HEARTACHES BY THE NUMBER

“Two Latin-inflected records that wouldn’t convey half the anguish they do were it not for the spit and polish they got in the studio. Both should be required listening for anyone who thinks that raw emotion can’t be served by slick arrangements and production.” 
—Bill Friskics-Warren in Heartaches by the Number
