Eso Es Lo Que Hay
Released: Nov 2011
If you fell in love with Choc Quib Town's fierce fire-spitting, juicy (often Afro-folkloric) beats and "Colombian Fugees" stylings, well, the group's second international release might come as a shock. Eso Es Lo Que Hay opens with some of Oro's vim and vigor on the Tego Calderon-featuring lead single "Calentura," and things get amped up again later on "Robber." But in between is a whole lot of lite salsa and mainstream pop. The group's charismatic enough to pull it off, but the album needs an anthemic fire-starter like "Somos Pacificos" -- and a whole lot more rapping from the fabulous Goyo.
