All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Arriving in 1996 after several years of alternating English-language adult contemporary pop albums with contemporary Latin pop albums, Tango was a back to basics move of sorts for Julio Iglesias.

Back to basics might be stretching it a little, because Iglesias always was a contemporary pop singer, so this was more of a roots move, finding Iglesias tackling 12 of the most famous tangos, many of which date back to the '30s and '40s, if not earlier. If the production did not exactly sound timeless -- it was a contemporary big-budget recording, so it was very clean and polished -- it nevertheless wasn't nearly as slick as his English language records, and the execution of these tangos modernized these classic songs, bringing them to new audiences. Iglesias responded in kind, giving them some of his most passionate performances in years, and the result was one of the highlights of his '90s work. [In 2006, Tango was reissued by Columbia/Legacy in remastered sound with new liner notes.]

    A reviewer

    I am really happy finally finding some of the older classic esp. if I'm not mistaken, the African-Argentine writers. For example the song Yira...Yira by E. S. Discepolo dates from 1936. Wonderful words with a wonderful voice. Some of these early songs have lunfardo words. Lunfardo was the vocabulary of the bars, pimps, gangsters, etc. This CD has a helpful lunfardo dictionary. It would have been more helpful if everything was bilingual besides Spanish in English also.
