Some good traditional accordion-based Tejano music from the king of the genre. The songs here don't stray far from one another and the basic sound for the style, but that tends to help the album as a whole in its coherence. Here, Flaco Jimenez is in his element, pumping out bouncing waltz and polka one after another, along with the basic song formats. It's dance music that's being put out here, and some quite good dance music at that. For someone who isn't acquainted with Tejano accordion music, this album would probably make a decent introduction, as a relatively standard and bland album in comparison to many others. For old fans of the style, this album might prove a bit unadventurous, but worth a listen for the sake of hearing Jimenez on the accordion in any capacity.
