Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Founded by Mexico's Leonel García and Argentina's Noel Shajris, Sin Bandera is a vocal duet that performs polished, extremely melodic pop songs celebrating the vicissitudes of love. The lyrics are in Spanish, but the group's sound is informed by the kind of glossy production values and palatable keyboard lines that define most mainstream American productions. That's not to say that Sin Bandera is totally devoid of the Latin tinge, however. The rhythmic structure of the opening "Para Alcanzarte," for instance, is enhanced by a percolating salsa line from pianist Hector Infanzon, and the sinuous, delicate ballad "A Primera Vista" includes the instrumental contribution of Joselo Rangel, lead guitarist of premier rock-en-español band Café Tacuba. Even though the duet's openly commercial aspirations are apparent throughout the album's 10 tracks, there's also a bohemian atmosphere that permeates the procedures, as if Sin Bandera had recorded these tunes in a solitary café, late at night, drunk with the power of their own poetry. Lovers of quality--and slightly melodramatic--Latin pop will think of Sin Bandera as an indispensable arrival to the genre. --Ernesto Lechner

5.0 out of 5 stars Saving music March 31, 2005
Format:Audio CD
While American music was stagnating and wholly uninspired in the last few years I was wondering if and when it would get it's act together. Mindless pop tunes with no soul autotuned to sterile perfection blared on every radio channel I knew that there had to be a glimmer of light somewhere to save music. I endured a few more years of this and finally it took me moving to San Diego California in 2002 to know that while American music had lost its passion the rest of the world however had not. Driving in my U-haul over the mountains east of San Diego the US channels faded to static and the Mexican stations took over. Soon I hear a sublime impassioned voice whispering passionately in Spanish. Though I do not understand Spanish the heartfelt emotions pouring from the singer backed by a wistful guitar, the message was clear. The music fanned the dieing embers of my heart and washed over me in a glorious candlelight. The Song I was as I have just recently found out was Sin Bandera's Te Vi Venir, easily the best piece of music I've heard anywhere, anyplace in the world in many years. My heart was inspired and the Romantic in me rekindled. I knew that hope had returned to music.

5.0 out of 5 stars VERY TALENTED DUO WITH SUBLIME, ELOQUENT LYRICS April 6, 2002
Format:Audio CD
The video for SB's "Entra En Mi Vida" has recieved extended stay on most of Latin America's play lists; as well it should. It is a very calculated and carefully planned performance, for it sends important information to the viewer about these impressive artists: This is a duo with a natural ability to harmonize round each other's phrasing. They both play a variety of instruments, hence the learned approach to their musical and lyric composition (the structure of each song is definitely solid, classically trained, and designed to showcase the best of their talent). And the results are wholly viceral, very enjoyable.
The difficulty lies in what one should notice first. The obvious subject is of course the vocal delivery. It is impeccable in both harmony and interpretation. Every one of these songs is a duet beautifully arranged and performed. When either Leonel or Noel, the entirety of SIN BANDERA, take the melody, the other wraps the harmony perfectly throughout the other's reading, without overlapping and "stepping over" each other. It is a perfect complement. What one hears is a rich, engaging performance. It is a staggering understatement to say that these artists have enchanting voices and enormous talent.
Next is the lyrics of this CD. Penned by the artists themselves, these compositions are at once elegant, eloquent, engaging, deliciously infectious, indelible, and utterly enviable. One wishes one could have thought of just this manner of expressing the elation of love, the poignancy of past loves longed after, and it's disappointments. Romantic is not word that does not come naturally here. It is strained. It has become a most trite and overwraught description, but approached from a traditional sense, there is little that is not romantic about this production on the whole.

5.0 out of 5 stars No Looking Back. Get it! July 2, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Sin Bandera is as good as it gets for easy listening music - the kind of stuff that lightens up your house if you leave it on as you work, and that makes you break into dance when you need a breather. Beautiful, clean harmonies and very neat recording/mixing work.
Just under half the songs in here are upbeat enough to make your feet restless (it's always time for me to get up and turn the music up when "Sirena" comes on!) while the rest are gorgeous ballads set a cut above average radio fare by fresh lyrics, seamless harmonizing and Sin Bandera's soulful voices.
As good as the original take is, I doubt that anyone needs two remixes for "Entra En Mi Vida" (they're not particularly inspired). Ah but if you don't have a choice and the regular album is no cheaper, why not. On the whole, a very very worthwhile addition to the frequent-play section of your CD collection!

5.0 out of 5 stars spectacular debut November 18, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Although I know only a little Spanish, this album has inspired me to learn more. Even without the language, the tone of the songs shines through - most of them are about love, and as the main review put it "slightly melodramatic" but full of heart and passion. I cannot stop listening to this CD except to put in their next one. Beyond the big hits of "Entra en mi vida" and "Kil-metros" are many other fantastic songs, in a variety of styles. That they write and play their own music only adds to my respect for the tremendous talent they possess. Buy this album- it has dance songs, love ballads, and brilliantly written melodies and lyrics that you won't be able to chase from your head. Better yet, pop it in the car CD player and sing along at full volume. :-) Then go buy "De Viaje", their next album. It's equally good, but for different reasons.

1.0 out of 5 stars Commercialized crap.
The only "music" given an opportunity in the mainstream continues to be crap. Regardless of language, this is lovey dovey superficial garbage. Unfortunately.
