Guitarras Magicas Norteñas is a collection of guitar-based norteño music. With a traditional flavor and some excellent playing, this is actually a very impressive display of technical ability combined with good songwriting. Artists like Los Corceles de Sinaloa and El Jefe y los Plebes contribute several tracks that are played with a passion and style that is rarely displayed with this sort of complicated playing. Those unfamiliar with the genre may have a hard time getting into the music, but fans of this style should give this a listen. There is a lot here to like.
