First things first, this is not a bad album. By most standards it is in fact very good.
BUT, if you want to listen to Rodrigo y Gabriela it just doesn't hit the mark. I want to hear the full beauty of their guitar playing and here their playing is totally swamped by an overly dominant orchestra.

I remember a couple of decades ago the Gypsy Kings had the same problem. They had produced a string of wonderful albums and then ran out of ideas, so they decided to re-record the same songs but with an orchestra. It was dross.
This isn't that bad but it is way off their best.

If you like RyG you'll love this album, there are some great takes on existing tracks but with a big band sound to support the great guitar playing. This is music to listen to sitting outside sipping a cold beer/lager. Close your eyes and you really could be in Cuba!!!

Oh, and by the way, don't be put off by those reviewers who moan about there being no new tracks on the album, I don't think it is about new or old tracks it's about how they sound - and boy, do they sound different.

Well worth the purchase.

A great CD especially if you enjoy acoustic guitar, percussion and fast latin american dance rhythms and skilful arrangement and backing from a range of instruments. It reminds me of Manitas de Plata the French flamenco guitarist of the 1960's and 70's and he is still playing and recording.
