Album Review

El Leon is a transitional album. Throughout the album, it's clear the Fabulosos Cadillacs are slowly developing their fusion of rock, reggae, and Latin music. While tracks such as "Carnaval Toda La Vida" and "Gitana" are lightweight salsa, there are attempts at weightier material.

While El Leon is not as incandescent as later records, the quality of the songwriting makes it worth hearing. ~ Victor W. Valdivia, Rovi
