    Yello began a flirtation with a mutant form of Brazilian and Latin music, incorporating their trademark otherworldliness and staunch rhythms on STELLA, but the interstellar samba is in full force on ONE SECOND. "La Habanera" is five minutes of Sun Ra meets Jaoa Gilberto in the rainforest jamming to Kraftwerk, while "Moon in Ice" is an atmospheric ballad of sorts, that predates electronica's new millennial obsession with frenzied Latin American grooves, taking Esquivel to new galactic heights. "The Rhythm Divine" finds Mssrs. Meier and Blank in torch-song mode; think Shirley Bassey backed by Martians.
    ONE SECOND is easily Yello's most accessible record, a good entree into their particularly warped universe. And for an extra kick, they include their synth-funk staple "Oh Yeah," in case you missed it the first time around.

  • Critic Reviews
    Mojo (Publisher) (p.116) - 3 stars out of 5 - "ONE SECOND completely gives in to the Latin rhythms that were previously used sparingly, and cold be the most hip-swinging of all their albums."
