They kicked so much ..., and were so much fun, I LOVED it!
A. Nolte
I bought Reina as my first Kinky CD, it had only a few good tracks, but they were so good I had to buy more Kinky and I bought this one, their first CD.
Robert Thorbourne
This band is a great example of the musical revolution that is brewing in Mexico.

Kinky has come out of the gates with a debut album that puts them at the cutting edge of modern music. It's impossible to describe their style in a single word, as they cover so much territory with such aplomb that it defies easy description. Espanol, funk, electronica, folk, rock - they do justice to every lick, beat and rhythm they take on. Shades of Groove Armada, Ozomatli, even Rage Against The Machine, peek out here and there in these totally original, tightly performed and passionately executed songs. Not once does it sound as though they're pandering to the listener; rather, they seem to play whatever they feel best suits the songs, and they appear to have a deep, deep well from which to draw influences and inspiration.
Many of the tunes are almost theatrical in their ability to sound like snippets of TV, movie or commercial backgrounds. Much like Moby did with "Play", and Talking Heads did earlier, Kinky has set a new standard for aural landscapes encapsulated in crisp, short cuts. If there's any justice in the music world (and there rarely is) these five Mexicans will find a welcome audience across all genres and from all ages. Mas!!

kinky is a great "regiomontana" band who has a very special stile, this album convines electronic beats with very cool funky guitars and latin percussions,its cool that most of the sounds are made by a five men band and not by a dj. A great step for mexican music.If you like electro, funk, latin, batucada, or even rock music, you'll like it
100% recomendable, es un disco muy bien hecho, pura musica pachanguesca muy prendida para bailar tocada por una banda de 5 musicos.Una importante demostracion de la gran creatividad que existe en mexico y de la diversidad musical de monterrey.

Beginning with the first cut "Mas" with it's refrain "vamos queriendo mas y mas" the band sets the table for a delicious treat of Latin rock and electronica. The opening track is like Talking Heads in its heyday transplanted culturally to Monterrey, Mexico circa 2002. The hybrid sound is part nopal beat ala Nortec, groovy dance groove ala Plastilina Mosh and dance throwback disco beats. Add these elements and some, plus modern studio wizardry for quite a remarkable effect. This is a most refreshing sound that defies categorization. The band has a crisp sound with plenty of funk and vocals that complement their use of synthezers. There is something about this band that makes me think they are smart and know exactly what they are doing and having lots of fun in the process. Nearly all of the songs have qualities above and beyond the average dance band, these guys are on to something. With an abundance of catchy tunes one stands out in particularf entitled "Ejercicio #16. " The song has a metallic sounding electronic whip which is followed by a woman crying out in ecstacy after each thrashing. You'd have to hear the aaaaaahhhs and oooohhhhhs to understand the erotic nature of this bit of S&M dance groove . " Anorexic Freaks" gives another glimse into their twisted humor for the dance nation. If you like Venezuela's "Amigos Invisibles" than you'll love this disc as this group is similar but one step beyond. It is just a fun, high energy album that is totally different and unique. It's like neon lights in the rain, looking out through the strobe lights of a metro ride in Mexico City. A fantastic first release from a group that should have a bright future ahead of them. By this now and step into the future and look at the possibilities of Latin grooves to come.

After listening to their disappointing sophomore album, "Atlas", I was compelled to write about how great Kinky's debut effort actually is. This album is all about unabashed creativity, while not trying to target any specific market. The sound is all over the map - you'd like to put it in some neat little category but it won't fit there. It doesn't fit anywhere, and that's what's great about it. Full of energy, with electric guitars, conga drums, electro-beats, the occasional vocoder, goofy Spanish lyrics, it's hard not to get a buzz listening to this CD. Not only do their songs sound like they could be used in commercials, they ARE used in commercials (ie. "Mas" used for the Nissan Altima). I've seen these guys live and they pumped even more energy into their songs than what was on the CD, which is hard to believe, and this made listening to "Atlas" (which I was initially really excited about) all the more disappointing. Regardless, "Kinky" will stay as one my road-trip favorites for a long time to come.

To reinforce the other Bumbershoot reviews, these guys were a revelation! Inventive, high energy, pure shake-your-booty music, which is why I didn't mind the absence of a strong, lead singer. In fact, for these guys, it is a plus because it doesn't distract from the grooves they are laying down. Yes, the on-site store was SOLD OUT of their CDs the minute the concert was over!! So are others in the area, which helps explain why a bunch of us have stampeded here.

I'm a 15 year African American boy. I listen to everything spanning from rock to chill out. But when I heard the first single to this work of art I was completely hooked. It was so unlike anything I had heard but I liked the mix of hip hop, soul, latin, and rock. It's so original. The beats are nice and the flavor is bangin. Even though I'm a brotha who loves mostly hip hop and r&b, this group has reeled in a fan. If you get this album you will forever be a fan!!!!
