  1. All of Tin Can's shifting tempos make you feel like you're getting a new song each time, but really, you've heard it all before.
  2. When Los Lobos hook up with songwriters like ex-Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter, things start to go downhill in a hurry.
  3. Tin Can Trust stands as a solid piece of work from the band. [Summer 2010, p.88]

    While initial listens don't suggest a classic like Kiko, one gets a feeling that this as a work that will reveal layers over time. [Sep 2010, p.104]
  5. With its combination of acoustic rock, Spanish music, and mystical balladry, the album traverses all the styles Los Lobos has explored over the last 30 years-with a blues instrumental and a Grateful Dead cover perplexingly thrown in for good measure.
