One of the best studio albums of the 90s
on December 28, 1999
This CD established Soda Stereo as one of the most artistically mature musical groups on the planet. In a different musical style than their previous releases, the music and words continued to be truly thought-provoking and intellectual, taking the listener back through 3 decades of rock and pop music in classic Soda style with such welcomed variety compared to the monotony of streamlined product generally dominating the musical markets. The utilization of 70s rock textures (sampled or not) was pioneering for 1995 (year of release), and the production was built with exquisite layers of sound, never overbearing, with excellent use of space (Alberti's percussion style helped this aspect). Cerati, one of the best rock guitarists of all time, works his magic as usual, not only melodically, but lyrically. Sueno Stereo shows again why Cerati is a true poet and awesome singer who writes amazing, intelligent and challenging lyrics sung with beauty. The whole production of this CD is superior. Unfortunately, the group would not make another studio album before disolving.
