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 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 soon.
I can't imagine why. These guys are great.
I know that Tin Can Trust is a CD that I'll listen to constantly. The musicianship is seamless, the lyrics are deep, and raw emotion pulsates just beneath the surface.
My favorite songs are Burn It Down, with its catchy and insistent bass back beat, Jupiter or the Moon, a haunting and wistful love song, and 27 Spanishes, a wry and plaintive history of the new world in eight short verses. But every number takes you away.

Dip into this Trust fund to see what the amigos from East LA have been up to lately. I will admit it took me a couple additional spins to totally get into this one. Read morePublished on December 18, 2012 by Lyle Webster
It's easy to call Los Lobos comfortable, especially here on their latest "Tine Can Trust," though for me, for awhile they seemed to have ducked down a side street and gotten lost. Read morePublished on December 3, 2012 by R. Kesler
This CD is in line with the band's more recent work: boring, lifeless and with not much spirit. The music lags just as their live performances have come to be close to "not just... Read morePublished on May 30, 2012 by Jose A. Rodriguez
