The soundtrack to Desperado (sequel to El Mariachi -- artist/musician hero in black sports guitar case full of weapons) desperately sought to capture the style of Pulp Fiction, with its Latin-flavored, Tarantino-meets-Morricone mood. It partially succeeded, integrating movie dialogue with choice contributions from Los Lobos and uncentered offshoot band Latin Playboys and vintage instrumental kickers courtesy of Link Wray's "Jack the Ripper" and the obscure "Pass the Hatchet" by Roger the Gypsies. Salma Hayek's steaming "Quedate Aqui" and Dire Straits' "Six Blade Knife" stay in character, but the mood is lost to bombastic blues rockers by Tito (Larriva of The Cruzados) and Tarantula, Carlos Santana, and one uncharacteristic Los Lobos miscue (the dire "Let Love Reign"). ~ Roch Parisien, Rovi
