It has at least 6 tracks that are not wasted, pop rock that crossed borders from Spain to Latin America in the eighties and that persists to this day transgenerationally. With a bit of punk, pop, rock and ballad influences, Hombres G gave us a small album but one of the most solid and memorable among his discography.

Spanish jangle pop. I'll take it. Sounds a little ahead it's time actually. Indie before indie.

Smooth and shiny rock album with an easy listening voice. I would probably give this a 3 as it didn't completely blow me away, but gets a boost from me because: A) I always appreciate music from countries/cultures not well-represented on the list B) I literally just got off a plane from Spain today so this feels like serendipity.

The significance of Burt Lancaster and/or that cover is totally lost. On the other hand, just the sound - pop-rock, slightly beachy, with just-incongruous vocals - works well. The Hombres don't demand much space; There can always be room for light punned tunes.

Fine, but didn't particularly grab me. Not getting much out of the lyrics with my very rusty high school/college Spanish. Otherwise the music seemed like pretty straightforward pop, and I wasn't a big fan of the lead singer's vocal stylem

I like the more upbeat tracks here, they really stand out for me. The Downtempo stuff is fine, but maybe a little tired.

Not bad, but not super interesting either. 3 stars.

It was all in Spanish, so I did not understand a word of it. It was alright. I wouldn't revisit it, but I would listen to it again.

Fun 80s light rock. Raspy singing brings to mind French band Telephone.

Those vocals sounded like they were recorded at a bachelor party that ended up in a Karaoke bar. And for that matter, so did the music.

I don't get the Burt Lancaster reference; he's too old for me (I'm 40!) and I don't speak Spanish. But I'm guessing that's a great gag. Or is it? Music is alright. Ska-ish? A bit monotonous, every song sounded the same. Probably one of those things that no one outside Spain (maybe also South America?) knows about. Like Cold Chisel, but nowhere near as good. 2/5.

Failed to make an outstanding impression on me – most songs feel quite similar, and the vocals are cloying and flat. The Spanish songs that came on rotation after the album ended felt much more vibrant than anything displayed in the 35 minute runtime on this LP.

It has been a while that I stopped listening after 30 seconds. The first thing I thought was: is this some kind of bad cover band from South America. In any case, enough for me to come to this quick conclusion.
