Album Review
Reviewed 2003-12-09 
At heart it’s Flamenco, but Ruibal mixes in influences of North Africa, jazz, salsa, and other flavors. He has a very emotional voice and there’s some great guitar work on here (mostly by Tito Alcedo). It’s a bit overdone in places, though.

*1. Uptempo & lyrical.
2. Jazzy w/some strong vocals.
3. Horns, electric bass, perc, vocals. Mid-tempo.
*4. Lively and lyrical w/big horns & vox.
5. Soaring vocals, guitars, perc. Mid-tempo.
6. A swaying, romantic tune w/nice guitars.
7. Pretty, low-key guitar duet w/vocals.
8. Another romantic air, this time w/strings.
*9. Jazz orchestration and romantic lyrics.
10. A bright mid-tempo sway.
11. Mid-tempo, big strings/chorus.
12. Strings/vox/sax. A sad sound.
*13. Cool piano, varied tempos. Nice.
14. Mid-tempo. Nice blend of voices/guitar/perc.
*15. Simple but emotional, piano & vox. Slow, sad.
