La Muerte del Soplon Review

by AllMusic

One of the most popular and respected acts of the thriving Norteno scene in the Mexico/Texas border region, Los Tigres del Norte reinforce their reputation with 2006's LA MUERTE DEL SOPLON. While many of these songs relate tales of a morbid nature, the music itself is quite lively and energetic, as revealed on the upbeat, accordion-laden title track (which translates as "The Informer's Death") and the jaunty, beat-driven "El Espinazo del Diablo" ("The Devil's Spine"). The juxtaposition is quite effective, and gets to the heart of the band's power.
