I was over the moon when I discovered Chico Trujillo's 2010 CD, CHICO DE ORO (for some reason re-released the next year with most of the same songs in different order as CUMBIA CHILOMBIANA). I've heard they have other CDs in their native Chile, but I've been unable to find them here.

Now, at last, a new album, and it's even better than ORO. Comparisons with Argentina's Fabulosos Cadillacs are inevitable--the wonderfully complex horn lines, the irresistible melodies, clever lyrics, and punkish blend of Latin music styles are all similar. They also remind me of Austin's brilliant Grupo Fantasma, another gonzo cumbia outfit. If you've been jonesing for something that will get you off like the Cadillacs in their prime (like EL LEON prime), look no further. I've barely been able to take this out of my CD player for weeks.

Even the lesser material--like the shamelessly sexist "Linda secretaria"--has such powerful hooks that you'll be hard pressed not to sing along. And instead of being front-loaded, like so many albums, GRAN PECADOR just gets better and better as it goes, climaxing with the 1-2-3 punch of the rip-roaring "Negra santa," the gorgeous, sad, spare, and completely un-ironic "Fuera de mi vida," and the stunning "Fiesta de San Benito," which incorporates haunting Andean indigenous melodies (think Inti-Illimani) in its powerhouse horn lines.

My only complaint is that the CD includes four "bonus tracks" that are simply highlights from CHICO DE ORO. GRAN PECADOR doesn't need them.

This is an instant classic, required listening for fans of Manu Chao, Sargent Garcia, the Cadillacs, or Grupo Fantasma.

This is a real record. It is not just a rehashing of old cumbia classics. It is fun and engaging. It is easy to tell that the band really enjoys what they do and do it well. This is probably the most polished of their records - it starts off with a groove that reminds me of The Doors...What?! Awesome..

This I was hoping to be more in love with this one. Kind of a disappointment.
