Review: ‘La Luz del Ritmo’ album by Los Fabulosos Cadillacs

After 25 years and more than a dozen albums, Argentine rockers Los Fabulosos Cadillacs prove they still have what it takes to make you dance. But I can’t help but feel something is missing from the Cadillacs’ latest offering, La Luz del Ritmo. On its own, La Luz stands as a fun mix of genres […]
