Breed 77 - Un Encuentro Cover

This is rather like watching your dog follow up a nasty dump by squeezing out a nicely detailed miniature oil painting.

Breed 77 recently released an absolutely appalling single, 'Look At Me Now', so finding out that the same band could come up with this is rather like watching your dog follow up a nasty dump by squeezing out a nicely detailed miniature oil painting.

The obvious difference is that this record consists of their old tunes re-recorded in Spanish and songs like 'Petroleo' and 'Quiero Vivir' make good use of the Latin vibe, allied to some Iron Maiden-inspired guitar, to produce something with real Mediterranean drama and passion.

They still can't do a power ballad, 'El Rio' is awful, but if they want to save their career they should consider reverting to their mother tongue permanently.
