About the Album

There seems to have been an endless supply of greatest hits collections by norteño icons Los Tigres del Norte in the past year. But this latest one may be the most compelling.

This disc, 20 Norteñas Famosas, includes some of Los Tigres' greatest, and most legendary hits, including "La Jaula de Oro" and the irresistible corrido "La Banda del Carro Rojo." The CD/DVD version also includes four videos, an interview and an extensive bio on its DVD disc.

The collection begins, deliberately so, with "La Jaula de Oro," an insightful look at the situation faced by illegal immigrants who remain years in the United States but cannot legalize their status. Their kids aren't citizens either, but they no longer speak Spanish nor do they want to return to Mexico. Los Tigres describe this limbo as a golden cage whose comforts are no less stifling.

Los Tigres are fond of delivering social commentary and they do so judiciously in these tracks. "Por Que Me Quite el Vicio," for example, is a spoken narrative over guitar and accordion accompaniment that tells the story of a heavy drinker and the family problems it brings on. "Los Hijos de Hernández" dwells on the duality of immigrants who serve in the U.S. army and, yet, still face discrimination at border crossings.

While other tracks are romantic ("Carta Abierta" and "Rosita de Olvido") some, like Ya Te Velé, are slyly humorous. But the most appealing tracks here are the countless corridos, from narco corridos like "La Banda del Carro Rojo" to tragic tales like "Pedro y Pablo" and "El Tahur," about a gambler who bets his wife during the game. These are riveting tales, full of narrative, special effects, and, above all, concisely and clearly told. That's the magic of Los Tigres.

In "El Tahur," the tone is dispassionate, and chilling, shots included, as the gambler shoots his wife, then himself, rather than giving her up after losing the game. And of course, there's "La Banda del Carro Rojo," whose upbeat, polka tempo belies the bloodshed to come.

20 Norteñas Famosas ends with "La Puerta Negra," a heartache song, performed with plaintive emotion, ranchera style, and punctuated by wailing clarinet. It's the track that aptly sums up Los Tigres' versatility. (Note: The album was released in two versions: a CD/DVD combo and as a CD only.)
