stood at a stylistic crossroads when this album was recorded, caught between their hard-fought status as a premier dance band and the desire to expand their base with ballads. Thanks to first-rate material, the presence of new vocalist Juan Tavares
, and director Virgilio Canales'
managed to sound equally expert at both styles. "Como Duele" ("How It Hurts"), the group's breakthrough soft-rock hit, builds to an infectious chorus that gave the group's romantic side instant credibility. Other ballads with irresistibly hummable melodies include "Cuándo Yo Te Quiero Hablar" ("When I Want to Talk to You") and "Se Me Olvidó Olvidarte" ("I Forgot to Forget You"). Even better, the group still plays a mean cumbia, proving it can jam with the best of them on "No Puede Ser" ("It Can't Be"), written by Bronco vocalist José Guadalupe Esparza
, and the instrumental "La Tablita." A snapshot of the group at the top of its game.
