It's a safe album, almost exactly what you'd expect from Chao. The artist continues to be the best (perhaps only) provider out there of Clash-inspired polylingual punk rock, but for a musician who built his solo reputation on quirkiness and innovation, the disc feels a bit flat.
MojoIn Europe, Manu Chao shifts albums by the millions, but there is little here to make one think Britain is missing out. [Oct 2007, p.104]
LucasC.Sep 12, 2007Excellent.
AndrejSep 27, 2007If it is possible, I would vote not just 10, but 10+! It is surprisingly sad, but in same time very vibrant and positive CD.
TamaraN.Oct 16, 2007It takes me to so many places in the world in the stagnant air of my small living room!
GiorgosL.Sep 22, 2007Better than esperanza, worse than clandestino or dimance a bamako - worth listening to.
pix101Sep 13, 2007Got nothing on Clandestino or Esperanza, but still worth a listen!!

There I was deeply disappointed in this CD. I am a HUGE Manu Chao fan and this latest album seemed to me like a scattered, disorganized mess. There is obviously a message somewhere in there, but tragically it got lost in a sea of electric guitar tracks and...more electric guitar tracks. Whatever his latest influence is, it needs replacing. Go back to your roots, Manu!… Expand
