Libertinaje [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Abraham Velez
As stylistically virtuosic as the Fabulosos Cadillacs, fierce as Molotov, and possibly zanier than even Café Tacuba, Bersuit dropped one of the most brilliant -- and underrated -- alt-Latin records of the '90s with Libertinaje. Fellow Argentine Gustavo Santaolalla supplies his production savoir-faire on this freaky tour-de-force of South American fusion. Indeed, Bersuit's raucous, hard-rocking take on Colombian and Mexican roots music is at once thrilling and bizarre. The wry fatalism of "Yo Tomo" posits the existential quandary, "I drink so I won't fall in love/I fall in love so I won't drink" over a dizzy swirl of hip-grinding cumbia, kitschy organ, and punk guitar ...

Barnes & Noble - Abraham Velez
As stylistically virtuosic as the Fabulosos Cadillacs, fierce as Molotov, and possibly zanier than even Café Tacuba, Bersuit dropped one of the most brilliant -- and underrated -- alt-Latin records of the '90s with Libertinaje. Fellow Argentine Gustavo Santaolalla supplies his production savoir-faire on this freaky tour-de-force of South American fusion. Indeed, Bersuit's raucous, hard-rocking take on Colombian and Mexican roots music is at once thrilling and bizarre. The wry fatalism of "Yo Tomo" posits the existential quandary, "I drink so I won't fall in love/I fall in love so I won't drink" over a dizzy swirl of hip-grinding cumbia, kitschy organ, and punk guitar antics. "A Los Tambores" charges along like a stampede of acid-crazed buffalo, with manic group vocals, heroic guitar á la Brian May, and thunderous drumming -- do you hope or fear that they're coming to a town near you? The fracas continues with the monstrous, operatic klezmer of "De Onda," while "Se Viene" settles into straight-up spy-film ska. The acme of the whole mess is "Sr. Cobranza," a ferocious indictment of Argentine president Carlos Menem for supposed narco-money laundering. Vocalist Gustavo Cordera's rant gradually mushrooms from a quietly sardonic funk-rap into a wonderfully hellish, full-on thrash guitar assault. The lilting "Vuelos" and brief, madcap cumbia of "C.S.M." take us back to earth. How far can cross-pollination go? Libertinaje is vital listening for anyone curious to find out.
