AllMusic Review by

Solido follows its first 2001 Grammy-nominated effort with this entry in the Grammy stakes, an accomplished collection of impeccably arranged Norteno songs. The title track is an up-tempo ballad, while "Nada Me Explique Mas" is a more stately but no less percussive affair, complete with the band's trademark tight harmonies.

The rest of the album consists of fare such as the cumbia of "Te Amo, Te Extrano," ranchera stylings in the form of "Con Un Segundo" and the more sensual bolero rhythms of "Pobre Diablo," all of which Solido performs in a traditional style that eschews contemporary flourishes in favor of more conventional arrangements. NADIE COMO TU is a solid effort that, while breaking no new ground for the aptly named quintet, should serve to consolidate its growing reputation as a reliable, workmanlike Norteno outfit.
