What the hell happened?

"I have been an avid Oscar Lopez fan for years and own all of his Narada studio albums. My Destiny is by far the worst one. Being a composer/flamenco student myself, I looked to Oscar Lopez, Armik & Strunz & Farrah as mentors in the art. All of Oscar's previous Narada releases are a must have. Heat, Seduction and Armando's Fire contain truely magnificent compostions. My Destiny has only 3 tracks worth listening to:Trk. 4 - My Destiny - elegant intro followed by soulful melody.
Trk.11 - Emotions - relaxing rhythm
Trk.14 - Changes - faster paced piece"
A disappointment....the first 3 albums are far superior!

"Oscar's playing is great, but this release lacks the wonderful compositions that made the first 3 Cd's some of my favorites.

This recording is the same musical ideas and techniques that he played on his earlier albums, but the tunes are not as creative.

It is mostly boring "vamps" (repetitive figures), with only a few good tunes mixed in.

The resulting album is uneven, and doesn't "gel" as a whole.

On the first 3 CD's, the tunes, musical ideas, technique, and groove "all came together" in a fantastic manner!

I hope Oscar will do better next time!"
A real pleaser for nuevo flamenco fans

"Oscar Lopez's "Mi Destino" was mostly a hit at home here. Our resident guitar fan grabbed it out of my hands and ran to put it on. "Ottmar Liebert on steroids!" we shouted in eerie unison.

The steroids calm down about track 3, and the album is about 30% not-so-good Latin wedding band vamping but there is quite a bit of listenable music to enjoy. While "Seduction" is Lopez's mega-hit album, fans will surely find some treats here. "What's not to like here!" purred the guitar fan to me. I like it too--it's a keeper. Just beware, that not every song is terrific. The guitar fan liked all of it; I didn't care for the galloping wedding ballroom sound in some of the cuts but I liked a good portion of the rest."
