Product Description

Presente, the album by eight-piece Latin Grammy award-winning band Bajofondo is an epic, high-energy tour de force that blends tango, milonga, folklore, rock, hip-hop, electronica, jazz, classical and a world of sounds from the Rio de la Plata.

The album takes listeners on a brand new trip that melds the high-octane energy of Bajofondo's acclaimed live shows and their ingenious experimentation in the studio. At this point in Bajofondo's career, they have long transcended ‘electrotango’ to become one of the world's most eclectic acts on record and one of the most irresistible on the dance floor, all wrapped with the energy and attitude of rock 'n' roll.

This album seems to be an evolution of their earlier work, perhaps even a whole new direction for the genre, with less emphasis on the heavier electronic beats which will no doubt appear in a remix album. The music is a little less obviously tango derived, but the complex layering is there if you listen to it, the bandoneons, the strings and the piano and what I think they have achieved here has more mainstream appeal, but in a rather clever way, they've not left their fan base behind, they're taking us with them. Time will be the best judge of how successful this is. Favourite tracks are so subjective, what I like my tango buddies don't and vice-versa...Oigo Voces certainly polarises opinion...Nocturno so far seems the stand out track. On further listening the album seems to be a grower, which has to be a good thing.

I've edged around Bajofondo for a while, being more of a Gotan Project and Otros Aires man. However, I took the plunge and bought "Tango Club" a couple of months ago and, after three or four plays, finally fell in love with it.

Presente is very similar - I find that a first playing of any of Bajofondo's tracks is never enough to fully appreciate everything that's going on. In fact I don't think I really like any of them the first time around. There's so many layers and such a mix of sounds on each track, that you listen to it again and again and find something new each time.

Also, the variety is incredible. This isn't a one-trick neotango pony. There's everything from house-style to tango to acapella to full on power ballads, and some songs weave two styles into one song to great effect. Some tracks will have you dancing round the lounge, others will evoke haunting memories.

This is one of those albums you'll have on continuous loop on your iPod for days on end, it's that good.

If (like most people) you've ever wondered what the best alternative electrorock tango album is, then you're looking at it.

I bought their first album (Tango Club) several years ago. It was good, but too electronic and not tangoey enough for me. Then I saw them live and it was a totally different ball game; I realised what superb performers these guys (and one gal) are. 10 years and only two albums later, this album finally delivers the goods. It's far more acoustic than electric, yet superbly catchy and funky at the same time, with some epic beats.

It's also epically long, at 1 hour and 20 minutes. But incredibly there's not a moment of filler on there - there just isn't space! There's a startling variety of sounds, mostly instrumental, a few tracks sung, even acapella tango at one point, making the album is a real musical journey.

I've seen their web page and they're not coming to the UK any time soon, but this album will more than make do until then.

Alas, for me, this is the poorest Bajofondo album to date.
