Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Aleks Syntek's brainy pop persona expands admirably on Leccion de Vuelo. "Superficie Lunar" is an appealing blend of bluesy licks, psychedelic rock strains, and sci-fi accents. Syntek sounds like he's having a blast. "Historias de Danzón y Arrabal" offers elegant instrumentation perfect for a candlelight dinner and dance. And "Intocable" is pure pop shimmer, as shiny and strident as a boy-band anthem. But the disc is missing one crucial element: a unique musical identity. "La Doña Muerte" and "Entra" sound like leftover Juanes tunes, and "Laberinto," a promising collaboration with Belanova, could have used more neon fizz. Better is "¿Quién Soy?" a moody collaboration with Mex-pop duo Jesse y Joy. The rest is skippable pop filler, including "Hasta el Fin del Mundo" and the overlong, overly cutesy "Natalia." Syntek is a thoughtful singer and songwriter, but with a tighter focus, Leccion de Vuelo could have soared much higher. --Joey Guerra

Review

Espanol: Aleks Syntek Brainy la persona amplía el pop admirable lección sobre de Vuelo. "Superficie Lunar" es una atractiva mezcla de bluesy lame, las cepas de rock psicodélico, y de ciencia ficción acentos. Syntek suena como que haya una explosión. "Historias de Danzón y Arrabal" ofrece instrumentación elegante perfecto para una cena con velas y la danza. Y "Intocable" es puro brillo del pop, como brillantes y estridentes como un niño de la banda himno. Pero el disco que falta un elemento crucial: una identidad musical única. "La Doña Muerte" y "Entra" de sonido como melodías restos de Juanes, y "Laberinto", una prometedora colaboración con Belanova, podría haber utilizado más de neón Fizz. Mejor es "¿Quién Soy?" Moody una colaboración con Mex-pop dúo Jesse y Alegría. El resto es relleno skippable de pop, incluidos "Hasta el Fin del Mundo" y los largos, demasiado cutesy "Natalia". Syntek es un serio Cantante y compositor, pero con una mayor concentración, lección de Vuelo podría haber aumentado mucho mayor. - Joey Guerra -- Amazon.com

Lo volvió a hacer! Magnífico álbum en el cuál plasma su talento artístico y su buen humor. No cabe duda que lo hecho en México sigue y seguirá estando bien hecho.
Altamente recomendable.

One of the most-difficult challenges for any music artist is to generate new ideas that don't rehash existing ideas. And in his latest album, "Leccion de Vuelo", Aleks Syntek may have achieved this objective, with some ideas to spare.

The opening track, "Superficie Lunar," captures Syntek's youthful style of his "pre-Bienvenido" days. Yet is more-daring, with improvisation and exotic percussion cast in the old-school rock format. "Historias de Danzon...." is my favorite track on the album, combining a haunting acoustic fabric with a "techno" edge. "La Dona Muerte" is another daring tune, in the Tex-Mex style. With the artful, unpredictable harmonies and rhythms, it may be Syntek's most-brilliant composition of the CD. The emotional roller coaster "Intocable" may become Song of the Year. The original guitar hook and achingly-beautiful lyrics could make this song a timeless classic. "Hasta El Fin...." is a hard-hitting party tune a la Bon Jovi. "Natalia" is about Aleks' adorable hija, with her cute vocal gestures adorning a pleasant jazz-like setting. "Laberinto" may be modern pop, yet is so musical, you realize it's a true original. "Quien Soy" is a folksy, down-to-earth acoustic duet, my second-favorite tune on the CD. "Tu Hechizo" has a "Wang Chung" style dance flavor. "Entra" is unmistakably "Beatles"... With a John Lennon-like depth that is often lacking in other efforts to re-create the spirit of the Fab Four. And the title track, "Leccion de Vuelo", an experimental mix of electronic and acoustic, will leave the listener feeling as if the album is "unfinished business"..... Stay tuned....

The sound quality of this CD bucks the recent "loudness wars" trend in popular music. Like some of Syntek's other recordings, the sonics are exceptional. Kudos to Armando Avila for yet another sonic gem.

Brilliant music knows no limits, and flies to new, exotic places. A lesson, or leccion, that transcends language, culture, and generation.
