This is a 1990 release on ZYX label (Germany) bringing together 12 of the tracks from this four-some 1980's synth-pop phenomenon from Germany. If you like Depeche Mode, then you will like Cetu Javu (they have a lot of songs with Spanish lyrics by the way). Given that unfortunately almost all of Cetu Javu's releases are out of print and very hard to come by, this album is a unique opportunity for new-comers and other synth-pop fans to have access to these interesting tracks. I just wish that the sound quality was better, in fact I wish they would digitally remaster this album and include some of the extended versions and remixes as bonus tracks; this CD is only 51:20 in length and could have very well gone up to 74 minutes.... Anyways, in my opinion, the best cuts are ''Southern Lands'', ''Situations'', and ''Adonde'', which is the melodic and upbeat B-side to the very good 1989 release ''So Strange'' (perhaps their last release, as far as I know).Was this review helpful?
