Synopsis

Product Description
Grammy-nominated Mexican electro-rockers deliver their latest effort. It's the follow-up to a "best of" collection released on EMI. Plastilina Mosh first debuted to the American public at SXSW where they caught the eye of Beck, who financed a recording session through his Bong Load label. That session led to "Aquamosh", the band's debut full-length on Capitol Records, which launched them to platinum sales in Latin America.

Lost in Translation

"Plastilina Mosh is one of my favorite bands, but the new album is disappointing. The problem is, they don't appear to have had a native English speaker help them with their English lyrics, and those lyrics are often just, well, corny. Perhaps what they were trying to express might have worked in Spanish, but the meaning or sentiment just doesn't convey well in English.

There are still some good songs. The best song is My Party. It's a novelty song, but done well and fun to listen to. 2nd is probably Let You Know. A few of the lyrics are a little odd, but the song is very catchy. Pervert Pop song is a close 3rd. This one may grow on me. The real disappointment is Danny Trejo. This songs starts out ROCKING - it could have been one of their best - but halfway in they shift to English and the song just falls flat on its face. I LOVE the first half and HATE the last half (guys - if you read this - please, please fix it!). Jonaz Goes to Hollywood is OK, it might grow on me too. Toll Free has a good sound, but the lyrics are just too awkward.

The band said this is probably their most commercial album. I'm guessing they were targeting the U.S. market with this English-heavy album, but the English lyrics just don't work. I don't find any songs here on par with their earlier hits like Afroman, Nalguita or Te Lo Juro Por Madonna.

"Hace más o menos diez años que, no sin cierto orgullo, se anunció que una banda de chavalos de Monterrey eran los primeros en tener un video en la rotación de los canales norteamericanos de MTV. Mr P. Mosh sonaba duro en radio y me pareció buena canción pero también, como muchos productos del momento me sonaba a `rap en español' (anglo-ñol más bien), es decir más de lo que ya había mucho (Machete, Molotov, etc). Por casualidad me tocó escuchar la entrevista y el disco completo en una de las estaciones de radio local (D99). Me cayó muy bien su socarronería y su falsa pedantería, pero sobre todo "I've got that Milton Pacheco Kinda Felling" me cimbró, compré el disco al siguiente día, y aun lo escucho. Como en ese momento y casi en cada disco de lo plastilocos hay cosas que descubrir. Hola Chicuelos me decepcionó la primera vez que lo escuché; un tanto oscuro, con su sonido casero de estudio-cochera, me sonó a un disco hecho sólo para sus cuates. Un año después no dejaba de escucharlo, y creo que a la fecha es uno de mis favoritos. En fin, cada disco tiene sus sorpresas, chistes de acción retardada, atmósferas instantáneas, micro-narrativas y personajes violentamente cursis y entrañables. Mi juicio el día de hoy es que All U need is Mosh es un álbum más cercano a Juan Manuel; bien trabajado, mezclado y con un sonido más deliberado que orgánico, bastante más Rock-Pop y New Wave que los anteriores. En lo personal extraño un poco la onda `jazz-soul' de Hola y Aquamosh, sin embargo espero al seguir escuchándolo ir descubriendo esta música que a más de diez años me sigue gustando y aun me hace bailar.

P.D. No coincido con quien dice que no han hecho una buena traducción y que las letras en inglés suenan "raras", me parece que aunque los errores sean genuinos están hecho a propósito, son parte de la estética Mosh. Digo, las letras en español tampoco tienen much lógica ni un sentido común."
So good

"I don't have time to write a very thoughtful entry. Suffice to say the 80's-vibe track "Toll Free" is one of the freshest, fun songs I've heard in the past few weeks. I hope the rest of the album is as catchy."
