Overview

Los Extraterrestres: Otra Dimension [2CD/1DVD]

By the time Wisin & Yandel released Los Extraterrestres, the veteran reggaeton duo was a well-oiled hitmaking machine. It had taken them a half-decade to break into the mainstream with Pa'l Mundo (2005), a chart-topping album that spawned a long string of singles, including the number one hit "Llame Pa' Verte." In the wake of Pa'l Mundo, Wisin & Yandel began leveraging their newfound mass appeal: they established their own boutique label (WY Records), formed their own supporting group (Los Vaqueros), and begun flooding the marketplace with product, including a deluxe edition of Pa'l Mundo (featuring the number one hit "Pam Pam"), a group album (Los Vaqueros), a remix album (Los Vaqueros: Wild Wild Mixes), a live CD/DVD (Tomando Control), and a collection of repackaged archival material (2010 Lost Edition). Plus, they were featured on a Top 20 hit by Don Omar ("No Se de Ella 'My Space'") that was as much their song as his, and for good measure, they struck a deal with Microsoft to market the Zune MP3 player. Given the machine-like productivity of Wisin & Yandel throughout 2006 and 2007, it's no surprise that Los Extraterrestres is workmanlike and well-executed, serving up everything fans will expect, beginning with a sure-fire lead single, "Sexy Movimiento" -- everything except surprises, that is. At a point in time when fellow reggaeton figureheads such as Daddy Yankee, Tego Calderón, and Calle 13 were pushing the boundaries of the style in their own respective ways, Wisin & Yandel chose to return with a safe album that should do nothing to alienate their fan base. This is good news for those who enjoy state-of-the-art reggaeton without any experimentation, for even the two songs that feature English-language rap artists ("Control," featuring Eve; "Jangueo," Fat Joe) are stylistically straightforward. Moreover, the employment of first-rate producers Nesty, Tainy, El Nasi, and Monserrate and DJ Urba in the place of Wisin & Yandel's former beatmakers-in-chief, Luny Tunes, ensures the quality of the music. Couple this with the veteran approach of Wisin & Yandel, who bring their A-game here, and the result is a new-yet-familiar album sure to please the duo's fan base, and likely grow it as well as the hits mount. [Machete Music's 2008 edition included bonus tracks and a DVD.]

This CD is hot...I listen to it in the car all of the time. These two guys are the best reggaton artist out. If you don't really care for or have never listened to reggaton, give this cd a try.
