If you're not accustomed to Juana Molina's otherworldly, electro-folk musings, be patient. The Argentinean singer's artful approach to music may initially be off-putting to listeners who like their world music bright and bubbly, simple and shiny. Molina's Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic album!
I heard a brief review and snippets from this album on NPR and was very intrigued--enough to pick it up on Amazon.I wanted to pick it up that day, but I couldn't find it elsewhere.It was worth the wait!Haunting, melodic, lots of different influences, and infinitely listenable.At the top of my current playlist.I have sent it out as a must have to several friends who have all thanked me for the recommendation.Now, I am going to check out her other albums.

4-0 out of 5 stars Canciones sin coros
On the surface, any similarities between what is commonly and reductively termed "folk" music (i.e., anything song-based and acoustic guitar-driven) and "electronica" (formless composition, laptops, synths, beats, bloops, etc.) seem tangential at best. Those who scoff at the notion of "folktronica" (or at least the term) have been given plenty of fodder over the last decade to justify their scorn. I'm thinking of the practice of gussying up already-finished acoustic guitar-driven songs with current-sounding electronic beats and hastily packaging them for public consumption.
5-0 out of 5 stars Juana's Most Mysterious
Juana Molina has been putting quiet Folktronica jewels for a while now. Not renouncing her Argentinean moods, Molina chooses here to explore wilder shores of Folk, somewhat reminiscent of Animal Collective, or Devendra Banhart in subdued moments.

5-0 out of 5 stars New Tango
Tango: Zero Hour was the very first tango recording/CD I had ever heard. A friend of mine loaned it to me, not ever telling me exactly what Tango was- all I knew to think of was the dancers with the roses between their teeth, where the dancing was more dramatic than the music... So, my first mistake: having never heard tango. My second? Listening to it late at night in the dark. Music had never rocked my world quite like this... It was the most intense experience I had ever had with music. I was shocked. Wide-eyed. Taken aback. The version I had in my hands was the original with the liner notes, not the new shiny one that I now own (and that you can now buy), and the prose written on the card inside was enough to rip me in half without having ever heard the music. Tango: Zero Hour is not for the faint at heart. It is not for the light enthusiast. As the liner notes so eloquently said: "And suffer, Motherf*****. This is the Tango."

5-0 out of 5 stars Tango evolved to its most abstract and profound expression
Im ashamed to say I began listening to Piazzola at my mid thirties... well, better late than never... Im not a music critic, but all I can say is that Tango has a higher dimmension where it becomes universal and mayble the category of jazz (higher jazz that is) is best to classify it.
5-0 out of 5 stars A must
This is music to breathe and dream to. Piazolla at his best is probably the most enchanting and transcendental. It takes a Master Extraordinaire to make music like this, Piazolla's recordings only get better with age and never outdated because it is made up of the spirit and passions of a life lived richly. The Melancholy laments of the Bandoneon is truly one of the most haunting, nostalgic most beautiful musical Innovations ever made and noone interprets the manic poetry of it like Piazolla. I can't say much more then what the others have said here but this belongs in every serious music afficianado's collection. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Un disco delicioso.
Tres Cosas es exquisito desde el minuto cero, las guitarras lo llevan a uno flotando en el aire, y la voz de Juana, suave y m�stica, trasporta. Reci�n ahora le est�n dando un poco de pelota en Argentina, ya que desde "Juana y sus hermanas" hasta "segundo" la gente le di� la espalda y ella se fu� a buscar comprensi�n a otro lado.
5-0 out of 5 stars lilting?
I don't know what the lyrics mean because I don't speak the language but Juana Molina playing in a room is like lighting a smudge, it fills the room and pushes away a days lament and lets your positive thoughts float.

5-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful from start to finish, a must have!
When I heard the track 'Tres Cosas' on radio one night I knew I had to get the album, and it's quickly turned into one of my favourites - Juana Molina's airy voice floats through a set of mellow and hypnotic tracks that flow perfectly from one to the next. It may create a more subdued mood compared to her album 'Segundo' but in my opinion 'Tres Cosas' is miles ahead of that one - it's more subtle and refined production lends it a warm, enveloping ambience - something that can be enjoyed more and more with each listen, even if you can't understand the lyrics! ...

