This popular group from Spain has been with em for more than 10 years. I was introduced to them by an exchange student from Spain studying at my college in Norway. He brought this CD with him, and we played it continously at the school bar on Friday nights.
The music is very melodious, it has a good beat, and it leaves me in a good party mood. It has a raw edge, but at the same time it keeps up a good beat, and it never gets too noisy.
If you want a good album with Spanish rock, this should be one of your picks.

Having inherited this book, I picked it out of the bookshelf for a fast and easy read. I was pleasently surpised to discover that this was en excellent crimenovel. Sid, an ex-jockey, has been sitting around the office of a investigative firm for 2 years with nothing to do. Unaware of his father-in-law's plot, he is dragged in to a crime involving a reacecourse, valuable property and a villain with obscure pleasures. Sid's job is in short to save the racecourse from the hostile takeover.
I found myself dragged into the story, and towards the end, it was impossible to put the book down.
I highly recommend this, and am heading for another Frances novel.

5.0 out of 5 stars A masterpiece, 1 Aug 2001
I first saw this move back in the '80s at a movietheatre in Oslo - and I was immideately swept away. What a wonderful movie. Though it took me some time to se the genius of the first part, I bought it on VHS as soon as I got hold of it, and am now in the process of buying the DVD. This is a wonderful movie, and a great opportunity to introduce children to the wonderful world of classical music.
