AllMusic Review by

On its fifth album, this energetic Chicago-based septet again hits a bullseye with a mixed bag of rancheras, cumbias, and polkas all played with the band's trademark unbridled enthusiasm. The title track blends its uptempo dance beat with extrovert percussion, while the horns and confident harmonies of "Te Uevas Mi Vida" cement the set's uplifting message of good times. Though the band excels at ballads, as evidenced by the corrido "El Morro de Tepehuanes," the high-energy polka is a form they are rapidly making their own, with "El Teniente," with its peppy vocal asides and booming brass, a particular highlight. Passionate and danceable, Brazeros' music delivers on its promise of dynamic entertainment time and again.
