Album Review
Reviewed 2003-05-06
From Argentina, now in Montreal. A bit of rock, a little jazz, a lot of Gainsbourg-like spoken vocals. The band is good (as is the chorus), and the instrumental tracks aren’t too bad, but I’m not a big fan of his voice, which is gruff w/ frequently overly-dramatic tone. It’s ok, but I think he’s trying so hard to be cool that he’s pretentious.

1. Generic uptempo rock.
2. Nice percussion/flutes/use of chorus. Uptempo.
3. Slow and melodramatic.
4. Violin-driven dance which gets more serious.
*5. Pipes, chorus, better vocals than most. Upbeat.
*6. Relaxed, lightly jazzy mid-tempo instrumental.
7. Spoken-word against spare jazz. Very low key.
*8. Turns into a big jazz jam. Nice sax.
9. Uptempo chorus/jazz/driving percussion/piano. Not bad.
10. Down/mid tempo w/ kind of whiny vocal & strings.
11. Instrumental, updated folk dance w/strings/perc.
12. Uptempo jazz instrumental. Kind of anti-climactic.
13. Flutes, falsetto chorus, jazz band…why?
