Editorial Review

Julio Iglesias--he of the endearing Latin accent, endless-summer suntan, and stunning charisma--could make "Mary Had a Little Lamb" sound sexy, so it's no surprise that the 11 selections here smolder with the approximate heat of high noon in his native Madrid. What may be surprising to longtime listeners, though, is the range of songs he chose to cover. While "It's Impossible," the Perry Como hit with the famously pretty-sad melody, comes across an obvious choice and benefits from a swooning yet sure-footed performance, two Foreigner classics, "I Want to Know What Love Is" and "Waiting for a Girl Like You," seem somehow beneath our debonair ladykiller. Still, smothered by his signature passion, they play like entirely new songs--less earnest and searching, more insistent and sweet. Such is the case with Richard Marx's "Right Here Waiting" and, to some extent, the Cars' "Drive"; instead of sounding like lite-FM retreads, they become heated extensions of his Julio-ness. Older hits--"This Guy's in Love with You," "The Most Beautiful Girl"--benefit from a certain effortlessness; these are numbers pre-dipped in the knee-weakening romance Julio specializes in. Overall, it's a modern/classic commingling that proves what millions of women worldwide have suspected for decades: where practitioners of pulse-quickening, fantasy-fueling vocals are concerned, there is no equal.

4-0 out of 5 stars Effortless Passion
There's something irresistible about Julio Iglesia's singing.He exudes an effortless passion of romance in nearly every song he touches.It's no surprise that finally he has released an album concentrating solely on romantic tunes.However, at first glance, some of his choices might seem out of character.With two Foreigner songs, "I Want To Know What Love Is" and "Waiting For A Girl Like You", Julio injects dreamy casualness that begs a listen from worldly lovers.Harry Nilsson's "Everybody's Talking" has a spirited freshness and the Bee Gees, "How Can You Mend A Broken Heart?" is a completely new interpretation.There might be a temptation to classify these songs as pure elevator backtracks, but Iglesia never falters in his quality.The only question here is why it took him so long to produce an album concentrating solely on romantic classics.There is no doubt there will be a follow up and his fans are already anxiously waiting.

5-0 out of 5 stars He never fails to amaze me.
How can you not love this man,his voice is so romantic and this cd is superbly produced.I have the Japan Version with an extra track and the sound quality is astonishing...highly recommended.

4-0 out of 5 stars Si es Julio...es Bueno!
Hablar de Julio Iglesias es referirse a la leyenda más grande de la música latina de todos los tiempos, el artista que ha roto los records, que ha sido primero en todo, ejemplo de constancia, disciplina y dedidación, la estrella a seguir por cualquiera que desee llevar una fructifera carrera.

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.

3-0 out of 5 stars Tu es mejor en espanol
I love Shakira and have listened to her for years, but honestly she sounds so much better when singing in spanish. I am not a fluent speaker of spanish, but you can tell she has more feeling for the songs she writes and sings in spanish, than those in english. This album is good, but not her best. Hightlights on this album are Hips Don't Lie, and the re mix of La Tortura. I would recommend her first album, Fijacion Oral 1 over this.

1-0 out of 5 stars She has lost her unique identity
The question is: What has happened to Shakira? Where are her familiar, latin, explosive songs? This album has nothing that gives it an original Shakira identity, it's more like Shakira is trying too hard to lose her latina tamperament and become another Cristina Anguilera. I listened to the album once and afterwards could not remember the tune of a single song! The only interesting track is 'Don't bother' where the music is fine but the lyrics are so uninspirational! Furthermore, I'm getting a bit tired of seeing her in every single music video throwing liquids on her body and shaking her hips. Especially when you try to be a rocker, this nonsense a la Jessica Simpson seem so cheap, like you're trying to market yourself, not the music. Plus, she repeatedly 'thickens' her voice which sounds pretentious and at the end of the day, bad.
5-0 out of 5 stars Hits Don't Lie?
When i first purchased Shakira's Oral Fixation vol. 2, i was of course skeptical about what i was getting myself into.I purchased Laundry Service back in 2001 so i was hoping to hear a continuation of Laundry Service.Boy was i wrong and i must say, im glad i am.Laundry Service was an overall adequate listen, nothing memorable besides Whenever Wherever and Underneath your clothes.The first song of VOL. 2, "How Do You do" is so great!The raw beauty that comes out of this womans voice is just compeling yet at times i find myself wishing i could understand some of the stuff she says. I find her pronunciation confussing and tiring at times but with repeated listens to the entire album, i have found that it takes some getting used to.Once you get over the fact that Shakira's voice is unusual, you will see that her voice is a wonderful passionate instrument on its own.

