Ely Guerra is arguably, with the notable exception of Natalia Lafourcade's Hu Hu Hu, the only female Mexican musician that presents something new and refreshing with every album.

Without a doubt, this woman has a pair of cojones. Ely doesn't fit the industry standards and to be where she is now it has been a journey of sweat and blood. If "Lotofire" and "Sweet and Sour, Hot y Spicy" were too sophisticated for many mainstream ears, with "Hombre Invisible", Ely gives a kind slap to those who hadn't believed in her befote.

"Hombre Invisible" is arguably her best album (hard to say when every album is excellent), but sonically and vocally is perfect. The production is extraordinary, you can hear loops, many voice tracks, subtleties in her voice, music instruments she had never used before (mostly piano).

In every song, Ely breaks the formula of the traditional structure which makes "Hombre Invisible" her most experimental and spectacular album ("Stranger" ends suddenly in jazz, "Lento Funeral" has a Radioheadesque bridge, "Antes de septiembre" is like five songs in one, from bossa nova to dream pop, and "La Habitación" has 8 minutes of piano solo).

It's very important to note that the songs, which were inspired by loops created by talents such as Gustavo Santaolalla, Bunbury and Juanes, do NOT sound like them. Thank God. So it's impressive that Juanes is actually the one that originated the cornerstone track of the album "Antes de septiembre".

Lastly, Ely proves ironically in an album named "Invisible Man" that she doesn't need a man to create the best song in her career: "Colmena", a dream pop ballad that will make your skin crawl.

A great album indeed.

Ely Guerra releases another album filled with her poetic songwriting and appealing sound, winning a Latin Grammy Award for Best Alternative Album 2010. She has been called sensational, honest, sensual, and unique. In the 1990s she was on the cover of Time magazine with Julieta Venegas, introduced as one of the most promising performers in the Mexican rock scene. She constantly reinvents both her sound and image. In her albums at times she coos her way through songs, other types screams, and others belting.

The album opens with the smooth soft rock sound of "Lotano." "Stranger" is the first single off the album and a very catchy one. My personal favorite is "Colmena" where she sings in Spanish "You were like a sun...a beautiful thing...a breath in me...with the scent of mint." "Vale Que Tengas" is a great a cappella track. Other catchy songs are "You Really Love Me," "Antes De Septiembre," and "Mi Condicion."

Fans will most likely not be disappointed. Although, not as heavy as "Sweet & Sour. Hot & Spicy," the album varies in sound. Fans can expect another great album from Ely Guerra, a woman mature in her craft who challenges modern Pop Artists to do music for more than just selling albums.

What a waste of time and money. There is not one song I want to go back and listen to again. I'm a big Ely fan ( or I was), but there is no "Tengo Frio", "El Tiempo", "Pa Morrirse de Amor" or "De La Calle" found in this album. Just same old boring reusable tracks. The track "Lento Funeral" pretty much describes this album. It's a long hard to get thru CD and I wish I was dead by the end. Sorry Ely, this one is a not a Hit but a total miss.
