Cumbia con Soul
Released: Jun 2009
Label: WM Mexico
Los Super Reyes' second album sounds like the often tumultuous history of this cumbia boy band that was born of the breakup of Los Kumbia Kings' founders, A.B. Quintanilla and Cruz Martinez. Though the shuffling chugga-chug of the cumbia flows throughout, Cumbia Con Soul almost alternates between flashy, mainstream pop (for instance, "Sin Tu Amor") and more accordion-driven Mexican regional pop (e.g., "Eres"). Los Super Reyes is at their best when its two aesthetics are more seamlessly blended ("Preso") or when things get as dramatic and unpredictable as the group's story (the dubby "Baby").
