A Beautiful Spanish Painting,
By A Customer
This review is from: Mi Reflejo (Audio CD)
This is a refreshing mosaic of Spanish music filled with beautiful songs that are alive with energy and the artistry of Aguilera's voice. There is a subtle sexiness throughout this CD which separates it from the in your face 'here it all is' vibe we get from a lot of the female Latin artists. This is just about the music, and the music is great.
From the exiting "Falsas Esperanzas" with it's horns, to the slower and beautiful title track and the lovely "Pero Me Acuerdo De Ti," we are treated to one elegant and nicely arranged song after another. Aguilera's voice sets her apart from the other pop princesses and this Spanish CD shows a maturity and artistry that we can only hope will cross over into her non Spanish efforts. Christina makes the language sound beautiful and producer Rudy Perez surrounds that wonderful voice with first-rate muscians, leaving no doubt she is a force to be reckoned with.
Mi Reflejo garnered quite a few awards and a lot of acclaim. We can only hope it's success will prompt her to keep using this medium as an artistic outlet. Her own personal taste in music runs more towards Etta James, someone unfamiliar to most of her fans. She really has some musical substance and the voice to make magic happen, which is exactly what she does on this exiting, exquisite, and subtly sexy labor of love that leaves us wanting more. This is really something terrific and you'll want more as well once you hear it.......
