Nice for a little, just (as my main complaint with most of the albums on here), it's pretty dang long. Nice ambient music. Cool concept, as well. Favorite tracks: "Queremos Paz", "Vuelvo Al Sur"

Linen suits, eyes crouched behind smoked glass, a cappuccino on the terrazzo. The evening wears on, out comes the cognac, the fine Bolivian, lithe Polish escorts with cat eyes and cruel mouths. A dance that happens every weekend, every night in this corner of the Old World. All played out to the deadly, sclerotic beat of a music that never knew it was ever alive.

No ubicaba a Gotan Project, pero gran disco ambiental (?). Creo que logra muy bien su fusión de sonidos del tango con más géneros y se vuelve algo muy experimentalón. Lo disfruté mucho y creo que, de cierta forma, se siente su vibra noventera (aunque ya fuera un disco del nuevo milenio). "Queremos paz", "Chunga's Revenge" y "Una música brutal", mis favs. "Vuelvo al sur" tiene una que otra letra padre y como en realidad me gustó todo, aprecio igual sus "cortes" instrumentales, jaja. 10/10

I have a weak spot for southamerican music, for trippy beats and for electronic. This fusion totally hooked me from the first minute. I *think* that CD was big in Switzerland, at least I remember that cover art, but never heard of. Thanks to 1001 albums I finally got around listening to it. Will definitively listen to it more, especially for coding / concentration work.

Muito lindo. Me faz pensar no sul do mundo como um centro de cultura único. O tango, a milonga e seus demais ritmos são patrimônios de rico valor para o povo argentino bem como uruguaio e por que não sul brasileiro? Gotan deu um jeito de contar as origens com um tom de futuro. Sempre parece uma boa ideia, mas nem sempre dá certo. Mas nesse caso felizmente deu. :)

Usually don't get as hooked for what would be "background" music otherwise but this was really well done. There were enough subtle flourishes and nuance between songs to keep it interesting and even the long songs didn't seem as long. Blatantly French, but that added an element. Also invoked Gran Turismo soundtrack vibes.

¿Tango electrónico? Bien, yo ya había escuchado música de Gotan Project, así que este disco no me resultó nada extraño, pero no había escuchado ninguna de estas canciones. Lo que sí me sorprendió fue que este grupo fuera francés. La primera vez que escuché algo así fue curiosamente en una clase de tango. Supongo que para los “puristas” de ese género escuchar esto es una aberración, pero a mi me pareció genial. Una visión “fresca” del género, y celebro que alguien se haya atrevido a intentarlo. Si bien el disco me agrada musicalmente, siento que el “comentario social” que tienen un par de canciones (ie El Capitalismo Foráneo) era innecesario. Siento que es más una estrategia mercadológica que un verdadero interés por los problemas sociales, pero quizá es algo de la época y lugar, ya que Manu Chao hace algo parecido (pero él se me hace más auténtico). Otra cosa interesante del disco es que las canciones que más me gustaron son las que menos parecen tango: Tríptico “me mamó”, como diría la chaviza, y también “La del Ruso” que parece música africana. Siento que 4 es demasiado, pero 3 muy poco, así que le pondría 3.5 si pudiera.

Mixing tango with electronic music is such a good idea, that Gotan Project's debut album still sounds fresh even to this day. The ominous feeling of the violin and the bandoneon, classic tango instruments, are put side to side with lounge beats, and the result is chilling, in a very good way. Santa María (del Buen Ayre)" and "Época" are staples to this very unique genre, and the fact that they've included a cover of Frank Zappa's "Chunga's Revenge" makes listening to this album a fantastic voyage through western music, from Argentina to the world.

Soooo good! I definitely recognized "Santa Maria" from when I was in an Electro Swing phase and listening to Pandora a lot at work.

Cool mix of electronic beats and jazz. Very much as mood piece where most of the songs sound the same, but it is a nice chill mix to have on! My favourite track is the first one, but perhaps because I have a hard time telling them apart? I do appreciate the sampled spoken Spanish (the sampled vocals sounds like it may be from a film or something with some effect on the vocal - reminds me of maybeshewill?). Very enjoyable!

