Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2003-10-05 
Sunny, friendly rock with soft male vocals and some Mexican influence here and there. Harmony vocals are tight and understated on 1. Spanish lyrics on 2, 3 (partly), 11, 12

It's irresistable but WRONG to compare them to Los Lobos, because these guys can't rock as hard. Case in point: #4, which starts out with nice bluesy licks but brick-walls itself with a bland happy chorus.

This disc comes mostly from singer-songwriter territory, with the occasional creative diversion into Latin themes. Emphasizes variety rather than innovation, but it's good overall.

1*- Mid/fast, gentle folk-rock feel
2- Mid/fast, in Spanish, mildly mariachi
3- Slow Latin jazz feel
4- Blazing midtempo rocker w/less blazing horns
5*- Soft mid/fast cowboy rock
6*- Country rock, w/accordion
7- Midtempo solid beat with Latin/blues horns
8- Quieter, breezy, with mid/fast beat
9*- Mid/fast. Catchy simple pop
10- Calypso, Jimmy Buffet-like. Funny alcohol song.
11- Slow, slinky Latin lounge
12- Midtempo minor-key Latin shuffle
13- Mellow, w/solid midtempo beat
14- Hidden track, breezy
