“The Krayolas from San Antonio, Texas have their own distinctive Tex-Mex style. Hardly typical of that genre, what they play is more Mexified rock ‘n’ roll than anything else and this is exemplified on ‘Quiero Ser Tu Novio,’ their Spanish language cover of the Ramones’ ‘I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend’ . . . What work best are unadulterated Mexican-flavored corridos like ‘Twelve Heads in a Bag,’ a cool and understated telling of a grisly drugs cartel massacre. ‘Tony Tormenta’ is another chilling cartel ballad, an affecting song that documents the horror of the internecine drug wars of the Mexican borderland.”
