I first heard this album at uni in about 1999 - i was chilling out in my mates room when i heard the intro to 'Super Bowl Sundae' start playing. I was listening to this and just relaxing and then, BANG, the track transforms into the jazziest, funkiest slab of hip-hop you'll ever hear. I instantly fell in love with that song and, after a further 20 minutes, pretty much the entire album!
This truly is an incredible collection of tracks - there's not a bad song on there and, if you haven't got this album, you need it. If you have got it, buy it again - it's THAT good!

My first experience of Ozomatli was when a friend of mine played me a track from a compilation he made. I never looked back!
Luckily, they were playing near me not long after i'd heard them, and their live shows, as i'm sure anyone who's seen them will testify, is an absolutely awesome experience!
The blend of styles they fuse is incredible, latin, funk, jazz, hip-hop, dance...its truly wonderful and so refreshing.
They genuinely love what they do and that comes across.
It helps that they're all absolutely awesome musicians too!

In tradition of LA bands WAR and Fishbone and Cyprus Hill, Latino funk plus hip hop and a bit of Afro-pop and flamenco and ska and reggae but somehow managing to make it all seamless. Ozomatli are famed for live shows but the CD is a must-have for anyone searching for forward-looking funky sounds. This CD is guaranteed not to sound like anything else in your collection. Check out the beautiful vocal melodies in Eva and the grooves everywhere else. DJ on all tracks, Spanish salsa grooves and vocals on others. No shtick, just move-your-ass cool music for hipsters. Apparently the band have a cult following in San Francisco for their live shows.
