It's your basic tango

"This is definitely tango, but it tends to become a little monotonous as the CD evolves. It lacks a little more of the tango temperament. A bit dull, but it is tango, nonetheless. And although I missed the classical tango tunes, tango experts may recognise some."
An Well-Rounded Compilation

"The tango enthusiast who seeks only the classical tango orchestra sound is bound to be disappointed with this CD, but if you are a tango lover whose tastes span the years then you should be delighted with this fine compilation of the modern tango sound as I was. It was here that I was introduced to the golden voice of Roberto Goyeneche who, though little known outside his country, is immensely popular within it. He really shines on Ventanita Florida and on Yuyo Verde. Featured here too are many compositions by the great Astor Piazzolla of which Oblivion and Vuelvo al Sur are standouts. There are many non-traditional tango styles to enjoy here, one of the most striking being the guitar-based and very political "Milonga del Tartamundo". Those who understand Spanish will find humorous the musings of the group Mano a Mano as well as the lyrics to Tango-Tango which take a sly swipe at the political state of affairs. The entire CD flows rather smoothly with one style giving way gently to another without any jarring dissonance. There are a couple of classic tangos included with a modern twist that help to make this a well-rounded compilation. I should mention that this CD features few instrumentals so if you do not like your tangos sung, you will probably not like this."
