CD Reviews

Bonus tracks save this album
Aluminium Horse | Detroit, MI USA | 12/27/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Of the original tracks on this album, the title track is the only one worth listening to; the rest are lackluster arrangements with the same simplistic beat that seem to be aimed at a mainstream audience, and not Afro-Latin aficionados. I would give this album two stars, but the six bonus tracks are so good, they make this disc worth the $18 I paid for it. These six tracks have the authentic Afro-Latin sound that put New Yorican bands on the map. So go ahead and buy it, skip to track 13, and press play."
SWINGERS WILL DIG IT!
Enfant Terrible | San Francisco | 01/30/2008

"WATERMELON MAN IS THE GREATEST DANCE RECORD OF ALL TIME!

PAY NO MIND TO THE MUSICOLOGY MAJORS REVIEW,
HE IS ONE OF THOSE JAZZ GEAR-HEAD TYPES,
AND WOULD NOT KNOW A SWINGIN BEAT IF IT BIT
HIM IN THE BEHIND! BUT IF YOU LIKE MUSIC
THAT MOVES YOUR FEET, AND LIKE TO GET ALL CRAZY
ON THE DANCE FLOOR, THAN YOU ARE AT THE RIGHT PLACE,
TO LAUNCH INTO SPACE, FROM THE FIRST TRACK
TO THE LAST, AND ALL POINTS IN BETWEEN,
THIS CD IS THE MOST!
