El Silencio De Los Cuervos
Label: Universal Music Spain S.L.
Alejandro Sanz's gravelly flamenco-tinged vocals and orchestral yet intimate pop arrangements are hallmarks of the Spanish star's songs. Sirope's first single "Un Zombie a la Intemperie" is a classic example of the signature style that has set Sanz apart from other Latin singers. Elsewhere on the album, Sanz raps ("A Mi No Me Importa"), gets brassy ("A Que No Me Dejas"), and tells his young son a story in song ("Capitán Tapón"). As usual, Sanz sets his musical bar high -- and clears it.
