The second disc is a live album which is also incredibly good. Some of the tracks included on that one are Black Heart, The News About William, Inspiracion, Two Silver Trees, Quattro & Crystal Frontier.
Personal favourites from this album include the moody and emotive "Para", the melodic and jolly title track "Algiers" which evokes feelings of a distant land, and the smooth and emotive closing track "The Vanishing Mind", which is truly like someone playing on heartstrings.
This album has proved a fantastic purchase and I wish Calexico all the very best, and hope they continue to grow and thrive in the years to come. Fantastic artists with an extremely impressive range of tracks. Absolutely love them!
Maybe it was my inflated expectations, but I must admit that on first hearing I was a little disappointed with 'Algiers'. If you experience something similar my advice is 'stick with it'! After playing it two three times I can't wait to hear it again. For me the album gets stronger and stronger the more I hear it. It's right up there with Calexico's best work. No doubt the song 'Fortune Teller' will be mentioned by many - and rightfully so, it's a song of spine tingling beauty that is worthy of Dylan at his absolute peak. But the other songs come creeping up behind it gaining strength the more they are heard. Joey Burns appears to be gaining in confidence. His vocal performance on the album is stunning.
Just one addition. In my haste to hear the album I almost downloaded the MP3. I'm glad I didn't because the Cd version contains a bonus CD 'Spiritoso'. All Calexico fans must have this! It is a live performance with the band augmented by what sounds like a huge orchestra and brass section. The string arrangements are exquisite and the performances are inspired. Again, Joey Burn's vocal performance in front of such a massive band is powerful and mesmerising. Incredible.
For the bands die hard fans, it's considered to be up there with their best work to date.
Whilst recording the album, they stayed in a suburb of New Orleans called Algiers, from which it was given it's title. Immersing themselves in it's vibrant atmosphere, they gained valuable inspiration that lent itself to this excellent recording.
As a result, the record is a meld of styles ranging from soft blues to gentle rock. A coherent and harmonious set of songs throughout.
