A few excellent tracks and the balance ok. Probably best to wait until they produce a mix album unless you are already a fan

I bought this having listened to the T&T tracks on RR's 'From Dusk till Dawn' film. This CD doesn't disappoint although musically the tracks are quite varied. My wife hates it but then again she likes Girls Aloud....

THE Sleeper of the Twentieth Century 21 Nov 2001
By Paul Fucich - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I would have to rate this recording as one of my personal (short list of) favorites. In my opinion this music is among the top 20 rock albums recorded in the twentieth century, it is that good! This album tells a story, there is a flow, a purpose. Not only are you subjected to musical variety, you take a musical journey too. There is nothing about this selection that does not incorporate musical apocalypse. In other words, the journey taken is a journey through human dysfunction and the emotions therein. Having said that, for me, listening to this CD is a kind of discovery. The subject matter is intense folks! I happen to love the way the songs flow, from one theme into the other, like a progression.
Regarding the music, there is a combination of several genres present. You can taste blues, folk, ballad, and pop, all blended in the rock that has that "south of the border" flavor--that is yet difficult of accurate description. The music and melody make the record, but then on top of that there is the performance! The performance gives the already classic music, that edge, that feel. There is a soulful element throughout. If you are a rock fan and you like the music of say ZZTop, Masters Of Reality, Tea Party, Wide Mouth Mason, Cream, Hendrix; in other words, music that has that soulful difference that sets it apart from the crowd, than you may very well love this recording from Tito and Tarantula. This album is the cream of the crop of twentieth century rock.

Muy caliente 20 April 2007
By Cinephiliac - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I first encountered Tito Larriva in David Byrne's 1986 slice of absurdist Texas life "mockumentary" TRUE STORIES. I quickly became enamored of his Tex-Mex rock sound, and have followed his career through his work with the CRUZADOS, as well as his current band - through its various musician change-outs. TARANTISM is Tito & Tarantula's best-selling CD to date and, although it contains only 10 tracks, they are some of the band's best known songs: From the full-throttle, sultry and white-hot "After Dark" (is there a red-blooded male out there who doesn't remember Salma Hayek's "would you like some fries with that shake" table dance in FROM DUSK TILL DAWN) and the frenetic "Angry Cockroaches" (also made famous in the same film), to "Back To The House That Love Built" and "Strange Face Of Love" from the film DESPERADO, Larriva's music has frequently provided the driving musical energy behind Robert Rodriguez's films. (The CD is in fact co-produced by both Larriva and Robert Rodriguez.) This CD represents the best cross-section of the band's early work--before they started to veer off into the musical experimentation of their album LITTLE BITCH.

I am surprised that Larriva hasn't found more of a following in this country. Perhaps it is because his music is hard to categorize. It incorporates elements from classic rock, as well as "Tejano," but doesn't really conform to either. Until the rest of the country catches on, and Tito & Tarantula becomes a household name, they will just have to be our little secret.

Excellente 17 Oct 2006
By G. YEO - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
First came across Tito and Tarantula on Robert Rodriguez's Desperado soundtrack - it kicked [...] and this album is more of the same bluesy rock. Stinging guitar licks and passionate highway rock - very visual, very dramatic, very poetic. Highly recommended...

No frills, straight-ahead rock 22 Jan 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
There's a review from a"shane-o" from florida that makes this comparison: los lobos meet the stray cats. Nothing could be further from the truth. It ain't roots rock, and it certainly isn't rockabilly! I'd have to say its probably more of combination of Tito's last two bands, the CRUZADOS, and the Plugz. This band cranks out some seriously mind-bending rock music on this smokin' debut. Check out Smiling Karen at your local music store's listening station, and get ready. Want a really beautiful yet trippy anthem-like tune? Sweet Cycle is just that: Sweet and melodic, with excellent ambient guitar styles and riffs from Peter. Their show in Seattle last year blew the roof off the venue. Great to see former Boingo drummer Johnny Vatos stickin' it to the skins. This cd's perfect when you're on the road or for serious partying! Also, a great follow-up release: Hungry Sally. Salud to Tito. He's keeping real rock music alive, ese.

Smoking latino guitar work! 1 Mar 1999
By crawfors@rohan.sdsu.edu - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I saw these guys play live at a hole in the wall night club here in SD. I felt like I was on the set of From Dusk till Dawn. Their guitarist sat in a chair barefoot and played faster than lightning (with a nice SRV feel to it). This CD represents that live show well. A must buy...
