Who says comfortable rockers can't write convincingly about working stiffs from their old hoods? That doesn't seem to be an issue for Los Lobos on Tin Can Trust: The barrio strivers throughout Trust are as vivid now as they were decades ago. Unfortunately, the characters are linked to somewhat generic roadhouse blues, even when it's spiced with norteño and Colombian cumbia. It's as if the band is content to just kick that tin can a little bit further down the road. B
