by Aleks Syntek
Released: Dec 2012
Aleks Syntek may look like the second coming of Justin Timberlake on this album cover. But don't be fooled: This is still our chubby-cheeked, oh-so-slightly-alternative pop divo at heart. He soars on duets (like robo-ballad "No Me Dejes Olvidarte" with Pambo), rocks the sweeping pop drama like nobody's business and, most of all, makes dance-pop that sounds welcomingly familiar and just a little ... weird. Highlights include the twisted '80s synth-pop of "La Radio de Tokio" and the eerie yet affable "Del Interior al Exterior" (which also might be a perfect metaphor for his sound and career).
