Aural Pleasure Review
Chico Ocaña: 'Canciones de mesa camilla'
Published: December 5, 2012
In his first solo album, the ferocious singer of the disbanded Mártires del Compás (the coolest, edgiest alternative flamenco band ever) continues what he did with his old band: create an offbeat, unpredictable mix of flamenco, reggae, and pop, all done with a rock attitude — minus Mártires' tango touches. The album was originally released in 2010 and he's due for a new one, but this music doesn't age: get this one now and don't forget the lesson he offers in "Alegrías sin sal": "Drugs kill, but having a misstep with that mulato girl kills even more."
★★★ ½ (out of 5 stars)
