Cigala & Tango ~ Diego el Cigala
Cigala & Tango ~ Diego el Cigala
3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed feelings, 22 Oct 2013
I love Diego el Cigala's collaboration with Bebo Valdes and was excited by the prospect of a similar project with some of the great names in contemporary tango. There are some outstanding performances on this live recording, but there are some tracks I find difficult to listen to, namely those with the great guitarist Juanjo Dominguez who has one string (the D string maybe?) excruciatingly out of tune. Maybe non-guitarists wouldn't mind but I can't listen without wincing!

1.0 out of 5 stars uncomfortable, 23 Oct 2010
I bought this product after emailing Scholl for advice about the best insoles for metatarsal pain. They recommended these instead of an insole. Just opened them and they are impossible to wear - they're very hard and press into the sole of your feet, like walking on a stone. I get no relief from them at all. I think they could probably cause other problems if I persisted in wearing them I appreciate there may be conditions that will be relieved by them but my advice would be to avoid them unless recommended by someone qualified.
