For the Gipsy Kings fan who has been touched by their music for 25 years, or the first-time listener; this CD is sure to surprise and delight.

The instrumental "Tiempo del Sol" is an exquisite masterpiece of timing and lyrical genius; with such subtle nuances of tenderness and feeling, leaving one astonished. A beautiful duet of flute and guitar.

"Sueno" is a touching lull-a-bye, done flamenco style.

"Savor Flamenco" is a great tango flamenco that will compel one to clap one's hands to the rhythm.

"Como l'Agua" is a soul-grabbing flamenco spiritual; if I can coin a new phrase.

The new CD proves that the Gipsy Kings still have it, after all these years, and always will.

This CD is a delight!!

P.S. It doesn't hurt also, that Tonino Baliardo has a rivetingly perfect sense of flamenco compas.

From southern France, the Reyes family along with cousins the Baliardos decades ago brought flamenco into the global pop marketplace with the infectious, danceable, cheerful 4/4 (3-3-2) Spanish rhumba beat. The excitement continues in this release. Guitars and voice dominate supplemented with guest musicians playing percussion, bass, flute, and acoustic and electronic keyboards, and synthesized programming. Is the album a major departure from those of earlier years? No, but there are some important developments. They have a successful formula, so other than improved engineering, more musicians, and more thoughtful arrangements the group did not leave their comfort zone. The instrumental Tiempo del Sol (track 4), which features the flute and some rapid guitar work, does standout as a different Latin popular idiom, but the following track is back to the familiar strong rhumba. A ballad (track 6) is next with some pleasant guitar styling. Samba Samba is nothing of the sort, as it too is a rhumba, but with several brief interludes of Brazilian percussion in samba rhythm. What I do appreciate is that the Gipsy Kings keep the spirit of the flamenco acoustic guitar, and this is demonstrated in the tangos, Savor Flamenco. Sueño is another softer ballad; the final track, Habla Contingo, is a good hybrid of a more traditional, that is rough-voiced, cantaor with pop flamenco. I do enjoy this album, but it lacks the magic of a milestone.

All I can say to fans is the obvious, buy it! For others wondering about the magic of the GK, check out some of their videos and music (with a good sound system damn it, I can't tell you how many people still listen to concerts or music on small headphones and tiny speakers) and hopefully you will become a fan as well. Songs I recommend for first time listeners of the Gipsy Kings are (and I'll list the album as well): Moorea (Gipsy Kings first album), Salsa de Noche, Mira La Itana Mora and La Fiesta Comenza (album Compas), Lagrimas (Este Mundo), A Ti A Ti (Tierra Gitana), Majiwi and Magia del Ritmo (Somos Gitanos), Tampa (Roots), Si Tu Me Quieres, Café, Amor (Pasajero), Nina Morena, Viento del Arena (Mosaique), Madre Mia, Michael, (Love and Liberte). I recommend everything GK, check out their concert at Kenwood House as well, it is really a great concert and a song called A Mi Mora (which has not been released as far as I know) is incredible. The people in the audience really got excited after this one.

This is my second Gipsy Kings album, having previously purchased Pasajero, and this one does not compare. In Pasajero the different tracks felt different in mood, tempo, etc., but here they all felt the same, after a while just blending into the background.

Love their story, history, their passion to carry on their culture and traditions.
Very glad they came to America and shared their amazing skills with us.
Have been to many concerts/venues with these boys and am always mesmerized by them.
Very happy for their continued success.

I have been a fan of the Gipsy Kings for about fifteen years and either own or have heard everything they've produced that's been released in the US. I am a believer.

Their new (September, 2013) release is vintage Gipsy Kings stuff ... flamenco, samba, and great instrumentals with Tonino Balliardo up front.

Having said that, 25 years is a long time to be singing at the volume and intensity that Nicolas Reyes brings to his performances, and it shows in places. So while this is "vintage" in more ways than one, it's great to see a group like this producing new material rather than just touring to their greatest hits and repackaging what they've produced in the past. If you're a believer, as I am, this is for you.

At first, I was a little turned off. Their style has morphed a little. I felt like they were trying to hard.
By the time I listened to it the third time, I couldn't stop listening to it over and over.
Favorite upbeat tracks: 1, 7, 8. The instrumentals are excellent. Song 10 is a essentially a lullaby. Stunningly beautiful.
Its not their best album - but I love all their albums and this one is solidly in the mix.

I first heard the Gipsy Kings on Pandora, "My Way", it reminded me of the movie I was watching with my grandkids "Happy Feet". I have always loved Spanish music even though I not speak it. This music has a vibrant beat with the Flamenco flavor and a jazz flavor. A good listen.
