Overview

A two-disc anthology of their best work, La Historia confirms Caifanes' status as one of the most influential rock bands to emerge from Mexico. The song selections range all the way back from their 1987 debut to a pair of tracks recorded during an MTV Unplugged appearance in 1994. Ranging from the Cure-like post-punk of "Cuentame Tu Vida" to traditional Mexican folk songs, Caifanes demonstrate a wide-ranging variety. "La Negra Tomasa" meshes reggae and Afro-Cuban beats with new wave guitars, while "Quisiera Ser Alcohol" resembles a jazzy torch song. Even as the band explores different musical styles, they never stray from their gifted musicianship and knack for lovely melodies. Newcomers will be impressed by the band's range and musicianship, and longtime fans who will be just as pleased with the well-chosen song selection. For both groups, La Historia will be a superb selection.
