  1. The innocent appeal of Milagros’ tiny voice, though, is universal. And so is Aterciopelados’ music, which transcends all language barriers.
  2. The miracle of Aterciopelados is that it backs up its message songs with beautiful, infectious music. The Colombian duo's latest, Rio, is no exception
  3. Not only are each of the songs on Río unique; they're all impressive, adding up to a complete full-length album experience filled with highlights.
  4. Its sense of genre wanderlust means it's an album that clicks on about the third listen, revealing its character and depth much the way the seemingly random swirl on the cover becomes an alligator lurking just below the surface on further inspection.
  5. Girl's got flow, like Rio itself.
  6. 70
    Singing en español, clear-voiced Andrea Echeverri ponders subjects like immigration ('Bandera') and pregnancy ('28'), projecting unflappable confidence.
  7. 60
    While their new album never thrashes, it at least keeps its pretty bare feet on Mother Earth.
