"Originally released in 2007. "Manu Chao makes music that cuts across cultural lines. As though singing in seven languages (French, Spanish, Galician, Arabic, English, Portuguese, and Wolof) wasn't enough, he brings aspects of music from across Western Europe, North Africa, and the Americas into his sound. You could say he was destined to live a life between cultures from the start. He was born in Paris to Spanish parents who had fled Franco's regime. His mother was from Bilbao, in Basque country, while his father was a journalist from Galicia, a region in far northwestern Spain that, like Basque country, has its own unique language... The most immediately noticeable thing about La Radiolina is how relatively rocked-up it is relative to its two predecessors. It's as though his old affiliation with the Latin Alternative movement and punk decided to reassert themselves. Mind you, it's not the kind of rock that's going to smack you around with its riffs and stomping drums -- this is more measured than that, and cut with so many global influences that it can't help sounding unique... Manu Chao is living proof that you don't have to be big in the U.S. to be one of the world's most important and influential musicians, and La Radiolina provides a healthy reminder it's a big world out there beyond our borders." --Pitchfork. Gatefold sleeve; comes with a CD copy of the album."
