Album Review

Although Pereza does not like to be compared to bands like Tequila or Los Rodríguez, the truth is that for the needed musical references, it is not possible to overlook the similarities with the those groups (listen to the beginning of "Súper Hermanas"). It is obvious that this band from Madrid perfectly embodies the '80s Spanish rock image and, being so evident (and maybe too excessive) it seems necessary to separate this strong image from their music. Something commendable about this album is that, in its polarized style between pop/rock and soft pop, it gets some good material from both genres. The pop we have become accustomed to throughout Pereza's career reflects the most superficial difficulties and bitterness of love, typically of the adolescent. Here we find "Dos Gotas," "Margot," (with Iván Ferreiro participating in the background sounds) or "Estrella Polar" (with the collaboration of Juan Aguirre). Contrary to what you may expect, this adolescent pop works, but it goes only as deep as its juvenile market can digest. An exception to this, however, is "Por Mi Tripa," which relates a story about a cocaine addict, and is a welcome change-up. The band use rock-ish guitars throughout the abum, even in such silky songsa s "Tristeza." On the other hand, it looks like the contributions of figures like producer Nigel Walker (whose collaborators have included Bob Dylan, Tom Petty and Aerosmith) and, above all, the Stones' Mick Taylor, have influence on songs like "Grupis" or "Súper Hermanas" where an resemblance to the first Rolling Stones is evident (specially in the second half of "Súper Hermanas"). To conclude, it is possible to add a third category in the style of this Pereza's fourth studio album, and this would be the empty-songs genre, with two or three chords repeated to the infinity and lyrics you forget once listened. Within this forgettable group of songs we find "Frágiles" o "Beatles," this latter a tribute to the Liverpool quartet with a ridiculous final touch "She's got a ticket to ride / but she don't care."

Madrid-based rock group Pereza (Laziness) were formed by bass player Leiva and guitarist Rubén Pozo in the late '90s. Both Rubén and Leiva were experienced musicians at the time of Pereza's formation, Rubén a former member of Buenos Noches Rose and Leiva formerly of Malahierba. The band hit the ground running, and early releases such as Patitos Feos and Calaveras y Diablitos established a strong grassroots fan base for the emerging rock innovators. Pereza attracted label attention shortly thereafter,...
