AllMusic Review by

The long-running Chilean rock band Los Tres is not only not broken up, it's making some of the best music of its career. Hagalo Usted Mismo, or "Do It Yourself," was recorded in New York and sounds like it: influences from Nirvana to the Beach Boys and everywhere in between break the surface early and often, and they're helped along by the flawless production of Clash-producer Joe Blaney. First single "Camino" bumps along to a boundary-free rockabilly beat, while the broken-hearted but beautiful sounding "Agua Bendita" adheres to a more traditional Chilean vibe. The disc is short -- ten tracks only, none especially epic -- but Los Tres makes every song count. Café Tacuba's Emmanuel del Real pitched in on several tracks, both as a musician and mixer.
