This review is from: Presente (Audio CD)
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.
