Excellent and underappreciated - One of his best
(4 out of 5 stars)
"For whatever reasons (maybe the cheesy cover photo?) This album isn't one of Alex' that gets much attention, but it should. Sr. Fernandez actually outdoes Javier Solis with his interpretation of "Mentira." As on all of his albums, the instrumental accompaniment and arrangements are top-notch. This is a very smooth and romantic listen. It's amazing how strong and confident Alex' voice is here; He was in his early 20's when this was recorded, but his mastery of technique, epecially the way he conveys emotion and meaning with the lyrics sound more like the accomplishements of an artist at their peak. I know persons who don't speak a word of Spanish who have been seduced by the power of the voice alone. This is a natural and gifted talent. If you like Alejandro, you should have this album. If you haven't heard him yet, get "Que Seas Feliz" first, but do buy this one if you like that one."

"The 2nd release from the magnificent Alejandro, when he was 22, is wonderful. My favorites are "Cenizas", "Contigo Aprendi", and "Si No Eres Tu", but every track is excellent, with his glorious voice, passion and soul filling each song with life and beauty. I recommend getting this as part of the set "Mis Primeros Exitos". You'll get his first 3 recordings, individually wrapped, in a nice box, "A La Manera", his 3rd CD, is extraordinary, and shouldn't be missed !"

"It is never wise to judge a CD by it's cover. Alejandro Fernandez is simple a talented singer. He displays his talent in wonderful songs such as, "Piel de Nina", "No Estoy Triste", "Cenizas", "Hasta Donde Estes", "Metira, Metira", "Contigo Aprendi", and "Si No Eres Tu", among others. Well-rounded production, and a must for those "El Potrillo" listeners."
