simply generic. Still, Molomix has a few things going for it. "El Carnal de las Estrellas," a previously unreleased track, combines a soundtrack-like string arrangement with Molotov's hard-hitting raps. Also, the group's hilarious version of "Rap Soda y Bohemia" (a.k.a. Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody") is included in its uncensored version--the version that appeared on a Latin Queen tribute album deleted a reference to serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer. But aside from these two nonessential tracks, listeners unfamiliar with Molotov, Mexico City's answer to Rage Against the Machine, would do better to start with Dónde. --Jeff Niesel

The Streets Heartbeat

"The most political, volatile and razor sharp lyrics being put down in Mexico are cutting through society like mantiquilla by Molotov. As their name indicates they are the people's bomb shaterring everything in its way with the force of a nuclear bomb. These street savvy urbanites make the Beasties sound like Pat Boone. Although this is a remix it holds true to the originals enough that even when altered completely they remain satisfying. A combination of hip-hop ala estilo Mexicano and rock these boyz are cutting edge, even though this is a remix of their first CD. Not for the faint of heart be ready for a full out assault on society and the injustices of power. Case in point, "Puto"(three versions) and the catchy "Gimme the Power"- "Dame, dame todo el poder, para que te demos en la madre". "Rap Soda y Bohemia" is a fresh remix of the song made famous by Queen. Essential music that is reflective of the state of the union in Mexico y los barrios de Estados Unidos. Geared for and popular amongst the youth veteranos like myself might find this to be just the right amount of this music. I really, really like it but in small doses. If I were younger I'd own every one of their CD's! Since I'm not I'll be a closet listner with my head phones on while the younster gives me a look and thinks, "he's probably listening to oldie but goodies". An added bonus is that this is an enhanced CD and captures some of their raw youthful energy. Think of it as MTV Internacional for your computer. Estos vatos son de aquellas y como ellos mismo dicen"Viva Mexico Cabrones"!!!"
