Customer Review

on 13 November 2005
You've probably heard this album without realising whilst on holiday in Spain, where Juanes is huge. Sadly Latino music has yet to catch on over here, and perhaps it never will, which is so sad. A song's lyrics may be totally inane, but for us Brits they have to be in English, so we miss out on so many great Latino artistes like Café Tacuba, Diego Torres and Juanes, a brilliant Columbian singer / songwriter who has now broken into the German and French markets. Produced by Gustavo
Santaolalla, who did the music for 'Motorcycle Diaries' and 'Amores Perros', Juanes writes catchy tunes with meaningful lyrics. Students of Spanish may be interested to learn that the lyrics of the first track 'A dios le pido' are an excellent example of the subjunctive in action!
This is a splendid album and a superb introduction to Latino pop music, which is just as good as the Anglo-Saxon version; some might say better.
