Collecting 12 of the biggest Latin rock songs of 2006, 2007 Año de Éxitos Alternativos is a nice mix of alternative rock styles that vary from ska to Gypsy-influenced pop to pure adult rock, while staying very accessible and very fun. Café Tacuba, Sizu Yantra, Molotov, Babasónicos, and Los Enanitos Verdes all have tracks included, as do series favorites La Secta Allstar and Jeremias (both of whom are fine, but neither of whom probably deserves a spot on the album). The only song that doesn't fit that well is Dhira's "Una Familia," which, despite its Spanish title, is sung in a British-accented English. But as an overview of rock en español for the year, 2007 Año de Éxitos Alternativos isn't a bad choice.
