Ska-P is, without a doubt, one of the best ska bands in the market. Their upbeat style, many times mixed with either punk or traditional spanish music, is absolutely contagious. The introduction of 'Intifada' is wonderful, and the instrumentals of 'Welcome to Hell' or 'Solamente por Pensar' are great. If you like ska or punk rock, you'll love this album.

In terms of lyrics, Ska-P is a spanish version of Rage Against the Machine. Their lyrics are heavily political, often displaying left-wing or anarchist views. 'Intifada' is supporting the Palestinian struggle against Israel, while 'Welcome to Hell' is about racial discrimination in the United States. 'El Nio Soldado' is a wonderful song about the child soldiers of African and Middle-Eastern countries, while the lighter 'Mis Colegas' is about friendship and comradery. Coupled with the singer's good voice and the wonderful instrumentals, the lyrics fit very well into their sound.
Overall Impression — 8
As I said before, any ska and punk rock fan will like this album. Mixing the two genres in its very own sound, Ska-P has become one of the most famous and influental spanish bands ever. Highlights are 'Intifada', 'El Nio Soldado' and 'Welcome to Hell'. I recommend purchasing this album.
