Editors’ Notes

Café Tacvba isn’t nearly as well known in the U.S. as it is in Latin America, but the Mexican quartet is one of the best rock bands anywhere. El Objeto Antes Llamada Disco—Café Tacvba’s first full-length since 2007’s Sino—was worth the wait. It's a finely crafted effort, displaying the sort of ambition and scope that's become rare in rock in recent years. (The tracks were recorded live, but that fact is hard to detect.) The two opening cuts are psychedelic dazzlers. “Pajaros” ecstatically throbs as vocals soar in avian fashion, and “Andamios” is even better. The latter track’s hypnotic groove, buoyed by driving bass, gives way to an expansive, Middle Eastern–flavored bridge before returning to a beat you want to ride forever. “De Este Lado del Camino” is a slice of pop glory tinged with mellotron-like tones, while “Espuma” brings to mind both West African and pre-Columbian music. The energetic “Olita de Altamar” is also marked by indigenous influences, plus surf-rock stylings. One of 2012’s finest, El Objeto closes with “Volcan,” a relatively quiet piece that simmers with tension.

Customer Reviews

The Best.

Among the best Mexico has to offer right now! Cafeta albums never disappoint, this one is no exception. I love this band, they are on and have always been on another level. A significant group within the soundtrack of my life. I wait for their next albums like kids wait for Christmas, it's a gift!

El Objeto Antes Llamado Cafe Tacuba

La evolucion de Cafe Tacuba ha sido una devolucion y no una revolucion. La calidad de la musica ha sufrido muchisiom en los ultimos 2 o 3 albums, incluyendo este ultimo. Ruben es un cantante lleno de magnetismo, no se porque el grupo piensa que Emmanuel puede cantar cuando la realidad es que su rango vocal es bien limitado, lo que hace que muchas de las canciones de este album sean totalmente aburridas. Yo adoraba a Cafe Tacuba porque sus canciones siempre estaban llena de energia, vida y sorpresas. Ahora solo estan llenas de ritmos aburridos y letras terribles.

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...
