Los Amigos Invisibles - The Venezuelan Zinga Son, Vol. 1 Review



This is the semi-new album, from Los Amigos Invisibles, their third or fourth. After they lost some of their appeal to some people, they added the production team "Masters at Work," which consists of Kenny "Dope" Gonzalez and "Little" Louie Vega, trying to regain their place.

01 RICO PA' GOZA
An 8 second intro. Whatever.

02 COMODON JOHNSON
A laid back bossa nova song. It's just a little too slow to be this long, but its good for what it is.

03 UNA DISCO LLENA
Getting to a more "latin funk anthem" vibe here, this song is faster and holds up better to its length (5:31).

04 VENEZUELAN ZINGA SON
Sounding like the last song, cause theyre suppossed to be interconnected. This one is noticeably shorter (2:30). It also is a stronger song than the last one, from my point of view.

05 PLAYA AZUL
Once again, a funky feel to a beachside bossa nova song. It also has alot more singing to it, so despite being a lengthier song, it holds up better than the first bossa nova song.

06 EASE YOUR MIND
This is a cover of a Scottish band's song. It sounds smooth, with its sparkling keys and funky bass and sax. The accented English can be kind of annoying though.

07 ISYORMAIN
This sounds like the last one. Hold on, i get it. Its says Is (Ease) Yor (Your) Main (Mind). Its not as good as Ease Your Mind but its definitely interesting.

08 GERUNDIO
More of a salsa flavor on this one, but they do really never stick to one style - case in point, this has a synth and a funk guitar. Oh and Im really not getting the titles.

09 OJOS CERRANDO
This doesnt really standout except for the drummer, who gets more aggressive here. Otherwise its far from bad, just that it doesnt stand out in between the other songs.

10 ESTO ES LO QUE HAY
I'm pretty sure this is the lead single. Another more Salsa-ish song. This one has great lyrics and overall rhythm. This one is a standout track.

11 MAJUNCHE
Pretty cool funk track, but there's better on this album. Is it just me, or does this song have a slight jazz vibe?

12 MAMBO CHIMBO
Interesting. I actually get the feeling that I like this song more than I should.

13 DIABLO
This is produced by DJ Dimitri from Paris. I remember a song by him called "Give Me Love", where the video was a pile of lesbians singing or something like that. Lesbians aside, this is a good funk track.

14 CALNE
This song sounds old. I've heard better.

15 SUPERF*CKER
A somewhat humorous song mocking a guy who tell girls its like he had super fucking powers.

16 BRUJA
This one has uptempto tropical percussion and some superb guitar playing. Ovearll, real good.

17 GORDITAS DE MARIO
Another somewhat humorous song. This serves its purpose but its not a highlight. Btw, its an 8:35 song, and you swear its gonna end right now, and then it doesnt, at least 4 times.

18 ESTO ES LO QUE HAY (REGGAETON REMIX)
This song has some really creative horns, and that little reggaeton drum beat except not programmed and bland, but with someone banging on a drum set. Theres a funky bassline and synths as well as a piano hidden in there as well. This is probably the best reggaeton song ive heard ever, and ive heard alot (mostly not by choice.)

BEST SONGS: Esto Es Lo Que Hay and the remix, Ease Your Mind, Bruja, Venezuelan Zinga Son, Playa Azul.

RATING: 4.5 / 5
