    It's great to see a band do their homework by laboring to deliver on high expectations. The first Mariachi El Bronx record set the bar very high. This album not only reaches the same heights, it exceeds them. This time the band goes beyond mariachi music, and all types of Mexican music are here. Of course, in English. The quality of the whole package is phenomenal. The other niceIt's great to see a band do their homework by laboring to deliver on high expectations.

The other nice thing is that this record is accessible to any audience: you can put it on for your kids, yourself, your parents or grandparents. They will all enjoy it. Expand

    Purists may, of course, have their qualms, but it would be hard to deny the combination of reverence, proficiency, and sheer exuberance in evidence here -- indeed, it's difficult to imagine any serious limits of this band's appeal.

    With Mariachi El Bronx II, the Mexican wing of The Bronx have moved swiftly to reinforce their authenticity. [Nov. 2011, p. 136]

    It can be no surprise that the group's second effort in this style is a triumph of both authenticity and quality, of fine songs and tasteful playing. [3 Sep 2011, p.51]
