    I put this album on last night while hanging out with a few friends in the evening. This album has catchy tracks and very chill beats. The touch of strangeness with the mechanical beats and whimsical voices makes for an entertaining album.

    This album is an enthralling listen. "The One I Love" is a mysterious but joyful chamber pop tune. The instrumentation is unorthodox but very listenable. Beck seems to come to mind when trying to trace parallels or influences. Repetitive at times, but a repetition of a good idea.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. A very psychotic sound! I would not recommend this albun to anyone. People could pop pills with it, commit suicide or join troops of psyco-designers or "so called" artish people to end the planet in bad taste with a depressive mood of self compassion and pity for the crazy, those are also very trippy songs. I think there are better arrays of music in other groups and simply more original with real quality of creativity soothing for mind and soul, that doesn't hurt one's ears. Expand

    I really love this album. Kazu's voice is really sweet and moving. The band does really interesting, experimental songs. My favourite are Cat on Tin Roof, No More Honey & Penultimo. I also like the lyrics a lot. I really recommend it.

    At it's best, Barragan sounds like typically inventive musicians sleepily phoning it in. [No. 113, p.54]

    Even with Barragán’s sleepiness and sparseness, the malleability of a band like Blonde Redhead--especially one that continues to make music for the art of creation--is the same strength that has kept them relevant for so long.

    Just as poetic, mysterious, and bewitching as Blonde Redhead's more baroque albums, Barragán is a quietly audacious set of songs that ranks among the band's finest music.
