AllMusic Review by

By the mid-2000s there was no shortage of Duranguense groups cropping up all over (especially in Chicago, where the style originated). Yet when the bands are as fine as Grupo Montéz de Durango, who can complain? Outfitted in white 10-gallon hats and wielding a rousing blend of traditional Mexican folk and merengue rhythms, Grupo Montéz take no prisoners on Agarrese. Tunes such as "El Hijo del Amor" and "El Chivo Pelon" kick up dirt in classic Duranguense style, but Grupo Montéz can lay down a ballad with the best of them, too.
