Mecano was always a group I had heard coming from my parents, but I never took them that serious, considering I mainly listened to hiphop. On 1st listen, the melodies sounded very corny and ridiculous to me, but that changed in time.More than anything, the voice of vocalist Ana Torroja intrigued/soothed your mind to a point of great mystery. There was something about this album that just captivated you the more you listened to it. And though MECANO has broken up for several years now, and have put out many solid and great cds, this by far, is their best one. By the way, this is not the real album, since it lacks songs "Las Cosas Pares" and "Te Busque." Nevertheless, the album is a balanced depth that doesn't bore you with intended complexity. With each listen, the lyrics grow into relation into personal experiences.
1-ay que pesado-the hook is very catchy and the melody is very simple, which only enhances Ana's voice.The lyrics are incredible!
2-angel-the song sounds 2 mysterious at 1st listen, but the haunting vocals win u over, esp.

Mecano Defined An Era Jan. 29 2006
By James Fisher - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Mecano was a Spanish group that set a trend for Latin pop. It likened its sensibilities to the kind of rock/pop that was most famous in the United States and in Britain. Not quite New Wave, it was a synth heavy, intricately weaved song structure and featuring a quintissential girl lead singer, which at around 1982 when their first album came out was a main cup of tea.

Entre El Cielo Y El Suelo (In Between Heaven And The Floor) is the group's fourth and finest studio record. Released in 1986, it perfects all the aspects that made Mecano great in the first place and pushed the envelope in terms of songwriting, aesthetics, and harmonics. Their first CD was a fresh sounding concoction, featuring the band's signature songs, amid other more uneven songs whose fault was more of a lyrical immaturity than anything else. The next couple of Mecano records delved into this immaturity. They wanted to experiment within the boundaries of commercial pop and did so but in a very flawed matter.

There was an enormous transition between their third CD Ya Viene El Sol in 1984 and this classic that is unexplained for. Perhaps the reason for this was because one of the Cano brothers (Jose Maria) started contributing regular compositions and he proved to be unequivocally the better songwriter of the two brothers. Also the production is more assured and this record boasts a new batch of Mecano classics, such as Hijo De La Luna, perhaps the finest song in the group's catalog. There is not a single weak track in the record. It's a mesmerizing case of pitch perfect inspiration that elevated the status of a group that was starting to remain purely a cult hit. Entre El Suelo Y El Cielo amplifies them as the finest Latin pop group of the 1980s. The spectrum was theirs and theirs alone.

Unfortunately, this edition of this record omits two songs from the original track listing, which is composed of twelve songs, not ten. If you can get a hold of the complete record, you get "Las Cosas Pares" and "Te Busque."

Classic tracks: Ay Que Pesado, Hijo De La Luna, Me Cuesta Tanto Olvidarte, No Es Serio Este Cementerio and Cruz De Navajas

This CD is QUALITY POP July 13 2001
By nyasb - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I don't speak Spanish. The only reason I ever heard this CD, or know the gist of some of the songs is because of my Mexican girlfriend. Although at first I thought some songs were a bit cheesy sounding (I had only the music to go on), the tunes grew on me FAST and I realized (after getting clued in to some of the lyrics) that what I perceived as cheese was inventiveness, confidence, and attitude. Though I still can't understand the words, in my opinion this album stands up with ANY pop album of the mid-late 80's/early 90's no question. Any true fan of pop is doing themselves a disservice to overlook this album.

Vocal and Melodic Excellence Dec 16 2002
By Alfred A B Lopez, O.P. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The local Spanish radio statin played Mecano's "Cruz de Navaja," a song that showcased the vocalist's pristine voice and the band's versitle musical ability. The lyrics of all Mecano's songs are truly poetic and capture with great precision sundry emotions of life's experiences. The audio quality of the vinyl album was disappointing; however, the cd mfg. in Spain by Ariola proved to be a far supperior listening experience. This album peaked my interest in the group, so-mcuh-so, that I have purchased other Mecano albums. They too have been quite impressive. Currently, I appreciate various albums that Ana Torroja has recorded as a soloist. Her songs, lyrics and vocals are no less beautiful or refreshing than her preformances with Mecano. "Entre El Cielo Y El Suelo" provides great listening pleasure and thought provoking lyrics that awakens an energized curiosity in the listener each time songs or the entire album is played

The album that changed music in Spanish forever Jan. 1 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
MECANO is simply the greatest spanish pop band ever. Unfortunately, many people around the world will miss this great music because of the language. But everyone should listen, at least once, to this album. "Entre el cielo y el suelo" is the album that proved Mecano's evolution. It's the album that opened the doors for Latin America. It's also the album that released more than 7 #1's. 12 masterpieces, with highlights as "Hijo de la luna", "Cruz de navajas", 12 stories that changed my life forever... This is a powerful album, that captured the sound of the spanish 80's pop.

One of the greatest song ever made (hijo de la luna) is here Feb. 13 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you have listened Mecano music this is a CD that you must have. Only with Hijo de la Luna and cruz de Navajas this is a worth CD. Hijo de la Luna,(moon's son) a beatiful song about a legend of the moon, one of the greatest songs in Spanish ever made, Cruz de Navajas, a pretty song about an ordinary life in Spain, Me Cuesta tanto Olvidarte (It's so difficult to forget you), the summit of love. A great CD.
