If you own Wild, Beautiful, Damned a lot of the songs will be familiar. The differences here are "Livin' La Vida Loca" (with a shout out to Rocklahoma no less!), "Chica's Peligrosa," and "1-2-3-4 Kiss Me Then I'm Damned For Sure." The good news is that both these tracks are top notch - and a ton of fun.
Of these three new songs, I think my favorite is "Livin' La Vida Loca." No, I'm not a Ricky Martin fan (although I do think Life is underrated for a pop album, but I digress) and I don't necessarily dig cover tunes, but this version is executed really well. The guitars are crunchy and all-in-all the Gypsy Pistoleros have improved upon an overplayed song. Actually, I'd say the Gypsy Pistoleros know a sight more about living a crazy life than Ricky Martin anyway!
The Gypsy Pistoleros just changed bass players, so the person you hear on the recording is not who you will be seeing on stage. At any rate, all the musicianship on Para Siempre is absolutely top notch. For the life of me, I haven't been able to figure out how Lee Pistolero can sing Spanish...without his British accent. I guess that's just one of the wonders of the world.
Para Siempre has a release date of January 24, 2008. Do yourself a favor and pick up a copy...and find out why the Gypsy Pistoleros are the single most inventive band of the last decade.
