Released: Jan 2012
When you’ve been in the game for nearly 50 years, you’ve earned the right to rest on your laurels a bit, to even phone in your umpteenth album. But La Arrolladora -- the other offshoot of the old Banda El Limon founded by a clarinetist (not be confused with La Original Banda el Limon) -- does no such thing. Instead, Irreversible works a smooth, sweet, horn-tastic groove crafted out of confident tubas, passionate vocals and buttery clarinets. Bits of pop, pinches of salsa, mellow waltzes and, oh yeah, the smash hit slow jam “Llamada de Mi Ex” show off just how much these guys still got it.
