Siempre Es Hoy was recorded while Gustavo Cerati was going through some personal changes: divorcing his wife and then falling in love again (this time with the former girlfriend of his Soda Stereo colleague Charly Alberti). This is indeed a breakup album, but also of renaissance. Sometimes bitter ("No Te Creo" and "Karaoke") and sometimes very sweet ("Amo Dejarte Así," "Señales Luminosas," and "Cosas Imposibles"), on the surface Siempre Es Hoy sounds happier than Bocanada and, in fact, it is, and then some: it is Cerati trying hard to leave behind his self-imposed cool and distant look at reality. On "En Vivo," he sings "I'm gonna wear my human skin costume." Although it may sound quite monotone and long at first listen (maybe due to the mid-tempo mood that rules the record), the album as a whole reveals different angles upon each play. "Sulky" is one of the most interesting songs on the album. It features Domingo Cura, a folkloric Argentine musician. "Tu Cicatriz en Mí" is a reworked version of "Es Sólo una Ilusión" originally included in the soundtrack + Bien. Less experimental and electronic than his previous albums, you can hear again his fine and intense work as a guitarist. If Bocanada was too somber and serious, this album is a positively lighthearted step forward in the recovery of some intensity.

Listening to this album has been such a great experience. I have been following Cerati ever since he started playing with Soda Stereo, and believe me, this work has been one of his finest. The lyrics of his songs, the musical arrangements, and most of all the magestic work Cerati performs, gives the album a high rate!!!
