No Puedo Parar – Manolito y Su Trabuco

£7.20£14.00

No Puedo Parar offers me two tracks of passing

interest. Manolito’s tribute to the late Juan Formell, a cover of Los Van Van’s classic Por Encima Del Nivel, (Sandunguera), is nicely done. Funky, original and highly recommended, Eterno Formell covers the same song better.
Once past the narcissistic boy band kitsch of the cuerpo (introduction verse) Los Hijos de La Noche also develops quite a swing. 
If the title track seems aimed at the euro-pop market, the remainder of the album has the front line affecting sentiment to compensate for a lack of emotional charge in the material and arrangements. I’m wondering whether the enduring popularity of this band is based less upon what they actually produce these days than past reputation and their adaptation to foreign sensibilities while being, in a niche market, fashionably Cuban. 
If this is what you’re looking for, fair enough, but please have a look around the site, there’s some truly brilliant music here.
Although I haven’t checked it, I suspect there’s more material on the DVD. Locos Por Mi Habana was certainly one of the band’s better tracks of this century.
