My Family (soundtrack) (1995)

EW's GRADE
B

Details Release Date: Apr 25, 1995; Lead Performance: Various Artists; Genre: Soundtracks

Save for Juan Luis Guerra's frantic merengue party-starter ''Guavaberry,'' too many tracks on the soundtrack for My Family feel like historical Aztec field recordings; Mexican rock stars Mana would be more fun on one of their new-wavey hits instead of an ancient Latin ballad. Still, these mambos, bandas, and vocal-group oldies offer a useful introduction to barrio tastes. B
