5.0 out of 5 stars So much more than I thought it would be... July 11 2004
Format:Audio CD
Being a huge of fan of the first movie and its entire repertoire of songs, I was skeptical when told about an upcoming sequel/prequel. So many turn out to be weak, bland, repetitive versions of the original and I thought 'Havana Nights' would be a total washout, both plot and music-wise. I was pleasantly surprised on both counts. Not only was the movie fresh and entertaining, I actually ran out and bought the CD as soon as my schedule permitted!
Not being a regular listener of Cuban music, I must admit that I can't comment on the soundtrack's authenticity. Seriously though, I didn't care a whit about whether Cuba played these kind of songs during the 1950s or if the rap influence is more American than Latin. None of it mattered. Tracks like 'Dance Like This', 'Guajira', 'Represent, Cuba' and 'Satellite' were catchy, appropriately sexy and contemporary without sounding overtly 'pop' and had me shimmying and shaking right along with Diego Luna and Romola Garai. I also found the ballad 'El Beso Del Final' hauntingly beautiful... And that was before I found a translation and realised how poignantly apt the lyrics were.
All in all, I'd say this one's a keeper. It's going to my personal 'Hall of Fame', right next to the 'Dirty Dancing' and 'More Dirty Dancing' soundtracks I have carefully tucked away. :)

1.0 out of 5 stars It's 1956, Cuba, not 2004 the Bronx!!!! April 7 2004
Format:Audio CD
What was the point of the modern day music???!?! Is it just profit nowadays? Let's get the hiphoppers and make some money! I am entirely disappointed from the producer's decision to make such an inapropriate mix. Maybe a different time music worked for Moulin Rouge, but that was tasteful. The movie is a cinematic thrill, in spite of the usuall bla,bla,bla dialogue, banal plotlines. It's worth seeing it just for the dancing and the locations. that's wat I expected exept the music. I thought it was going to be something genuine as the music in mambo kings, but apparently we're not doing arty stuff anymore - they don't sell much, so we're selling out, instead. I guess since it's pretty much PG stuff, the kids are targeted for the soundtrack, and since they'll buy anything popular and not care if they like hip hop( not a valid music genire since it hardly has music) we're stuck with these boring latinazed hip hop beats. but,maybe go see the movie and enjoy the scenery and definitly DO NOT buy the soundtrack!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Little More Than Not Bad March 19 2004
Format:Audio CD
OK. First of all this CD is heaven to me because having an A in Spanish I. its really fun to pick up phrases like "Yo quiero bailar a la musica" (I want to dance to the music) and others like that. And then there are two all-Spanish tracks like El Beso Del Final (The Kiss Of The Final, Christina Aguilera) and El Estuche (The Case, Aterciopelados). But, besides all that, the early songs of the album are the best, including "Dirty Dancing" by the Black Eyed Peas, which combines hiphop with Latino musica. Some people say that there was no rap in the 60's but people from the 60's aren't gonnna buy this CD, people nowadays will be the ones buying the CD and see the movie. Another good song worth mentioning is "Do You Only Wanna Dance?" by Mya, whom I thought was Christina Aguilera, so that shows how much she's improved since "My Love Is Like...Whoa!". "Satellite", "You Send Me", "Dance Like This", and "Represent CUBA" are the other good songs. But the BEST SONG is "Guajira... I Love U 2 Much" by Yerba Buena, whoever that is. I cant even describe it is sooooo goood. The album also features an intrumental version of "Do You Only Wanna Dance?" and a Spanish version of "Satellite". Although nothing spectacular, they serve their purpose.
BOTTOM LINE: BUY IT, if you like the genre and/or the movie.
PS: I have not seen Dirty Dancing, o Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights, so I'm not biased. AND I'm a guy, so you other men can like it too. -matt

By Ursula
Format:Audio CD
I have to say that when I start it listen to the CD, I was very excited. One reason was that I love CUBAN MUSIC! When I was watching the movie in the theatre, I felt each beat of the music that was playing on the movie. I could feel my blood raising up high. I wished so bad to be there. I got excited in the point that there is the soundtrack, I bought it...because I thought I will find exactly all the songs and rythms, that was played in the movie. '
My first impression was WOW THIS IS GREAT!!!, but then listening over and over, and thinking about the movie, there are some songs that don't really combine with the movie. For myself as a hispanic person and love cuban music and rythms, I give my respest to the director because they tried to have a combination like the american way as the first movie DIRTY DANCING.. but I think this DIRTY DANCING: HAVANA NIGHTS had to be different and not to be compared with the first. Let me tell you that the first DIRTY DANCING it was all AMERICAN STYLE.. NOW THIS DIRTY DANCING: HAVANA NIGHTS is totally way different has more passion, culture, music, people IT'S CUBA! and what the movie show that's not all, CUBA IS MORE THAN THAT WHEN IT COMES TO MUSIC!, TRACKS LIKE # 1,2,4,8,9 it's american style, that has nothing to do with the WORD TITLE HAVANA NIGHTS! (that is not cuba at all..not even 1%), TRACKS LIKE #3,5,6,7(EXCELLENT),10,11,12 IT HAS A LOT LATIN RYTHMS WHICH IS VERY GOOD WITH LATIN ARTISTS! TRACKS 3 and 7 are cuban artists YERBA BUENA and ORISHAS, this is typically latin rap from CUBA, which is EXCELLENT. YOU HAVE TO LISTEN VERY WELL, and no RYTHMS, and is very easy to identyfing.

3.0 out of 5 stars rather mediocre ...
Well, personally, I thought the movie was horrible, or at least, the end result was since it had so much potential that apparently got cut away in its final stages. Read more
