If there is another popular music artist anywhere in the world who has had a run like Calle 13's in the past 5 years, I would love to hear about them. Calle 13's first album was sensational, and each of the next three has shown growth, exploration, and self-assurance. While record #2, Residente o Visitante, remains my favorite (for the moment, at least), this latest offering makes an awfully strong case for itself. There isn't a bad track on it, or even a mediocre one. Eduardo (Visitante) Cabra has gone from being a DJ playing with a Casio to a full-fledged songwriter and music director, with command over a wide variety of music and a supertight band of live players. Rene Perez remains as skilled a wordsmith as ever, and has even tamed some of his Tourette's -- this record is notable for being great without being offensive, or at least hardly ever. His flow is superb. Even little sister Ileana Cabra sounds great (and is featured on almost every song). Standout tracks for me are . . . all of them! Even the hilarious intro -- if you are downloading, that's worth the $.99. Calma Pueblo features scorching rock (as do a few other tracks), but Calle 13's exploration of other Latin music forms continues throughout the record, and Muerte en Hawaii even features a ukulele and a Jack-Johnson-y sweet folk-rap. My only small sense of disappointment comes from the fact that it's not as funny, as sexy, or as food-obsessed as previous Calle 13 records. (There's still some humor and some sex, but hardly any food, even in closer "Preparame la cena".)

Obsessed with this album. Have listened it to it 5 x's a week for about 2 years, mostly when I exercise. So many interesting hooks and influences and "flavors." Very distinctive. My favorite Calle 13 album so far.

Si conoces la Musica de Calle 13 y te gusta, no hay nada que persar.. compralo! es probablemente su mejor si no segundo mejor disco. Si no conoces la musica de Calle 13.. pues donde as estado?? lol este grupo es increible. Si te gusta el rap de verda, que no solo abla de sexo,mujeres,parties,carros. Pues te va gustar este disco. Aunque los ultimos discos son mas reveldes y lyricamente mejores.. este tiene como mas "soul".. alma. las melodias son muy bonitas que te asen recordar a tu pais si vienes de Latino America. Tambien ay canciones reveldes y locas como sabe aser bien calle 13 pero ay canciones que te tocan el corazon y te acen persar del amor y la vida tambien. Lo Recomendo.

This must be the most original music act out of Latin America in the last ten years. This is not reggeton, its not hip hop, its not just latin music, is all that and so much more, and so are their lyrics. Some are powerful, angry; others are silly and fun. But on and all, you will definitely enjoy it, the music will keep playing in your mind, and and the words will resonate, they will make you think, and they will make you smile.

Like the music. However recently heard some songs from calle 13 from Feb 27 in NPR way better than these one; with smart yet poignat political undertones and awesome lyrics does anyone knows if there is a CD of the viral tunes? I like calle 13...they got guts!!!.

Bought this because two SF Giants players have a walk up song by them. Now I'm hooked!

Intelligent and passionate lyrics combined with masterful musical arrangements and contagious rhythms makes this one of the most creative and enjoyable albums out there. Every song puts forth a different type of music, which range from Latin American to rock and roll. Bravo! Highly recommended.
