    This is yet another great album from Bajofondo. The variation (from rap to progressive styles) in the music sounds great altogether and the subtle electronic influence makes the music flow perfectly, making it a sweet, soothing ride from the beginning to the end. Very, very recommended.

    The best album of the year until now. The mix of tango and electronic music with the addition of great singers gives as result a memorable album.

  1. Mar Dulce has to be counted as a success, certainly because the combined effect of songwriting, performance, and production sounds of a piece, with few seams showing.
  2. Tango remains the constant for Bajofondo, but the 17 tracks offer quite a few variations on a theme.
  3. There are four reasons why this album is necessary: firstly, it will make any party you happen to be soundtracking sound very clever. Secondly, following the samples and contributions will open up a whole world of modern and traditional music from the Southern Cone to you. Thirdly, both live and on stage, tracks like Pa'bailar rock a squeezebox like you've never heard. And, finally, Ry Cooder is nowhere in sight.
