    Seems to hit all the right notes and grows on you, maybe not as lyrically accomplished as his other work but his voice sounds best on this album.

  1. Not everyone will want to follow Banhart's cosmic meanderings, but those who take the plunge will find much to feed their head. [Oct 2004, p.133]
  2. Unconventional harmonies and slurred vocals are an acquired taste, and some of the more out-there lyrical moments might bemuse you first time round, but give it a chance.
  3. Like its companion recording, Nino Rojo is about the shared delight of new encounters with music and language and is an adventure in the hearing.
