I don't know much of anything about this style of music, as I said I've never really taken to it before, I'd like to think I have a pretty vast range of taste in music but for some reason or another mariachi has always kinda turned me off. However they seem to really bring something to the table here that I haven't appreciated before. I've been enjoying it the past couple of days and I have no doubt they probably kill it live, it probably won't have a regular re-play value like their other CDs, but I think I'll probably come back to it now and then. So really it's a three star review, but it gets four for simply getting me to think differently about a genre I'd previously shrugged off.
Mariachi just was filled with tradition, the lyric of which was undecipherable because of the language problem, but the musical construction and pathos apparent in the music itself reminded me of the sincerity of the Blues. With Mariachi El Bronx's version the true spirit of Mariachi is now available in its complete form to music lovers who can not speak Spanish. Than you thank you thank you....you have freed an art form and shared it with the English speaking world. I can see this as an educational blow to those who fear cultures that they do not understand, and practice hate as a result. You have brought understanding, the real purposes of musical communication other than just entertainment.