I love the music. Great for dinner and it makes you want to go out dancing. So fun, creative and lively. I wish there were more out there like this one! I love "El Cuarto de Tulo" and "Candela". Even if you aren't a dancer, I dare you- try and sit still with this playing! It'll make you feel like you're on vacation.

I watched this documentary on IFC a month ago, and while the credit were running I was on amazon ordering the CD. I have played it almost everyday. This is wonderful, even my 16 year old think its good, after I told im the backgound of the band, he was amazed. This is a must for music lovers.

Ilove this album.It has become on of my new favorites of all time.Better than the original Bowie to me.

5-0 out of 5 stars Gut Wrenching Chillers, All of 'Em.
I loved Wes Anderson's The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou.I saw the movie three times while it was in theaters and still could not get enough.Seu Jorge's character brought so much to the movie and I was a little disappointed that the soundtrack did not have all of his versions of our beloved David Bowie.The Bowie songs are great.The Jorge songs are great.I could listen to either one for hours on end and still not get sick of hearing them.Knowing the Bowie versions well also is a thrill when you hear this album because it surprises your ears with unexpected turns in tone and acoustic sounds.A definite necessity for any beach BBQ, I highly recommend this album.

5-0 out of 5 stars If you love acousticor portuguese then you love this...
I love acoustic guitar and my husband is 100% portuguese so what could be better. I doesn't hurt that I love David Bowie too. Seu Jorge's voice is hauntly beautiful and the songs are great. Since I don't speak portuguese I don't know how close the translation is but the songs are still great. We played the CD at work for weeks. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent
It is as good as expected and more. All the songs are great, maybe with the exception of 6. Escondite Ingles. My personal favorites are 2. La Pared 7. No and 8. Las de la Intuicion. If you like Shakira this is a must have, especially for those that loved her previous spanish language albums.

4-0 out of 5 stars Not perfect but Shakira's voice makes it great
Shakira is brilliant.Not only does she produce and write her own material, she sings in what I describe as the music business female sex's most unique bleat.Usually my reviews come from a third person perspective (since any critic knows that's the best way to approach a review), but it's hard to describe Shakira's musings without inserting my personal feelings and opinions toward and about it."La Tortura" is the biggest hit here, of course, and deservedly so.It's simply the best Latin pop song to come along in a long time.The beat, the poetic lyrics and that voice all combine to produce one awesome track.Fijacion Oral is a mismash of genres and, unfortunately, only a couple songs can even come close to approaching the instant smash "La Tortura" is.Opener "En Tus Pupilas" (featured on the later Oral Fixation album in English) is decent and sounds somewhat European."La Pared" is one of Fijacion's better moments."Las De La Intuicion" is the record's second best track with its disco-infused melody and charge-forward beat."Lo Imprescindible" use of thundering drums adds rock flavor to Fijacion while "Dia De Enero" is girlish fun.Though I prefer the English language Oral Fixation to the Spanish Fijacion Oral, with each listen this record just keeps getting better and better.

3-0 out of 5 stars The English Oral Fixation is better
Colombian rock goddess Shakira is quite the performer.The talented hip-shaker extraordinaire gives an impassioned performance in her trademark throaty-and-nasal bleat over the course of 12 addictive Spanish language tracks that make up Fijacion Oral Vol. 1.The standout here is, of course, the No. 1 global smash "La Tortura" featuring sexy call-and-response dialogue with Latin singer Alejandro Sanz ("La Tortura" is also presented in a remixed format but sits far below its original mix).The opener (featured in English on the later English language Oral Fixation Vol. 2) "En Tus Pupilas" is soft and sensual with its European-influenced mystique and chordal Spanish guitar, but unfortunately it's not one of Fijacion Oral's most memorable moments (aforementioned "La Tortura" holds that spot deservedly) and could keep listeners from delving deeper into the complex and individual workings of the remainder of the album.The bleaterrific "La Pared" showcases Shakira's rich and unique vocals, and is offered up in both original and acoustic versions."Lo Imprescindible" officially closes the record with its thundering drums and incredibly rock-oriented rhythm and beats.In the end, it's an interesting listen with few highs, but the English language Oral Fixation Vol. 2 is much more consistent and likable. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Two Monsters Creating Beauty
I had the opportunity to see them live on their only presentantion at the National Theater in Santo Domingo this past 29th of September.These two artists play together as if they were Heart & Lungs.Following Camilo with the piano is like Mission Imposible but Tomatito, without hesitation, follows in a way that it merges its flamenco roots with Camilo's caribbean beat...the funny part is that they also play tangos.Both are legends.This fusion is the pure definition of music pleasure.This is a MUST HAVE CD in your Jazz, New Age, Lounge, Caribbean, Flamenco or Tango music collection.

