Album Review
Reviewed 2009-08-15
Tex Mex guitar songs. Blues tinge, country twang, broken hearts, and tequila. Nice little band with a couple guitars and mandolin -- not stripped-down, but it's more about dusty roadside bars than crowded big-city clubs. Occasional keyboards add a modern change of sound. Carrasco is a longtime musical warrior, great to see him still at it.
*FCC* on 6, massively so.

1- Mexican folky, mid/fast. Fun, even though it's a breakup song
2- Sentimental mid/fast with synth
3- Rolling mid/fast, pleasant
4- Inst. Midtempo spaghetti Western, mondo Morricone
5- Sharp-dressed midtempo step. Twangy.
6- *FCC* all over the place, but pretty funny.
7- Slow, pretty
8- Very country midtempo
9- Inst. Deep echoey Western. Slow.
10- Playful hangover song. Lyrics kinda random.
11- Sad mid/fast. Life-ruined-by-love song.
12- Inst. Tough buillfighting guitar.
13- Upbeat country/blues twang. "I did not lose my old lady, I just lost my place in line"
14- Instrumental version of 1. Kind of happy.
15- Beer-drinkin' rocker.
16- Slow instrumental. Flowing strings later.
HIDDEN - Around -14:50, a pleasant bouncy jam with keyboards that goes on for 13 minutes.
