Corridos y Nortenas is the debut album from Explosion Nortena, a group that have been guided by Mario Quintero, the leader of Los Tucanes. The group plays ballads and corridos in a norteno style; all of the tunes are written by Quintero and Juan Villareal. While a couple of songs fall flat and the group occasionally sounds a little green, by and large the album is a good debut.
