Tristeza El Nuestro Desafio
- Words: Scott Thill
- Label: Better Looking
Unlike the spiraling guitar instrumentals of their previous effort A Colores, Tristeza's latest disc is a mostly formless slate of ambient drum-tracking. Sure, there are a few atmospherics, but barely any of them come from a guitar, and none of the songs stick around long anyway. Only the hypnotic nine-minute title track aims for epic proportions; the rest barely clock in more than two minutes apiece, and often sound like half-finished experiments that were adopted then abandoned. Much more compelling and illuminating is the accompanying DVD, which shows the band gut it out on the road.
