Album Review
Margy Kahn
Reviewed 2015-10-29 
Mixture of many genres in a “Rio de la Plata” style that uses Argentine and Uruguayan tempos and melodies; lush but not overwhelming orchestral arrangements alternate with simpler arrangements of tangos, milongas, and Latin flavored rock; solid rhythm on every track

No FCC's

1. Intro -(1:46) – mysterious riff in minor key

2. *Codigo de barra –(3:02)- full orchestra kicks in; lots of strings; lively w/badoneon – sweet

3. *Segundos afuera (3:45) – more bandoneon plus orchestra; nice syncopation; moves right along

4. *Pide piso (5:25) – more syncopation, percussion, synth;staccato; keyboard; strings kick in later; slows then speeds up

5. **Nocturno (3:33) – keyboard solo-- more meditative with keyboard underneath modulating treble

6. Pena en mi corazon (5:17) – vocalist with synth backup plus violins, percussion; devolves to straight-up rock

7. *Caminante (4:07) – pulsing rhythm starts with spooky violin; bandoneon comes in; Astor Piazzola for the 21st century

8. La trufa y el sifon (4:12) – weird beginning with keyboard/synth punch-up; badoneon ornaments; plenty of noise for those who like that

9. **Sabelo (4:37)- weird treble synth sounds with keyboard chords underpinning; keyboard takes over melody; violin sneaks in; fused with multiple genres, but a whole instead of a mishmash, skipping beat, endings with background chanting

10. Patras (4:38) – a bit Hall of the Mountain King at beginning; a bit of a mad marching beat

11. Oigo Voces (2:18) – a capella harmony; American 40's style; scat with vocal percussion

12. Cuesta arriba (4:25)-- rock beat with bandoneon flourishes and vocals

13. *Rendezvous (4:24) – quieter, slower piano with drum and bandoneon; very evocative

14. Lluvia -(5:07) – vocals with backup beats and synth, starts loud, gets quieter; disco beat

15. Noviembre (1:50) – thunderstorm sounds at beginning; then violin, nature sounds

16. Circular (4:55) – late sixties electric guitar sound with vocals

17. *A repechaje (4:11) – back and forth beat, catchy

18. *Milongon (2:51) – updated traditional with lots of instrumental flourishes; catchy

19. Asi es (Propergol) (3:56) –weird synth sounds plus vocals, mysterious

20. Olvidate (3:53) – rock beat; segues to conga line-type vocals

21. Outro (1:48) – back to tip-toe percussion and electric guitar; mellow ending
