With magnetic rhythms, cool grooves, and catchy hooks, the Mexican rock band Maná have conquered fans on both sides of the border. From the wickedly cool opener "Hechicera" to the pulsating "Un Lobo por Tu Amor," the tunes are easy to get into, regardless of whether you know Spanish or not. There's plenty of fun, too, on the rollicking "Tu Tienes Lo Que Quiero" and the zany "Clavado en un Bar," which became the tour anthem during the band's 1998 tour. Also bewitching are the romantic "En el Muelle de San Blas" and the achy love ode "Como Dueles en los Labios." The band is also daring, remembering political prisoners around the world on "Me Voy a Convertir en un Ave." --Ramiro Burr

"Clavado en Un Bar" is guitar heavy and addictive, and "Muelle de San Blas" is spectacular (more upbeat than the later, Unplugged version). "Como dueles en los labios" is probably my third favorite of the tracks, but most are good.
Though the lyrics are often somewhat depressing and speak of hopelessness and loss, the music itself is quite upbeat and very fun. If you understand the lyrics, this paradox makes the music all the more chilling and fascinating (in particular Clavado en un Bar, in my opinion). If not, just enjoy the tunes!
The first track 'Hechicera' begins in a very surreal and psychedelic fashion. When the song gets going, it has a jazzy/reggae feel to it, then in come this lovely Spanish guitar riff to break up the verses. The song is somewhat haunting, but is a very good opener. In fact you'll probably find it hard to resist pressing the repeat button a few times.
The second track (Un lobo por tú amor), starts quite dancey, and has quite a Spanish Vs Counting Crows feel to it. The sound has quite an astonishing similarity to "The Police" and I suppose the lead singer does have quite a similar voice to Sting, but only better.
"Chamán" is definitely one to remember on this album, so exquisite, again haunting, but a great listen. This is a song which grew on me immediately, and the chorus is one that will surely have you singing along! (The CD has the lyrics entailed on the sleeve, so you'll have no problem being a non-Spanish speaker!)
The best song of all, on the album has to be 'Clavado en un bar', (Wrecked in a bar) words cannot describe how cool this track is! I think it's a song which, puts all the sounds of Maná together, summoning them up in 5 minutes! It's a great rock song, and would have your head banging straight away, especially when the van halen solo kicks in.
Maná was introduced to me from talking to a Mexican girl, who explained to me that Maná was the best Latin Rock band, she wasn't wrong.
Maybe this album will encourage you to take up a second language, if not, it will surely inspire you in some other way.
I fell in love with Mana through this CD, "Suenos Liquidos"-- and with one particular song, "La Sirena." Meaning "Mermaid" in English, it's wistfully beautiful, poignant in its lyrical gentleness... Could be symbolical, but I'm slow to catch on to symbolism in another language-- only when I dissect the sentences (haven't even seen the lyrics), and slower, especially, when it's near midnight (as it is, right now). Perhaps that's a point in Mana's favor, as music-- good music-- is suppose to transcend verbal expression, and talking of Suenos Liquidos as a whole, I feel that it does. I don't know what the situation of Mana is on the Spanish charts, but I won't be surprised if they are #1.
Mana's greatest asset as far as i can tell is singer and principal lyricist/composer Fher, who has a mesmerizing voice reminiscent of Sting. But contrary to what a track like "Clavado en un bar" may deceptively suggest, they are far from just a heavier, Spanish language carbon copy of The Police. Their compelling sound incorporates a variety of influences, both modern and traditional, forging them together into a novel, trademark style with universal appeal. Co-composer Alex Gonzalez performs excellently on percussion as well as keyboards. (I wonder how he's gonna pull this off on stage.)
Opening on an oriental note, "Hechicera" quickly turns into a groovy rock song with a bewitching reggaelike rhythm on a layer of subtle keys. "Un lobo por tu amor" (nice harmonica intro) would not have been out of place on a Peter Gabriel album (apart from the Spanish lyrics of course). The slightly repetitive "Como dueles en los labios" is a slower, acoustical track with a deft keyboard passage toward the end. Reigning supreme on this album is "Chaman", an atmospheric song that gets under my skin like no other. Its guitar theme is too beautiful for words (as are Fher's lead vocals) and contrasts wonderfully with the hard rocking refrain.Read more ›
