"Rain Dancer" - Magical, Enchanting, Transcendent, Masterful
tomfrompennsylvania | Greater Philadelphia | 02/12/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I'm new to flamenco music, but this is one of the most enthralling and gently moving collections of instrumental music I've ever heard by anybody. I've also heard "Rubia" by the artist, but this one I give a little bit higher ranking. This may be his masterpiece among masterpieces, though I haven't heard others beyond these. Perfect music to motor up or down The Pacific Coast Highway on, or anywhere you want to conjure up a spirit of romance, even in a divine way. Exotic, tasteful, graceful, warm, energizing and calming by turns. A musical love letter! Recommended without reservation. Crying to be heard!"
Wow What A Album

"Wow what a album.When the first album of Armik RAIN DANCER released my friend told me about this album that nobody can strums the guitar like amik i asked him to lend me the cd for few days and he gave me the cd to listen to Armik first album i was thinking that maybe this album will be good or not.Well when i listened to the armik i was not in myself i was somewhere else i was dreaming.FOR ANNETTE the first track of RAIN DANCER was very soft track i was impressed by the first track.And when i listened to the last track of RAIN DANCER that is ZINGARO not me whomever listen to this track will start dancing .I listened to each and every track of RAIN DANCER and they are all awesome. Whenever Armik strums the guitar the birds sat down on the stems of the trees and started listening to the armik the passion.i think armik is great guitarist in the world and i really appreciate him."

"Armik has managed to achieve through this CD what no one else has in contemporary music. He has come up with brilliant tunes. Out of the total of 10 wonderful, sweet, melodious and tuneful tracks, 8 are his originals. I don't think anyone in instrumental music today can hold a candle to Armik's music that is simply unbelievably good. I came across Armik two years back on our local FM station when they were playing his magical track, "For Annette." I hadn't even heard of Armik then. None of his albums were available in my city. Then, about a month back I decided to look for Armik on the Amazon site, and much to my delight, I found him there. I ordered his first album, The Rain Dancer, as it had the For Annette track which was the only one I had heard from Armik. I got my CD in two week's time and, boy, is it worth every red cent of it. All the tracks are so very tuneful instead of boring, slow and out-of-rhythm strumming you get to hear by other guitarists. Even the so-called "legendary" flamenco guitarists are not in Armik's league when it comes to musical talent. All the tracks take you to another world where you are lost in the swinging melodies. Armik seems to be gifted with superhuman fingers. I have the CD now for over two weeks and I have been listening to it for about 8 hours a day. I personally believe that good music is about good tunes mainly and a good tune is the hardest thing to find in contemporary music. All the great, household names of today are basically noise. Even the giants of instrumental music pounding away their dull tones and tunes like Yanni, Kenny G or Robert Miles are flat and bland compared to Armik. I usually listen to music only from the sixties or seventies and only romantic music for that, although I am 25 years of age and 50+ as you might imagine. I consider it the real music. Armik is the only exception from contemporary music I like. In fact, I love his music. I strongly recommend this particular album to all music fans. I think if Armik can get himself on TV and into the top 40s, he would become the new instrumental giant of today. May be, he can repeat history written by Herb Alpert back in the seventies. He has tremendous natural talent. It is not just the guitar-playing skills but the uncanny and rare talent to come up with out-of-this-world tunes. For Annette and Zingaro are in particularly attractive. I recommend this album to all Amazon customers. Don't miss out on the musical genius of today."
