If you already know Los Tigres, you already know that you either do or don't like them. I know of urban sophisticates from either side of the US/Mexican border who know enough of them to know they don't like them. My introduction to Los Tigres has been the title track of this album, which seemed to get hourly play on Fresno-area ranchera stations hourly for the latter half of 2000. Some seem to get down on the content of the lyrics, which aren't always complementry to the powers that be on either side of the US/Mexican border. The comparison that seems to work for me is that ranchera, tejano, and norteño are Mexican country and western music, and the best comparison I can come up with for these guys is Merle Haggard. Some people give Merle a great deal of credit for artistic integrity of a raw type, but few would consider him an intellectual. The mural that forms the cover of this album is interesting, "over the top", and invokes in me a certain nostalgia for murals created at the Iowa State University library in the 1930s by the WPA. One element is a sign saying "necesito mi libertad" being held by John F. Kennedy, César Chávez, Martin Luther King, Jr., Benito Juárez, Miguel Hidalgo, Pancho Villa, Sor Jauna Inez de la Cruz, and Doña Ortiz de Domíngez. On the other hand, "Necisito mi Libertad", while a nice slow, catchy waltz, is your basic "I'm leavin' ya, woman" song. So, if you've got'cha a college education and a start at being bilingual but you can still smile at "I've got Friends in Low Places", you might like this. If you wouldn't be caught dead listening to anything less than Miles Davis or Yo-Yo Ma, or if you're a Texas Republican, then click "next".

For more than years than I'd like to admit I've listened to one norteno band and that would be Los Tigres from you know where. I figure you might as well go with the best in a genre even if it is not your "everyday " music. That said I have always enjoyed the messages conveyed as these Mexicanos speak about the trials and tribulations of the immigrant experience. It is a music that crosses the border back and forth, played in old pick up trucks in the remotest of areas and new shiny trucks barreling down the dusty roads south of the Rio Bravo and in suv's on the highways an biways in El Norte(The North). This album , like many of their others, cuts through the pc world like a hot knife through mantequilla(butter) revealing the injustices, inequality and racism that is part of everyday existence in America, or more properly said, the United States. Just yesterday I was told to "go back to where you came from"(I was born in the US) as the coward locked his pretty mercedes benz after an arguement at a gas station. The music of Los Tigres hits on these daily occurences and much more. One of their favorite topics is the narco traficante(drug smuggler) whether he is an "innocent mule" or the big time boys who control politicians, cops and the local scene with the threat of death. Some of their songs have been banned. The music featured on this disc is like a freeze frame that shifts from song to song, suddenly opening the aperature to reveal a bigger picture. There is a certain innocence in spite of the harshness of the topics. This is down home music away from home.Read more ›

This CD isn't their greatest piece of work, but it still has some good moments on it. All in all, Los Tigres have an extraordinary music archive. They serve as great role models through their lyrics to many Mexican immigrants who go through day to day struggles which Los Tigres articulate in many of their albums.
In a response to reviewer above, You don't need to have a "high" education level to be critical of your government...The reason farm laborers' wages don't go up is because illegal Mexican workers can't complain about their exploitation and agribusiness owners like cheap labor (it's why they're so rich). Are you sure about the whole Border Patrol staffing shortage? I'm sure there are lots of racist ranchers to help. If all countries have the right to protect their borders, why doesn't the US protect it's Canadian border in the same way it does its southern nieghbor's border? Speaking the truth is a foreign concept to some like the above reviewer.

Otra ves los Tigres an comprobado porque son los #1 de la musica Mexicana. Yo tengo casi toda la collection de los Tigres del norte I siempre me sorprenden con algo nuevo todas las veses. Siempre han estado en el gusto de la gente y siempre lo estaran. This is one of their best productions yet I feel good when I see a new cd because I know they have done something new. I hope that this is helpful to anyone who is going to buy this cd. I really think if you like los Tigeres del norte you will be love this cd.

Once again, our idols - Los Tigres Del Norte continue to provide us with their unique style. They delight us with their rendition of "Me Declaro Culpable", my favorite song on this CD; "Al Mil Por Uno"; "Tu, Yo, y la Luna"; and "Necesito mi Libertad". Not only do I recommend this to other fans of Los Tigres, but also to those fans of the Norteno music. Los Tigres have greatly deserved winning the distinguishing music awards; but many of these music award committees have failed to recognize that there are many different genres of music in the Hispanic culture. As fans, we believe that this CD deserves an award. We hope that the the boards of the various prevailing music awards realize that apples and oranges cannot be compared; i.e., do not compare the Norteno music with Tejano, Ranchero, Mariachi, Salsa, etc. Norteno music is very unique and Los Tigres continue to prove this.
