Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The multi-million selling Gipsy Kings showcase the romantic side of their repertoire with "Cantos de Amor," drawing from their extensive catalogue of albums to date. Many favorite songs including "Un Amor," "Tu Quieres Volver," and "Love and Liberte" are featured, as well as the previously unreleased "Gitano Soy." Gentle but passionate is the tone of these 15 tracks, including several instrumentals, and where the Gipsy Kings may use polished production values, the music of this Gitane gypsy troupe retains the drama and sensuality of their roots. Flamenco style guitars and fervent vocals make this the ideal seductive backdrop, or a backdrop to seduction, understandable across all language and cultural borders. --Derek Rath

This is a fantastic compilation of some of The Gipsy King's most romantic songs. I am not one that by rule likes greatest hits, but in this case, I do. In my opinion, one would have to search far and wide to find music with more passion and emotion. This is from el corazon-the heart. The guitars speak volumes while Nicolas Reyes' one of a kind voice carries us through all the beauty and suffering that has encompassed Flamenco for generations. With this, a suggestion: Grab your lover and some vino, put this CD on and see what develops...I bet it'll be hotter than The Costa Del Sol!
My favorites are: "Un Amor"/"Gitano Soy"/"Love & Liberte"/"Quiero Saber"/"Caminando Por La Calle" (My most cherished of all)/"Trista Pena."
Although I am elated to see Latin music gaining popularity, some of todays stars are pale in comparison to The Gipsy Kings...Adios amigos- Que Dios te bendiga.

This is a nice compilation, and just about due in the US, as Europe already had the Gipsy Kings' Love Songs for a while. ok ok....... if you have everything ever put out by the GK, perhaps this cd may be a bit redundant -- in fact Gitano Soy [Nicolas Reyes is brilliant on this by the way...] is the only "new" song on this CD. However the choices & order of each song were well done... they flow into each other! also, if you listen closely in Mujer, you'll hear a newly added piano part-- to me it lends a nice feminine touch to it. A true fan will not be disappointed--in fact, if you're new to the GK, get this one & work your way backwards~ the journey will be the best of your life! My only complaint.... MORE CANUT! ; )

Despite owning 'The Best of the Gypsy Kings' and 'Tierra Gitana', I liked this CD because it sets a mood. Compilation CDs are never a good idea if you own the majority of the artist's work, but if like me, you only have a couple, then this CD is a very good buy. Whether you are in love, want to be in love, or wish you weren't, there's something for you on this CD. I love the pain expressed in Trista Pena and Gitano Soy.

The Gipsy Kings, who sing mostly in Spanish and apparently live and record in France -- go figure --, are incredibly prolific. Unless one is insatiable for lots of flamenco guitar and gypsy music, the collections, either this one or best of or both, will probably suffice. The disc includes a couple instrumentals and, as the title suggests, all the songs are of love, frequently the leaving kind of love (both leaver -- No Volvere -- and left -- Tu Quieres Volver). My single favorite is the lilting Caminando Por la Calle, love at first beat and some wonderful la-la vocalizing. Other picks: Mi Corazon, Hable Me, Mujer. Some will be interested to know that My Way (A Mi Manera) is better in Spanish, but not by much. Overall, very enjoyable music.

These love songs are sultry and sensuous, passionate and powerful. All tracks are basically traditional gipsy, yet the range of emotions expressed in the songs demonstrates the richness of this musical form. This compendium, which includes some tracks that have already been covered by other artists, may shed some light on the origin of the phrase "Latin lover." The CD is great for anyone interested in exploring the less frantic side of gipsy, or for anyone building a collection of quality international music. You will return to it again and again...

Even if you own all or several of these fantastic artists work....Cantos is a must. Even though most of the songs are not new per say...the way they have been put together set such a beautiful mood. It is truly intoxicating.

This is the first Kings CD I've purchased and I'm very satisfied. Very talented group. I love their version of Sinatra.

This was the first Gipsy Kings my wife and I bought and we really like it. After I read the reviews for this CD versus their others, I thought we had made a mistake and went and bought their "Best of" (which was highly reviewed). We were surprised to find that we liked this one better and didn't want others to be disuaded from buying this very good CD.
