Twenty-two years ago today Caifanes their third album entitled El Silencio (The Silence).  The album holds multiple significances  both for the band and as well for Rock En Espanol as a genre. The record is regarded my many as the band’s biggest release as well as being the last album for the band as a quintet as keyboard player Diego Herrera and bassist Sabo Romo eventually left the band during the concert tours that followed the release. As well the album’s release happened at a time in which Rock En Espanol started growing as far as becoming a legitimate musical genre in Mexico after decades of repression  by the nation’s government.

Here’s an English-language article/review of the album from back in the days
