la radiolina

April 6, 2008

Manu Chao‘s album from last year, ‘La Radiolina’, courtesy of the boys at pasar malam (RM10 for 3, buy 10 free 1) became the soundtrack for my trip home, especially when driving around the city. I was a little apprehensive as to how he would follow up on ‘Esperanza’, and had read a couple of less than enthousiastic revews.

Am happy to report that I found this album even better than the last, less ‘Bongo’, more varied, taking in cowboy guitars, some flamenco, some mariachi and lots of rock. The language remains uniquely his own, and more political than before. Love it!
