Album Review

The last album released before Caifanes changed their name to Los Jaguares is a triumph of progressive pop-metal entwined with Latin ideas. Though the group is often compared to U2 the two have never sounded less similar; the band developed a harder style here that comes close to early Metallica territory at times. Though Saul Hernandez is a near match for Bono in his histrionic style and socially conscious lyrics, he adopts a low croon for many of these songs. The group's Mexican character is displayed through the Spanish lyrics, sinuous guitar lines, and lively percussion that is far more complex than most bands from North of the border. El Nervio del Volcan was a deservingly popular album and won over many American fans, some of whom spoke little or no Spanish but could tell a great band when they heard one.

One of THE BEST albums ever recorded in Spanish

By far Caifanes' BEST work and the composition of the entire album in every aspect is evidence enough! From track 1 till the end, this album reminds one of early 70's rock albums that knew how to satisfy auraly. Lo mas chin-gon de chin-gon. (This album is in my top 5 of all time)

Seattleluco, please stop commenting.

The group issued their eponymously titled debut LP in 1988, earning some U.S. airplay with the single "La Negra Tomasa." The follow-up, 1990's El Diablito, expanded on Caifanes' sound by further incorporating the influence of traditional Caribbean styles into their dark, synth-driven brand of pop/rock, while...
