Drama Y Luz
Label: WM Mexico
It's hard to describe a Mana album and not use the word "epic." Everything these guys do just evokes an image of a stadium full of fans, arm raised, swaying and singing along, maybe even tearing up at each righteous guitar riff, each dramatic swell, each anthemic chorus. Mana has perfected the art of big rock, but they don't rest on their laurels. Drama y Luz (what a title) stretches its pathos and passion out across dance beats, harmonica rock, '80s synths, Latin chants, accordions and more. Gluing all those elements together are some of the prettiest rock vocals you'll ever hear.
