5.0 out of 5 stars THE OTHER BAND FROM EAST L.A. April 29, 2001
Format:Audio CD
This is the first album by the Blazers, and it still remains my favorite from them. With "Short Fuse", you get everything from blues, to traditional Mexican music, to rock and roll. Just the kind of grabbag I like. Comparisons to Los Lobos I'm sure will linger with this band throughout their career. I'm not so sure this is a bad thing though. Los Lobos is a great band. For Short Fuse, they hired the services of Cesar Rosas from Los Lobos to produce this album. He also lends his hand at acoustic guitar and backing vocals. If there is a Los Lobos album that this comes closest to sounding like, it's "Will The Wolf Survive", which had that raw roots rock sound similar to this one. I think that Cesar Rosas has brought out the best in this band. Like Lobos, they move at ease from doing distinctly American blues, as in the burning title cut "Short Fuse", to some great sweaty rockabilly, as in the catchy opener "Yeah Yeah Yeah". My favorites however, are the 2 traditional Mexican tunes "El Ano Viejo" and "Tiburon Tiburon", both sung in Spanish. Even when Los Lobos went Spanish, they never did it this good. If you went to Tijuana and hooked up electricity to a traditional Mexican band, you might get a little idea of what this sounds like. It's Mexican, but it's also good old rock and roll with a drop dead rhythm section. The Blazers traffic in many styles of music here, and they do them all very well and with a lot of passion. This is some top shelf roots rock.
