AllMusic Review by

Los Tigres Del Norte are one of the most respected groups in all of Norteno music. They've been at it since the '60s, racking up Grammys and record sales in unprecedented amounts for a group of their genre. As DE PAISANO makes clear, one of the main reasons for Los Tigres' consistent success is that they keep it simple.

Throughout the album, they stick close to their Tex-Mex roots. Accordion, guitar, and emotive vocals are at the heart of their sound. There are no hip electronic enhancements added to their sound, no crossover pop moves like a string section or rock-flavored guitar. Instead, Los Tigres continue to do what they do best on DE PAISANO, and the Norteno audience should be grateful for that fact.
