The soundtrack to the Mexican-American epic My Family presents a cross-section of Latin music, ranging from the mambo of Perez Prado and the gritty blues of Los Lobos, to the slick modern pop of Mana and the crooning of Juan Luis Guerra. Consequently, the album isn't that cohesive -- it's unlikely that one person would like every track on the album. Nevertheless, there isn't a weak song on the record, although it's unlikely that a listener who hasn't seen the movie would appreciate every cut, since the end result seems a little schizophrenic.
