  • Summary: The eclectic Mexican five-piece returns with a sophomore LP.

  1. The mightiest alterlatino album in many years. The sound is more rock-oriented and vibrant, and the band has actually learned to write songs.
  2. 90
    Something new has been born here; its parents are every form of dance and many forms of rock, and it rolls.
  3. Gives Kinky's vacuum-tight sound some breathing room. [5 Dec 2003, p.98]
  4. Electronic music that genuinely rocks.
  5. Atlas may lack the overall inventiveness of Kinky's self-titled debut, but the album still finds the Mexican electro-funk rockers in fine form. [Feb 2004, p.88]
  6. 70
    As sophomore albums go, Atlas is far from sophomoric. [Feb 2004, p.79]
  7. They can surely do far, far better.

    Excellent cd; I'm very glad I pursued this band three months after first hearing them. Kinky has some serious flavor, yo.
