I was originally looking for Oscar Lopez's Seduction CD when I saw Flashback and got it also. I liked Flashback better because it was a very nice mix of all his songs from his different CDs. I did not like the song Armando's Fire, however. Too jazzy, just not in keeping with the rest of the songs on the CD. It just did not fit and it spoiled the mood the rest of the songs created. That one could have been left off this CD (and anywhere else as well). Oscar Lopez has a very nice style similar to Ottmar Liebert, Armik, Jesse Cook and other similar artists. I must say that I prefer Jesse Cook, however, over Oscar Lopez. There seems to be more variety and a definate passion that I don't really feel in Oscar Lopez's songs which are very great guitar work but so similar to others that it gets old after awhile. All in all, though I am happy with the 2 CDs Flashback and Seduction that I have and if you love good classical Latin type guitar, you should love Oscar Lopez.
I went in the store to find an Ottmar Liebert CD I had heard and I came away with Flashback. I listened to this CD in the store and loved it--I am new to this genre of music but got hooked listening to my sister-in-law's Opium CD. I recently had a baby and wanted some peaceful soothing music for the baby and I. I now want to buy more of Lopez' music after purchasing this CD! It truly is beautiful.
If you really enjoy nuevo flamenco, and like Oscar Lopez, buy this cd, don't even hesitate. It is a wonderful compilation of the best of his work. The cds these tracks came from are all very good, but don't waste your time on Armando's Fire, very substandard for Lopez. This cd is highly listenable from beginning to end. Enjoy!
