Antonio Gallardo is a two-faced Tijuanero who can’t keep quiet. And that’s a good thing. If it weren’t for his multiple personality disorder, we wouldn’t have this new, magnetic Tony Gallardo II release. Tormento/La Ruptura is a doubled-down look at just how twisted and bottomless Gallardo’s mind can get. Like María y José, Tony Gallardo II explores Gallardo’s fascination with violent opulence, madness, and death, all through deceptively sunny synths. There’s a lot of misdirection in Gallardo’s work, as he supports his grim-championing lyrics with the usually light, almost-too-cutesy compositions (oh-so-ruidosón). An Antonio Gallardo song is never what you expect it to be.
