Historias Que Contar, yet another first-rate album by Los Tigres del Norte, emphasizes the norteño group's strengths, presenting a bounty of corridos (most notably "Señor Locutor") as well as the occasional ballad ("Me Haces Falta"), duet ("Que Te Parece"), and cumbia ("No Diet"). Los Idolos del Pueblo perform songs written by some of the best in their field, including Manuel Eduardo Toscano, Paulino Vargas, Juan Villarreal, and Pablo Castro. In sum, you get the best of the best here: the most renowned act in norteño performing songs by some of the style's most gifted writers. Granted, there's not much to differentiate Historias Que Contar from countless other Los Tigres del Norte albums. Nonetheless, it's easy to be satisfied by such an excellent all-around effort by one of the hardest-working bands out there, without question -- a band that has been at it for decades and one that continues to please its fan base year after year, album after album.
