AllMusic Review by

Leonardo Gonzales was a founding member of former Grammy winners La Mafia, and thi effort, following on the success of his debut album SIEMPRE CUENTA CONMIGO, should win him and his young band a few more fans. The band's stated influences, which include Stevie Ray Vaughn, ZZ Top, and Van Halen, are not immediately obvious on this outing, and there's enough here to keep Norteno fans more than satisfied.

Gonzales' vocal stylings are never less than intriguing, and if songs such as "Tu Tu Y Solo Tu" and "Lo Mejor Que Yo Tengo" break little new musical or lyrical ground, instead cleaving to the tried and true Norteno style, it's a winning formula. The material and musicianship on offer on RETRO MOMENTOS is always as accomplished as one would expect from a performer of Gonzales' pedigree, adding up to a polished and varied set.
