"What can I say? The Romeros are breathtaking! I am a beginning classical guitar student and hearing this family play is so inspiring. I found out from Christopher Parkening's Guitar Method book (a book I recommend to beginning classical guitar students) they were one of his very first guitar teachers.I especially enjoy hearing the Romeros' full versions of some of the songs I'm learning to play. For example, I'm currently learning a very simplified arrangement of Isaac Albeniz' composition "Sevilla". But with this CD I get to hear the REAL version. The version Albeniz himself composed as played by Angel Romero. The difference is like night and day and Angel really brings out the soulful depth in this song. Someday I too hope to be good enough to play the original.There were so many songs on this CD I recognized from my beginning classical guitar books. Of course, the versions on the CD are the originals and the arrangements I'm learning are highly simplified for beginners. Nonetheless these songs most beginning classical guitarists learn are here in their full complex glory. I recognized Lagrima, Noche en Malaga, Sevilla, Sevillanas and the 3 Bach songs all from my beginning guitar books. The Romeros definitely are inspiration to all classical guitarists."

"While Los Romeros had a valid claim to the record's title, and their playing was generally flawless, I found this disk to be a disappointing collection. I thought I was going to hear the unique sound of a four high caliber guitarists playing as a quartet. Its actually a collection of solos, some duets, with only a couple pieces where its evident 3 or more are playing. And, while the performances were technically excellent, most seemed somewhat flat and lacked the personality expected of the classical guitar. I should have read the track listing more carefully; many of the pieces are 16th and early 17th century pre-Baroque works that, even for a classical guitar student like me, become tedious. The saving grace is the Mercury "Living Presence" mastered recording, reknown for acoustic quality. On a good audio system, the Romeros are right there in the listening room with you."

"The Romeros proove why they have been on top of the classical guitar world for so long. Wonderful musicianship all the way around."
