Acustico [CD/DVD]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jason Birchmeier
The success of Flores de Alquiler 2004 was a little slow to build for la Quinta Estación, but the success certainly came, particularly with the release of the album's second and third singles, "Daría" and "Algo Más," and it carried over well into 2005. So the rock en español trio regrouped that year for a stopgap release that would tide over their growing fan base while they continued to ride out the steadily continuing success of Flores de Alquiler. The CD/DVD Acustico is that stopgap release. Essentially, it's an "unplugged" performance of Flores de Alquiler, reprising most of the album, including all of the hits. There is enough of a difference between this ...

The success of Flores de Alquiler 2004 was a little slow to build for la Quinta Estación, but the success certainly came, particularly with the release of the album's second and third singles, "Daría" and "Algo Más," and it carried over well into 2005. So the rock en español trio regrouped that year for a stopgap release that would tide over their growing fan base while they continued to ride out the steadily continuing success of Flores de Alquiler. The CD/DVD Acustico is that stopgap release. Essentially, it's an "unplugged" performance of Flores de Alquiler, reprising most of the album, including all of the hits. There is enough of a difference between this understated acoustic performance and the radio-ready slickness of Flores de Alquiler that fans will want both. In particular, frontwoman Natalia Jiménez shines here. Without question, she's the focal point of the band, and her voice absolutely steals the show on Acustico. Discounting a two-song plugged-in encore, "Algo Más" is saved for last, and it's just plain striking. What a beautiful song, no matter the version. "Niña" also shines within this context, as it's also a showcase for the vocal strength of Jiménez. As pleasing as this performance is, however, there's no denying that it's slight relative to its primary source, Flores de Alquiler. Jiménez may indeed shine here, but a lot of the studio-crafted vibrancy that made Flores de Alquiler such an exceptional album is missing in the sparseness of this setting. Moreover, Acustico is slight because of its limited contents: just ten songs total, eight of them from Flores de Alquiler and the other two from the band's largely unknown debut, Primera Toma 2002. Then again, the video component does add a certain additional value, but overall, Acustico is the province of devoted fans. Anyone less than wholeheartedly devoted to la Quinta Estación will be perfectly content with Flores de Alquiler and the band's other studio efforts.