Editorial Review

Juana Molina set aside the budding musical career she'd pursued since childhood to become one of TV's most acclaimed comedians in her native Argentina. Her original muse may have been denied for seven years, but never forgotten; indeed, Molina has managed something of an unexpected musical delight here. Her breathy, gentle vocals haunt unusual song structures and the album's quiet, playful production sense like some restless ghost, wandering a sonic landscape that's as electro as it is Latin. That pan-cultural, less-is-more sense is rare on any collection, let alone on a sophomore album (Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Female wisdom strikes again
This girl just makes mad every time i listen to her. Mad in a good sense, in a sense of dancing in the double moonlight barefoot, praying outloud to the gods of potions not to be drunk. To describe this music? It reminds me the little electronic whisper of Stereolab (especially Dots and Loops or Cache Coeur Naif with Mouse on Mars) or even Coco Rosie (or early Antenna) and then all the acoustic emotions of Vashti Bunyan as if she had holidays in Argentina, somewhere in Pampas, maybe with Sandy Denny by her side, making out for the pure joy of a psychadelic prevert man. A masterpiece of melody and enlightment, and in spanish (for those who not understand her, she sings pure, natural things and emotions, there it is, Vashti Bunyan again). Have fun, i'm having!

4-0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly addictive
If you only listen for 10 seconds or so, Juana's Segundo would seem to be songs from yet another whispery waif, this time in Spanish.
5-0 out of 5 stars A sleepy voice with an awakening effect
This is an album that I can't stoplistening. It brought back to my memory my childhood playgruond with the song "Que lluvia" which makes reference to a popular song in Latin America. I think Juana Molina mixed the sounds and subjects of the songs in a way so strange but effective that the whole album is like a single song with multiple faces. The lyrics remembered me those short japanese poems that reveal to you a big reflection with just a few words. ... Read more

I gave it four stars to encourage those who like to sit and listen to fine orchestras. This CD may be great for dancing if you are in the clsss with those who danced with the stars. My partner and I are early 80s and dance almost everything else. Then we decided to learn Tango. This album doesn't work for us.

I just recently went to Peru and Bolivia for a month, and this soundtrack was on my iPod. I'm so happy it was on there.
5-0 out of 5 stars Very much Music ! ...melodic and passionate (more below)
This is indeed a great effort by this very talented composer. The music never gets boring, it's always shifting gears, which it's not surprising , since it is -after all- the original Soundtrack for the equally original movie. At times becomes similar to middle eastern pieces, at others undoubtedly South-American. This is a classic example of what one might call 'evolutionary' music which by no means should be confused with a revolutionary kind. Tune your ear, earn some peace for yourself and if you can use your HEADPHONES for a better effect.

Piazzola must be the devil.... cause he certainly captured the soul (of tango, that is!)5-0 out of 5 stars Simply the BEST for the Piazzolla neophyte!
I have more than ten Piazzolla CDs and this is my favorite.It's actually the first one of his that I ever bought, and I think that this is probably the best CD that a beginner to Piazzolla and Modern Argentine Tango could buy.It has a generous sampling of the several hundred songs that Astor Piazzolla wrote in his life, and it consists mainly of live recordings, which adds to the intensity of each piece.Interestingly enough, there are nearly 200 CDs of Piazzolla music (if not more), and even the songs in the ones recorded by Piazzolla himself vary significantly from album to album.This one, however, is a real joy and will get anyone's toes tapping.

5-0 out of 5 stars Bravo Maestro!!
Oh dear God, how to describe the music that came out of this album?Maybe we should make an exception and allow a six star rating in this case. Astor Piazzolla is for me the best composer of the 20th century and one of the best of all time.The way he can make music dance in you head and trigger emotions from deep within you is stunning.It is impossible to describe the way he puts music together into some of the most powerful music ever heard and at the same time doing it in a way tango had never been done before. Maestro Piazzolla completely changed tango into something new, something some people don't even consider tango anymore.He'll shred your soul and make you lose all hope in your life and suddenly fill you with hope and a sense of awe.Every person who take music seriously and can appreciate art must own something by Astor Piazzolla; and feel the blessing of immersing in its brilliance. ...

