Molotov

Dance and Dense Denso (Surco/Universal)

Contrary to popular belief, the Spanish word putodoesn't mean "fag." To Molotov, putois anything that's bad, wrong. For example, if you accused Molotov of homophobia for its 1997 hit "Puto" (which repeated a puuuuuto-puuuuuto" chorus dozens of times), that automatically qualifies you as a puto-- the song was a favorite in gay discos in Mexico City. According to Molotov -- the Mexican bilingual hardcore rap 'n' metal quartet that sold over a million copies of its debut album, Donde Jugaran las Niñas?-- Bush and Saddam are putos, the Border Patrol gringos are a bunch of putos,and those who hold suspected terrorists with no charges and no lawyers are putosas well.

Dance and Dense Denso, Molotov's third album, marks the return of ace producer Gustavo Santaolalla, who did the first one but produced only a few of the songs for the second, Apocalypshit. Musically and lyrically, the band members seem to be saying "Let's fuck" and "Don't you touch me, you fucking immigration police bastard" but ultimately ask their American friends, "What would you do if you were in our shoes?" One rule, though: Listen to the album nonstop, from beginning to end. Treat it as a scientific marvel. You may not understand what it's saying, but Molotov will ultimately knock your socks off.
