I just got this album in the mail, and I'm looking forward to checking it out. I bought it because I love the Nico Gomez stuff I've heard, and I believe he was involved with this band. It also leads off with the great track 'jungle fever', which was used to great effect during that tense drug scene in the movie 'Boogie Nights'.

Well, having listened to this, I have to report that it's disappointing. Other than 'Stories' and 'Jungle fever', the tracks have a different, slightly more cheesy latin feel to them, and other than a very amusing song about having a party (complete with sound effects of the doorbell ringing etc), there isn't much else to please me...
