Biography

Los Lobos were already East L.A. neighborhood legends, Sunset Strip regulars and a Grammy Award winning band (Best Mexican-American/Tejano Music Performance) by the time they recorded their major label debut How Will The Wolf Survive? in 1984.
Although the album’s name and title song were inspired by a National Geographic article about real life wolves in the wild, the ... Read more in Amazon's Los Lobos Store

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

After 25 years together as a band, you'd expect Los Lobos to be spent creatively. Not so, though this East L.A. institution has settled into a perhaps too-comfortable groove with its past couple of albums. No longer the studio experimentalists of Kiko (still the group's best album), nor the Mexican roots-music purists of La Pistola y El Corazon, the band now offers a reliable mix of styles on each album--a smooth concoction that is equal parts roots-rock, blues, R&B, and Latin dance music. Although paired with new producer John Leckie (Radiohead, XTC), the band doesn't venture into much new sonic territory with Good Morning Aztlán. The most distinctive tracks are the three Latin-spiked numbers--in particular "Malaqúe," which merges vera cruzano harp with what sounds like Brazilian carnival rhythms--and a pair of gorgeous, '70s-inflected soul songs, "Hearts of Stone" and "The Word." Overall, Good Morning Aztlán is a good album but not a great one, at least by the band's lofty standards. --Keith Moerer

4.0 out of 5 stars Best since Kiko June 4, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Just bought this CD. A second disc is included with two ordinary live performances of Can't Stop the Rain and Colossal Head (both songs originally on Colossal Head). Despite what the packaging says, the Enhanced CD material is on the first disc and not on the second. This includes a promotional video for the new record with interviews from each band member.
As for the 12 songs on the main disc. Let's start with the negatives first. There is a little bit of filler though a lot less than on the previous record. Neither, "Get to This" (comparable to the lesser material on "This Time") or "Maria Christina" (seems like Cesar Rosas has done this song already) are stellar.
That being said ... "Done Gone Blue", "Hearts of Stone", "Luz de Mi Vida", and "Good Morning Aztlan" are terrific and are equal to their best work. Other standouts include "Tony Y Maria" and "What in the World". Surprisingly, the Rosas written songs are on par with the Hidalgo contributions. That's not always the case. So ... taken as a whole this is a really, really good Los Lobos record.
Many will be happy to find out that this record has little of the muddiness of the three Froom and Blake produced efforts though I liked most of the material on those records. The lyrics are also a little more direct on this record.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bringing It All Back Together August 18, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Los Lobos has been a favorite of mine since they put out that great little EP "...And A Time To Dance". The mix of hard-driving roots rock and Mexican folk music was a spicy mix that was hard to resist. However, in my opinion, in recent years they have drifted too much away from those roots into experimental music since the release of the magnificent "La Pistola Y El Corazon".
Now they are back with a vengeance. Good Morning Aztlan mixes rock, soul and Spanish with wild abandon. My favorite cuts are the title song, Malaque, Maria Christina, and the soul-saturated The Word. Done Gone Blue really rocks and Luz De Me Vida is a catchy song with a clever intermixture of Spanish and English lyrics. There is nothing bad here. But perhaps as some reviewers suggest, the lyrics of Get To This are kind of cheesy though the music is good.
I haven't had a chance to sample the computerized portion of the CD but the music already merits 5 stars even without it. Hats off to Los Lobos. With the issue of Good Morning Aztlan, they are reaching deep into their past and bringing it all back together again.

5.0 out of 5 stars I agree - best since Kiko June 15, 2002
Format:Audio CD
They sound so confident on this record. The songs just slam. The recording quality is pristine and perfect. The music jumps at you and floats through the air. It's nice to hear them rock out heavy on a few tunes again, too. It's also nice to see the disc sitting in the Top-25 on Amazon. This is one of the 5 best bands of the last 15 years. Anyone who only knows them because of "La Bamba" needs to run to the store immediately and pick up "By The Light Of The Moon", "How Will The Wolf Survive", and "Kiko" for starters and realize what they have been missing. I can't wait to see these guys at Milwaukee's Summerfest in a few weeks.

Los Lobos and producer John Leckie click on this one.
Good Morning Aztlan will get compared to the masterful breakthrough Kiko. Less of a studio work than Kiko, this album seems to celebrate all that came before it, even revisits characters from previous records, yet it shows Los Lobos more mature, in the here-and-now, and in peak form.
It's raunchy, understated, the politics are personal,it's funky, soulful, bluesy. There's 50s influences, shades of War, Curtis Mayfield, Tito Puente, Traffic, Hendrix. Stax-Volt, Bob Marley. Previous avante garde and lo-fi leanings (a la Latin Playboys, Colosal Head) are played down, but show up here and there and keep things sonically interesting.
Even with all these elements, it's flows, it's tight, focused, and feels like an extremely mature effort from a group STILL in it's prime after 25 years recording and having a good time.
The songwriting is top notch, the vocals are more expressive than ever. Steve Berlin's Hammond organ adds vibe to go along with the sax and an incredible flute break on "Round and Round."
David Hidalgo is an extremely underated guitarist and all around musician. Cesar Rosas is solid and more soulful than ever.
I can't wait to hear some of these songs performed live. As good as this record is, you HAVE TO see these guys live.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of their best! November 22, 2002
By R. Dunn
Format:Audio CD
Good Morning Aztlan is Los Lobos' best release since 'Kiko', if not their best EVER. The fusion of so many styles has never sounded so natural and self-assured. 'Done Gone Blue' and the title track are full throttle rockers that shows the Lobos' have not lost their drive in more than 25 years together. The dreamy 'Malaque' shows the experimental side of the 'Kiko'/Mitchell Froom albums in one of the most complex yet beautiful songs they've ever recorded.
After having his tracks hidden away on the last few albums, Cesar Rosas' presence shines brightly on 'Aztlan'. 'Maria Christina's samba influences are sizzling, but the inspired Spanglish 'Luz De Mi Vida' is the centerpiece of the album-- mournful yet a celebration of style and lingo.
Producer John Leckie brings out the best in this band of expert roots musicians. He doesn't smother them in audio effects like in their previous two albums produced by the talented but overwhelming Mitchell Froom. For a change, these guys sound like they're having fun again in the studio.
'Aztlan' takes a worthy place beside 'Kiko' and 'Will the Wolf Survive' as one of Los Lobos' best.
