I have seen Paco live four times over the last 16 years, and each show has been better than the last. He's the only musician I can think of who genuinely gets better with age, not given certain considerations, but in real terms. 'Cositas Buenas' is arguably, well almost certainly, the finest album he has ever released, taking his art to heights that would give the most talented new flamenco pretender vertigo. Interestingly it is eight songs and 38 minutes long, sticking to the time conventions of vinyl, so presumably it is also available in that format for audiophiles and the unavoidably out-of-date. Tracks 1, 3, 5 and 7 are bulerias, the kind of aggressive minor-key flamenco style at which he excels, punctuated by a tango, a tientos and two rumbas for variety. Thankfully there's none of that jazz fusion nonsense he dallied with some years back. The variety and intricacy of this music is stunning and, though there are occasional dips in interest, these are overwhelmingly counterbalanced by guitar passages of such pure beauty and heart-stopping skill that you begin to wonder if Paco is a mere mortal like the rest of us. Don't miss the incredible last two tracks. To sum this album up in one word - wow! Just wow!

To be honest; every album from this artist deserves at least 4 stars in itself; being the 'father' of the new-flamenco-movement, the first flamenco-guitarist playing in the Royal Theatre in Madrid and the best player in the guitar-trio, this is an event, not just a release.
Just like its predecessor 'Luzia' it's very much a return to the flamenco-roots. Personally I still have to get used to the use of the 'choro' (choir-)vocals; the solo-vocals (also by De Lucia himself) are fine and the guitar-playing is of the highest standard. It's hard to name a stand-out track; the bulería are very concentrated and demand attention (but ultimately it's very rewarding and exciting), the rumba is jazzy and almost easy-listening

This is OK. But there are too many bulerias and tangos here for my liking. It cannot be described as a complete album like Sirocco. That one really is a killer! There are plenty of collaborations here - perhaps a few too many vocalists. However, this is still a Paco De Lucía album, and there's plenty to praise here. The melody, the phrasing is all there. Rip roaring bulerías, a playful and wistful tango and dreamy liquid like rumbas. He caps it off with an inspired collaboration with Tomatito and Camaron (RIP) which just blew my mind. In short very good - but incredibly, way short of his best. Check out Sirocco, One Summer Night, Live In America, Almoraima, Fuente Y Caudal, and maybe, perhaps Luzía for his definitive works.

EXCELLENT CD by Paco de Lucia who has sadly left us far too soon. Excellent production values with excellent music. My only criticism - it's too short, especially the final track which could be at least 2 minutes longer, at least. But don't let that stop you buying this fantastic álbum, the penultimate of a genius
