The one fans have been waiting for !

"This is an excellent CD, with Alejandro's rich, velvety voice sounding great and the musicianship throughout superb.
There are some terrific tracks..."Tantita Pena" with its flamenco feel, 2 marvelous Manuel Monterrosas songs, "¡ Ay Amor !" and "¿Donde Vas Tan Sola ?"..."Duerme Tranquila" which is sung with so much heart and soul, and "Pajaro Perdido" with its tropical sound and lovely flute melody.
There are some other songs that lean towards a modern "pop" sound...but I much prefer the more traditional rancheras, which I find musically stronger.I have 2 peripheral complaints:
# 1: After 8 minutes of silence, you get a "hidden track". A cute idea but can be somewhat annoying, especially in a car (I make it a rule not to drive and fiddle with stereo knobs !).
# 2: The packaging. It's awful. Impractical. No song list on the back of the jewel case, not even on the back of the booklet, which is almost unreadable, with yellow and orange on black, in a "fancy font".
But I'm quibbling folks...this is a really good it...after you've bought "Que Seas Muy Feliz"..."Entre Tus Brazos"..."Me Estoy Enamorando"...the "Mis Primeros Exitos" box set...and well, why not buy them all !"
Alejandro is the best

"This CD is one of his best so far. I hope some of these songs will become classics like "Como Quien Pierde Una Estrella", etc. To me they already are simply because they are performed by the incomparable Alejandro Fernandez. I saw him perform some of these songs on Sunday in concert with his Father (the great Vicente Fernandez, el Rey de la Musica Mexicana) and I had to get the CD. These two men Vicente and Alejandro Fernandez are to me two of the greatest singers the world have ever seen, and they are my two favorite singers. Please buy this disc, it is worth your money to hear the beautiful vocals and music."
A Great and Peculiar Production...

"Alejandro Fernandez has said many times that he is always looking for "new sounds". We can see this on his musical productions, from "Muy Dentro De Mi Corazon" (mariachi/traditional) to "Me Estoy Enamorando" (boleros) to "Mi Verdad"(mariachi/traditional) to "Entre Tus Brazos" (pop), and finally "Origenes". The CD starts of with the nice sounding single "Tantina Pena" which heavily borrows flamenco sounds and rythms. The very talented poet/composer Fato made excellent contributions with the beautiful "Si Tu No Vuelves" and the inspiring "Duerme Tranquila" which adds that romantic-pop flavor to "Origenes". Beautiful lyrics coupled with rythm is savored with "Amor De Luna" and while a very poetic and sentimental "Come Pez En El Agua" adds a gracious touch to this production. The more traditional Mexican sounds are also found in the contributions made by the talented composer that is Manuel Monterrosas with "Ay Amor", the highly-rythmic and beautifully composed "Donde Vas Tan Sola" and "Tu Regresaras". Another welcomed contribution is by Roberto Cantoral with "Jamas Te Vi Tan Linda", which is truly an inspiring piece. Overall, this musical production is a gem and quite peculiar. With different sounds and great musical interpretation by Alejandro, it is a definite addition to any music lover."
