The soundtrack to one of Latin America's biggest films of last year. It follows the success of other influential films/soundtracks that have defined the new wave of Latin American cinema, such as "Amores Perros" and "Y Tu Mama Tambien". Highlights include Tanghetto's new "electro tango" version of the seminal New Order favorite "Blue Monday", and a re-working of the La Ley classic track, "Mentira" by Beto Cuevas, the vocalist from multi-Grammy winning artist La Ley, who also appears in the film.
The soundtrack to the biggest Latin American hunk-fest film of 2005, this 16-track collection is the best that the Spanish language alternative music scene has to offer. The story revolves around a wife who decides to trade an unsatisfying marriage for a clandestine affair with her husband's poet brother. Appropriately, the songs exude the hopefulness of initial romantic attraction, the sexiness of when the connection is consummated, and the chaos of when things turn bad. Kudos to A&R guy Terry Borden for picking the material, but the bands really deliver the goods. Tanghetto's techno-tango version of New Order's dance floor classic "Blue Monday" is absolute fun without losing the unstoppable groove of the original. The Pinker Tones "TMCR Grand Finale" is brown-eyed soul of the highest order, and Aterciopelados singer Andrea Echeverri's "Baby Blues" is a strong intimate effort from this star. As far as soundtracks go, this is on a par with the great Y Tu Mama Tambien. --Tad Hendrickson
