The Walkabouts - Berlin
The Walkabouts are back: Berlín es un documento de una banda que nunca ha tomado el camino fácil, una banda que ha vivido mucho y, a veces duramente, y viven para contarlo, una banda que se niega a caer en la complacencia, una banda que continúa reinventándose.

Berlín es el sonido de una banda que no tiene nada que demostrar, salvo que se pueden realizar grandes interpretaciones de sus canciones, realmente grandes.

"Berlin is a wonderful instant classic, a cornerstone of modern American music."
Onda Rock, Italy - (9/10)

"From the first sound of opener "Rainmaker Blues" to the final cymbal crash of the twelve-minute masterpiece "Grand Theft Auto," the long wait was worth it."
Laut, Germany - 4/5

"One reason to be cheerful is that the Walkabouts are still going after more than a quarter of a century. Another is that they can put out an album as good as [Travels In The Dustland] when they've worked so long together. For more than a decade, their music has taken on a more cinematic sweep, and that seems to find its apex in this journey through a mythical American Southwest. It's an epic ambition, and one that they pull of magnificently."
