Allmusic 4/5 stars[1]
CAFÉ TACUBA The greatest rock band in Mexico and -- to some ears -- possibly even the world returns with "Sino," its first studio record in four years... "Café Tacuba, has been Mexico's pre-eminent rock band for [over a] decade, and it keeps getting better and more ambitious... Café Tacuba dares to treat rock as art... better than almost all other rock these days... one of the most important bands in the hemisphere. a smart, cosmopolitan band with a broad streak of lighthearted surrealism.

— The New York Times[2]

The group remains the marquee name in Spanish-language rock... Nobody has come along to seriously challenge the stature and influence of Café Tacuba.

— Los Angeles Times[3]
