Armik has driven deep into his quest to create first rate Nuevo Flamenco music with this ambitious 11 track recording titled ENAMOR. As his 28th release on Bolero Records, it is an exceptional example of the art of Armik both as a guitar virtuoso and as a composer. Throughout this recording he retains a Spanish Guitar sensibility in his precise touch while his compositions yield refined, romantic chords that leave you breathless and obsessed with his award-winning arrangements. ENAMOR. is a beautiful recording on which Armik demonstrates a completely original sound that is sophisticated yet creative. He makes each note count while playing with his delicate touch and makes sure that you emerge with a greater appreciation of his musicality and all that is heard in the fine art of Nuevo Flamenco.

It's easy to say this is the U.S. version of the European released "Valentyne Suite", but it's much more complicated than that. We have some different musicians on this one, and half the songs on here weren't on the original. And the four original tracks have been changed somewhat as well. They kept the same album cover but changed the hue. As Sean Trane says in his review "Did you say confusing ?" I really didn't think this would be nearly as good as the original since the 17 minute title track "Valentyne Suite" was missing from this one (although "The Grass Is Greener" section is included), but I was wrong. The four new tracks are simply outstanding ! And while I wouldn't say they're as good as the "Valentyne Suite", they're good enough (along with the other tracks) to give this 4 stars. I'll review the four new songs that I didn't already review on the "Valentyne Suite" album.