5-0 out of 5 stars Don'tmiss this one!
If you love deliciously involving music, when fingers of time stroke your subconsious, and you feel moved to keep time with your whole body, this is the music for you!It is pure delight, complicated and complex, simple and direct, like love with notes!
5-0 out of 5 stars Triumphant again
Spain was a triumph in Jazz. Both Michel Camillo and Tomatito are stars in their field. As a pianist Camillo is one of the most distinct voices of his generation. Both bold and tender, at the same time robust and subtle. A voice recognized out of many. The same goes for Tomatito. His work on the flamenco guitar is one that is seldom approached by other players. When both man teamed up for Spain they sounded like a match made in heaven. Tomatito and Camillo sounded as if they had been playing together for years. Spain left you desperate for more.

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.

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.

4-0 out of 5 stars I can do my laundry service any day!
Shakira was right to call this "Laundry Service". Hearing the opening number "Objection" always makes me feel like I just bought this CD yesterday. This my first and only Shakira CD with English and it is refreshing tohear it every time. She has her fair share of hits on here that I can surely hear over and over, like "Whenever, Wherever" and "Eyes Like Yours". This is a pretty unusual crossover CD, containing both English and her native Spanish. Clearly, she finds it easier in her own language, evident in songs like "Suerte" and "Que Me Quedes Tu". Her English is a bit choppy, but people won't buy music from a Spanish singer to bask in their English. Her voice makes it difficult to listen sometimes, as in "Underneath Your Clothes" and "The One", and I feel that "Fool" and "Poem to a Horse" are positioned well yet often overlooked as many Shakira fans are lured to more her scantily clad dance videos than rocking songs about how her "heart is sore". As for me, I hope that the clothes in this cycle never dry out!

1-0 out of 5 stars La Voz De ShakiraMe Hace Vomitar
Where do I start? This is awful. "Underneath Your Clothes" sounds too much like Alanis Morrisette's "Head Over Feet." "Whenever, Wherever" sounds much better in the Spanish-version "Suerte" and the video to that was alright. The rest of the songs sound like 1980's leftovers retrieved from the trash. Other than that, Shakira sounds absolutely dreadful. It's like hearing someone scratching their nails down a chalkboard. This chick doesn't know if she wants to emulate Jewel, Alanis Morrisette, or Britney Spears.But I guess she was like, "F*** it! I'll sound like all three!" and all you get is chaos. You can't even tell what kind of emotion Shakira is trying to express in a song because her voice is so messed up. "Laundry Service" sucks and "Oral Fixation" Vol. 1 and 2 are even worse. Shakira's easy on the eyes but she's killer on the ears. She needs to dye her back to its original black color and take some singing lessons. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Disapointing
I think David Bisbal should stick with his roots, the flamenco/pop he does like no other.This album is more rock, typical music of today, nothing like the different sounds that his two first albums brought. I don't find the same enthusiastic David as in previous songs. His ballads are boring, and the rest of the album is dull and very predictable.I love this singer, but I think he should stick to the best tallent he has, and that is to bring his roots to the forefront and keep the rock music to the rockers.I don't care for rock, perhaps that's why I don't like this album, but I truly don't think it's going to catch on like the other two he did."Torre de Babel" is great though, it's David Bisbal singing and doing what he does best, flamenco/pop, original and different. I was anticipating this album, now I'm just sorry I bought it....good thing it was on sale, that should say something about it, it's not selling well if only after 2 weeks of being out, it's already being discounted.I hope his next is flamenco/pop otherwise, he'll lose this fan.

5-0 out of 5 stars outstanding!(more rock than pop)
this CD is fantastic. i usually love david's voice singing ballads (which this CD has), but there are more rock tracks here than on his others. the tunes are great; his voice is so strong, he carries them all very well. some reggaeton and an indian flair thrown in; a little of everything. should win some new fans (as if he didn't have enough already?).

