Retour is a comeback record for the Grammy-winning Chilean pop/rock ensemble -- sort of. The set features a slew of their hits between the years 1989 and 2004 and includes performances from their MTV Unplugged album and one brand-new track, entitled "Olvidar," cut before their reunion tour. Other highlights include "Cielo Market," "Delirando," "Hombre," "Ámate y Sálvate," "Surazul," and the unplugged recordings of "Mentira" and "Intenta Amar." This is an excellent opportunity to reassess not only La Ley's success, but their contribution to Latin rock and pop. They helped to open the door for a host of artists not only in Chile, but from across the entire Latin popular music spectrum.
