Comment: this set of 10 compositions may seem quite similar to something or one can feel he/she has heard it before sometime. It might he/she has listened to such project as Juanitos which is headed by the Frenchman Juan Naveira. It is not coincidence at all – Limbo Deluxe is also one of his projects. Similarly to Juanitos Limbo Deluxe's music is a bold carnival of thousands of sounds. OK, I exaggerated a little bit but it involves such elements as rockabilly, surf, indie, boogie, world music, brass pop, psychedelic and acid pop. Certainly I forgot something to add. Guitars, vocals, drums and dusty organs are set up to introduce a groovy party. Especially those rolling acidic organ cascades placed side by side to sonic threads of the other instruments are truly catchy and enchanting reminding me of such baggy juggernauts as The Charlatans, The Wordsmiths, The Mock Turtles, and Inspiral Carpets. All is fairly coherent, all is consistent, all is very convincing. The lyrics are in English and in Spanish. Business as usual by him. One should abandon antidepressants to replace them with the downright optimistic, serotonin-supplying one. It is not funny, it makes up much more fun.
