Ill NinoTill Death, La Familia

☆☆☆☆ Okay, here’s the thing: there are moments on this album that manage to elevate the entire proceeding above the weird Slipknot-meets-Santana-meets-Biohazard-meets-Attack!-Attack! mess of the whole thing. But to find the diamonds, you’ve gotta deal with the rough, and songs like the first track are really, really rough (although I do kinda like the congas on some of these tracks… but I am Latino, so your mileage may vary on that one).
