Any way you want it, you can get La Habitación Roja’s new album, Años Luz which was released May 28, 2021 on digital platforms. The band released it in various formats, including cassette which has found a new audience and collector.
Going back through my collection of digital files, it looks like I have most of the band’s albums. I downloaded the album this week and began my listen to Años Luz. And with four complete listens under my belt, I decided it was time to review this album. I am having a hard time trying to decide what to say about this album as I am impartial about it for the most part.
I have sixteen different albums from the Spanish band, La Habitación Roja and this is the first one that I am attempting to review. Not because I am not a fan but when there is so much music out there, one has to be picky. The band hit my radar in 2016 with the release of the album, Sagrado corazón. I purchased the album on vinyl from Spain at the time. Thinking of the band, I go back to that time and the band had much more of a rock sound than the atmospheric pop sound that we hear on this year’s release of Años Luz.
La Habitación Roja released Años Luz in various formats, including cassette which has found a new audience and collector.
While I really enjoy the more mellow pop sounds that are coming out of Spain; at some point, it continues to sound the same. This is why I stated I was having a hard time knowing what to say. It sounds the same. Nothing screamed WOW to me as I listened over and over again for this review. This doesn’t mean it’s a bad album; on the contrary, it is very good and has a home in my collection.
