Editors’ Notes

Mexico City's CafŽ Tacuba returned after a four-year absence with Cuatro Caminos, another ambitious, often madly catchy work. Less experimental than some earlier Tacuba albums - Reves/Yosoy, for instance, which found them collaborating with the Kronos Quartet - Caminos still covers a wide swath of stylistic ground. (Longtime Flaming Lips producer Dave Fridmann and Ween cohort Andrew Weiss each helm three cuts.) The set's first track, "Cero y Uno," opens with a lockstep electro beat before kicking into a full-on rock beat; singer ƒlfego Buend’a's gutsy, nagging delivery pulls you in quickly. Elsewhere, there are stabs at off-center punk ("Eo"), Radiohead-esque art rock ("Encantamiento Inœtil"), psychedelic pop ("Eres," featuring multi-instrumentalist Emmanuel del Real's lead vocals), and amusing metallic clangor ("Soy o Estoy"). The album won a 2003 Grammy for Best Latin Rock/Alternative Album -and deserved it.

Customer Reviews

Best Purchase All Year

This is some of the best music I've come across ever. Cafe Tacuba inspires me to finally learn Spanish! As it is, the power of the music overwhelms any language barrier. Buy the whole album!

Rock En Español's best!

Simply put, the best album of 2003 (in any genre). [There hasn't been a better Rock En Español album released since Cuatro Caminos came out.]

Cafe Tacuba...en la cumbre

Cafe Tacuba puede ser ahora mismo una de las mejores bandas en cualquier idioma. Cuatro Caminos es indiscutiblemente un disco dificil de superar. La cancion "Eres", puede ser junto a "Maria" una de las mejores de la banda. Canciones recomendadas: "Eres", "Encantamiento Inutil", "Mediodia" y "Eo", estas canciones estaran en tu playlist, te lo garantizo.

Biography

Formed: 1989 in Mexico City, Mexico

Genre: Latin Alternative & Rock

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

With rare objection, Café Tacuba is credited far and wide as the preeminent band to have arisen from the rock en español movement of the early '90s. The Mexican four-piece unfortunately isn't well characterized by the rock en español tag, for the "rock music sung in Spanish" descriptor does little justice to the stylistic diversity and creative strides showcased by Café Tacuba over the course of their career. The band employs a standard rock lineup of guitar/bass/drums with vocals, certainly, but...
