"La Bala is Tijoux's magnum opus, perhaps the most sumptuous album that rap en espaol has known." @ Los Angeles Times
"An arresting and self-possessed performer, an MC with impeccable command and flow, whether she's urging her now-global audience to speak out against injustice and oppression or riding a languorous, acid-jazz groove" @ Washington Post
"Latin American protest poetry, with its virtuoso lyrics" @ Boston Globe
