This album is quite possibly made up of outtakes from the first album by Grupo El Amor. The drumming and bass playing are highly distinctive in El Amor and if this is another group playing in imitation, they are every bit as good--while also featuring chiming guitars plus Beatles influenced singing with a distinctive Monterrey accent.

Several songs here are arranged rather similarly to songs actually used on the first El Amor album, however (assuming this to be El Amor), there is more of founding member Oscar Vallejo's keyboards on these tracks in general than most of that record.

There are at least three truly excellent tunes here, "Tu Sonrisa," which reminds me of the songwriting from El Amor's third LP "Love," "Tengo Miedo," and the final track, "Derrotado," which is one of the most mid 60's Beatle-esque tracks I've heard in quite some time. Not a perfect album (there are a couple of songs that sound unfinished), but full of good to great music throughout.
