EDITORS’ NOTES

Anyone who's seen El Komander push his band toward a boot-stomping peak knows he's a master showman, but he's also one of Mexico's sharpest lyricists, bringing streetwise humor to his portraits of border life. He harnesses that same onstage energy to create the nonstop excitement of La Corona, and even when the pace briefly dips into a more easygoing stroll, he still flashes that biting wit. Boisterous corridos like the smokers' anthem "Quemando Un Gallo" are sure to become singalong party standards, while even a poignant family tale like "El Mexicoamericano" still barrels along with his typical gusto.
