"My wife loved the movie hence the purchase of the soundtrack. Every other cut is an actual tango but the other stuff is some kind of new wave John Tesh-like dreck."
Rivals the Movie

"I enjoyed the movie, "The Tango Lesson". (If you have not seen it, rush to the video store NOW!!!) Somehow, the soundtrack seems to surpass the movie. Perhaps it's music sans dialogue. The tango collection presented here is NOT the lush classical arrangements currently popular and popularized. They are quirky, many include voice (the idea of a voiceless Tango is relatively new), some incorporate the "dance" sounds of the movie, some are classics - all are outstanding works of art. Additionally, the CD notes are outstanding - almost a novel. This is a real winner!!"
"Music is - at its core - a way of describing silence."

"The Tango Lesson Soundtrack Album is a perfectly balanced blend of very different music genres: on the one hand we have a selection of passionate tango pieces, on the other Ms. Potter's elegantly minimalist compositions... I won't bother describing the first, as the tango classics are familiar enough to all of us, but let me spend a few words on the latter. I think of these tracks as unfolding: they are spacious and ethereal; the sounds seem to form an indistinct melody as they come from different sources on different planes, and yet by doing so they outline a precise dimension. These compositions, I believe, are the musical transposition of Sally at work, of her concentrating to find inspiration, or to understand: it's like information beaming from different directions, comes together at last and makes sense as it is conceptualized. The Album reaches its climax at track number 10, when the beautiful seagull-like cry of Doyna (airport scene) precipitates on you and makes you feel as if your heart is about to implode. The final surprise of Sally Potter singing "I Am You" leaves me satisfied and feeling full every time."
