"The two Salazar sisters had released three mediocre albums when they were to represent Spain in the Eurovision Song Contest 1990 with one of that year's most spectacular entries: "Bandido", a flamenco-infused house dance track. Bookmakers put thumbs down on this one, but nevertheless it ended #5, with Germany awarding them the maximum 12 points. "Bandido" really made the two sisters' carreer take off, and also ensured them a following of gay fans all over Europe. The subsequent album features a fair share of dance covers of Latin favorites like Santana's "Oye como va / Guajira", "Ven devórame otra vez", and the tango "Cuando el amor se va", but to me, the originals "Mumaíta", "Noche de abril" and "Canalla" are the most interesting tracks. Listening to this album, 10 years after its release, I must admit its production is not impressive, it really hasn't aged that well, and my rate shouldn't be more than 2½ stars, had that been possible. Azúcar Moreno's subsequent albums have been far better so if you are a fan of their most recent works, you'll probably enjoy this CD, especially because of "Bandido", but you're just as well off getting their greatest hits package "Mucho Azúcar"."
