"In case you weren't convinced by the other reviews previously posted, take my word for it--this CD just plain stinks. It sounds like it was recorded through a $3 Radio Shack microphone pointed at a pocket transistor radio. Supposedly Sintesis is one of the top bands in Cuba. Listening to this heinous CD I can't understand why. Had I not paid so much for it, this is the one CD in my collection I'm tempted to use as a drink coaster/frisbee/skeet target. And I'm a borderline insane Silvio Rodriguez fan. In the 80's I actually took a trip to South America mostly just to buy his albums that weren't available in the US. I'd recommend any Silvio CD over this one, even if it were a recording of him making barnyard sounds or performing childrens' songs by cupping his hand under his armpit."
If you are a Silvio fan this is not the CD for you.

"I love Silvio's music and I have almost everything he has made but this is CD was a disappointment. If you are expecting his wonderful music you will see that the only reason it has his name on this label is because it has one song that he wrote and guest sings. It's not worth it! buy any other title. Mano a Mano with Aute is great. Get that one instead."
STOP THIS NOT SYLVIO'S WORK ! READ MY REVIEW FIRST.

"This cd is an insult for Sylvio's fans. Let me explain, I collect Sylvio's work and as soon as I saw this cd without wasting time I bought it. On my way home I could not wait to listen this new cd, to my surprise it was not Sylvio, it was a group called (Synthesis) that if you look carefully at the cd, you will see in small letters this name. Sylvio is a special guest and his intervention in this cd is very minimal. This is a lack of respect to all Sylvio's fans, and to Sylvio. Do not buy this cd unless you listen to it first, because is not even close to Sylvio's style. I was lucky enough that the store in which I bought the cd returned my money. Once again this is a lack of respect and an insult to us (Sylvio's collectors). I advise amazon.com to retire this cd as a work of Syivio in respect to all your customers. We deserve to be well informed."