Editorial Review

Gustavo Santaolalla is a talented multi-instrumentalist from Argentina who has been extremely involved in bringing new sounds to an age-old culture. Playing a variety of stringed instruments including the guitar, the guitarron, the charango, and the ronroco, Santaolalla bridges the gap between traditional musics and forward-thinking compositions. He reveals an unusually progressive vision filled with cascades of chiming sounds and the understated influences of Japan, Africa, and Eastern Europe, as well as Latin America. Accompanied by his associate Anibal Kerpel on vibraphone and melodia, Santaolalla has made an instrumental album of intense passion and evocative songwriting. Gustavo's rapid picking and constant strumming of strings provide a solid foundation for his melodic innovations as clusters of notes rise majestically and then quietly fall away. Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars IF THERE'S AN ALBUM MADE IN HEAVEN, IT'S SURELY RONROCO
The title of this review says it all. This album is absolute heaven for one's mind, body and, most importantly soul. It is a heavenly melem for all of your heartaches, soothing your wounds and renewing you from the inside. Gustavo's music is like nothing's Ive ever heard before! Every time I listen to his albums, I listen to them from a new perspective and cannot get bored with one song or the other. It is inspiring in so many ways. I recommend it to everyone who is experiencing life from the inside, inspired by it in its every aspect. THIS ALBUM CHANGES LIVES.

I would recommend this CD even if you have gotten the Motorcycle Diaries soundtrack. It contains the tracks that make this work complete, wholesome.
5-0 out of 5 stars Spread the word.
Like several reviewers, I first heard of Gustavo Santaolalla via Michael Mann's film 'The Outsider' which made expressive use of the track `Iguazu'.This album (from which 'Iguazu' is taken) is an work of stunning beauty.All the tracks are slow, haunting guitar-driven mood pieces composed almost totally in minor keys.I was expecting `Iguazu' to be the highlight but there are many tracks that are equally exquisite.I recommend this album unreservedly to anyone with an ear for a beautiful melody and a romantic soul - believe me, you will not stop playing this.Quite outstanding. ...

Narcotango es tal vez el mejor trabajo de la explosi�n que conjunt� tango y electr�nica y que tuvo en Gotan Project uno de sus m�s claros exponentes.

4-0 out of 5 stars for lovers of liquid tango
This is great modern tango for lovers of liquid tango - new tango with an eclectic edge. I love dancing to almost every track and if only I could find enough great partners out there I'd be dancing non-stop as there's so much potential to create fantastic dances in response to it. However, if you're a non-dancer this is still a great CD with wonderful tracks that will be great backdrops for any laid-back social gathering or to chill out with a coffee on a lazy Sunday morning.

4-0 out of 5 stars Newest Wave in Tango
Once thought by many to be a dying art form, tango shows remarkable resilience as its newest banner is being unfurled by young Argentines who have discovered and embraced the music as their own. Some diehards may find it hard to accept, but the only way that tango can survive as a focal point of Argentine culture is through continuous evolution. If one accepts tango only as it used to be, then it becomes reduced to a mere curiosity and tourist attraction. Innovative,once controversial but now beloved artists like Astor Piazzolla, Osvaldo Berlingieri, and Roberto Goyeneche led the vanguard of a new way of tango expression in the decades following the Golden Era; today artists like Carlos Libedinsky and American Glover Gill take up where they left off.

5-0 out of 5 stars Sublime Hispanic Experience
If you haven't heard Mercedes Sosa's song, there are some tracks on this compile that will convert you to fandom.This Argentinian woman, whose mixed descenet seems to have supplied her with all the good singing genes, was born in 1935.She has the most marvellous voice, fresh as the dawn and as crystal clear.Particularly moving is 'Gracias a la Vida' (more famously sung by Joan Baez, but Sosa's version is divine).I love this CD and it can lift me out of the doldrums in a wink.If you buy this, maybe also get the 2001 CD of 'Missa Criolla' as the Sosa version is fabulous.Her voice is mellow, but timeless, young-sounding and pure without affectation.

Editorial Review

The dates and facts surrounding the birth of Carlos Gardel,even his real name and nationality, are still argued about--more than60 years after his death in a plane crash. But his place as thegreatest singer in the history of tango is indisputable. Gardel notonly nearly singlehandedly defined the tango-cancion (sung tango) andset the standards of interpretation. For many, he embodied the veryspirit of tango--urbane yet streetwise, romantic but also tough,sensual but oh-so-cool. This collection, smartly selected andreasonably improved aurally, offers ample proof. North Americanaudiences may recognize songs such as El Dia Que Me Quieras (sung byLuis Miguel, Julio Iglesias), Mi Buenos Aires Querido (Iglesias) andPor Una Cabeza (soundtrack Read more

There 's a famous Argentine aforism:"Gardel is like the good wine; everydays sings still better".

