More Recent Praise For Café Tacvba’s“El Objeto Antes Llamado Disco”

“Cafe Tacvba hits new mark with ‘El Objeto’: Cafe Tacvba may be one of the most important rock bands alive…The new album from Mexico’s fantastic quartet is ambitious, groundbreaking and quite simply, superb. The album has the depth, breadth and exploration of the later works of The Beatles, with touches of progressive rock and the band’s own unique recipe of electronica combined with Mexican folkloric sounds and pre-Colombian rhythms. …the best moment to discover one of the most remarkable artistic collectives of our time.”

Associated Press

“★★★★ – Café Tacuba celebrates the art of creative meandering… Café Tacuba doesn’t chase fads…But the band displays its mastery of 21st century electronic intertextuality  …”Objeto” [is] an object of obscure desire, filled with tantalizing possibilities about where rock may be headed, and how, and why.”  – Los Angeles Times

“It’s good to have [Café Tacva] back. Rubén Albarrán, an astonishing singer, brings his full game …But what really seems new on “El Objeto” is its degree of introspection. Also, while its lyrics can be as fractured and imagistic as ever, emotionally it’s the warmest album Café Tacvba has made.”- New York Times

“★★★★ ½ – Mexico’s favorite indie rock heroes Café Tacuba reinvent their own crazy wheel with El Objeto Antes Llamado Disco. Since the band has always recorded infrequently, each recording is an event. … at the very threshold of 21st century indie pop – these ten songs prove that they are, quite literally, one of the finest and most adventurous rock bands in the world.” – ALL MUSIC

“★★★★ – Mexico’s Café Tacuba [is] back with a vengeance …the Tacubos deliver one of their strongest albums ever. …great melodies, tasteful arrangements, and lyrics that simultaneously live in sublime and mundane worlds. It is a personal, ambitious album that experiments without ever losing its pop sensibility and accessibility. It grooves it rocks, and it makes you want to go back to it over and over again.”

– San Antonio Current

“This is their 7th studio album in their 20 years of making groundbreaking music that seamlessly fuses sounds and genres, and without fail, this is another masterpiece …Their vast repertoire only seems to get better with every new album they release. El Objeto Antes Llamado Disco is a manifestation of Café Tacvba’s evolution and maturation that excites the listener with each track — they remain fresh and energetic which is impressive considering their longstanding career as pioneers of Mexican rock. If this is what aging gracefully sounds like then it makes me look forward to the future.” – Remezcla Music

“★★★★★- /Five solid stars! – one of the most anticipated Latin music albums of the year.  The Bottom Line: Cafe Tacvba’s new album is remarkable. …If you are looking for something ‘outside of the box,’ Cafe Tacvba’s new album is your best shot right now.”- About.com:“Latin Music”
