Saltimbanco is one of the first Cirque du Soleil CDs I ever owned. It is also one of my favorites! I use it for dance, aerobics, and just for plain relaxing. It's an excellent collection of 'jungle-like' sounding music! I love the birds in the background of Norweg and the drums and bottle music sounds are extremely unique.
The only two songs on the CD I did not like were Amazonia and Saltimbanco itself! They were long, loud, and repetitious.
However, an especial favorite next to Pokinoi, Norweg, and Kumbalawe is Rideau! It is incredibly out of place amidst the 'South American jungle' on the CD but the piano music and 'clown talk' always grabs my attention.
If you are new to the 'Cirque du Soleil' craze and looking for a CD to start off your 'Cirque' collection-I would highly recommend Saltimbanco. It gives you a lasting taste of their many flavors of different kinds of music!
