AllMusic Review by

Christina Rosenvinge is a restless, creative spirit, always more inclined to look forward rather than backwards. Such an outlook in life goes a long way toward explaining why her first compilation appeared as she was well into the third decade of her fascinating career. The lovingly put-together box set Un Caso Sin Resolver displays, in chronological order, a comprehensive picture of Rosenvinge's many mutations, from her frivolous pop star beginnings to her current cult/indie goddess status. The first disc is devoted to her work with Christina y Los Subterráneos, the second to her New York trilogy (sung in English), and the third to her masterpieces Tu Labio Superior (2008) and La Joven Dolores (2010). A fourth rarities disc is also included as a bonus, and features demos, scattered tracks, and even a new version of "Chas! Y Aparezco a Tu Lado," the 1987 smash hit for Álex y Christina that turned her into a star overnight. A DVD with her videos and a book with texts by colleagues and admirers such as Lee Ranaldo and Nacho Vegas, as well as by Rosenvinge herself, complete this exemplary package.
