Product Description

Amazon.com

Residente o Visitante arrives less than two years after Calle 13 busted out of reggaeton's oft-repetitive confines with its searing debut disc. But instead of playing it safe, the dynamic duo of Rene Perez and Eduardo Cabra fly further outside the safe zone. Residente o Visitante is dirtier and more diverse than its predecessor, typified by the jaw-dropping intro. It's a solemn chorus of voices simply repeating Spanish expletives. From there, the disc explores political struggle, carnal desire, and the trappings of fame--all anchored by Calle 13's razor-sharp sense of humor. Tango, lounge grooves, and cumbia rhythms collide with reggaeton in ways that shouldn't work, but do so wonderfully. The standout track "Mala Suerte Con el 13" is a dysfunctional duet with Mala Rodriguez that turns love-song cliches upside down--and slaps them on the behind. You'll need to take a shower after the first listen--and immediately put it on repeat. --Joey Guerra

Sophomore jinx or no, the newest by Calle 13 is, uh, interesting. It starts with a university choir blaring profanities to see if the listener can be easily shocked. In comes "Tango del Pecado", nice Argentinean tango riff, with lyrics deeply tongue in cheek about Residente's avowed relationship with former Miss Universe, Denisse Quiñones. He deserves credit for summarizing the sentiments of every son-in-law-to-be who has experienced scorn or pure hatred by his loved one's parents, with a healthy, deeply cyinical dose of humor. And we've only gone past the first two tracks.

Most of this album is the usual Residente braggadoccio, mixed with irreverence, deeply sexual language (both suggested and direct), and absurd mental images to the extreme. Visitante's take on this (he claims this is a snapshot in the hectic life of Puerto Rico's fastest growing hip hop group) rings true. It lacks "playable" tracks, in the sense of radio-friendly hits, besides "La Cumbia de los Aburridos" (where Residente ridicules anyone who dares to dance it with extra physical baggage or lack of rhythm, as will probably be the case now that their music is the rage everywhere).

The album shows a deepening musical maturity, compared to which, the lyrics are a bit of a let-down. However, "Pa'l Norte" and "La Crema" are deeply political, brutally honest tracks. "La Crema" reminds us of what Calle 13 would have become had the guys not become famous in the past two years: in-your-face hip hop directness, on a track that states, essentially, that Residente is merely a product of the culture he's rapping about, warts and all.

I was very surprised by this album in the sense that I did not expect it to be this good. The music is really what makes this album great. Calle 13 has evolved in a way not many hip hop/reggaeton artists do. But lets not forget Residente's lyrics, which evoke so many different feelings in you, its amazing (anything from pure disgust to laugh out loud funny). Is there profanity? Sure, more than I expected. Am I offended or somehow turned off by this? Hell no! For me that is actually part of its charm.

My top 6 tracks are:

Tango del pecado - truly innovative mixing neo tango with a reggaeton beat, loved it.

Sin Exagerar - pokes fun at most of the exaggerations made by most hip hop and reggaeton artists, while Tego blasts against the government. Excellent track.

Mala Suerte con el 13 - I like it because, at the end of the day, if you think about it, he is making fun of all the dudes who say they have big D*cks and last a lot in bed (among other undertones in the song). Certainly not for the faint of heart.

Pal Norte - great collaboration with Orishas, the song is thought provoking and a has a catchy corus to boot.

La Crema - if you are from Puerto Rico this song speaks to you (Un besito a Titi Chagua, classic).

La Era de la Copiaera - from the intro and outro, to the hook, this song is fantastic (Ah! Y dejen de fumar marihuana...)

Overall this album can't be classified under anything other than Latin. Sample it before buying because its obvious people either like it or hate it, however don't just trash the album just because of the profanity, to do that is to be as closed minded as the people they are making fun of...

"Por que no me chupan el pito...repito"

Calle 13, the winner of 3 Latin Grammys and 1 Latin American MTV Award are extremely diverse on this new album. The Puerto Rican born duo Calle 13 are representing their native homeland extremely well in the genre of Reggeaton. As we know Reggaeton has been growing temendously all throughot the world, but especially Latin America. Residente o Visitante acknowledges that and pays tribute to different types of Latin music. Their first single "Tango del Pecado" has a blend of Tango from Spain, good mix! What can you expect the rest of the album... well an evolution of head banging beats from countries like Spain, Colombia, Brazil, Peru-Ecuaodr & Bolivia(The Andes), Mexico and many more!!!!

The album has Reggaeton fire in its heart, but each track blends beautifully with genres like Cumbia, Rock, Tango, Bossa Nova, Funk, Pop & reggae. More than an evolution Calle 13 has created their own flavor of what REGGEATON can be.

Artists like Ivy Queen were pissed off when calle 13 won 3 Latin Grammys, but the reason why they probably won is the same reason why this album is completely different from the rest. Residente o Visitante grows out of the same beats from Luny Tunes, Tainy, Nelly La Mente Maestra, DJ Urba & Monseratte, DJ Nelson & others ( whom are still all great producers and have made various hot beats)... they offer something more than street beats.

Daddy Yankee, Don Omar, Hector El Father, Wisin Y Yandel are all great Reggeaton artists but CALLE 13 could be argued that lyrically destroys some of these artists. Calle 13 spits flames and has much more diverse topics to talk about. These guys better watch out, Calle 13 has style that these "gangsters" don't even understand.
