Latin music reviews
by dancers for dancers

Categories explained

Artist: if more than 2 artists are included in the CD, we list them as 'Various'.

CD Title: pay attention that some artists have the curious habit of releasing the same CD under different names.

Style: this is the crucial difference between our site and other salsa music review sites. Our reviews are for dancers and consequently we use a classification suitable for dancers. For example, a song which would normally be danced as 'Cha Cha Cha' we call it so, even if musically, it might be a son montuno; also we make a distinction between salsa, timba, son, classic mambo and NY style mambo, since that may influence what style of salsa you dance to that song.

Our Rank: we rank each song from 1 star (=not our taste) to 5 stars (=we like it a lot!!!). Obviously, most tracks will have 3 stars, which is equivalent to 'we quite like it'. In particular:

  • 1* = ‘This is what Hell must feel like’
  • 2* = ‘I don’t like this song, but if someone asks for a dance I won’t refuse’
  • 3* = ‘This song is ok”
  • 4* = ‘I have to find someone to dance with... now!’
  • 5* = ‘If I don’t dance this song, there is no point living..’
