    Tin Can Trust is a masterful album from an undeniably great American band, at the peak of its considerable powerers. [Sep 2010, p.88]
  2. Listening to a Los Lobos album is a bit like walking down the streets of a neighborhood, with a different kind of music spilling out of every doorway.
  3. This is much more about capturing their inimitable onstage chemistry with sizzling fuzz guitar solos, unexpected fusions of styles and the kind of relaxed confidence that only comes with this kind of history.
  4. It's an album about facing limitations, drawing what hope there is from seeing each situation clearly.
  5. The title-track is a prime example of the album's dominant pace: downbeat and sluggish.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.

    When Los Lobos hook up with songwriters like ex-Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter, things start to go downhill on an otherwise solid effort. Otherwise, it is a very enjoyable collection of songs. Expand
