 Watch A Highlight Reel Of Initial Shows And Reviews of “MultiViral”

Calle 13’s MultiViral Tour – Highlights First Phase

 “FOUR STARS – MultiViral ups the ante… the album excites like few others… Calle 13 are miles above their peers and countless imitators …a fearlessly experimental style of urban music unlike anything else… simply magnificent … if only current English rap were so inventive!” – All Music                                                                             

“[Calle 13 is] networked every which way: technologically, culturally, musically, socially, politically… songs that hold messages of solidarity, sympathy for the poor and demands for freedom & individuality”- NY Times

“[Calle 13] decided that the things that are most immortal are great ideas.  They are curious, follow their muse and they do their own thing sonically… They continually delight and amaze me”-Jon Pareles, NYT Popcast 

“C13’s most ambitious recording …their chemistry reaches new, uncharted territory…. a musical assault on the status quo with mind-bending soundscapes… a stomping, fist-pumping anthem to human endurance”- MTV

“Calle 13 is much more than a band of musicians: They are poets, comedians, journalists, satirists and political activists … few rappers can even come close to [Residente’s] flow” – NPR

“What if I told you there was a rapper as musically daring as Kanye West; as funny as Lil Wayne; [and] as politically engaged as M.I.A.; That rapper is René Pérez, aka Residente, the pugnacious voice of Calle 13. …one of the sharpest hip-hop acts in any language” – Slate

” forceful & emotionally arresting… a relentless commentary on materialism &violence in rap.” – Buzzfeed

“C13 perfectly combine profound social criticism with catchy melodies… ‘Adentro’ is extremely powerful. a story of impotence, injustice, and rebellion …so authentic, Listeners can feel the truth.” –The Source

“FIVE STARS – Few albums are as well-crafted and thought out as Calle 13’s MultiViral. Through it, the hybrid rap/alt-rock/urban/experimental band delivers its most sophisticated and best produced record thus far. It’s playful, profound and melodic while having raw power and guts unlike any other. The combination of the album’s arc, its craft and the variety of its sound while keeping a cohesive backbone is what makes MultiViral a virtually perfect record. Like many of Calle 13’s projects, MultiViral is a tour de force of intellectual flexing and lyrical gymnastics…inviting the listener to participate in Calle 13’s revolution. …It’s what good hip-hop should be, lyrically pliant and intelligent, full of energy and completely unpredictable. Each beat and each rhyme is entirely satisfying…it’s hard not to get chills. MultiViral soars, spits, takes you on a roller coaster and leaves you satisfied like no record I have heard in years.” – Sounds and Colors
