Coming off a Grammy win for Best Banda Album 2011 for Todo Depende de Tí, La Arrolladora Banda el Limón returned with Irreversible... 2012, an effort that finds them comfortable at the top, but not complacent. All the heart poured into the post-broken relationship hit "Llamada de Mi Ex" is a sure sign of that, while the follow-up single "No Me Vengas a Decir" is a break-up in progress, still simmering with as much passion as pain. Three songs from "cantautor del pueblo" Espinoza Paz round out the album, along with some dance numbers and rancheros, making for another strong entry in the group's catalog, which has been on the upswing since signing with the Disa label in 2002. ~ David Jeffries