It's not bad. But it does verge on the corny for me, as it ALMOST reminds me of electro swing which I find to be the most reprehensible form of music ever conceived. I think French music in general I've never really grasped or fully appreciated (except for maybe Satie) and probably due to my own ignorance, the type of music being referenced here as the basis just kind of goes over my head and comes off as a little kitsch. I can hear some Portishead at a superficial level as well which is probably the frame of reference that allows me to at least have some appreciation for it.

Me decepcionó bastante y le doy la tercera estrella muy apenas. El recuerdo que tenía de Gotan Project era de mañanas de cruda en el Oktoberfest hace 11 años y por alguna razón recuerdo que en aquel entonces me gustó, aunque quizá era otro de sus discos. No es música mala, simplemente es que la mezcla de lounge con Tango se vuelve tediosa cuando oyes una hora completa de eso. De pronto hasta se siente demasiado mamón el "Argentina… Buenos Aires" Ay cálmate wey.

This is so close to something great, but it falls short. There is a spark of something really interesting here, but it flies a little too close to background music. Still, not unpleasant. Just... not living up to its full potential. This is music for people who hear something like Budos Band or Dub Trio and think, "this would be great if it was toned down even further."

An argot is not "Argo." "Argo" was a movie about the 1979 Iranian Hostage Crisis starring Ben Affleck. Pretty decent flick. Argo was the ship that Jason and the Argonauts built with help from the gods. Argot is neither of those things. It's a slang language used to prevent outsiders from understanding conversations. Y'know, like pig Latin. And actually, the argot from which the name "Gotan Project" derives - Lunfardo, an argot of Rioplatense Spanish (the dialect spoken in Argentina) - is a lot like pig Latin. Tango, with beats and breaks and jazz elements, from a Paris trio with Argentine, French, and Swiss members? Well that sounds interesting. And the style is interesting... for a little while. Then it all blends into the background and feels little same-y. When the Argentinian tango sound is most prevalent is when Gotan Project are at their best. Otherwise it's usually just pretty generic late 90s/early 00s electronica. Reminds me of Portishead, just not nearly as good. But of course, is anyone? Again, when the tango is the driving force in songs, it's better. Iyay ivegay ityay eethray arsstay. Ecentday inyay ethay ackgroundbay.

-"Chunga's Revenge" is a cover of the Frank Zappa song, but I could barely tell lol -"Tríptico" has this cool backing groove going on. Very chill, but stuff's going on enough to make it interesting, and it picks up as the song goes on. -I like the intense, syncopated motif in "Una Música Brutal" -"Last Tango in Paris" has like a cool funky groove and a classic French song overlaid on top of each other -"La Del Ruso" has a cool swoosh sound in it and great groove throughout -Very strong 3, but nothing crazy to really pull me back to it, but incredibly solid music

This was very easy to listen to; it was perfect for both background music and active listening! It reminds me of more upbeat elevator music, and I LOVED the latin flair. Now I am wondering, if someone is going to play "elevator music" in an actual elevator, why they would settle for anything less than this. I didn't feel like I needed to try to understand the occasional, minimal lyrics; they felt more atmospheric than anything and added a nice vibe. This album was a nice surprise!

Pros: - I really just love moody noir music... and this album feels like it was created out of red wine, cigarettes, a one night stand after a chance meeting in a jazz bar, and the sound of footsteps down a Parisian alley. - Chunga's Revenge - what a name. Love the snare ghost notes that pull the rhythm off-beat. Cons: - It's place on this list is IMO debatable. It's a very cool overall sound but I wonder what albums aren't on this list that this album has taken the place of. Misc:

