Album Review

After a bitter power struggle between Caifanes' founding members Saul Hernández (vocals, guitar) and Alejandro Marcovich (guitar) culminated in the demise of the much-beloved Mexico City art rock unit, Hernández and drummer Alfonso Andre re-formed in 1995 under a new name, Jaguares (the new moniker was needed due to ownership of the Caifanes name being a key component of the Hernández-Marcovich conflict). Andre brought with him guitarist Jose Manuel Aguilera and bassist Federico Fong, one-time Caifanes sidemen and his bandmates in underground avant-garde favorites La Barranca. Although the songs are very much cut from the same cloth as songs from Caifanes, Jaguares' debut is nonetheless a tentative affair. Hernández had been plagued with recurring throat problems at the time and it definitely shows, not to mention being an obvious liability to the songs themselves. However, this did not prevent "Detrás de los Cerros" from becoming an international smash or "Díme Jaguar" a minor hit. While credit must be given to Aguilera and Fong for their nuanced performances throughout, this was a band whose best work would lie ahead.

Customer Reviews

"Extremadamente Sensacional"

Realmente esto ha sido de lo mas grande que se halla creado en Ciudad de Mexico, una banda de rock tan original y versatil es dificil de encontrar en la actualidad, JAGUARES ha sido una de ellas y porsupuesto orgullosamente de Mexico hoy por hoy ofrece una gran variedad de ritmos encontrados en sus canciones y porsupuesto con letras tan "De Poca Madre" ke no me queda o no sabria como explicar que Jaguares es lo maximo que ha dado Mexico y yo Enrique Bautista B. me declaro como un fan fiel a Caifanes-Jaguares y que viva el rock de Mexico...

Definitely worth listening to

Jaguares has a unique sound that has an obvious latin influence. The lyrics are subtle, but compelling. The guitar composure is soothing. This is definitely worth listening, especially since there is nothing else worth listening to right now.

Esencial

Este es el cd a tener de Jaguares. Es encantador de principio a fin. Guitarras embrujadoras. Letras envolventes. La voz de Saúl penetrante. Coros bellísimos en la voz de Cecilia Toussaint. Un consuelo para los que en la desintegración de Caifanes vieron el fin de una era. Es uno del puñado de discos que puedo escuchar de principio a fin.

Aunque mis gustos han cambiado a través de los años y ya no soy fan incondicional de esta banda, mi recomendación de este disco va a aquellos que tal vez no se han atrevido a escuchar a Jaguares, basándose en un disco como 45, por ejemplo. Para cualquier persona que gusta del buen rock, sea mexicano o hecho en cualquier lugar, este es un disco esencial.

In 1995, Jaguares was formed out of the skeleton of Califanes, a Mexico City rock group.

Shortly after the name change, Jaguares took off in popularity, becoming one of Mexico's most loved rock bands. Their first album, El Equilibrio de los Jaguares, released in 1996 by RCA International, built a solid fan base in a time when it was difficult for Mexican rock bands to get...
