Yet another great album by Amistades
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Rumor has it that this great duo will no longer be recording any new musical material. If this is true then it will be sad to see this happen. You see, this duo released their first album in the early 90's but it wasn't until the mid 90's that I discovered their music. After hearing their first cd "Relatos de Una Intriga," I was mesmerized. And afterwards I quickly went out to purchase their second and third albums, "La Ultima Tentacion" and "La Profecia," respectively. Now this latest, but hopefully not their final album has come to make part of "Amistades Peligrosas'" masterpieces. This album is composed of several different types of music: pop, polka, balads and new age. Probably this is why this album is named "Nueva Era." As if this spectacular music isn't great enough to make this an enjoyable cd, then we must also consider the lyrics. They are beautifully written, powerful yet at times moving. The lyrics range from different situations in life, which has been a trademark for "Amistades Peligrosas." As usual the religious themes are always present such as in "Apunta Dispara" which tells of mankind going to war only to feel abandoned by their "almighty savior, god." Then there is "Mas Circo y Mas Pan" which tells of how politicians cheat civilians, rob, and discriminate against foreigners. "Menina das Favelas" tells of a young servant girl that has never known what being a kid is about, she lives only to serve royalty. Finally there is "Quitame este Velo" which refers to women in the Middle East that must keep their bodies covered at all times, and their plea to feel free to be able to show their faces to the world. However, I am only giving my opinion and it would be best for those interested in different types of music to find out. Words are not enought to describe "Amistades Peligrosas" and their masterpieces, surely "Nueva Era" completes the circle of "Amistades Peligrosas'" great but underappreciated careers. Hopefully this duo's demise is only rumor and hopefully they may surprise us yet again with another masterpiece."
