Andrea Echeverri's got cute in the bag. On her second solo outing, the Aterciopelados singer harnesses a menagerie of adorable: whimsical polkas, children's giggles, whistles, bells, kazoos. Sounds like a cloying combo, huh? Well, it almost is, except that all that cute is couched in the high-caliber craftsmanship and infectious joie de vivre that's made Aterciopelados such a beloved institution. So the salty-sweet "Yo" is more than a laundry list of figures Echeverri doesn't want to be (Juanes, Beyonce, Calle 13). It's an endearing declaration of individuality -- and a killer kazoo display.
