5-0 out of 5 stars Great Guitar Duo
This is a fabulous, very high energy, instrumental album. Rodrigo and Gabriela combine their metal roots with latin melodies, and use the guitar as a percussion instrument in a way I've never seen before. See them live if you can. They grew up in Mexico city trying to make it playing in a metal band, and are now living in Ireland with this album that hit the top of the Irish music charts.

5-0 out of 5 stars AMAZING.
This is an unbelievable album, and I definitely recommend it. Rodrigo y Gabriela are two amazingly talented musicians. The way they mix so many different genres is incredible and makes the music they create unique, fun, and exciting. A friend recommended them to me, and I was a bit skeptical at first as I've never even really thought about listening to a guitar album, but now I'm completely hooked. I've found it's great to have on in the background in my dorm, and everyone that's heard it in my room has loved it as well. To sum things up, BUY THIS ALBUM! It is well worth it! ... Read more

I understand what some other users are saying when they complaint about the album having the same sound as some of their earlier work. However, even thought I haven't had the chance to judge for my self, I'm looking forward to it. One way or another.
5-0 out of 5 stars Same Mana we know and love
Im really satisfied with this new offering from one of "rock en espanol's" finest!Im pleased not shocked.It actually reminds me of alot of the previous Mana albums and i dont know if that is a good or bad thing.Like i said the album is great i love it just like i like all of Mana's albums however i would have liked it if Mana experimented with new sounds.I have to give it to the band because there is no way i can say this cd isn't good or original but it lacks an innovative touch.Rather than play it safe with "Mana" sounds (which we all know and love), they should have explored different synths of sounds.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome CD!!!
Mario Vazquez delivered a great album of versatility and honesty. This is the real Mario the whole world was waiting for. Smooth vocals blending with great songwriting and quality production. Good for you Mario!! I'm looking forward to your next CD...!!!
2-0 out of 5 stars Highly disappointing
I was very disappointed by this CD. I was expecting much more after buying and listening to the Cesar CD. I can't complain about Mario's singing, but the song selection and style was no where near as good as the Cesar CD. I was expecting the beautiful latin style and rhythms. This was cheap hip hop sounding.

5-0 out of 5 stars Suprisingly GREAT debut!
Did not expect this CD to be as good as it is when I purchased it. Mario Vazquez is the 29 y/o who made it to the finals of American Idol in season 4 and then decided to quit for "personal reasons". Everyone was shocked because he was alread quipped as being a fan favorite. 2 years later he comes out with a very solid debut, self titled CD.

Fantastic and mindblowing guitarists. The entire album is beautful and masterfully done which is so different from anything done today. AMAZING!

5-0 out of 5 stars WOW -- this is Fantastic!
My wife and I were driving to a friend's when the local rock station played the first cut "Tamacun" and we decided it was amazing and decided to pre-order it. I am thrilled ... listening to it for the first time, I'm over halfway through and there's not a bad piece in the bunch. Absolutely incredible work, and well worth the price.

5-0 out of 5 stars I'm gonna have to agree
This is a really great record. The cover caught my eye on iTunes and I sampled it and ended up buying the album. Fantastic production and lovely tones. Toe-tapping and dark in places. The Orion cover is a must-have.

My Parents really enjoyed this particulay album when it came out a few years ago. This past month, we celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary and this CD was played throughout the grand party - bringing sweet memories and tears of rememberance to both parents eyes and their childrens eyes. Being that Mom is of hispanic heritage and dad's deep appreciation of that culture - that adds up to my love of this type of music. This CD is a treasure that will provide memories forever.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great CD.
This is an excellent CD.Linda Ronstadt has never sounded better, singing that is.She has a great voice, but she is a left-wing quack who spouts her mouth off about things she knows nothing about.If you can forgive her nutty liberal opinions, then I will highly recommend.Great CD.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent!
I agree with the other reviewers.... this is one is also my favorite Lila Down's album...quite surprisingly.I am more taken by the proposal of other albums like Tree of Life, with their emphasis on less well known regional music from Oaxaca.Conversely....when I saw the song line-up, I thought...what a joke - these songs & styles have been done over & over again.... the last thing I need is another Ranchera & Norteno CD.But then I listened....was impressed....and bought it.
5-0 out of 5 stars Lila's Best so Far! / Lo Mejor de Lila Hasta Entonces!
I read about Lila Downs' new CD, La Cantina, in Victor Cruz- Lugo's article entitled, "Sweet Sorrow," published in the June-July 2006 issue of Hispanic Magazine (page 76).
5-0 out of 5 stars I think this is her best!
Lila Downs can be a bit preachy or pc and I have no problem with that but this album is a GAS, both with the lyrics and the music. In fact, it sounds like she's having a lot of fun. The cumbias in particular are catchy and hip. If you like this, be sure and check out Astrid Hadad's album "Ay!" ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Volume in Great Series
I love this CD (and the others in the series) because they instantly create the mood you are after. In this case, if you want Latin sounds and rhythms, you pop this CD into your stereo and you're instantly transported away. I often play this CD at work because it provides a nice backdrop of sound that's upbeat without being too distracting.

