Album Review

In his native New Mexico, Tobias Rene is a star, one of the leading lights of the state's unique blend of Tejano, traditional country, and smooth pop. This is a style of music that doesn't get much play east of Portales, north of Raton, or west of Farmington, however, so for his third album, Rene reinvented himself as a straightforward contemporary country act.

Living Dreams might open up Tobias Rene's audience a bit, but the new fans aren't getting the whole picture.
