I discovered that I don't care for this AT ALL.
On paper, it's right up my street...strident title, left-leaning, foreign language.
As it turns out, it's a bunch of wet noodle.
What do you guys hear in this track?!
You must remember when I bought this back in the 80's, we didn't have a lot of latin music to compare it to. Working Week used good players and this one had a certain lightness of touch. Nice rhythms and the right sentiment.
I wouldn't pick it myself, but it's nice seeing it in someone else's list. I preferred Weekend, their prior band, to Working Week though.
I bought it in the 80s too off the back of a review that said it was great but that purists would hate it.
Thirty years later that reviewer is still right.
