AllMusic Review by

Los Originales de San Juan's debut album for EMI Latin is an excellent set of prohibited corridos -- that is, they're songs about taboo subjects or violent tales. On Cantina de mi Barrio, the quartet plays corridos, cumbias and love ballads with energy and style, resulting in a first-rate album that captures the group's essence, as well as the essence of corridos.
