Falta Amor (in English: Love Is Lacking) is the first studio album (fourth overall) under the WEA Latina label, by Latin American Mexican rock band Maná. After being unhappy with the direction Polygram was taking them, they released this album in 1990, but did not become a hit until the following year. This album gained commercial success once Maná's first hit single, "Rayando El Sol" hit radio stations. Other songs that gained critical acclaim were: "Buscándola" and "Perdido En Un Barco". They began to tour, performing more than 250 times in Mexico, and abroad in Peru, Ecuador, and Colombia.
