Vasos Vacíos (Spanish for "Empty Glasses") is the 8th album by Argentine rock, ska, and reggae band Los Fabulosos Cadillacs. This album, released in 1993, was a compilation album which included tracks from the band's previous seven albums (1986-1992). This album also contained new arrangements of previous songs, and new songs such as "El Matador".

This album earned a Gold Album from Argentine Chamber of Phonograms and Videograms Producers (Spanish: Cámara Argentina de Productores de Fonogramas y Videogramas, CAPIF). The Gold Album honor is given when an album sells more than 30,000 units. The band later appeared on the first Latin MTV Unplugged.

Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review by Victor W. Valdivia awarded the album 4.5 stars out of 5, stating:

"One of the new tracks, 'El Matador' became an instant smash hit on the newly launched MTV Latino, and deservedly so as the song comes on like a thundering locomotive. The other new track, 'V Centenario' is an assault on colonialism that's almost as forceful. Similarly, the re-recorded earlier hits, such as 'El Satanico and Dr. Cadillac' are delivered with far more energy and muscle than the original versions. Clearly, by this time, the band had become a more confident and cohesive unit. Vasos Vacios is an excellent introduction to the band's unique style."[1]
