Reviews: Manta Ray – Torres de Electricidad

Originally published in Punk Planet #79, May/June 2007

Spain’s answer to Fugazi offers an energetic 10-song disc that seems to lash out in a hundred different directions at once.

Listeners, as a result, get rocking barnburners (“No Tropieces”) and sprawling post-punk (“Mi Dios Mentira”) alongside dirgy, haunted ballads (“Como La Sal”) and trippy sound-experiments (“Don’t Push Me;” the 10-minute-long title track).

This chameleon of a disc is nothing if not thorough in its scope or desire to please.
