" Its historical overview, beginning with the primitive tango that shook a younger pop world, is just the thing to provide the hint of roots rock and rollers prefer in their exotica. Oh those crazy urban folk."
Robert Cristgau, Village Voice 8/30/88
One of the best records of 1988...[one of] the rawest and most soulful...this one I love."
Rick Swenson, Record Roundup March 1989
