Editorial Reviews

With the success of their previous Grammy-winning album "Oye", Aterciopelados landed on countless critics' year-end top ten lists, had their music featured in popular video games like EA Games FIFA, and toured extensively. They'll launch a major market US tour in support of this, their new studio album. Co-founders Andrea Echeverri and Hector Buitrago both released attention-grabbing solo albums (Echeverri's received two Grammy nominations), further building anticipation of the band's new release.

Aterciopelados finest yet! The fusion of musical styles on this album and seamlessly interwoven political themes is a fine example of what this band is all about. "RIO" has Grammy written all over it.

I was lucky enough to receive a promo copy of this album and I could not wait till release day to tell the world how incredibly important this album, music and group is!!! I first heard about Aterciopelados when I heard lead singer, Andrea Echeverri on public radio a few years ago and was hooked. I began to Google her and learn about her punk rock roots and journeys through genres with musical partner, Hector Buitrago [with a solo album to his name as well] - and their live shows [thank god for youtube!]! As a woman, instantly I was taken by her powerful voice, poetic lyrics and sheer love of her own femininity.

On Aterciopelados' new album, "Rio" - along with the incredibly talented, Hector Buitrago, the group take it to a new level. I was aware they won a Latin Grammy for their last album "Oye" - yet, this album feels heavier and speaks to the world we live in; given the context of these times, it is a welcome soundtrack for hope, healing and growth. The album art alone is a beautiful testimony to life, water and color... [to contrast the concrete in Bogota].

The album starts off with the song "Rio" - a call to the rivers, to return back to their purest form - calling back the fish...it's a powerful song and lush in its arrangement. The album takes you on to different tempos, landscapes and sounds. A favorite song of mine, "Tomate" is a playful juxtaposition to more serious songs like "Bandera" - which speak about the violent nature of immigration and borders. The record ends calmly with "Aguita" - with traditional Andean flutes to carry you away to what is next...

Hasta la proxima...

Without a doubt "Rio" is their best album yet, music with conscience, with a sense of humor, with life's joy.
Get it now, this will be one of the most important release of 2008.

Andrea's voice has aged. This is not abby-normal, and in some artists' careers it can range from aging like fine wine (Bryan Ferry) to the sound of Katherine Hepburn trying to start a car (Jane Birkin). Andrea's voice falters here and there, but that's not the major fault with the record, the production, or the music style, but with the bad songs she is forced to sing. On this album it sounds like a bunch or revived throwaways or B sides that needed to be either completely overhauled or forgotten. A fair comparison to this album is XTC's "Oranges & Lemons". perhaps they needed more time to work on these songs or write better ones.I don't know. If you ever heard "La Pipa De La Paz", then this album is a great disappointment.

One comment I keep hearing from people about Los Aterciopelados is that they don't evolve with their music. I have to say that I agree with that especially when I feel that they are one of the few latin music bands that can definitely take things to another level. Why isn't it happening? Who knows. Perhaps they found their niche and so they don't feel the need to challenge themselves anymore including the work they did on their solo albums. That's fair game I guess. But not when it came to their last album OYE which i found absolutely dull. I felt then that I have lost all hopes on the band. Then I was surprised to hear that they're releasing a new album called RIO and yes, I was skeptical at first. I'm glad I checked it out because it is a good record. Not great but good enough. It's not inventive per say but it has the spirit of their past best work. Highlights for me are Rio, Bandera, Dia Paranormal, Madre, and Vals.

Andrea and Hector are back with another stellar effort. Great to see Aterciopelados continuing to grow with each release. My favorite track is the self-titled "Rio."
