Nuclear Valdez (Many critics commented that this album sounded more like a third or fourth release for such a young band because it showed their ability to arrange and produce beyond the basic guitar, bass and drum roots of their first album. More experimental and diverse, this album highlighted the cultural and musical diversity of the band and showed off the percussive and rhythmic melodies of their Latin roots. The single "Dance Where The Bullets Fly", aired on a season finale of the popular television show, Melrose Place and was the bands foray to commercial Top 40 radio).
