Spin (7/00, p.153) - 8 out of 10 - "...Cuban music that upholds tradition at the same instant it lampoons the overwrought sentimentality of Batista-era balladeering....Just when he's digging a relaxed rumba, [Ribot] kicks out the skronk, sending his rhythm section into a clattering freakout..."Entertainment Weekly (5/12/00, pp.78-9) - "...There's nothing phony about the stellar musicianship on display....Imagine a hipster Buena Vista Social Club at a packed SoHo basement party..." - Rating: B+Q (8/00, p.105) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...It works a treat, Ribot's endlessly inventive fingers using the slinky rhythms like a trampoline to bounce playfully all over the shop....worth it for the scorching 'Baile Baile Baile' alone."CMJ (4/24/00, p.24) - "...Shake-shake-shakes the Afro-Cuban pop....Working vicariously through the apple-eyed spirit [Arsenio] Rodriguez, while bringing more of Ribot's seamless, improvisational style to the cha-cha line....Very entertaining."Down Beat (6/00, p.60) - 5 stars out of 5 - "...[The group] fully hit their stride....It's crazed and concise, a chops disc that banks on songs and it driven by a performance that effectively matches sound and attitude. It's also the first great pop-jazz album of the year..."Mojo (Publisher) (5/00, p.98) - "...Wry pseudo mambos: songs sounding like Arsenio Rodriguez originals put through a psychotic blender....it's not for purists, just for people who like to smile."0.4258116
