Fernando Márquez (aka El Zurdo) (of Kaka de Luxe, Paraíso and La Mode fame) has described Charlie Mysterio as a worthy representative of the "third route", a grey and special land also inhabited, according to Márquez, by other Spanish artists such as Vainica Doble or Solera, characterized by musical coordinates halfway between the elevated, the sublime and accessible pop, maybe both things at the same time. (Charlie) Mysterio is a project in constant transformation which looks for beauty in imperfection, unbridled effervescence, honest stimulation, and with all that he creates songs in the old-fashioned way, with catchy choruses and vocal harmonies but also testing the surprise threshold of the listener. He's a singer-songwriter with a fuzz pedal and a Roland TR-606 as travel companions on this journey, which could be another one tomorrow and will probably change again on the stage. In a career spanning several decades, Charlie Mysterio has never ceased writing beautiful and timeless songs spread among a large discography on labels such as Spicnic, Walden, Elefante He has recorded with Kikí d'Akí, Papaya, and Márquez, among others, and his work has always received the support of Juan de Pablos, becoming a fixture on his national radio show Flor de Pasión. Mysterio's new album opens a new musical door for him compared to Los Caramelos, his main project over the years. This time he delivers an eponymous album bursting with anthem-like eternal melodies, songs that would reach the top of the pop charts in an ideal imagined world. At times one can imagine a hypothetical collaboration between Suicide and The Beach Boys with Giorgio Moroder producing, but there are also moments that go beyond any possible comparison where Mysterio plays with the listener using his own language. Includes CD.
