    Isn't his best album, and the songs aren't as memorable as they usually are with Rouse, but it's a welcome change of pace. Half of the album is in Spanish and it sounds beautiful.

  1. The result is a globe-trotting pop album that sounds like nothing he's attempted before, yet still retains enough of his signature arrangements to make Rouse’s multi-ethnic transformation a believable one.
  2. 62
    This is merely alright, but it will surely need to burn slower to penetrate the heart.
  3. Most of the songs on El Turista look to home and away as places and times of reassurance and comfort.
