El Salmon Review

by Iván Adaime

This edition condenses the original five-disc box set into a digestible single disc that is suppose to be the easiest way to get into the most ambitious and difficult album Andrés Calamaro has ever recorded. So the original 103 songs are reduced here to "just" 25, mainly composed by pieces from the first "finger" (Calamaro always considered each CD from the original El Salmon as a finger from the same hand rather than a simple disc). The songs selected are the ones that get closer to his previous efforts, but the subversive drug-fueled spirit that rules the whole production is still the theme here. There are "classic" Calamaro songs like "Revolución Turra" and "Ok Perdón," along with other pieces that are "out of it" like the bizarre rap "Enola Gay," the cheerful "Horarios Esclavos," and the twisted funk of "Vigilante Medio Argentino." Although it's better to find the original five-disc set, this is not a bad place to start, at least it will give you a taste of El Salmon.
