AllMusic Review by

Continuing in a tradition of brilliant album titles, El Vez diversifies even more on his third full-length studio album and gets more political. The song titles say it all: "Say it Loud! I'm Brown and I'm Proud," "Mexican-American Trilogy," and "J.C. Si Lowrider Superstar." The last song somehow segues Bowie's "Rock & Roll Suicide" into Presley's late 1960s cheese-pop hit, "If I Can Dream." El Vez is certainly one of the most unique talents to emerge in the 1990s.
