I came late to Los Lobos's previous album "The town and the city" but I was absolutely amazed at how wonderful it was - a true modern rock classic. Four years later this record carries on with a similar layered production, fabulous guitar playing and amazing vocals - even though the lyrics aren't quite as focused and conceptual. Although again the influences are apparent - rock, blues, country, Mexican - like all great bands they have evolved their own unique sound that is pure 'Los Lobos'.

We get off to a great start with "Burn it down" with Susan Tedeschi on back-up vocals, closely followed by the loping blues-groove of "On Main Street". Both these tracks - along with the haunting title track, the rocking instrumental "Do the Murray" and the closing track "27 Spanishes" - have wonderful guitars from David Hidalgo and Cesar Rosas. The band also covers the Grateful Dead's "West L.A. Fadeaway" and 'Dead writer' Robert Hunter shares the writing credits with Cesar Rosas on "All My Bridges Burning". And if you get tired of fabulous bluesy guitars and David Hidalgo's soulful voice then check out the Tex Mex polka of "Mujer Ingrata" and the cumbia swing of `Yo Canto'.

I can't recommend this record highly enough, this is a band who have been playing together for 35 years and are at the very top of their game, effortlessly turning out music of great quality that appeals both to the head and the heart. Although I don't think this is quite as good as "The town and the city" it's not far behind and I would love to see them touring Britain.

It is both entirely appropriate and oddly wonderful that a band which has been together for 26 years should place at the the heart of their new album a brilliant cover of "West LA Fadeaway" by those other Californian "long stayers" namely the Grateful Dead. It is a 7 minute plus funky version of the song somewhat reminiscent of Little Feat and punctuated by blistering guitar solos from the bands stellar guitarist David Hidalgo whose imprint defines this album. This grove is maintained throughout this excellent album and is a tribute to this band from East LA whose playing is as tight as a shark with lock jaw. "Tin can trust" is an album packed with sincerity and remarkable musicianship.

Along with David Hidalgo all the band regulars make full contributions with Cesar Rosas (guitar, vocals), Louie Perez (guitar, drums, vocals), Conrad Lozano (bass, vocals) e and the relatively new boy Steve Berlin (sax, keyboards) demonstrating all the accumulated musical wisdom of a band which has been together since 1973. Opener "Burn it down" is an excellent starter and rolls along nicely until Hidalgo once again turns on the dirty guitar pyrotechnics. Throughout the backing vocals by the American blues singer Susan Tedeschi are beautifully restrained. "Jupiter or the moon" shows the bands strength in depth in terms of songwriting with a slow burning classic that has some echoes of Traffic, seek it out its a great song. "Yo canto" is one of those effortless Mexican songs that the band produces that conjure up images of hot LA nights and too much tequila. "All my bridges burning" is a slow blues pot boiler with a brilliant emotive vocal from Perez.

Another great album from the underrated Los Lobos. Plenty of different styles intelligent lyrics and brilliant musicianship. I rate Colossal Head perhaps a shade higher but only just.

Yet another review that the record compny apparatchiks will label "unhelpful".
Are these really the same band who produced those marvellous albums those years ago. Nothing here has that verve, orginality, enthusiasm, and sheer delightful melody. At worst they sound like a send oup of a bad mariachi band. Even the recording quality is dire - I think an old 45 monophonic on a Dansette would sound better.
Buy their early albums and avoid this tripe.
