This 2009 release is by far the best solo effort from Francisco Nixon, if not the best album of the year. It's not often that a record turns out to be so perfect from beginning to end, but El Perro es mio is one of them. The songs just feel like they oozed out from the soul of a genius: think of Prefab Sprout, Nick Drake, Belle and Sebastian or the Go-betweens. Every song unfolds with such precision, charm and humble grandeur that it is impossible to walk away from this album unaffected. Mr Nixon is in fine form here, the music is excellent through and through and every self respecting pop fan should enjoy it!
