A Molotov Cocktail of classical and flamenco-- furious stuff
Carlo Matthews | Been Moving Around | 01/30/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"There's a sense of urgency throughout this album that makes it one of De Lucia's most exhilerating. The effect is achieved by the deft use of percusion and electric bass as well as the intriguing yet cohesive blend of classical and flamenco schools. The music straddles both worlds, giving the songs more suggestiveness and freeedom while at the same time retaining a strong sense of form. De Falla's compositions are tight and fast yet grandiose and ambitious. It's music full of punch and a showcase of sheer relentless inventiveness. Add to this De Lucia's furious playing and one has a hybrid whose influences may be self-evident but whose effect is stunning, to say the least. There's a definite modern sound to this album, although the arrangements themselves are sparse, that gives it a dynamism seldom found in other De Lucia works."
Hot modern flamenco, great percussion & de falla covers
J. Duncan | New York, NY United States | 12/04/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"a very nice surprise that will please both guitar purist and the fan of interesting world music. de lucia's acoustic renditions of manuella de falla's classical pieces accompanied by wood percussion intruments really bears no equal."
Tremoglie Giuliano | 08/21/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"How anyone can give this absolutely classic and definitive work anything less than 5 stars is a mystery to me. There is universal agreement that Paco de Lucia is the world's greatest flamenco guitarist -- yea, verily, the world's greatest guitarist, period. And this masterpiece of rendering Falla's work is flawless and utterly inspired. Falla would have loved this."
