Editorial Reviews

The Gotan Project literally took the world by storm in 2003 with its million-selling La Revancha Del Tango. Skillfully mixing the heated passion of tango with the cool insistent beats of dance music, the group kept the best of both genres as it offered up an unheralded fusion. This time around, the production team delves further into the tradition, cutting down on the dub production filigree and overarching electronic programming--now sexy grooves often come on the back of organic beats and an unprocessed sound captured during live studio sessions in Buenos Aires. This new focus is furthered with conventional bandoneon soloing as well as acoustic piano and string section backing. Nonetheless, kids craving to cut a rug will dig "Diferente" and "Notas," while the robust "Amor Porteno" (featuring Calexico) is the group's most muscular tune to date. More skilled than the debut, Lunatico is no sophomore slump, though hardcore house music fans may want to wait for remixes. --Tad Hendrickson

Product Description

Not wanting to replicate what their debut, "La Revancha Del Tango", had achieved musically, the group has a decidedly stronger emphasis on the organic roots of tango on "Lunatico" and utilized a host of local musicians from Buenos Aires; a complete string section, two emcees, a trombonist, and Argentine piano legend and long time Gotan collaborator Gustavo Beytelmann. The result is their most accomplished work yet. "The beats are sparse and liquid, and the transition from Buenos Aires bordello to European dance floor is seamless" - Rolling Stone. "A jiggy melange of tango with a dab of dub" - Entertainment Weekly. " intriguing blend of traditional, passionate tango with cool, contemporary electronica" - LA Times. XL. 2006.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gotan Project's At Its Best April 14, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Fundamentally, a return to Revancha del Tango, yet not quite. Lunatico moves forward like a big city-New York or Buenos Aires-exploring new boundaries but remaining true to its cadences and beats.

Even the Rap in "Mi Confesion" seems fitting, faithful in a way to the melancholy of Tango, also particularly present in "Tango Cancion" and the gorgeous "Celos."

Of all the good and not so good Electro-Tango that has come out in recent years, even Supervielle, Federico Auberle or Bajo Fondo, Gotan Project's remains the most substantial work being done today in "renewing" Tango once more.

The writing is inspired, and Gustavo Beytelman through his piano-and arranging and conducting of all strings-is specially stunning. Precise and economic in his solos but not without his tender side. Buenos Aires music at its best.

Another perfect move has been choosing Cristina Villalongo to lend her voice, never dramatic yet bringing precise nuance and character through her singing.

Other tracks to distinguish are "Amor Porteno," a collaboration with the band Calexico, as well as the Electronica take on "La Viguela" and Ry Cooder's "Paris, Texas" transformed into longings right out of Argentina's folklore.

All in all, a tremendous return to form and a whole new expanse of sounds and evocative possibilities for the New Tango.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heat... by way of the cool. September 12, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I bought their first album, La Revancha del Tango, on a whim when my favorite D.C. haunt, Olssons Books & Records, was playing them over the store's speakers. The store's music buyer, Werner, was always good at recommending music from classic blues to "electronica" and Revancha was haunting. It is *still* growing on me. While I was excited to learn about the new album, I was also a bit wary as Revancha was so very, very good. I am glad to say that Lunatico actually bests the first album. I am fond of thinking of music as venues so consider "Amor Porteño" a quietly intense tango bar, "Differente" its wildly exhilarating opposite, "Notas" your private living room's dance floor (you're embarrassed by how it makes you want to move), and "Celos" that first date cafe with the man you've been dreaming of... And kudos to them for their powerfully poignant "Paris, Texas" with its pounding drums and wrenching piano and accordion sounds. HIGHLY recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Music January 11, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I was so happy that a friend turned me on to Gotan Project a few months before the holidays. I ended up giving Lunatico to several friends and colleagues as gifts for Christmas. They all absolutely love Gotan Project. A really uplifting, energizing and sexy CD!

5.0 out of 5 stars The soundtrack to the end of the world April 12, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I've always thought that, late on the night the world ends, we'll be in a dark milonga watching the dancers dance and listening to the weary yet romantic sound of the tango. On that night, they'll definitely be playing some cuts from this album and I think that the last song of the night, before existence simply ceases, will be Gotan Project's version of Ry Cooder's "Paris, Texas" (from the Wim Wenders movie).

After loving "La Revancha del Tango," but getting a little tired of it over the years, I expected to be disappointed by "Lunatico." It's just the opposite. I just listen to it more and more. If you like the tango sound and you like to listen to artists explore new space with it, this album is definitely for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars exceptional April 15, 2006
Format:Audio CD
after the whole vibe "spicehouse " has created recentlly i must add that this is the cream of the cream in inovating music. i mean the genre "tango" has always been something of a mistery reserved to "wise old men" sort of say. this album transcends all that for the new generation.

the production here is probablly the best i ever seen. there is only 1 track (celio) that sounds like a fill up( well none is perfct). everything else falls in a perfect loop towards reaching an active meditation.this record will not make you fall asleep but brings a lot of emotions.

overall it has an uptempo chill out beat.what stands out is its mediteranian influences compunded on a tango genere.if u do not this band you could mistaken it as a spanish/italian/south american/african or generally european production.

this is great as well for a romantic encounter.any 2 parties involved in a sentimental relationship will find this easy to "open up" while listening to such sound.

i listen to all this band's albums but i found the previous releases experimental at they have polished themseves and got the groove on . vocals are very sensitive and especially fall on at the right time and with the right accent.the lady has a 1920's vibration wich comes wicked and yet sentimentally calculated on this modern acid jazz vibe with its tango specifics

i cant really pick a favourite song(s) but i will try:

-"diferente"- i really love its message

-"mi confesion" is dep chilling

-"amor porteno" is first track with the purpose of chilling you out before starting a jurney of self discoery

-"arrabal" is the point where you grab the partener and do that innovatve tango dance "a la'" pulp fiction style...

Gotan lets it's dub fans down?
Loved La Revancha Del Tango, and love Lunitico just as much (and Federico Abulele too!!). Yes, it's a little different from the first, but it's still awesome. Go ahead and give it a shot.
