I think this album is briliant. I'm a big fan of Vicente's and was really happy to see he'd got a new album released. As with previous albums I found this one to be a grower. Like all complex music, you don't warm to it instantly. And I'm not a great fan of Irish folk music, so hearing this for the first time was a bit of a shock. But he, and whoever did the arrangement, have done a great job of weaving together the two styles of music: flamenco and Irish folk. Plus as usual with Vicente there are touches of jazz and pop in places, and even a touch of funk on Cancion de Laura. Vicente's musical composition as usual is outstanding, beutiful melodies, harmonies and exquisite guitar playing. Hard to pick out a top track, but Roma is one that every time I hear it now I'm uplifted to the point of tears. That's how good it is!