4-0 out of 5 stars Draws you in...
Yes,its true. From the first track onward, this album draws you in with its storytelling, spoken word and soothing melodies.At first glance, this wasn't something I would listen to but, alas after my first listen, it was hard for me to listen to anything else for a week!! Putumayo always does it right when they put together a project.Standout tracks are "Reflejo de Luna", "Caminhos de Cuba",and "Carmela".Any Putumayo fan will not be disappointed.

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect for lounging
This is one of the best Putumayo CDs I own so far. Each song has a particular mood and character to it - from trippy, relaxing, romantic, sexy to dramatic. Love the mix of electronica beats, violins and flamenco guitars. A must have!! ... Read more

I love this CD and their previous one too. Love every single song. I listen to it almost everyday.

I think this album is fantastic.From the first sweet melody of Noche, until the very last note of the Cuando Cuentos Cuento (the hidden track), it's great.The silly little songs like V.O.S., the thought provoking songs like Vuelve, and the sweet songs like Apareces tu, are all there, and so is the LODVG signature sound.It didn't grab me as easily as "Lo que te conte mientras...", but after a few listens has easily become one of my favorite albums. ...

Putumayo has never gone wrong with its Brazilian compilations.Like "Brasileiro",its first Brazilian compilation,this album is focused on the country's acoustic music.This album is reflective,relaxing,and at times bittersweet,like dark chocolate.
5-0 out of 5 stars Great music
I got this CD to dance my 8 month old baby to sleep -- it worked great for that. I've heard it so many times, but I love it everytime, and it keeps getting better. Track 4 is my favorite at the moment!

5-0 out of 5 stars Sure, it's got sambas, though not the more upbeat ones.....
.....but still very fun and relaxful to listen to and enjoy. This is a nice set of low-key sambas, bossa nova, and acoustic guitar melodies which makes you feel more at ease with yourself (and sung in Portuguese, one of the world's most musical languages, even if you don't understand a word of it).

4-0 out of 5 stars Great for Rodriguez Fans
This is a good compilation. If you're looking for the song that Antonio Banderas plays to the kid in Desperado, this has the full version. Mostly good songs, but a few that aren't amazing.There's a few songs that supposedly inspired the story, but really aren't near as good as the rest. If you like the "epic mexican spaghetti western" sound of Rodriguez's stuff then this is good to have. And I think some of it is previously unreleased, so if you've got all the other soundtracks, this should be next on the list. Good stuff for a Rodriguez fan, or even just someone that's into the unique style.

5-0 out of 5 stars captivating
I came across this album after watching Kill Bill V2.The song that starts just prior to the closing credits (and continues through the credits) is Malague�a Salerosa and I just had to know more about this song.As a result, I discovered this CD.As it turns out, Robert Rodriguez did the score for Kill Bill V2 and I subsequently have come to discover what a creative talent this man is.I heartily recommend the book "Rebel without a Crew," which I recently read.It is Robert's story behind making El Mariachi (I have also posted a review of that book).
5-0 out of 5 stars Not Much "Mariachi", But....
I bought this CD on the strength of my knowledge of some of the musicians hoping to find a sleeper. And I did! The problem for the record company is how to get music stores to put it where it will be found by the "right" people, that is those with an adventurous taste in music who are not afraid to cross over into music sung in a language other than English. Waterloo Records in Austin long ago figured out how to reach that type of listener and so this is a hot seller in Austin. But what about the rest of the US?

Editorial Review

John Lee Hooker used to say "the blues is a feeling," but this collection is proof that it's also a universal language. These 11 songs by musicians from South and North America, Europe, Asia, and Africa are a thoroughly enjoyable summation of the genre's ability to cut through cultural barriers to touch the heart. "Slide Blues" by Argentina's Botafogo could be a Delta relic if not for its Spanish lyrics. And singer Big Mama with harp man Victor Uris beautifully blur the lines between Catalonia and Chicago. The great pianist Otis Spann and the trio of Eric Bibb, Rory Block, and Maria Muldaur provide two straight-up shots of the style. The best tunes are outright cross-cultural collaborations.Read more

