iTunes Editors’ Notes

While not as overtly experimental as 1992’s Kiko or the 1994 Latin Playboys side project of David Hidalgo and Louie Perez, Colossal Head does share some of that same arty aesthetic. It also rocks harder and features tougher grooves than anything Los Lobos had released since By the Light of the Moon. For proof, check out the scorching guitar of “Mas y Mas,” the tough rhythm break on “Can’t Stop the Rain,” or the gritty dual guitar and sax propulsion of “Manny’s Bones” and the title track. Focused, tight, and without filler, the album is also unselfconsciously eclectic. The soundscapes and effects that float around the edges of tunes like “Life Is Good” and “Little Japan” add texture while still fully supporting the songs. The studio wizardry works because of the strength of the songs and the overwhelming talent of the band, making Colossal Head a soulful marriage of creative restlessness and rock solid musical chops.

Customer Reviews

Los Lobos extraordinary Colossal Head!!

This amazing collection of songs should not be overlooked, it drips with great guitar tones, amazing drumming lock it down tight. This collection shows how original and funky Los lobos really are. This changed everything for my love of this band! check out; "Mas y Mas", "Maricela", and "Life is Good" always makes me smile.

Mas Y Mas

I've been a fan of these guys for many years and this is my all-time favorite Los Lobos record. It rocks!

Melt the days away with this one...........

Such a perfect combination of smooth and gritty. If all you know is "La Bamba" you've got big suprise coming. This album will take you on trips through your mind. Perfect blend of ultra modern and retro cool.

My dream concert would be Los Lobos and ZZ Top sharing the stage together, talk about bands just oooozing cool...........

One of the most acclaimed American bands of the 1980s and '90s, Los Lobos were seasoned musical veterans with nearly 15 years of experience under their belts when they scored their first hit in 1987 with a cover of Richie Valens' "La Bamba." Though their time as pop stars was short, the group — who enjoyed calling themselves "just another band from East L.A." — won over critics and a legion of loyal fans with their bracing mixture of rock, blues, Tex-Mex, country, R&B, and Mexican...
