Album Review

Since the mid-'90s, as the vocalist of the Tejano outfit Grupo Límite, the vivacious Mexican diva Alicia Villareal has made her mark in the somewhat hombre-dominated field of norteño. Her rich, quavering alto, passionate delivery, and spunky, cigarello-chomping persona have won over crowds and critics, and her post-millennial solo albums have consistently emerged on both the Latin charts and the mid- to lower echelons of the pop charts.

Standouts include the catchy single "Caso Perdido" and the aching "Anoche," on which Villareal sings with a compelling, windblown abandon.
