Opinion On The Artist's Work Overall Up To This Point? - Well, after listening to their previous albums prior to this release, I can say that they're probably a band that I respect more than I actually like. Don't get me wrong, I liked what I heard mostly, but they've always seemed like an extremely experimental band, enough to the point where the material just didn't really click with me. Their 2008 self-titled release was probably my favorite for being a little more rough and gritty than their other work. However, I had heard a lot of critical acclaim surrounding this album from friends in the blogosphere, so I decided, "hey, let's give this a shot".
Is There Any Sort Of Event Surrounding The Making Of This Album? - I've seen the band posting the definition of the word, "duende" a lot. The word itself means, "a quality of passion and inspiration", so naturally it probably means how they want to describe their latest album of the same name. Other than that, no not to the best of my knowledge.
