Besos De Fuego by Alacranes Musical
Released: Dec 2011
Label: UMLE - Disa
The busy, buzzing energy that enlivens Alacranes' latest is exciting to hear, as this is the group's first album since conflict led to rumors of a permanent breakup. The duranguense mega-stars have apparently licked their wounds, however, because Besos sounds tightly executed and perhaps even more delightfully frenetic than ever. The "scorpions" scuttle from galloping polkas to pleading R&B vocals, from crisp, almost hip-hop-esque beats to at least one rocker ballad ("Te Busque") that could be from those other Scorpions' oeuvre. And synth-tuba oom-pahs and pop-friendly hooks anchor it all.
