The most exciting music to come out of Latin America in the last 15 years belongs to the genre known as rock en español—the fusion of Anglo alt-rock with Latin folklore that is examined in this volume. What began as a cult movement in the late 1960s has blossomed into a popular phenomenon that embodies the eclectic aesthetic of Hispanic youth. The author has followed the development of the genre for years, spending time with the artists, watching them in concert, and conducting numerous interviews. This is his definitive account of a movement that has forever changed the history of Latin American music—and expanded the boundaries of rock. Included are intimate and insightful portraits not only of older big-name acts like Café Tacvba, Fabulosos Cadillacs, Aterciopelados, Caifanes, and Soda Stereo, but also of newer acts like Julieta Venegas, Los Amigos Invisibles, El Gran Silencio, Orishas, and the Nortec Collective. Newcomers to these sounds will find in this book a thorough introduction to the genre, as it also contains a discography of its 100 essential albums. Aficionados will appreciate the book's in-depth commentary, anecdotes, and inside stories.

An amazing book about my favorite genre. Explains the heavy hitter and where the music is heading to.
Nuadazius
His mayor contribution to the critisism of the genre is that he leaves out both latin pop artists like Shakira an Mana and major players like Heroes del Silencio or Tri under the premise that their music is like any other anglo rock group just singing in spanish, not doing any kind of fussion so a hundred poins for that. So based on this he is mostly rigth about Soda Stereo. Unfortunately he gets somethings wrong specially when talking about mexican rock. He favours Manu Chao over Mano Negra and Jaguares over Caifanes and he didn't even mentions "El Silencio" probably the best latin rock album of all time. Another unexcusable omision is Victimas del Dr. Cerebro, come on ¡, while including Los Amigos Invisibles which are too poppy for the book I think. Some of the chapters are way too short but the selection af artists is very good, he includes ska, and even electronica artists like Bajo Fondo and Nortec Collective. I reall wish he would have talked more about Babasónicos but its ok. Overall a great book. I really want to encourage him to do an expanded edition. That is so necesarry

Ernesto Lechner's book is a must-have for any fan of Latin rock and Latin alternative music, especially those who are looking to learn more about the background and origins of one of the most exciting genres ever to emerge.

Lechner writes clearly, and has a great grasp of the music. Whether or not you are a lifelong fan or a recent newcomer to Latin rock, this is a book worth owning.

The Saul Hernandez-written introduction is also wonderful - what a coup that Jaguares' legendary vocalist was a contributor!

Yes to everything that has been said in the other reviews. Anyone who wants to know what rock en espanol is about should read this book. The author clearly has in depth and personal knowledge of the subject matter. He also expands the definition of rock and introduced me to some artists I had never heard of.

It is interesting to know the stories behind the musicians that changed our world forever. Lechner probes this and much more with his great visionary writing. The latin american fabric of mixed cultures let's Rock en Espanol finds it's own identity.

With this legacy, american Rock 'n Roll will never be the same!