5-0 out of 5 stars Another great CD, hace bailar mi corazon gitana
If you love David Bisbal, you have another winner in this new CD. Premonicion has something for everyone from the emotional ballads that he sings so well, to the pop rock that gets everyone's feet moving. My favorite is Torre Babel. (Hace mi corazon gitana brincar y bailar con alegria!) It features David Bisbal at his very best singing his fusion of flamenco and Indian rhythms with reggeton! David has personally contributed to this album and the lyrics make many very strong statements about the artist himself and the world. If you are fan of David Bisbal, you won't be disappointed in this CD. ... Read more

This CD is not similar to any of MM's previous albums because it consists solely of samba carioca.There are no emotionally charged or heart-wrenching MPB songs.But this is samba carioca and one shouldn't expect such an atmosphere.As is, it is a very well recorded samba album and, most importantly, is well-suited for dancing samba.Also, please note that MM has sung plenty of samba carioca throughout her career to good effect.For example, see Para Ver As Meninas from her album Memorias, Cronicas, e Declaracoes de Amor, a lovely samba that would fit in very well on this album.Recommended for those who enjoy samba carioca.

3-0 out of 5 stars Don't know how to adjust to this album
I really hate to write this, but I really don't know what to make of this album.I have always loved every single album she has made, (including border girl), and I just don't know what to make of this one.I mean some songs are ok, but for the most part I went thru the album and did not get the feeling I got when I did the same with Paulina, PauLatina, 24Kilates, El Tiempo es Oro, etc . . .Maybe some remixes or bonus tracks will help this album.I still like it, its just definitely my least liked Paulina alum.I think Paulina let someone else take control of production rather than doing it herself.I will just wait for the next one. ...

Editorial Review

A bridge between bossa nova and 1960s pop, Sergio Mendes' music was easy listening, vaguely psychedelic pop, light jazz, and bossa nova all rolled into one. Mendes and Brasil '66 (which featured Mendes on keyboards and a revolving cast of two female vocalists, bass, guitar, drums and percussion) had a number of hits from the mid-'60s to the early-1970s that are included here. Getting his professional start playing and arranging for Antonio Carlos Jobim and Joao Gilberto, Mendes typically filled out his proper albums with updated versions of popular songs written by the Brazilian masters as well as some of his own tunes ­ his tunes "Look Around" and "So Many Stars" are included. But this collection really surveys his interpretations of pop tunes of the day, some of which were never hits for Mendes. The small combo's light touch and rich vocal harmonies make for pleasant if kitschy covers of hits like the Beatles' "Fool On The Hill" and "Day Tripper," Burt Bacharach's "The Look Of Love," and others. ­ Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A welcome blast from the past.
Some of the cuts on "Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66--Greatest Hits" sound as fresh as they did 40 years ago. Others sound dated, though charmingly so. The Brazilian originals fare best--"Mais Que Nada" is guaranteed to get your hips and your day swinging, and "Like a Lover" is incredibly sexy, soothing, and mellow. The pop standards are more a matter of taste, though "The Look of Love" is still one of the best recordings ever of any Bacharach-David song. Occasionally an otherwise impeccable cut will betray its vintage; the lovely bossa nova tune "So Many Stars" is marred by a brief harpsichord solo, reminding us all why the harpsichord craze of the '60s did not survive the decade. One thing that mars this CD is the lack of any songwriter credits--I guess A&M assumes everyone knows who wrote these songs, but it would still be nice to have the credits! I'm glad Mendes is having renewed success with his recent collaboration with rap artists, but I'm of a generation that will be happy sticking with this CD.

4-0 out of 5 stars Lively beats and beautiful melodies
Glad I found this blast from the past.While I've tired of hearing Beatles songs I don't get tired of their versions.And "Like a Lover" is one of my favorite lovesongs.Wish there

Editorial Review

In an era when elaborate wordplay and adventurous production were the order of the day, Herb Alpert made an impact barely uttering a word or breaking a mold, other than expanding the commercial parameters for pop instrumentalists. Dashing trumpeter Alpert and his Tijuana Brass scored five top-20 hits between 1962 (when "The Lonely Bull" climbed to No. 11 in the U.S.) and 1968 (when the vocal-driven "This Guy's in Love with You" cracked the top 10), racking up five No. 1 albums over the same period. The group's patented "Ameriachi" sound made up in south-of-the-border sprightliness what it lacked in innovation; the likes of "Spanish Flea" and "Casino Royale" possessed the kind of unshakable hooks that fit perfectly on top-40 radio sandwiched between Nancy Sinatra and the Mamas & the Papas. This 20-track overview serves up 13 selections from the Tijuana Brass's heyday and is rounded up with seven Alpert solo selections, including comeback hits from 1979 ("Rise") and '87 ("Diamonds").

