Cuatro Caminos (literally: Four Roads, the name of a major road intersection and metro station in Mexico City and Madrid) is the fifth album by Café Tacuba, released in 2003. All tracks by Café Tacuba. The album is marked by wordplay, as in the song titles "Hoy Es" (sounds like "Oyes" - You're Listening), "Soy o Estoy", and "Hola Adiós" (sounds like "Hola a Dios", meaning "Hello to God").

Cafe Tacuba come straight out of Mexico City with a spicy blend of rock en Espanol, with Jamaican ska/reggae and African-American hip-hop sonic seasonings. And unlike their counterparts, they've managed to keep the critics, record companies, and their fans happy. This CD, which translates as Four Ways, is their first full release since 1999. And with this album CAFE TACVBA joins this selected elite. Cafe Tacvba borrows from hip-hop, Ska, pop, rock, punk, new-wave, etc, etc and create a hybrid that is recognizable yet completely original in its approach. But don't believe that the only accomplishment of this album is in its sound. The songwriting (music & lyrics) are simply amazing.

The promotional sticker on the cover touts Cuatro Caminos (Four Roads) as the Rock en Espanol Kid A. That’s pretty far off the mark, but I could get down with the Rock en Espanol The Bends. Astute music enthusiasts will note the name Dave Fridmann on the back of the album; the fifth Flaming Lip produced three tracks here, most notably the somewhat jazzy, not quite trippy, always enchanting Encantamiento Inutil. While this is undoubtedly the most experimental track on the album, it doesn’t feel out of place, which speaks to the breadth of Cafe Tacuba’s sound. Eighties dance pop, springy hard rock, muted electronics - it’s all here, and you won’t need a translating dictionary to appreciate it. TAGS.
