Product Description & Reviews

It's hard to think of a more restless pop album than Juan Manuel. Stylistically, this disc is all over the place. Despite its lounge and kitsch elements, the spirit of this wildly eclectic CD is closer to playful exuberance than it is to camp. The opener, "Nordic Laser," recalls both New Orleans piano man Esquerita and the Terry Riley/John Cale collaboration Church of Anthrax. The mellow and funky "Shampoo" is propelled along by a groovy tabla part. "Human Disco Ball" and "Bassass (International Stereo)" feature four-on-the-floor rhythms and vocoder vocals, while "Supercombo Electronico" rocks out, Beastie Boys-style. "Arpoador" sounds like the Miles Davis classic In a Silent Way, but with an added layer of Latin and Indian percussion. "Graceland" manages to squeeze in an accordion and a sample of the Gil Evans Orchestra and still make it work. You name a musical genre and there's a good chance it's represented here. "Good Bye Happy Farm," the disc's closer, not only sports some nice old-fashioned Southern soul organ, but includes barnyard animal chatter, too. It's as if this duo from Monterrey, Mexico, didn't want to leave anything out. A perfect album for your next party. --Fred Cisterna
