14 Songs, 46 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Opening with a triumphant blast of fiery brass—the first of many utterly infectious horn arrangements from leader Sergio Lizárraga—La Mejor Versión De Mí is an album where even tender love songs like “El Color de Tus Ojos” will leave you breathless with their dramatic twists and turns. After decades of putting a slick modern twist on vintage Mexican sounds, Banda Sinaloense MS are still more about cheek-to-cheek intimacy than raucous party tunes, though just try to resist the jumpy cumbia rhythms of hip-shakers like “Levantese Tempranito.”