5-0 out of 5 stars If you like great music, this should be in your collection
I like all kinds of music and every genre has its bests.Herb Alpert is one of the best.Most of the songs are instrumentals and if you are not a fan of instrumentals you would do yourself a disservice if you skipped this.The trumpets are the vocals but to say that the songs are just about the trumpets does not take in to consideration the complexity of the arrangements.
5-0 out of 5 stars kenneth's review
I love the music of herb alpert and this album is no exception.It is a hit with me.

4-0 out of 5 stars The 'Kenny G' of the Trumpet
I bought this CD to relive the memories of the music I grew up listening to in the mid/late-1970s, not too long after I was born.As the title for my review here implies, Herb Alpert is the Kenny G of the Trumpet!I am especially a fan of both "A Taste of Honey", "Mexican Shuffle", and "Route 101".In addition, at one time "A Taste of Honey" served as the opening theme music for a local morning AM Radio talk show in Hot Springs, AR, which I once used to listen to on a regular basis.Anyway, this CD for the most part is a good buy for those of you who like Spanish-style pop Trumpet music.

Editorial Review

This album pairs one of the greatest flamenco singers of today, cantaor Diego El Cigala, with one of Cuba's finest Afro-Cuban pianists, Bebo Valdes. With Valdes (father of the great Chucho Valdes) born in 1918, there's a 40-year age difference between the pianist and the singer, but they do a fine job crossing generations and oceans to discover the commonalities between Caribbean and the Iberian music, coming up with a romantic marriage of the two cultures using rumbas, guajira, sons and boleros. All the songs are classics out of the Latin music tradition, using just a handful of players in support. Valdes's fingers are delicate and prone to dramatic flourishes; Cigala's voice is pure flamenco in its hoarse intonation, cadence and emotional outpourings. The two masters make the union work by focusing on the drama of the love songs--"Veinte Años," "Inolvidable" and the title track are just three amazing examples--as fuel for some of the most exquisitely passionate music to come out in ages.--Read more

I had not bought one of Marc's albums in a while and the playlist looked good, so i bought it, and to my surprise ITS ONE OF MY FAV cds.
5-0 out of 5 stars Nice Collection of Marc Anthony Classics
Forget JLo, and the tabloid press, and just listen to the beauty of Marc Anthony's voice. He shines particularly on the pure hot salsa numbers. The ballads are all a little saccharine with all those violin strings, but the voice is still magic. It's a mystery why the songs in Spanish are always superior to the ones in English. Perhaps English just isn't a very romantic language. Anyhow, if you are looking for arrangements that have the big horn section power of Sinatra and the masculine voice to match, don't go buy Harry Connick Jr., give Marc Anthony a try.

Editorial Review

Her father may be the legendary Brazilian guitarist Joao Gilberto, but in 2000 daughter Bebel proved that she understands the bossa nova, too. There's a subtlety throughout this recording that makes Bebel's voice entrancing, as she re-creates the sensual essence of bossa nova before running with it into electronic territory toward the album's end.

When this album first came out in 1999,I first saw it at Starbucks coffee shops. I dismissed it as snooze-inducing easy listening,perfect for the background of sipping an overpriced latte.
5-0 out of 5 stars Very good music
Best album in my collection.Good job Bebel I'm looking forward to your next album.

5-0 out of 5 stars I Love It
I know little about Brazilian music, Bossa Nova or Latin music in general, but I really like this. This is the most beautiful non English speaking music I have ever heard. The perfect intro to contemporary Brazillian tunes. Bebel is relaxed jazz stuff with upbeat sounds, different from the everyday music you normally hear. I just finished reading a few of the negative reviews and I just don't understand them. This CD is one of the few that I own where all the songs are really great. This album brings together so many different musical styles, but it doesn't feel contrived or over produced. The elements and songs flow so smoothly, effortlessly. "August Day Song" is a sexy, song with deep Afro-Cuban beats and sounds like a hot summers day. My favorite CD at the moment.
