Album Review

By the time of 2016's Espejos, Sebastián Litmanovich had been making records under the name Cineplexx for almost two decades. Sometimes gentle electropop, sometimes pastoral indie pop, and in the case of 2014's Florianopolis, bubbling disco-pop, the one constant during that span was the overall high quality of each release. Anything with Cineplexx on the cover was sure to be warm, inviting, and filled to the top with light and sweet pop music. It's no different here, as Litmanovich delivers a batch of easygoing songs that showcase his skillful production and touch on a wide range of styles. He hasn't entirely gotten over the disco bug; tracks like "Hipnotizado" and the very smooth "Besos" have a slow-motion nocturnal feel that makes them perfect late-night comedown jams. Others, like "Sin Control," sound fit for the middle of the night, when the party is in full swing. There are also tracks that exhibit more Latin influence than he's shown in the recent past, with a strong bunch of swooning ballads like "Manipulador" and "Gran Dolor" sporting melodies that sound very traditional and romantic. The rest of the album is very slick, very sophisticated modern pop that has synthesizers rounding off the sharp edges and lots of vocal harmonies to provide a pillowy cushion. It's all a little more professional-sounding than much of the music Cineplexx has made, but it doesn't really suffer for the extra layer of studio gloss Litmanovich applies. The warmth of the melodies comes through no matter how shiny the surroundings, his intrinsic tenderness survives the process, and the songs have the same sneaky good hooks that Cineplexx songs and albums have always had. The styles may change and the approach may be a little different, but fans of the band and Litmanovich can rest assured that the quality will stay the same if Espejos is any indication.
