Some new things, but not a break through yet

"Armik takes some new approach in this album. I heard a bit world element and jazzy background. But I felt his guitar style, although still with excellent talent, has still not try new things so it sound not different than many of his previous works. Almost all songs in this album is very active and lively, so pick this if you're looking for a music with uplifting mood. I have to mention that the last song, Mi Guitarra, is the one of the most amazing solo I ever heard, extremely fast Paco De Lucia-like playing. Armik is one of the few guitarist I know who can play very fast and still retain beautiful melody and emotions in the music.
One thing I have to criticize is that this album might be a bit compressed. It sound much louder than my other cds. Maybe a bit in your face. For audiophiles too much compression can lead to a lost of dynamic, the threshold between the most silent noise and loudlest noise is closer so the all the the sound have the same loudness."
Nice background music

"I must admit that I was slightly disappointed in this CD. I bought it based upon some songs i heard on radio, which were very nice...But the CD as a whole becomes a little tedious to listen to, with the same type of sound repeated over and over. I don't like the fakish strings/brass ensemble used as accompaniment - sounds like cheap synth sounds to me, the guitaring/song structures are very nice though and enjoyable to listen to. Were I to make a buying decision knowing what I know now, I would have bought just a few individual mp3's from this CD...Notably Passion, Magico, Mystical breezes, Mi Guitarra..."
The best Armik album

"I can't believe anyone has reviewed this remarkable work. I have 5-6 CDs by Armik but this one is definitely the best one. Treasures, Passion, Timeless, Moonrise, Together, and Blue Paradise are my favorites. It makes you feel exotic, seriously."
