Product Description

Product Description

La Radiolina is the hotly anticipated album new album from legendary French-Spanish performer and songwriter Manu Chao. His first new studio album in six years, it is the follow-up to Chao's three million-selling `Próxima Estación: Esperanza' in 2001 and his break through debut solo album `Clandestino' on 1998. Cited by the late Joe Strummer as one of his favourite artists, Manu Chao recorded La Radiolina in Barcelona. The new album was written and produced by Chao with the help of mixers Mario Caldato Jr. (Beastie Boys and Jack Johnson) and Andrew Scheps (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Mars Volta). La Radiolina has already been called "a kaleidoscope of brilliant ideas and global musics, full of passionate conviction, nostalgia and celebration, and as such is a more than worthy successor to `Clandestino" and it has already received a rave 5/5 star review in UNCUT Magazine.

Having also followed Manu Chao since the release of clandestino, his first solo outing, and then back tracked through the Mano Negra days, his previous outings with his brother. I was as you can imagine very keen to hear the new album - Radiolina. Having read a rather dissapointing review in the Times last weekend i was even more concerned that this would not live up to the other albums, in paticular Esperanza.
However I am happy to report that this is not the case, on a typically dull and grey Summers day i popped the CD in the player and listened to the whole 22 tracks.

Radiolina is a slight departure from the more mellow and sample infused Clandestino and Esperanza, However it is replaced by a much more upbeat and heavy sound reminiscant of the early days of Manu Negra. Still chock full of Political commentry, The stand out tracks for me include the highly infectious Politik, and Raining in Paradise, although it is hard to single out specifics as the whole album is a gem.
Despite the uneducated and down right crooked views of the Times reviewer, This album is a must buy for the Manu Chao fan. People who do not know Manu Chao give it a go you will be hooked.

Manu Chao up until this point has enjoyed a somewhat cult following in the UK, Our cousins in Europe and South America have embraced him as his talent deserves, Joe Strummer of the Clash rated him and I think you will be hearing a lot more from this Manu - Look out for his UK tour !

By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 11 Sept. 2007
Format: Audio CD
Manu Chao is a not what you think of "world music" as being. For many people, that equals weird, inaccessable music played on instruments you can't identify.

In the case of Manu Chao, it means something far warmer and more enjoyable, full of driving catchy Eurorock rhythms, funky edges, a crazy Spanish flavour, and vaguely political sensibilities. It's been six years since his last internationally-released album, but "La Radiolina" (translation: the little radio) was an event worth waiting for.

It kicks off with the "13 D¡as," a racing blur of folky-rocky-guitar and lots of mumbling. But that's only the warm-up into the melodious, brass-band-edged rocker "Tristeza Maleza," which sounds like Spoon got invaded by Andalusian musicians, and the hypnotic guitar-rap of "Politik Kills ("Politik needs your mind/politik needs human beings/politik needs lies...")

And with the driving, blurring, siren-laden "Rainin In Paradize," the album really blossoms into all it can be -- colourful bouncy folkpop, sensual ballads, meditative little tunes, driving little rockers flavoured with odd sounds and fiery tight guitars, and a long stretch of swirling Spanish-inspired music.

It finishes up with a wicked trio of songs -- a kinetic, high-speed electrorocker with a sly smile woven into all the buzzing, a meditative little instrumental on acoustic guitar, and finally the driving "Y Ahora Qu_" with its blazing bass and ringing riffs.

It's a suitably energetic finale to an album that is uptempo and intense, but without being oppressive about it. Instead, Mano Chao gives his music a relaxed feel -- it's like being at a colourful nighttime party with plenty of food, drink and dancing, but in a city full of turmoil during the day.

I've hear Manu's songs before, but never really knew it was him. It changed after I visited a Spanish restaurant and heard "Me gusta" and decided to look it up on internet. I found "Me gusta" and many other really great tunes. I bought "La Radiolina" mainly because "Me llaman calle" which was a bit of risk, but whole CD is at least good and some tunes are simply great.
One thing about Manu that I like is that he manages to keep relatively good quality of music on all his albums (I now own all of them ;) ) which is a nice surprise: I listen to all of them with pleasure.
Certainly recommended for those who lie this kind of music..... (not sure what it really is..... ;) but I laways know it when I hear it lol )

I have been following Manu chao's musical development for years. It was clear that from the early punky-reggae songs with la Mano Negra he had a talent for writing and performing songs that made you happy. Manu started his solo career quite late but with all his experience with La mano Negra (which toured the world and especially south america) Manu has influences from all over the world, therefore his music is global: he is the 21st century Bob Marley. He doesn't enjoy notoriety and relishes his travels. In this new album, Manu retains the same patchwork style (bits of music and words) that he used and re-used in his 3 previous solo albums only this time there is a country/bluegrassy feel to it that makes the new songs sound more punchy. Raining in Paradise is the first single, it has catchy lyrics and as usual with Manu it just makes you smile. If you have the chance to see him live don't miss him. If you liked the previous 3 albums you will in no doubt love this one.

I think that the best thing I can say about this record and Manu Chao in general is that my friends have hard time believing me when I tell them I am a big fan of Manu Chao. This is because normally I listen to progressive and hard rock.

Clandestino has been in my top ten records of all time since its release and "La radiolina" even is not as brilliant it is very good, actually I think is the best and more coherent record I have bought this year far above the average music you can get in the shelves nowadays.

If you do not speak Spanish I strongly recommend to copy the lyrics into a translator and get the meaning of them. Good stuff.
