Their musical style is mainly considered Latina, Pop, Rock, Rock en Español, Indie, Latin, Latin Pop and latin alternative. "La Ingrata" shows off Ruben's vocal abilities, the bands energy and an homage to the local music styles of Mexico (in this case Norteño).

The band changed its name to Café Tacvba (changing the u for a v) in order to avoid legal issues with the coffee shop. Alberto Domínguez: there's minimal info on this composer, who wrote "Perfidia" for Glenn Miller. Even if you've never been to Mexico (like me), once you hear Café Tacuba, you can tell that they seem to be, as some say, from everywhere. It is their experimental side, their fun side, the local and the global all gathered in a compact little album that possibly (and hopefully) has shaken the musical realm of the West. Axis is An obscure band from the north of Mexico who play a type of prog rock. How come it should've shaken the ground of the West?

El guitarrista piensa en esta idea después de publicar su libro “Los Desesperados”, una novela que gira en torno a una banda de rock ficticia. Una de las obras que piensa escribir la contará en papel cuando tenga 70 años: la de Café Tacuba, el grupo con el que ha estado más de 20 años. As they performed in various venues around Mexico City, they were discovered by Argentinian music producer Gustavo Santaolalla, who at the time was producing albums for leading bands of the burgeoning Rock en Español movement of the time. Add to this a bit of punk and there's Café Tacuba... No, wait, a bit of punk, a bit of funk and there's Café Tacuba... No, no, let's take it from the beginning. Hay mucho amor, mucho odio, lealtad, traiciones, compañerismo, hay grandes pequeños dramas”, comentó. Me fuerzo a escribir. Many fans have said (maybe not so objectively) that from this point on that they were the best band in the world solely because of this album. Two years later he got bored and changed it to "Cosme" for the release of "Re". It simply is Café Tacuba going through and even blending several genres such as speed metal, ranchero and who knows what. Compared to the second version of the song, Café Tacuba's version still comes off as quite poppy, with a feel that there are new kids in the hood. To imagine that it took four of their absent five years to make this album shows how much they seem to enjoy crafting good music. As they are now, in the shape of a double album, they make the perfect couple. The group experimented with many different musical styles, from punk and ska, to electronica and hip hop, to regional Mexican varieties such norteño, bolero, and ranchera. Uno de esos cuentos es "Rockstar" y en él se puso como personaje. In 1996, the group released Avalancha de Éxitos, meaning "Avalanche of Hits", a covers album in which they performed songs by other Spanish-speaking artists. Song they covered: "Alarmala de tos." Since then, he has changed his name for every album and world tour. Sino (from 2007) is, compared to Cuatro Caminos, the band's music stripped to its underwear.

Descubrí mundos nuevos, entonces soñé siempre con ser escritor o estar relacionado con la parte de contar historias. The band also performed on the main stage at Lollapalooza that summer. It could've been a real international hit, who knows, but it is an album easily to overlook in the shadows of Café Tacubas later works, like Re. He designed the covers for his brother's albums "Oso" and "Lejos". It still leaves the question of what Café Tacuba wanted to say with this album. Café Tacuba se formó en 1989 y es considerado uno de los mejores grupos de rock de Hispanoamérica.
