Product Description Product Description
Originally released in 2007. "Manu Chao makes music that cuts across cultural lines. As though singing in seven languages (French, Spanish, Galician, Arabic, English, Portuguese, and Wolof) wasn't enough, he brings aspects of music from across Western Europe, North Africa, and the Americas into his sound. You could say he was destined to live a life between cultures from the start. He was born in Paris to Spanish parents who had fled Franco's regime. His mother was from Bilbao, in Basque country, while his father was a journalist from Galicia, a region in far northwestern Spain that, like Basque country, has its own unique language... The most immediately noticeable thing about La Radiolina is how relatively rocked-up it is relative to its two predecessors. It's as though his old affiliation with the Latin Alternative movement and punk decided to reassert themselves. Mind you, it's not the kind of rock that's going to smack you around with its riffs and stomping drums -- this is more measured than that, and cut with so many global influences that it can't help sounding unique... Manu Chao is living proof that you don't have to be big in the U.S. to be one of the world's most important and influential musicians, and La Radiolina provides a healthy reminder it's a big world out there beyond our borders." --Pitchfork. Gatefold sleeve; comes with a CD copy of the album.

Manu Chao just keeps getting BETTER!!I first discovered Manu Chao on a visit to Europe in 2002 and have been a huge fan ever since. I've heard perhaps 2 songs on all of his albums that I didn't just love! - and none I haven't liked at least a little. One of the songs on this album - Me Llaman Calle - is the theme song for the movie Princesas set in Madrid. English is my primary language, then French and limited Spanish, so I can't tell you for sure, but I believe Manu Chao wrote the song specifically for the movie - and it adds the perfect balance to make a good movie great. In any language this music is groundbreaking! More of the English speaking world needs to discover this amazingly talented artist. Keep it coming!!!5Five StarsMy husband uses the music to help with his Spanish lessons5Manu Rocker , y qu ?It seems Manu has developed a formula for pop music and life on planet earth short stories in 3 min songs . This time with a lot of J.J.Cale influences ( he may not know who J.J. is ) and more rock than usual . A good twist for him , more comercial and available ... Good for Us ...Manu Chao Rocks a la J.J. Cale - Los Enanitos Verdes con singular alegria . Buenas y concisas canciones , comerciales y devertidas , a la tradici n de una latino america que necesita m s m sicos con coraz n y buenas intenciones , alegr a y esperanza , pensando en otra cosa que no sea la fama y el dinero y las chicas f ciles ... Viva Manu Rocker Chao ...4Watch out Al Gore!Politics and peacemaking aside this is a fun album. After listening to the fine production work he did on Amadou and Mariam's excellent "Dimanche A Bamako" a few years back (check it out if you're not familiar - it rocks!), I can here strains of that album here as well. "Politics is Violence" for example, is a reworking of a cut from that earlier album. While the Afro influences are much more subdued here, "Radiolina" is a sum of many World elements. Just wish some of the good cuts were a bit longer for extra enjoyment!4good stufffar warmer and more enjoyable, full of driving catchy Eurorock rhythms, funky edges, a crazy Spanish flavour, and vaguely political sensibilities5Excellent music, won't play on computer or mp3 playersAlthough not quite up to Manu's own standard, this is still a 4-star album. However, I can't for the life of me get to the music tracks on my Windows XP computer, even using the command prompt. They are well hidden within the too-fancy-for-his-own-good "enhanced CD" executable file. Since I'm rarely around my CD player anymore, this makes the music largely inaccessible to me.3A story in every song...Manu is full of character, and it's reflected in this album. Love his style, tone and inflection.4Vamos Manu!!!I LOVE Manu. He's definitely one of the most original artist around. I was real excited about this release but unfortunately, I think it was rushed. Most of the the tunes don't have the soul and flava of his previously released albums.3Manu rocks out!I'm a real Manu Chao fan and while I originally felt this album was a bit too repetitious, I've gotten to really enjoy this CD more and more since I've had it. It is very fast paced but I really enjoy a lot of the material on the CD. It's another good CD by Manu Chao.3Evolution of a Pan Latin GroovemasterWhen Manu Chao did a live set on KCRW a week before the release of "La Radiolina", Nic Harcourt observed that the new record has a more aggressive feel to it. Manu replied that in the six years since his last record, the world has changed a lot. The world too, has become more dangerous and aggressive.Radiolina does have several songs that are more electric guitar driven. Another new element (at least from my recollection) from the opening track, is an electric banjo that gives the music an almost hillbilly Appalachian feel not present on the previous albums.In addition to a fast paced guitar groove on several songs, Chao brings out his flamenco roots more overtly on "me llaman calle" and "La vida es una tombola/Si yo fuera Maradona".It may just be synchronicity, as I bought Cindy Sherman's new retrospective book with this CD, or it may be a direct influence, but the song "Bleeding clown" may have been influenced by one of Cindy Sherman's photographs.People complained about Manu's past records beginning to sound repetetive, even after just a few listens. Manu is fond of self cannibalization when writing songs. That technique worked quite well on his first two records, but it does get tiresome here. If there's a flaw to Radiolina, it's that he uses the same groove on nearly a half dozen songs. I remedied this by picking my favorite song in which he uses the same groove, and only transferring that song to my ipod. This is a different way of saying the album would have been just fine with 15 or 16 tracks instead of 21.Manu Chao is usually lumped in with "world music". I hereby invent the term "Pan Latin Groove", as Manu skillfully blends Spanish music with other Latino styles from all over the globe.While Radiolina does have a more aggressive feel to it on several songs, as with his past records, Manu infuses a heavy dose of angry politics. There's also a melancholia in his music (as there is in much of music in the vast Spanish/Portuguese diaspora). Ultimately, Manu also shares a message of hope in the song "Otro mundo" (other world), in which he sings he dreamed about a different and better world.Overall, a more polished, mature sound; a CD I'd strongly recommend in spite of the repetitive groove on several songs.4
