CD Reviews

Brilliant (but dated sonically)
Vain Saints | USA | 01/20/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"You won't find too much material from the 80s that isn't dated in its sound, and this is no exception, as it makes heavy use of Simmons Drums, amongst other relics of the period. Also, the sound is more tropical (i.e. Caribbean-flavored as opposed to Cuban-flavored) than the rest of Los Van Van's catalogue (although it's still a definite specimen of Cuban music).

The good news is that if one isn't put off by these things, this record will be an absolute blast. The better news is that even if one IS unduly put off by all this, it should still be great. Every track is a winner; and most are masterpieces (Sandumbera, Titimania, Calla, etc.) Brilliant songs and top-notch musicianship."
