Pensé que ya se había inventado todo en el rock latino: clásico, progresivo, pesado, folclórico, bailable, hip hop, etc., pero nunca que fuera a escuchar algún día un disco como "Revés". Este disco te deja con la boca abierta, las secuencias electrónicas, las de cuerdas y clarinetes, y el baile típico "zapateado" son sorprendentes y únicas. Y "Yosoy" es un disco que se aleja totalmente de lo que hicieron los Tacubos en "Re" y "Avalancha de Exitos", ya no hay instrumentos típicos y letras festivas, las canciones son reposadas y muy profundas, también con una clara influencia electrónica. Café Tacuba está ahora a años luz de cualquier otra banda latina, y estos dos discos demuestran que el rock en español está más vivo que nunca y que puede compararse tranquilamente con el rock estadounidense o inglés. Y hasta superarlo...
I thought everything was already invented in Latin Rock: classic, progressive, heavy, folklore, dance, hip hop, etc., but I never thought I'd listen an album like "Revés". This album leaves your jaws wide open, the electronic tracks, besides the classic sequences and the folkloric kicking-floor dancing are amazing and unique. And "Yosoy" falls apart from the former albums "Re" and "Avalancha de Exitos", there aren't typical instruments and groovy lyrics, now the songs are quiet and very spiritual, also with a sharp electronic influence. Cafe Tacuba is lightyears away from other Latin bands, and this double album proves that Latin Rock is more alive than ever, it can be perfectly compared with and surpass over British and States' rock.

With Reves/Yosoy, Cafe Tacuba proves that they are not only the most unique band in the world, but also the most literate. Reves has got to be the best instrumental album of the 90's. Whether it's working with Kronos Quartet to simply using the stomping feet of Mexico's Ballet Folklorico, the album oozes a mixture of spontaneity and inventiveness that is rarely seen. However, Yosoy takes Cafe Tacuba to another level. It is a truly conceptual album without the pretentiosness of being conceptual. It does not stick its nose in the air and preach to us. It only tells us simple truths. The first song tells us about a kid who has turned into the man he most hates-his father. But instead of being disgusted with himself, he learns to see the world through his father's eyes and rejoices in his new found perspective. This is the way the album goes. It's a huge puzzle and every song seems to be an intricate piece to that puzzle. El Polen talks about the 'sex life' of pollen. Why? You have to listen to the person's self- loathing for himself in the previous song. As always with Cafe Tacuba, musical styles range from the simple(El Polen) to the musically rich(the very Beatlesque El Ave). I haven't heard an album that is so completely satisfying since Sgt. Pepper. If you speak spanish, buy this album. If you don't, get someone to translate it for you. It's a much tougher listen than Re and Avalancha de Exitos but, if you have patience, you will rewarded with an album for the ages. Viva la Banda Chilanga!

Where did this band come from? Or, more importantly, where have I been? The album Reves seems to be the Mexican equivelant of TNT by tortoise, and the second album has a more mainstream, yet still pastoral to the point of sublime. Their mastery of melody is remarkable; it is rare that you hear a hook these days that is completely fresh. Some pastoral music takes you to a familiar place, somewhere special, maybe nostalgic: this band takes me somewhere, but to a place completely new and foreign. It is very rare of a band to have that kind of effect on myself. This quality was present in early 80's era Midnight Oil, King Crimson, early Pink Floyd, and Brian Eno. However, never in this context. It is quite obvious that these people know what they are doing, and they are quite capable of the execution of their ideas. A must for those who listen for the true cutting edge of contemorary music.

If you just listen to this album once, you will be impressed by its fresh sound and by the amount of thought and experience that obviously went into its creation. Some songs are catchier than others. But if you listen several times, you will begin to see a pattern in the album that proves without a doubt that the Tacubanos are one of a kind. The lyrics, the instrumentals, the structures, the silent moments, even the credits- they all all support the main theme of the album which is in the title "Reverse"- opposites, reversals, complements. With each listening, I feel more refreshed and introspective. One of the best albums I have ever found.

The most appealing element that draws the listener in, after the first listening is its diversity of sound. The songs move in musical extremes(from tribal like drumming to short clasical pieces) with a subtle fluidity. The band simply doesn't seem to be pulled in to any particualr style for too long. Yet, each piece, regardless of its particular sound, appears to have been made with the utmost expertise within its corresponding musical structure. Overall it's just a stunning work in contemporary rock, from anywhere in the world. Ultimately Cafe Tacuba has completely redefined where pop music's full potential really lies.
