With this album, Mecano graduated from being a disposable bubblegum band to being a real pop/rock band.
Aparato SuperSonico
It was an epiphany, the sweetness of Ana's voice in my ears, and being lead by Jose's wonderful melodies and Nacho's extraordinary beats.
Yuri Orellana
There was an enormous transition between their third CD Ya Viene El Sol in 1984 and this classic that is unexplained for.

Mecano was a Spanish group that set a trend for Latin pop. It likened its sensibilities to the kind of rock/pop that was most famous in the United States and in Britain. Not quite New Wave, it was a synth heavy, intricately weaved song structure and featuring a quintissential girl lead singer, which at around 1982 when their first album came out was a main cup of tea.

Entre El Cielo Y El Suelo (In Between Heaven And The Floor) is the group's fourth and finest studio record. Released in 1986, it perfects all the aspects that made Mecano great in the first place and pushed the envelope in terms of songwriting, aesthetics, and harmonics. Their first CD was a fresh sounding concoction, featuring the band's signature songs, amid other more uneven songs whose fault was more of a lyrical immaturity than anything else. The next couple of Mecano records delved into this immaturity. They wanted to experiment within the boundaries of commercial pop and did so but in a very flawed matter.

There was an enormous transition between their third CD Ya Viene El Sol in 1984 and this classic that is unexplained for. Perhaps the reason for this was because one of the Cano brothers (Jose Maria) started contributing regular compositions and he proved to be unequivocally the better songwriter of the two brothers. Also the production is more assured and this record boasts a new batch of Mecano classics, such as Hijo De La Luna, perhaps the finest song in the group's catalog. There is not a single weak track in the record. It's a mesmerizing case of pitch perfect inspiration that elevated the status of a group that was starting to remain purely a cult hit. Entre El Suelo Y El Cielo amplifies them as the finest Latin pop group of the 1980s. The spectrum was theirs and theirs alone.

I don't speak Spanish. The only reason I ever heard this CD, or know the gist of some of the songs is because of my Mexican girlfriend. Although at first I thought some songs were a bit cheesy sounding (I had only the music to go on), the tunes grew on me FAST and I realized (after getting clued in to some of the lyrics) that what I perceived as cheese was inventiveness, confidence, and attitude. Though I still can't understand the words, in my opinion this album stands up with ANY pop album of the mid-late 80's/early 90's no question. Any true fan of pop is doing themselves a disservice to overlook this album.

MECANO is simply the greatest spanish pop band ever. Unfortunately, many people around the world will miss this great music because of the language. But everyone should listen, at least once, to this album. "Entre el cielo y el suelo" is the album that proved Mecano's evolution. It's the album that opened the doors for Latin America. It's also the album that released more than 7 #1's. 12 masterpieces, with highlights as "Hijo de la luna", "Cruz de navajas", 12 stories that changed my life forever... This is a powerful album, that captured the sound of the spanish 80's pop.

If you have listened Mecano music this is a CD that you must have. Only with Hijo de la Luna and cruz de Navajas this is a worth CD. Hijo de la Luna,(moon's son) a beatiful song about a legend of the moon, one of the greatest songs in Spanish ever made, Cruz de Navajas, a pretty song about an ordinary life in Spain, Me Cuesta tanto Olvidarte (It's so difficult to forget you), the summit of love. A great CD.

This CD is the stuff that Mecano fanaticism is made of. There isn't a bad song on the album, which was recorded at the height of the group's fame in Spain and all over the Spanish-speaking world. Worth the purchase even it's only to have the amazing "Me Cuesta tanto olvidarte". Awesome and moving.

The local Spanish radio statin played Mecano's "Cruz de Navaja," a song that showcased the vocalist's pristine voice and the band's versitle musical ability. The lyrics of all Mecano's songs are truly poetic and capture with great precision sundry emotions of life's experiences. The audio quality of the vinyl album was disappointing; however, the cd mfg. in Spain by Ariola proved to be a far supperior listening experience. This album peaked my interest in the group, so-mcuh-so, that I have purchased other Mecano albums. They too have been quite impressive. Currently, I appreciate various albums that Ana Torroja has recorded as a soloist. Her songs, lyrics and vocals are no less beautiful or refreshing than her preformances with Mecano. "Entre El Cielo Y El Suelo" provides great listening pleasure and thought provoking lyrics that awakens an energized curiosity in the listener each time songs or the entire album is played

"Entre el Cielo y el El Suelo" is, by far, the best album ever recorded. It has all an album needs: feeling, excellent lyrics and never-to-be-forgotten-once-is-listened tunes. Mecano redefines music as we know it with this album. "Hijo de la Luna" and "Me Cuesta Tanto Olvidarte" are truly masterpieces.

There are no words to describe the sheer brilliance of this record. The opener "ay,que pesado" showcases the band's mellow pop style perfectly as it features a fine display of Ana Torrojas beautiful voice and a sweet combination of bass,piano and guitar. The most famous song on this is "hijo de la luna" which is a haunting tune that would be a good background piece for a scary movie, as well this is a song used by figure skaters, it is one of the most deepest songs that you can imagine, and the lyrics are brilliant. My personal favrot song is "no tienes nada que perder" which features a beautiful chorus. "el cuerpo de esa chica" is used in commercials in mexico, and is a very catchy, danceable tune that parts remind me of the B52's, overall it is one of mecanos best. Also "angel","cruz de navajas" and "50 palabras..." are excellent. If you like Enya you will probably get into Mecano, if you like new age, I think you'd enjoy this also. This is without doubt one of the greatest pop records of all time!
