"Just when you think you may have heard the `best', a vocal group
completes a long-standing effort to achieve perfection and the
marker is moved up. From the opening tune, `Oye Como Va' through
the last ballad `When October Goes', the stylish rhythms and
phrasings, the impeccable harmonies and stunning solos, and the
driving blend that never falters, all tell you this is a unique
effort by a very talented ensemble.... the best I could imagine
placing before the world stage. It's golden. Acquire it any way
-Rol Sharette, The Colorado
