AllMusic Review by

Never mind the matching cowboy hats and monochromatic dress shirts, Grupo Montez de Durango turn out traditional norteño without the slightest trace of pop gloss or commercial pretense. On Borron y Cuenta Nueva, Grupo Montez ply their specialty: rancheras and corridos, with the occasional cumbia and polka thrown in for good measure. There isn't a synthesizer or contemporary production flourish anywhere on the disc to detract from the simple, authentic sound of horns and acoustic guitars.
