What a beautiful hybrid

"What a wonderful mixture of flamenco songs made popular by the great Camaron and the strong pulse of Cuban son. I've never heard quite this combination before, but it's perfect. Both musical cultures are respected, while the result is something fresh and exciting. Well worth the trip, whether you're coming from flamenco Spain or son Cuba."
Ick... too much.

"Lead singer's voice is nice, the music is actually beautiful and good... but it's just WAY too much together. By the third song, I was thoroughly irritated. The overly-unnecessary girly background singers just crammed it into the wall and I couldn't bare it anymore. Very strong and classic styles combined harshly. With some thoughtful arranging, I think they could've smoothly blended them together. I love flamenco music--especially sung by strong women's voices, and I grew up with latin music, and it's all a nice idea, but they must've been so in love with this "high concept," it just bashes you over the head without tempering it with a light little kiss. You know, like good jazz. They had to take it further than just a good concept.Sorry to say I was disappointed. I wanted to love it."
