Album Review

On this disc, (aka "Los Tokens con Mitch Margo-Esta Noche, el Leon Baila"), the Tokens go Latin all the way, including reversible-booklet cover artwork to make the album bilingually friendly in any kind of record-shop setting, and the results are one of the coolest, most original and downright listenable discs that's come down the pike this year. The boys have always sung like birds anyway, but the level of writing (Margo's "Only in My Dreams" is absolutely beautiful) and arranging on this disc this time around is something to hear in the sanctity of your home with the volume cranked up just enough to get dancing. This doesn't sound like a bunch of gringos attempting something, this sounds like the real deal, indeed. With a bilingual booklet filled with easy-to-follow dance steps (in lion pawprints, no less!) courtesy of the Fred Astaire Dance Studios, this is one fun project that you can tell that the guys had an absolute ball putting together.
