Razteria’s 5th album unites ‘reggae, Latin grooves, rock, and powerful lyrics’ which often seem to be repeated until you want to spit that cheesiness out. A lot of the songs are rooted in social justice themes from ‘safe sex to illegal immigration’. Not the most composed music nor lyrical combination…but the 1st song is a jam!
FCC Clean Recommended: 1***, 7, 10, 11

***1 - (3:46) Aventurera – groovy ska beat with pretty Spanish lyrics and magical accompanying instrumentation -- island music anthem!!
2 - (4:11) Change – English lyrics mixed with Spanish rap (male and female) alongside rock backing- a bit repetitive
3 - (3:05) Life -  a bit more of the rocky power-chords with strange lyrics
4 - (3:37) Take My Hand – ska with male and female rap, really repetitive
5 - (4:03) Little Sister – sounds a bit like Cat Power and is very poppy
6 - (4:20) Once Again – some nice sax backing to Eng lyrics, gets dramatic at the end
**7 - (4:20) Zone – an ethereal ska jam with some trancy lyrics like!
8 - (3:20) Thankful – she’s really really thankful…
9 - (3:28) The World – an intoxicating motivating tune about the world shining…ew
**10 - (4:04) Winds – groovy lyrical convolution with some nice guitar-> like!
*11 - (3:20) Can’t Touch – a sensual jazzy groove, feelin it if youre in the moooood
12 - (4:20) Once Again - vocal remix of the 6th song
