I gave it four stars because it's one of the best electrotango-cds concerning the "electro" and not the "tango" part.
Chicho "Mariano" Frumboli e.g, the famous inventor of a new tango dance style, uses this Cd often in his workshops - and this guy understands a lot about music..
If you want to hear some good electronic tango music start with Gotan (ASIN: B00008NRL8) & Carlos Libedinsky's "Narcotango" (ASIN: B0001WPSBS). "Bajo Fondo Tango Club" (ASIN: B00007M5CO) is also interesting.
If you want to hear a good Piazzolla album: "Tango Oblivion" on the European label Music Club MCCD165 (ASIN: B0000072WS) was the best but it's no longer available. Try "The Essential Tangos" on Manteca (ASIN: B0000AVSXG) instead.
This is not tango music, it is more along the lines of electronica / club music that is inspired by Piazzolla. It has what I consider to be almost a totally European flavor. I do not mean to disparage European music. I lived in Europe for 17 months and had a lot of fun dancing, but the music was not tango or neo-tango. This CD lacks the strong tango dance rhythms. But if you like European-style club music, you may like this CD.
To my mind, the best selections on this disk are Hi Perspective's "El Tango", Alexkid's "Luna," Koop's "Vuelvo al Sur." Those pieces are not, in and of themselves, good reasons for buying this CD. From now on, I will rely on recommendations from Sharna Fabiano's Neo-tango DJ list or Jackie Wong's Neo-tango zone.

Astor Piazzolla's a Genius in this genre, and in this recording outdoes himself. Great Stuff, the Tango - it' s classical, yet modern and somewhat tragic, but always passionate. Read morePublished on July 9, 2013 by joe gonzalez
The Gotan Project brought tango into the modern world (in a huge way), so it only makes sense to go back to one of the foremost practitioners, Astor Piazzolla, who merged the tango... Read morePublished on February 28, 2011 by scoundrel
I know it has nothing to do with Piazzolla's tango, but since its melodies remain there, it's nice to listen. Read morePublished on December 6, 2006 by martýn alexandro
I really liked the Astor Piazzolla Remixed album and to be able to get both together is a really great thing. You can hear the originals and then the electronic take on them. Read morePublished on October 20, 2006 by jto
