I also like their album cover.
Guillermo H. Collin
This album really inspires my dance partner and I to practice our steps and moves and, of course, Dance the Tango together.
Jacob Felder
Bought the CD as soon as I left the concert, the CD is equally fun.

For those who are not familiar with traditional Tango nor heard any of the current representatives of its electro-forms, it worth knowing that Gustavo Santaolalla's production and leadership as well as Daniel Melingo's voice in a couple of tracks, makes this album something you ought to explore immediately.

Just like it happened with Astor Piazzolla--I'm comparing reactions to new versions of a traditional musical form, not suggesting that these guys are as revolutionary nor seminal as the great Piazzolla--any innovations performed on a genre as beloved like Tango will breed as many critics as new worshippers. I think this is equal parts respect for its traditonal forms as the unwillingness of some to accept the evolution of a powerful musical form.

That said, Bajofondo--along with Gotan Project--is a band to listen to if you are thinking of immersing yourself in the archetypal Argentine music' state of affairs. This particular album, to me, has built on their first and famous album, and taking it to a new level of depth. This is not an experiment, it is good music.

Besides Melingo's vocal contributions, there's a number of powerful tracks here, whether instrumental like Cristal, Zitarrosa or Borges y Paraguay, or thanks to some dead-on choices for vocals such as Elvis Costello in Fairly Right, Juan Subira--the song of the album--in Hoy , and Mala Rodriguez and Gustavo Ceratti's turns at the mike.

Santaolalla, as committed to Tango's classic composers as he is to exploring its outer edges, manages to keep things faithful to the mood of Buenos Aires without compromising the proverbial "pushing of the envelope.

Saw this group in SF at Stern Grove. Went to the event to see Si Se (who was wonderful), thought they would be the headliners. Was surprised that this group was the headliners. They had so much energy and fun on stage. Bought the CD as soon as I left the concert, the CD is equally fun. I haven't a clue what they are saying, but I love the music!!!!

Mar Dulce is another outstanding release by Bajofondo. They are the best electrotango musicians around. Excellent album. Highly recommended.

I am a big fan of fusion type sounds (Cafe Tacuba = modern pop/rock + Mexican folklore; Aterciopelados is the same but with Colombian traditional music; similarly Carlos Vives from Colombia)!

With Argentina being a mecca of "rock en espanol" as well as the center of Tango, I think this does a great job to capture one essence of a mixed Buenos Aires. I'm a big fan of Gustavo Santaolalla and he does well here!

Gotan Project and Otros Aires do it better. This music is not as inventive or "tango-y"--there are a few songs of interest, but on the whole, it's fairly generic.
