Synopsis

Amazon.com's Best of 99
With their other band Los Lobos, David Hidalgo and Louie Perez helped generate a Latin rock & roll sound specific to East Los Angeles. With Latin Playboys, Hidalgo and Perez--joined by studio maestros Tchad Blake and Mitch Froom--are quickly yanking even the wildest Los Lobos material into an altogether more dynamic, complex realm. Hissing, crackling, lo-fi sonic buzzing--it's all part of Dose, which ranks squarely with the best of 1999 precisely because it stretches in so many directions without losing its heart. --Andrew Bartlett

CD Reviews

Worth a Second Look (Listen)
Caitlin Hughes | Maryland | 11/06/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"On first playing it, I immediately began evaluating my options for getting a refund. Very dischordant, very inconsistent. Not at all what I thought I was getting based on a cool NPR review. Then, a few days later, in a completely different mood, I put it on for a second try. This CD was clearly meant for an enlightened ear. I can't convince anyone else I live with to like it (although the dogs like lemon n' ice, they only tolerate the scratchier tunes, and they run around in a frenzy at the background sounds of sirens -- they're purists and more inclined to celtic, anyway); but I don't care -- I love it. If you bought it, hated it, and still have it, try it again. It's like ethiopian food -- some of it looks familiar, some of it is delicious, but not everyone is going to dare to try it (twice)."
Superb

"not for everybody! DOSE is low tech (in effect at least) and rough around the edges. -Not through lack of attention, but that is what they want you to hear. Its like the interpretation of dreams or memories invoked with the help of sound effects, narration & sound quality that belongs to an earlier age. It works wonderfully well if you let it...."
Addictive, original, possibly the album of the year!

"The music on this album has a fusion of different sounds masterfully combined to create a mindopening musical experience. It combines rock, funk, and latin grooves among other sounds. Unfortunately the Latin playboys along with Los Lobos probably will not be truly appreciated untill they are long gone. They are definately way ahead of the times. You would do yourself a favor to give this album a listen."
