Album Review

From one of the kings of the contemporary Mexican ballad comes this album of soft vocal ballads laid over relatively lush arrangements. The content is the ever-present love song, sometimes mixed quietly with the bravado of a bandito (also pointed to by Fernandez's signature sombrero, pistol, and pantalones). The more upbeat numbers are essentially the standard mariachi fare one can hear on any number of albums or in local Mexican restaurants.
