"I have reviewed each of these CDs individually, but for the real Piazzolla fan here is a chance to get all three in a box set slightly cheaper than by buying them one at a time. Despite the fact that many of the songs in this group are mere snippets of potentially great songs, there is enough "meat" to warrant purchase of the box. Among the best are the rhythmic El Infierno Tan Temido in its various incarnations, the bandoneon workout on Tangueria, A Intrusa Pt. 1 and 2, and Celos pt. 1 and 2. My favorites are on the Armaguedon CD. Panique au Theatre is a real winner and the vocals on Chanson Pour un Homme Triste are mesmerizing. There isn't much that Piazzolla did that doesn't deserve the highest praise and that includes the priceless tunes offered here. Only the brevity of much of the work takes away from what would otherwise be a five-star effort."
