Unlike other reviewers, I cannot stand to listen to this Cd anymore. Any time I hear a song from this Cd at the club, I have a strong tendency to roll my eyes. I know, so why 4 stars?
Because this Cd is the ultimate party Cd. The ONLY way you could not have heard "Al Son de los Cueros", "Micaela", or "El Pito" is if you've been dancing in a cave. They get played in the club all the time, because the tracks are up-tempo, high energy cuts w/catchy melodies and coros that stay in your head for days. Yes indeed, this cd is very infectious. Guaranteed to get a party started......well, unless you've got a lot of folks like me there.
In fact a lot of Sonora Carruseles Cds are like this one, so much so that this is the only one I would buy. Unfortunately, they have found a "recipe for success" and are scared to break the mold. Every song comes out blasting at the same break-neck speed from beginning to end, and its usually a cover of someone else's song. It would be nice to see them come out with some original stuff!
Anyway, buy it, because everyone needs a copy of this Cd. But be VERY careful about overplaying it.....you'll hate yourself forever if you do!!!

For better or worse my taste in salsa has apparently been shaped by the music played in clubs and sure enough if you go to the clubs, you'll hear these songs over and over and over again. I love them because they have a pronounced beat and are great to dance to. The rhythm and the music moves your body to dance, whether you like it or not. Even those who are new to salsa and are not used to the music and have difficulty hearing the beat and letting their bodies dance will find it easy to move and dance with these songs. The music takes over your body, mind and soul, you just surrender and dance!

This is the best salsa CD I have, and I have a lot of salsa CDs! The music is so infectious-it gets under my skin and make me want to turn up the volume and dance around all day! The best part about Sonora Carruseles is the fact that they play authentically, yet they aren't afraid to sneak in their own twists. I absolutely love this CD-it is a MUST HAVE for anyone who is even remotely interested in Latin music and salsa. BUY IT! you won't regret it!

If you love dancing and listening to Salsa music this is the CD for you. Led by one of Colombia's most exciting and talented band leaders, Diego Gale's arrangements of classic tunes will have you both singing along and dancing all night. You may have heard many of these tunes at clubs and always wondered who did it, and now you know. This is a DO NOT HESITATE to buy choice. Highly Reccomended.

A real scorcher this one! A great collection of some of Sonora Carruseles' hottest stuff. It may be titled heavy salsa but there is nothing heavy about this CD. Your hear it and your feet lead you to the dancefloor. Fast, bubbly, hot salsa that will pick you up no matter how low you feel. One warning: this cd contains more or less the same tracks as the CD "Al Son De Los Cueros", just in a different order.

If you have been looking for a salsa dance c.d that is full of tracks you often hear in clubs, then this is an absolute must! Unlike many other "salsa dance" c.ds that consist of good music but they dont necessarily drag you out of your chair to dance, I defy anyone to keep still listening to this one. It just gets better and better through each track... Superb!

I've been learning Salsa dance for the past year and a half. Naturally, being anxious to buy as many CDs as possible, I've taken chances buying many different "mystery" CDs from different bands/singers. Most of my choices have been decent, but inevitably some bad CDs managed to sneak into my collection. Trust me when I say that this CD is a great choice! My teachers often use songs from this band when conducting lessons here in Tokyo. The students enjoy the music a lot. Another group that I would highly recommend is Grupo Niche, yet another great band from Colombia. Have fun and I'll see you on the dancefloor! :)

Sonora Carruseles is from Colombia. They have a nice heavy salsa sound. I gave this one three stars; I am stingy. Its a good solid CD. I prefer music in the Cuban style, which is why I gave this one the rating I did. But some people primarily into dancing...especially non-Cubans..will probably like this stuff, because its easier for them to find the groove. If you like collecting "tropical" then you should buy this one. If you want some solid dance music, buy it. If you're looking for a masterpiece...keep looking.
