Todos Tus Muertos
Greatest Hits
Nacional

By Ernest Barteldes

Published June 13, 2008

We can only wonder where today’s Latin pop scene would be without the ’90s Rock En Español explosion that brought bands like Aterciopelados, Cafe Tacvba, Los Fabulosos Cadillacs, and Todos Tus Muertos to prominence, but one thing is certain: it would be a much poorer place. Hailing from Argentina, TTM mix roots reggae, punk and even mangue beat into this memorable hits package. “Rasta Vive” combines Indian tablas and other sonic elements for something both new and familiar, while the band reveals a sense of humor with the medley “Sé Que No/Requebra,” which begins with a rock vibe that quickly devolves into a playful cover of a song by Brazil’s Ara Ketu. The most powerful rocker on the disc is “Lehenbiziko Bala,” but “Guantanamera/Hijo Nuestro”—a rousing tribute to Nicaraguan revolutionary Augusto Sandino—also hits a nerve with its pure and inspiring power. Even without liner notes, this collection presents a clear picture of the band’s musical tendencies for longtime fans and newbies alike.