Yes, the recordings here are core treasures of Tango.But the audio processing causes there to be resonances at certain midrange frequencies that are harsh and irritating.Better sound, and twice the tracks for 1/3 more, can be found in "Lo Mejor de lo Mejor" (as it is listed on Amazon --- the CD actually is called "Carlos Gardel 40 Temas Originales").

The popularity of tango comes and goes, but the "verticalexpression of horizontal desire" has remained synonymous with passion,unrequited love, and nostalgia for more than a century. Popularized byRudolph Valentino andCarlos Gardel,and more recently by Madonna andJulio Iglesias, and often celebrated byHollywood and Broadway, the tango has been reinterpreted continuouslywith less fanfare by old and young musicians in Buenos Aires andbeyond.

" In actuality, it is an anthology of danceable tango music with representation various periods of the 20th Century.It is compelling music.My wife wanted to dance in with me in the kitchen when she first heard �Luz Verde�, a milonga by Luis Villasboas y su Orquesta T�pica.The names of the performers are known to all tangeros, and include the great musicians in a range that includes Carlos Gardel, Anibal Troilo, Astor Piazzola, Osvaldo Pugliese, and the contemporary group Trio Pantango.A variety of styles of tango is presented, from the traditional Argentine tangos well suitable for dancing in close embrace to peppy milongas, a candomb�, and an tango vals (tango waltz).Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for listening or dancing
This is a great album for listening and for dancing. My wife and I play it regularly for background music as well as for practicing the tango.

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't bother
If you want a real tango, get a CD from Argentina or anything by Astor Piazzolla. This is a real waste.

4-0 out of 5 stars Heavily Orchestrated Tango Music
This CD was made for dancing. It is heavily orchestrated and so loses some of the South American flavor one associates with tangoes.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Pure fire Schifrin, a registered marca for action in the movies!

5-0 out of 5 stars Music to remember McQueen by.
Yes, this is the theme music you will be thinking of everytime you see McQueen up on the silver screen. Even when he is kissing Natalie Wood in "Love With A Proper Stranger" you'll be asking yourself when he will pull out his pistol or ride off in his 1968 Ford Mustang.
3-0 out of 5 stars The same problems facing every other Bullitt recording.
Did Lalo Schifrin incinerate the original score to Bullitt? Because that's the only way I can explain the lack of a true to the film version of this soundtrack. Don't get me wrong, both this CD and the 12-track Warner Bros. release are exciting jazzy arrangements, but they are no closer to being the original Bullitt score than a high school marching band.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Musicals/Love Sotries ever
The first time I ever saw this film I was 7 years of age.Today I am 45.It created such an impact on me, that I have been searching for the Music/Movie for a while.I do have the LP, but unfortunately it is a bit hard to hear with the scratches and so forth.
3-0 out of 5 stars Romantic
I bought this CD for my lady friend. I haven't seen the movie yet, but she is a big fan. I might rate this CD higher if I knew what they were singing about. Even in this "highlights" CD, the music is mostly singing conversation, like in an opera. The singers never combine in harmonies, though, so it isn't real opera. At times, the singing crystalizes into two powerful melodies which were remade as "I Will Wait for You" and "Watch What Happens." Since they are blended in, it is a little difficult to extract these songs as stand-alones.

5-0 out of 5 stars Catherine or Danielle?
Beautiful film.But for the folks who thought Catherine Deneuve sang in the film: it was the heavenly voice of Danielle Licari, the popular French singer of the time.It's hard to find any recording by Danielle for sale now. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best pices of music
Borges its a great writer, and so when it comes to mix the emotion of literature in the field of music, piazzolla its a virtuoso, the complete record its great, perfectly balance, emotional, intense, amust for the nu tango lovers

5-0 out of 5 stars The Name Says It All
Tango Apasionado - never has there been a better description of the form in generalic.And the "Cyclical Night" describes the form on this CD in specific. The tango has evolving from a barrio song of bordellos to a sultry dance to, in Piazzolla's hands, an entirely new creature.One only has to see "The Twelve Monkeys" and hear the edgy, nervous sound track to realize how far the Tango has progressed.
5-0 out of 5 stars A true gem.
If you like Astor Piazzolla, you'll love this one. This, along with Buenos Aires Tango: Zero Hour and La Camorra, are Piazzolla's best works (even recognized by the master himself).Read more
