    The pure beauty and emotion of Rosalia’s vocals and the sensational grooviness of her rhythms all speak for themselves, offering a fantastically fresh take on Latin flavours and modern urban pop.
  2. 100
    Rosalía isn’t so much carving out her own lane as building her own ultra-modern, super-bendy sonic motorway. It’s one you’ll want to hurtle down again and again.
  3. 100
    This is a spectacular record.
  4. Mar 18, 2022
    A stunning listening experience, even for longtime fans of Rosalía.
  5. Mar 18, 2022
    An album that not only marks Rosalia’s true arrival, it moves her toward the front line of today’s musical innovators.

    MOTOMAMI is experimental in a way that does not sacrifice function over form. These songs have a pop purpose: they are fragmented, but they are laid in catchy hooks and enthralling beats. MOTOMAMI doesn’t fail to entertain.
  7. Mar 18, 2022
    “Motomami” practically throbs with the freedom of someone flush with creative capital; its stylistic sprawl shares something with Beyoncé’s “Lemonade,” while the album’s mix of harsh noise and sculpted pop melody can recall the music M.I.A. made after “Paper Planes” became a left-field hit in the late 2000s.
  8. 90
    Motomami is the sound of an incredible voice indulging in her pop fantasy and excelling at it, but she makes sure to remind us as often as she can that really, she can do it all.
  9. Mar 18, 2022
    Motomami is as provocative and risky as it is creative. It showcases Rosalía as a master, twisting together the contradictory strands of Latin and Anglo pop with traditional and vanguard forms and fresh sounds into a gloriously articulated radical approach that makes for obsessive listening.
  10. Mar 18, 2022
    ‘MOTOMAMI’ blows away the lingering strictures of lockdown, and finds a true modern icon bathing in personal freedoms.
  11. Mar 21, 2022
    With a little help from an impressive array of collaborators and producers that include heavyweights like Pharrell Williams, El Guincho and Frank Dukes, Rosalía takes clear and complete control of her voice by getting her ideas across without being too caught up in them.
  12. Mar 18, 2022
    It feels rare to hear an album that’s so experimental, that aspires to stretch itself out across genres and play with form, and that attains exactly what it sets out to achieve.
  13. Mar 24, 2022
    In taking bits and fragments from both her previous work and that of her contemporaries, Rosalía has fashioned an album rife with the contradictory sounds, lyrical themes, and artistic impulses of the past and present.
  14. Mar 21, 2022
    The album’s feminist slant is “implicit” and reggaeton – the Latin American style heavily influenced by Caribbean sounds – powers a handful of sassy party flexes, a first for this artist, better known for her flamenco background. Staccato rhythms figure heavily, maintaining this unconventional pop artist’s edge. All that energy is balanced out by heartbreak on quieter ballads such as Como Un G and a handful of tracks where Rosalía’s first-class voice is allowed to take more traditional flight.
  15. Mar 18, 2022
    What she offers is a dizzying, kaleidoscopic self-portrait — brash and bawdy at some turns, crushingly vulnerable at other points, and completely ridiculous when it wants to be.
  16. Mar 18, 2022
    Those who wanted another full flamenco affair like El Mal Querer might be disappointed, but MOTOMAMI is an exciting detour where Rosalía flexes her seemingly limitless artistry across 16 tracks.
  17. Mar 18, 2022
    The highs here hedonistically bounce around big beats, and the ease in which Rosalía can rap coolly about her status and influence is just as easy as you get wrapped up in it. ... Sadly, Rosalía does not find a way to organise her many ideas well. The tracklist’s brisk changes in energy and awkward hard endings deny any chance of momentum-building.

    INCREÍBLE DISCO, es una montaña rusa de sonidos y emociones. Rosalía la mejor artista española del panorama

Se nota que su visión de toda la estructura de un proyecto proviene de referencias bien realizadas y estudios de la cultura misma. Quizás la única diferencia sería poder permitirse el lujo de camuflar toda una propuesta clara con una deliberada confusión inicial, porque presentar un disco tan llamativo de forma directa no tiene tanta gracia, aunque pueda alcanzar el mismo valor. Darse cuenta de todo esto es recordar que estamos ante alguien que disfruta de la riqueza en todos sus factores. Full Review »
