"From listening to this CD once through as soon as I bought it, I found three VERY likeable danceable tunes. Ole, Flamenco and Cumbaya. Surveying the rest of the album I found more subtle, yet still enjoyable and still danceable songs that made Azucar Moreno famous to begin with. The voices of these two women are pretty much what makes the music so powerful for me. Soft as silk sometimes, yet sometime harsh as flint. More than the music or vocalics involved, I found that the meaning and amount of expression were also very very engrossing. This album had many songs about enjoying song and dance and life in general. And that is what I certainly did while listening to this compilation. I hope they don't stop anytime soon. They have amazing amounts of energy life within them."

"This is the first Azucar Moreno album I bought, and after buying four others, this is still the best (Amen comes close). Hugely danceable, excellent production, inventive arrangements. Wonderful flamenco guitar and strings. "Flamenco" is the standout highlight for me, but all the tracks are very strong. "Mecachis", "Ole" and "No Pretendaras" come close. Even "Comeme la Piel", which another reviewer commented in, burrows into your sub-concious with some delicious rhythm tracks. We have had this album on auto-repeat on long car journeys and it keeps everyone in a great mood for hours."
One of the best latin CD's...

"The Salazar Sisters follow-up album to their multi-platinum selling "Esclava de tu piel" was titled "Ole." Many people thought that they wouldn't be capable of matching such success and categorized them as plastic longshots that only used their image to sell cd's...They were proved wrong!
In 1998, two years after the release of "Esclava DTP",they released their master piece "OLE". This CD can be judged as SERIOUS WORK from its cover and even more after listening to the opening track. Unlike previous albums from AM, this one featured all original songs specially made for them. All the songs were wonderfully arranged from beginning to end with a showcase of enjoyable latin rythms and lyrics with uplifting feelings. The "heavy hitters" from this album were "Ole" and "Mecachis"in summer 1998 and were remixed by well known Pablo Flores, however they are just an opening to an enjoyable journey to a latin dream. I would even dare to say it is one of the best latin cd's out there.
Its been four years since I purchased this CD and it never fails to uplift me every time I feel down...Love it..."
