Los Lobos
La Pistola y El Corazon
Warner Brothers

By Tom Pryor

Published September 13, 2005

Los Lobos may be the best rock and roll band working in America today. That they happen to be mostly Chicanos from East L.A. is just icing on the cake. But on this 1988 watershed album, Los Lobos, fresh off the La Bamba soundtrack, put aside rock to examine their Mexican musical roots. The band delved into a variety of Mexican folkloric styles, with their guitars leading the way. Everything here from the rollicking nortena of "Si Yo Quisiera" and son jarocho of "La Gucamaya" to the mournful huapango "Amarillas" is top-notch, making this one of the best albums of Los Lobo's long career.
