It?d be easy to waste a review listing the musical styles that inhabit this 25-year-old band?s 10th album, so let?s just call it avant-Chicano roots funk. The important thing is that Los Lobos do fusion like nobody else, twisting a tangle of influences into tightly wound explorations of sound and rhythm that are genuinely electric, not just eclectic. Fans of their tamer past work might balk (as some did at their last album, 1996’s ”Colossal Head”), but This Time is well worth the time its rich mixture requires.
