  1. Comparisons will inevitably be made between Canto and the Buena Vista Social Club disc, but the most significant similarity is that they both feature great songs and terrific musicianship.
  2. Offers up one superb song after another.... Even if you don't consider yourself to be much a Latin music fan, do yourself a favor and check out Canto.
  3. As great as Los Super Seven's self-titled debut still sounds, the new Canto, produced with even more flair by Los Lobos' Steve Berlin, widens the group's scope to include the entire Latin-American hemisphere, acting as an even broader tribute to Latino culture.
  4. Several arrangements lean to the left, bringing to mind another Los Lobos side project, the Latin Playboys. [3/16/2001, p.68]
  5. Canto is a passionate mix of originals and material drawn from the traditions of Mexico, Cuba, and Peru.
  6. 80
    A lush cruise through the Caribbean's romantic songwriting traditions with some additional stops in South America.
  7. Los fans--as well as those who just love great, spicy rhythms--will quickly learn that they Canto live without this disc.
