When I was making my list of the 10 best Mexican albums of 2018, it was clear that one of them had to be La Barranca’s “Lo eterno”. With more than two decades of recognition and trajectory, La Barranca is one of the most important active bands in my country. The first album they recorded was “El fuego de la noche” (1996), an album that presented all the elements that we would love of La Barranca as the time passed. Music and lyrics combine perfectly, but perhaps one of my favourite elements is the voice of the singer José Manuel Aguilera.
Combining nostalgia and sadness with energy and magnificency, their most recent album “Lo eterno” gives us a magnificent collection of songs that deserve every second of our attention. “La brecha” is the name of one of the best songs of “Lo eterno”, a piece that shows us how the musical and lyrical qualities of this group are mixed.
Qualities that invites us to be part of their dreamy experience, from which it is impossible not to let oneself be carried away.
