"Retrovisor" is a road stop to review COOPER's trajectory during the last months, before getting back in the lane which is providing pop fans from all over the world with so many good times. "Retrovisor" is a new COOPER album, although the band has only recorded three new songs; in short sessions, always stuck to their compromise with immediacy and spontaneity. They have been reunited in an album with other songs that have been appearing during 2003 and 2004 in different formats. Twelve songs to be a past viewfinder, a complete retro-spective.After listening to these twelve bright, energetic, timeless pop songs, we come to a clear conclusion: this release, taken as an album, stands up perfectly without support, as a qualitative step forward from the already consistent "Fonorama", but also benefits from the vigour, the nerve and the audacity of these short and concentrated recording sessions. Small restorative pills of an immediate effect, along with their characteristic riffs and melodies, such as the three brand new songs, previously unreleased: "Munich", "Rabia" (THE BEATLES leaked through the most speedy new wave) and "A Oscuras" (nostalgic and intimate); most songs (some of them remixed) from their two previous singles, "747" and "Oxidado", already out of stock and this way available for their large audience; and a variety of rarities: "Cierra los ojos" (a gift with the 2003 tour ticket and previously unsold), the cheerful "Sin respiraci�n" (previously included in the Modapop" compilation) and a cover of LOS FLECHAZOS' classic "Quiero regresar", which appeared on the cd gifted with the Kitchenette fanzine, besides being released in a split-single with German band THE CHEEKS.Besides, this album (which will also be released on a vinyl limited edition, only 600 copies in white vinyl and a luxuriant jacket) includes the video clips of the songs "747", "Cerca del sol" and "Cierra los ojos", as well as pictures and information about the band.
