I don't speak a word of Spanish but I am a fan of Cypress Hill and Control Machete. After I heard that this was coming out I thought it would be interesting to listen to and after I heard "No Entiendes La Onda" ("How I Could Just Kill A Man" en espanol) that really decided me.
The sound of this album is roughly equivalent to the sound of each song in English, mostly. Because of the problems of translating between the two languages, there are often some beats which should (or, in the English versions, do) have lyrics on them or lyrics without beats - however the "homeless syllble syndrome", as a friend christened it - is hardly terminal.
The thing which is particularly interesting for students of cross-cultural linguistics is how rapping in a different language really puts a different tone on a familiar track. "How I Could Just Kill A Man" becomes a lot more menacing when performed in Spanish, while the emphasis on "Insane In The Brain" changes from the infamous sample to the elastic-tongued rapping when the song becomes "Loco En El Coco". In a purely subjective sense, it is very entertaining to listen to Real and Sen rapping "Medio loco en el coco/ido de la mente" over the "Insane" sample - although the song does lose the "Don't you know I'm loco?" intro and the sampled outro.
One rather bored afternoon I had the brainwave of translating these Spanish lyrics into English. I am still unsure whether it was due to Babelfish's inability to understand idiom or whether that is actually what the words were, but it is now almost impossible to take "Loco En El Coco" seriously again.

Format: Audio CD
Now THAT was an idea: "Let's make a greatest hits album, but let's redo all the songs en espanol!" I have always loved the Hill's canciones en espanol, especially Tres Equis and Latin Lingo from their first album.
If you listen carefully (and know some Spanish), you can tell that some of the lyrics had to be changed around in order to have the same meaning. Unfortunately, the songs that were translated into Spanish from English didn't seem to be as finely crafted as the ones that were originally written in Spanish (check out Siempre Peligroso). Now, I can't understand a lot of what they're rapping, but I can sense that some of the lyrics had to be compressed in order to fit in with the music. Unfortunately, this gives a different lyrical tempo to some of the songs and seems to change them. Not that this is entirely bad...it just takes a little getting used to if you've listened to the original versions enough to have the tempo down in your mind.
All in all, a very impressive album. I'd love to see an entire album of new songs written entirely en espanol.

After listening to this CD I was blown away. I had gained a greater appreciation for spanish music. In fact this new Cypress has inspired me to learn spanish. I feel like my mind is more open to try different music now. Thank you Cypress Hill for opening my eyes and my mind.

Simply said, Cypress fans HAVE to buy this album. Unlike typical Greatest Hits albums, the English->Spanish translation necessitates a different interpretation to convey their sentiment. Translating is harder than it seems and this album could (and should) be held up as a standard to all bilingual artists. It is obvious that Cypress, Mellow Man Ace, Jacken, Duke and Fermin IV put a lot of work into it. Often a lot of attention is paid to a more dance-oriented sound. Hopefully, this album will influence future artists and inspire a bit more diversity. Los Grandes Exitos puts CH ahead of all others as far as rhyming in Spanish is concerned.

Este nuevo disco de cypress es una recopilacion de sus grandes exitos en español, cabe destacar que la transferencia lirico-vocal del ingles al castellano está muy bien conseguida por parte de BREAL y SENDOG. Este disco contiene un tema original junto con FERMIN IV de CONTROL MACHETE "SIEMPRE PELIGROSO" con el cual nos demuestran que este grupo puede producir un album original en esta lengua.