Putumayo always puts out a quality product, and this disc is no exception. The collection of salsa and latin rhythyms is a collection spanning several countries, but all of the tracks are lively upbeat and fun. several of the tracks include electronic elements, such as electric drumbeats and samples. This allows the listeners to see what is being done with a now classic genre to revitalize it. this new generation of Salseros breathes new life into a now-classic music style.
5-0 out of 5 stars TRULY A SENSATIONAL PIECE!
This music makes you want to get up and dance! The first few tracks are the best, but the whole CD is very good. I could not stop listening to son fro by africando and many more. Hide this CD because once you pop it in, your friends will never want to give it back to you. After owning gypsy caravan, afro-latino, afro latin party, salsa around the world, cuba and many more i have come to say that this is one of the best putumayo we have seen up to date.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the most beautiful pop records ever made
I'm listening to this disc as I write. I remember the first time I heard/saw it: wandering through a Sanborn's store in Mexico City -- I stopped cold and viewed the DVD on an instore TV for ten or fifteen minutes, absolutely captivated. Shortly thereafter, it was mine, as was the DVD (which adds a whole other dimension). I would put "Mana Unplugged" in my top twenty discs of all time. The group is the Mexican Beatles: writers of exquisite pop songs with heart, beautifully crafted, played with vigour and a little rock-n-roll swagger, and also a progressive political bent that comes through on songs like "Ana" and their terrific cover of Ruben Blades' "Desapariciones." The love songs, from "Vivir Sin Aire" to "El Muelle de San Blas" to "Rayando El Sol," are among the few that consistently bring tears to my eyes. And the playing has the attention to technique and subtlety that characterizes Latin music more than its North American or Western European equivalent. As an advantage for the non-Spanish speaker, the CD comes with translations of the lyrics of most of the songs. These lose some of the poetry, but at least let you know what's going on thematically. A magnificent, unmissable record. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A Delight!
Let me start out this review with two overwhelming generalizations, both of which, of course, have many exceptions. First, I really enjoy electronica music. Second, I don't care for Mexican music. Now, having said this, you can imagine my mixed feelings about reading a review (in the Wall Street Journal, as I recall) about an album of Mexican electronica by Nortec Collective entitled "Tijuana Sessions, Vol 3." The review was quite laudatory. My curiosity was piqued. I couldn't resist ordering the CD.
4-0 out of 5 stars A great album
I stumbled onto this album at eMusic as I subscribe to it. Thinking what do I have to lose as I hadn't heard anything about Nortec Collective. I was suprised to find quite an excellent album. It's a fusion of big electronic beats with traditional Mexican music. I guess their name Nortec comes from a combination of Norteno (meaning from the North) and techno, which basically is describing the two different musical worlds colliding.

Adem�s de la obvias mezclas no debemos olvidar que el norte�o es de por s� hijo de la polka alemana y el folcor mexicano, asi que bueno, este es un remix del mix de otro mix...

Editorial Review

With magnetic rhythms, cool grooves, and catchy hooks, the Mexican rock band Maná have conquered fans on both sides of the border. From the wickedly cool opener "Hechicera" to the pulsating "Un Lobo por Tu Amor," the tunes are easy to get into, regardless of whether you know Spanish or not. There's plenty of fun, too, on the rollicking "Tu Tienes Lo Que Quiero" and the zany "Clavado en un Bar," which became the tour anthem during the band's 1998 tour. Also bewitching are the romantic "En el Muelle de San Blas" and the achy love ode "Como Dueles en los Labios." The band is also daring, remembering political prisoners around the world on "Me Voy a Convertir en un Ave." Read more

Mana siempre me ha parecido una banda bastante aburrida, carente de gracia, cursi, poco innovadora, y por sobre todo cursi (lo repito porque es demasiado cursi), Aun asi debo reconocer que el baterista es un buen musico, toca bastante solidamente.
5-0 out of 5 stars This Album Is For Everyone
It's been almost seven years since Man� released this album, but I still think it's a great album. This band, in my opinion, has been the most successful Spanish rock band. They have tons of hits and every single one of their albums is a monster album with many hits. Man� also talk about many different kinds of things in their songs.
5-0 out of 5 stars comfy cd
This is my rainy day cd that I always play when I'm down, its raining, or I can't figure out what else to listen to. I love all the songs, especially "Muelle de San Blas". That song holds a special sound that has so much feeling. It feels like sweet sorrow, you don't even have to understand Spanish to feel this. It is a great cd with lots of emotional value. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars the voice of a Godess
All i had too do was to listen to the first track on this CD and i was hooked, this woman has the voice of a Godess, and the lyrics, wow incredible, my only wish now is to see her live in concert!!!!

4-0 out of 5 stars A lament for Mexican immigrants
BORDERS is dedicated to the Mexican migrants who struggle to cross the border into the US, and opens with a haunting contemporary lament in 'Mi Corazon Me Recuerda'.

My friend Maude from DC turned me onto this disc a couple of weeks ago during a brief visit and I was captivated after the first ten bars.Her recommendation is that the cd doesn't do Lila's voice justice after seeing her live.Until I have that experienceI won't challenge the point.All I have have is this recorded representation by which to judge.Ms Downs uses her remarkable voice to deliver the most heartfelt and moving performance top to bottom to have graced my ears in quite a while.She covers a variety of topics and genres with originality and power making me mindful of any number of wonderful chanteuses.I will definitely be out in search of more titles (explains why I am here now).I've read people referring to Lila as the modern day incarnation of Frida Kalo(I'm certainly not here to refute that) but within a musical context she may be this age's Joan Baez.Thanks for the tip Maude.Most of all, thank you Lila... ...
