    When Los Lobos arrived on the late 1970s Los Angeles punk scene, they seemed out of step with almost every trend imaginable. Dressed like a bunch of middle aged dads at a PTA meeting, they played an utterly unique mixture of 1950s-style rock & roll, country, R&B, and traditional Mexican music, all filtered through the gritty lens of their urban upbringing. Time has proven they were on the right track; EL CANCIONERO MAS Y MAS attempts to cover the group's three decades-plus career in a four disc box set, collecting not only Los Lobos' best work as a band, but significant tracks from the members' many side projects, as well as rarities and B-sides. Los Lobos have always played a dizzying array of disparate styles with equally effortless panache, and this set does a great job revealing why they maintain one of the most loyal fan bases in popular music.

  • Critic Reviews
    Entertainment Weekly (12/1/00, p.96) - "...Feels and sounds as big as America itself..." - Rating: B+
    Q (4/01, p.123) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...Demonstrates that their insanely long career has been memorable for its moderation rather than its heart-stopping highs and lows..."
    Dirty Linen (4-5/01, p.55) - "...Comprehensively brings this consistently prolific band's legacy up to date..."
    Mojo (Publisher) (3/01, p.110) - "...There is so much life, so much of the sheer joy of making music laid forth here, that this set barely seems enough to contain it....the place to celebrate some great American originals."
