Product Description

Internationally renowned gypsy punk rock group Gogol Bordello return with their sixth full-length album Pura Vida Conspiracy via ATO Records. Produced by Andrew Scheps, the new album was recorded in El Paso, Texas at Sonic Ranch Studios and is a powerful collection of 12 surging new songs. The album’s title is derived from a Spanish slang phrase for “pure life,” which is a theme that resonates throughout the new material. The disc’s opener, “We Rise Again,” introduces the album’s limitless, all-embracing themes instantly, centered on a chorus of “Borders are scars on face of the planet.” The new songs are infused with ideas rooted in Eastern philosophy but also search for a means of joining fragmented parts and persons, and of creating a worldwide consciousness.

I have no idea what the previous reviewers have listened to!! Commercial?! Sold out?! I'd love them to cite an example of a comparable sound in the "Popular" charts.
I've seen GB live more than 10 times and have been a huge fan of their globe hopping fusion of punk, funk, latino, folk and general bass drenched party albums for many years. This album is no different; Pura Vida Conspiracy hops the globe from Latvian table-thumping, to beach melodies, to bass-drenched punk rock in its raucous circus led by Eugene's wonderfully passionate soul bearing.
Essentially, it's a all you can eat fusion plate of food that will leave you disgustingly full and yet still excited for dessert! So whilst there are some more tender, soul-searching melodies than previous albums, this feels like a natural evolution and blends the frantic with the poetic and it feels like a great party evening with a jug of red wine, chased by a tequila or ten and with a "chilled" long island ice tea thrown in for good measure ... ".....and you know that I'll pick up every time you call just to thank you one more time ...Alcohol ". Buy it and enjoy the contagious collection of songs.

I broadly agree with the earlier reviews. The raw energy of Gogol Bordello has, on earlier recorded work, translated well from the live performances, but this album sounds so over-thought and over-produced; it comes across to me that each band member has probably recorded their bits separately (as is the modern process these days) where previously you could believe they were all in a studio thrashing out their songs together. I wonder also if the changes in personnel have had an impact, now with a more full-on rock drummer (I like Oliver's playing but it lacks the subtlety of Eliot's) and this is the first recording since long-standing Israeli guitarist Oren Kaplan was replaced by American Michael Ward, which may also add to he overall more commercial sound. Eugene's voice still comes through, so it's still undoubtedly GB, and I reckon some of these songs, especially opening track We Rise Again, are strong enough to come over better played live - I'll find out when they hit the UK in December.

On the plus side, I ordered the vinyl version, knowing I'd get the MP3 download from Amazon thrown in (thus making vinyl viable again!), but was pleasantly surprised to find that it was white vinyl, came with a white vinyl 7" of two otherwise unreleased tracks, and the CD (albeit in a wallet rather than jewel case). Bonus!

best gogol bordello album yet. im a huge GB fan and own all their albums and this is by far the best overall album. other reviews are ignorant in there opinion this album lacks 'classics' when almost every song is without doubt not only a classic but a gogol classic. from opener we rise again to closer we shall sail im blown away. i sing along to every song especially dig deep enough, malindrino, lost innocent world, other side of rainbow and gypsy auto pilot! as for GB classics, malidrino and lost innocent world are exactly what classic gogol bordello songs should sound like. i cant wait to see them in london for my birthday this december and eagerly await to hear some of these songs as eagerly as i await to hear not a crime and wonderlust king. tune after tune! CLASSIC GB!

I like this album but i dont love it as much as some of their older stuff, it is more acoustic and traditional, definately still gypsy but not as much punk, still a good album.

Something very different to listen to. Seems to capture the excitement of his live shows. First track is the best for me.

Not their greatest album, but it's good. I'm not keen on the mastering though, it's a little bit too aggressive and bordring on the distorted for my liking

I've been a fan of Gogol Bordello since their first album and this is their strongest offering yet. The quality of the song writing is consistent from start to finish and if you're a fan of passionate, high energy music then you should definitely but this album!
