FRONTERA is a 1999, 11-track release by Uruguayan singer and songwriter Jorge Drexler and includes "Edad Del Cielo" and "Aquellos Tiempos."
This album marks a clear turning point in Jorge Drexler's career. While his first two albums for Virgin, Vaiven and Llueve, where conceived in a classic singer/songwriter style, for Frontera Drexler teamed up with Peyote Asesino's Juan Campod¢nico and Carlos Casacubierta to make a more compelling and adventurous album. There's an electronic treatment through the album, but it's a sophisticated one, blended with candombe, zamba, milonga, and pop sensibility. This album is probably the strongest of his career to date. It's fully loaded with great songs like "Princesa Bacana," "La Edad del Cielo," "Coraz¢n de Cristal," and "Alto el Fuego." It's like a best-of in itself. And for certain, it's a must for anyone interested in a delicate and sophisticated songwriter like Drexler. ~ Iv n Adaime
