Although this quirky radio station with its mad DJ may not be the first choice of gamers below 30, there is nothing better than crusing downtown to any of the red hot mambo tracks included on the CD. Included are such classics as 'Mambo Mucho Mambo' by Machito and the Afro-Cuban Orchestra and 'Super Strut'. As is usual on any of the GTA Vice City compelations, you get a unique cheat code, some very funny DJing by Pepe and a couple of hilarious and frankly bordering on the non - pc adverts to finish off. To avid followers of the GTA series this is the most chilled out compelation on the most accomplished soundtrack of any game to date. To people who have not played the game, however, this is a authentic compelation of all the best latin jazz and salsa from across the world. If you enjoy this album or 80s music especially, i recommend the Fever and Wildstyle CDs. Vive Espantoso!
This is very much different from the other GTA Vice City music albums, as this is not really commercial at all, certainly not stuff you get in the charts on a regular basis. However, this is very much a pearl lurking within an oyster, as this is a wonderful collection of jazz, latino and salsa music. Well, anything with Tito Puente and Beny Moré (two genius musicians) has to be worth something! Seriously, this is very very good for chilling to, and if you love jazz, latino and salsa you will be in heaven on listening to this. Plus "DJ Pepe" is amusing, and the "ads" are just hilarious(as anyone who has played GTA Vice City will tell you)! It's easy to ignore this as it is not what most people will like. Rock and roll this ain't. However, if you have played Vice City and not heard this, believe me you are missing out, this is a gem. As for whether you should buy this, well I would say yes if you like this style, or are open to something different. You will not be disappointed!
C'mon guys. Vice city is all about Medallions the size of hub-caps and enough aftershave to drown a household pet. Let Don Pepe take you down to the barrio and lay some hot cuban/jazz sounds on you. The CD could be seen as a marketing gimmick but any compilation including the giant of cuban bass, Cachao and the late lamented Xavier Cugat has got to be worth the price of entry. As Pepe might say ... Pa Gozar!!
