ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Recycle the old man, recycle the new one in your place... a new cycle begins." -Despierta (Awake)

CICLOS (CYCLES) is the new album by Gandhi. It's music and lyrics talk about life cycles and the slight line between illusion and reality present in humans' lives.

The album was released in september 2004 and contains 11 tracks: Ciclos (Cycles), Sr. Caballero (Mr. Gentleman), Celeste, Sombras (Shadows), Puente (Bridge), Vacío (Empty), Despierta (Awake), Una Ilusión (An Illusion), 40, Aire (Air), and El Sol y la Flor (The Sun and the Flower). It was produced by Mexican musician Sabo Romo, former member of legend rock band Caifanes, and producer of Gandhi's rendition of 'El septimo dia' in the Soda Stereo tribute by BMG.

"With the light we disappear, playing a game for us unknown... the world is a delirium of space and time." -Sombras (Shadows)

Gandhi's sound is mystical and melodic and their style is what they defined as 'eclectic rock in Spanish'. In this album 'CICLOS', the band sound their best and have put together a collection of soulful compositions which show their maturity and experience as a band for over 10 years of playing and recording.

Gandhi and producer Sabo Romo worked together with over 30 songs, all composed by Gandhi members. They picked out the musical pieces that make what Sabo called 'a pure rock album', like he had done with Jaguares 'Bajo el azul de tu misterio' a few years ago, which was nominated for two Latin Grammys.

"I reach this place where everything is natural and neutral. Today I start again, and like the rest I learn to judge." -Ciclos (Cycles)

The lineup included Luis (lead singer) on piano and keyboards besides the usual rock quartet. Abel (bass) recorded live and a special recording technique was used in which the bass amplifier is located behind the drummer, and so the microphones pickup the bass and make it more compressed and well defined. Federico (guitars) used several vintage guitars and amplifiers, including some tube amplifiers from the 60s and a few classic acoustic and electric guitars. Massimo (drums) recorded using a hybrid set composed from different drum sets with classic 70s sound, and also played a few acoustic guitars. Sabo Romo was also guest musician in vocals, acoustic guitars, and his main instrument the bass.

This music was written at a time of many changes in the world, and in the group members' personal lives, which came as inspiration for this eclectic and mystic album. 'CICLOS', or Cycles, is the kind of album that can go around in cycles in yourcd player for days and you can discover new sounds, textures and feelings each time a new cycle begins.

"amazing....well, i love this group and make me feel so good everytime that i hear it.Great job, and to much feelings in this cd.

hobs

¡bueno!
there are a lot of feelings winding up by listening to this banda. imo the language ads much to this kind of rock. the sound is in every way comparable to bigger bands of bigger countrys. it's artful, playful, soulful.
pura vida -

ESENCIA, SIN DUDA ALGUNA!
Con Ciclos, la banda tica llega a poner lo mejor de cada uno en escena; Federico simplemente es la dosis perfecta para una alucinacion musical eterna, Massimo suena cada vez mas solido alrededor de los cilindros de madera y su feeling se siente en cada tema al que añade su percusion, Luis, sin duda le da la personalidad y vida al disco con su voz inquietante y misteriosa que nos adentra en cada minimundo de las canciones y Abel, es el alma del disco, el sentimiento puro se siente en la calidad de su interpretacion.
Disco de exportacion sin mayor duda, disco con el cual se encuentra un sonido propio, inquietante y al mismo tiempo enviciante!

Adriana

Increible, uno de los mejores discos!
Es el mejor disco de rock, no solo nacional pero internacional. este disco forma mas a gandhi, ellos son mas que un grupo y con "Ciclos" lo han demostrado! Federico, Abel, Massimo y Luis ponen la mejor banda de rock en Costa Rica!

Paola Castillo

Muy bueno!!!
No es para menos... Gandhi ha demostrado que no son solo un grupo de rock más, se han consolidado como una de las mejores bandas de Costa Rica. Excelente CD!!!

Ernesto Adduci

El mejor disco de la banda hasta la fecha.
Si bien Gandhi ha trabajado durante mas de una decada en diferentes producciones que han abordado estilos musicales tan distintos como el rock latino y el rock pesado, no es sino hasta "Ciclos" en que Gandhi encuentra su verdadera identidad.

"Ciclos" es un disco de rock para rockeros. Con un concepto agradable, lirica a veces dulce, a veces inquisitiva y musica elaborada, el disco abre la puerta de Latinoamerica para esta banda que ya merece la atencion del continente.

La cancion homonima es el primer sencillo promocional en su natal Costa Rica y otras como "Sr. Caballero" y "Celeste" merecen ser escuchadas. La calidad de la grabacion es primer-mundista y entre sus puntos altos se cuenta la participacion del talentoso Sabo Romo en la produccion.

Atras quedo el viejo Gandhi, asi que si esta listo para empezar un nuevo ciclo, este es su disco.

andrea de guatemala
