Gypsy-punks Gogol Bordello return with their sixth album and first on their new label ATO. This album has Latin influences which are new for them and can especially be heard on the songs “We Rise Again” and “Malandrino”. While Pura Vida Conspiracy isn’t the best album they have released, it is still a solid effort that is full of songs that will be live favorites. In addition to the two tracks I just mentioned there is “Lost Innocent World”, “Amen”, “My Gypsy Auto Pilot”, “Dig Deep Enough” and “John the Conqueror (The Truth is Always the Same)”.
