Editorial Reviews

Los Lobos is celebrating the 20th anniversary of their seminal album Kiko with the release of Kiko 20th Anniversary Edition on CD. The Kiko 20th Anniversary Edition is newly remastered, and features bonus material including demo versions of album tracks and live recordings, and new liner notes written by Los Angeles journalist and longtime friend of the band, Luis Torres.

Released in 1992, Kiko was embraced by fans and hailed by critics as the band s defining moment, the album that put Los Lobos back on the innovation track. Kiko was produced by Mitchell Froom, who received a Grammy nomination for Producer of the Year for his work on the album, and who had previously collaborated with the band on La Bamba. Dubbed one of the albums of the decade by The Wall Street Journal, "the album of the year" by the Los Angeles Times and the Chicago Tribune, and one of "The Essential Recordings of the '90s" by Rolling Stone, Los Lobos also took home an MTV Music Video Award for Breakthrough Video for "Kiko and the Lavender Moon" in 1993.

I have nearly every legitimate Los Lobos recording and have to rate this particular one as quite possibly their best; at least in their top three. It is difficult to pick a fave disc because they all have individual qualities; it is like trying to pick your favorite child. This embodies the essence of the wolf boyz with elements of roots rock, tinged with strong rhythm and blues flavors, psychedelic experimental colorful tones intertwined with folkloric Mexican rhythms and all brought together by the smoky vocals of Cesar Rosas or David Hidalgo. If this were the Beatles this might be the "White Album" or "Sergeant Pepper." The music is a lush tapestry of Americana that features a sort of southwestern country music flare. The instrumental "Arizona Skies" pretty much captures that feeling of southwest country music complete with a mixing of Latin percussion sounds and banjo. This combination of instruments might seem at odds but on the contrary it sounds perfectly harmonious. The spectacular "Wicked Rain" is a biting piece of music that demonstrates the ease with which the wolf boyz can capture the gritty roots of rock 'n roll. When the guitars blend with the drums it is like thunder and lightning falling from the sky. There are many cool songs on this classic wolf boyz disc but of special note is the stripped down "Just a Man" that has a New Orleans joyful funeral march feeling with some guitar licks reminiscent of the best blues musicians. Other faves include "Saint Behind the Glass" that is a John Lennonesque tune that features a Veracruz harp that gives it a huapango meets the Beatles sound." Rio de Tenampa" is the only song in Spanish only and fits into the Mexican folkloric niche.Read more ›

Its hard to say that any album could be the quintessential Los Lobos Album. They have so many different aspects and nuances, it would be impossible to capture them in one album. Kiko comes pretty close to capturing the Lobos' essence though. Songs like Dream In Blue, Angels With Dirty Faces, & Peace showcase the basic Los Lobos "East LA Roots Rock" sound. One of my favorites, Saint Behind The Glass, is a nod to traditional Mexican Music while still maintaining approachability to the non-Latino listener. Rio de Tenampa showcases the band's ability to seamlessly meld Mexican and Country sounds together in one unique package. Every song on here is written and played with great depth and feeling, but none more than the melancholy When The Circus Comes, which I find so emotionally stirring. While this CD has a certain Hispanic flavor, it is a great introductory album to a band that appeals to lovers of all different genres of music including, Latin, Country, Blues, Rock and more!

In 1992 I had all the old 'lobos' stuff when KIKO came out: But hey I am Mexican American I am supposed to listen to them. But this CD changed my mind about the group in general this CD solidified that LOS LOBOS aren't a Latino only band, They are musicians equal to anyone one out there. So now when I get the chance I spread the word about these musicians because they are not our giant prized Latino band anymore they are for EVERYONE! BEST SELECTIONS:WAKE UP DOLORES, ARIZONA SKIES, SHORTSIDE OF NOTHING, WHISKEY TRAIL, REVA'S HOUSE, DREAM IN BLUE AND KIKO AND THE LAVENDOR MOON.

1. "Wake up Dolores"

2. "Kiko and the Lavender Moon"

3. "Saint Behind the Glass"

Not only are these three of the greatest Los Lobos songs ever, these are three of the greatest songs ever, period. And that is not to dismiss the rest of the album, which is strong as well. This is the most unique album that this great band made. Get it!

I've got a half dozen of these guys' albums, most of which are great in their own right, but this is hands down, their absolute best. It got all kinds of accolades when it came out back in 1992. Sometimes, critics go goo-goo-ga-ga over some record, and later you wonder why. That's not the case here. This album has stood the test of time.

They're doing this album live in its entirety in a few cities right now, but there's a chance they'll expand the tour. Not to be missed.

This is one of those recordings that transcends top ten lists and sets prominently on my rankings of albums that truly matter. Not for the listener who wants quick answers, Los Lobos incorporates a surreal, yet understandable mix of America in each song. It's a masterpiece that requires listening to again and again. Don't worry, all of the thier pioneering East LA sound is in here. But they enhance and layer a whole new essence to KIKO. It shouts "american sound" in a way matched by few other recordings of the 1990's.

Not to simply toss my name into the deluge of praise for this record, but this album truly deserves all the credit it gets. It was a total new direction for Los Lobos, with the encouragement of their producer/engineer team, Mitchell Froom and Tchad Blake. This record is dense, soaked in overdubs, carefully arranged and on the whole much more impressionistic than the band's work previous to this. They wrote a terrific set of songs, mostly gems.
The layers of guitar, keyboards and synthesizers give this record a dreamy feel, compared to the band's earlier, tougher stuff. The strongest songs are truly helped by this new approach: Angels With Dirty Faces and Saint Behind the Glass for example. Other songs are marred by the production, however -- Wicked Rain and That Train Don't Stop Here (the grittier Rosas' only two contributions) could do with a stripping down, but even the straight-ahead rock songs triumph in this context.
Best tunes: Wake Up Delores / Angels With Dirty Faces / That Train Don't Stop Here / Saint Behind the Glass / When the Circus Comes / Arizona Skies / Two Janes / Whiskey Trail.