La del ruso: L'unico pezzo che m'è piaciuto un po'. Ed è quello meno ascoltato su Spotify e questo mi fa sentire un grande hipster edgy. In Conclusione: A me sto disco ricorda due situazioni. Situazione uno: un qualunque lounge bar aperto in zona che fa un qualsiasi cocktail più di 15 euro e fa l'apericena. Te spara sta roba nel locale con le luci soffuse e il cameriere te chiede se mangiate anche qualche stuzzichino perché te gli hai chiesto solo na birra e quindi sei un poveraccio e gli fai pena. Situazione due: Musica stock che mettono sotto alle pubblicità delle imprese locali all'UCI di Porta di Roma, di solito è il gommista oppure il posto che vende le cucine o fa le piastrelle. E' veramente elevator music, sta quasi alla pari di Bill Evans e non si merita manco l'uno perché mi è stato totalmente indifferente. Avrei dovuto dare l'uno a Notorious BIG, ora me ne pento, lui sì che se lo meritava.

Mi ricordano quei gruppi ospiti nelle trasmissioni in prima serata italiane. Sento la voce di Milly Carlucci che li presenta dicendo "il loro sound unisce l'elettronica e Tango! Pensate che sono primi in tutte le classifiche mondiali!" Dopodiché, partono loro con la musica e il balletto. Comunque qualcosina mi è piaciuta, ma nel complesso mi hanno annoiato. Neanche la produzione mi ha convinto molto.

My first reaction is, "What the hell is this?" 2 songs in, I'm still thinking that, but according to the album title it's "Tango" music, so now I know what the hell this is. But is there a point to listening to this if you're not dancing or watching people dance to it? It's fine. I mean the beats are fine. It's also another world language album, and I've already made myself clear that when albums come up like this, I am forced to focus more on the music, and these songs are quite rhythmic and repetitive likely for dancing purposes. I know a little Spanish, so I can make out some of the lyrics, but overall. I'm underwhelmed. This is basically background music to me.

Original sí, con buenos sonidos a veces, pero llega a ser repetitivo y cansar.

I mean, it's nice, but I feel like I'm in an overpriced fusion restaurant.

Hahaha wow I know almost all of these songs because they play at the restaurant. I was laughing listening to this because one after another I was going, “Yep, I know this one too.” “Queremos Paz,” “Una Músical Brutal” and “Vuelvo Al Sur” (plus a few others) are probably among my most listened to songs of all time because they play every day at work. Honestly though the music itself is pretty cool. A lounge-y mix of Latin American music with French jazz but… I just can’t separate the music from how I know it. One day, years from now, this will be a 5-star listening experience for the nostalgia. It’s gonna bring back a lot of memories. But today I have to give it a 2 hahah

This is really not my jam. There was a song with this incredibly loud and piercing bell for some reason. No good para me.

Did not understand this at all. Not listenable through and through. My first big miss with this service.

Lo siento amigos. No puedo con esto. Esos beats downtempo son tan desesperantes, mejor hubieran incluido un disco de, no sé, TANGOOO. Esto es una mierda para vender el género a gringos genéricos.

La revancha de.... no se quién pero esto suena a la peor clase de "mezcla innovadora" de inicios de los 00's que hay. Ese smooth jazz lounge chill con tango uuuh que innovador... No, no son Astor Piazzolla (quien guste vaya a escuchar Libertango mejor si les interesa qué se puede hacer interesante con el ritmo). Música casi para irme al bar de oxígeno y ordenar de la carta de 25 tipos de martinis. Mezclar por mezclar, ni suena bien el tango ni la parte electrónica aporta nada interesante. Es el primer disco que reconozco me salte un par de canciones que iban a 2/3 o 3/4 de acabar y simplemente ya no aguantaba.

I liked Epoca to some extent. The rest wasn't that great.

It's hard to describe what it is that makes me love and hate this music in equal parts. I loved two songs on this... but it really doesn't matter which ones they were because they all sound roughly the same. Dramatic. Spain. Paris. Cafés. Theatre. That accordion-thing and some strings. The music is interesting, there's a lot going on here but this album fills me with anxiety after about 10 mins. of listening. I'm not sure what it is, but the first two mins. were very enjoyable. The balance of the album had me looking for a bridge to jump off of. In summary, I would rather listen to "Closing Time" by Semisonic on a loop than turn on this album one more time.
