The Independent: 'An album made with such integrity and passion that turns out as entertaining as this is hard to resist!'
CD Times: ''Who would have thought that the Arctic Monkeys and the sound of Cuba would go together so well. That's Fantastic! SO GOOD!!' – Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2'
The Guardian: 'Radiohead and Kaiser Chiefs spark revival with a sprinkle of Buena Vista magic. ...so charming... Arctic Monkeys, so wrong it's great!!
Ibrahim Ferrer's 'As Time Goes By' will be treasured, since it turned out to be his final recording before he died.'
Hamburger Abendblatt: 'Mitreißend!' (Electrifying!)
San Fransisco Chronicle: 'It proves to be an entertaining work of art done with honesty and sincerity. Rating: Wild applause.'
**** 4 STARS indie LONDON: 'One of the highlights is 'Dancing Shoes', a passionate blend of Sheffield and Cuba that provides a thrilling Latino-punk rock dancefloor filler. But the subtle guitars and Latin flavour of the Buena Vista musicians also works wonders with Coldplay's 'Clocks', featuring Chris Martin's vocals, Kaiser Chiefs' 'Modern Way' and Maroon 5's 'She Will Be Loved''
***** 5 STARS Beat Surrender: 'Wow, this is quite possibly one of the best albums I've heard this year!!'
GIGWISE: ''Sure, we don't appreciate harping on, but this album puts the coffers where its mouth is, with many fabulous renditions. Ever protective of their recordings, Arctic Monkeys were so enamored by the take on 'Dancing Shoes' that the nod was given to this funky spunky hybrid dressed in Cuban heels that seduces the dancehall - '...put on your dancing shoes/ you sexy little swine...''
Metro - London: 'When the Cubans make a track their own – as on Coco Freeman's dark samba rendering of Franz Ferdinand's 'Matinee' and El Lele's existentialist lounge take on Radiohead's 'High And Dry', the effect is stunning!'
Metro Times - Detroit: 'Ein Album also, das man jedem Musikfreund - egal ob Pop - oder Weltmusik-Fan bedingungslos ans Herz (oder unter den Weihnachtsbaum) legen möchte!'
'A CD which belongs in every music lovers heart (or under everybody's Christmas tree)'
NDR Radio - Germany: 'Die Charakteristika beider Musikstile sind nicht nur erhalten geblieben, sondern haben sich zu etwas Größerem und trotzdem wunderbar Leichtem und Unbeschwertem verbunden.'
'The essence of both music styles is still alive and vibrant but it jointly develops into something much bigger'
RBB Radio - Germany: 'Dies ist ein Projekt der Superlative, oft wird davon geredet, hier stimmt es.'
'This is the kind of project people dream about - but this time it is for real.'
