Some of the best lyrics I've ever heard...
A. Ort | Youngstown, Ohio | 02/04/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you are experiencing angst, on the verge of a breakthrough you can not quite put into words, get this album. It may just take you there. Powerful, powerful stuff.

I am not sure if Ms. Napolitano made the transition but this is an album to be experienced. Rip roarin' powerful music. Love Is A Blind Ambition is pure poetry. Jonestown will send your head into a dither. At the end of Jenny I Read you will have experienced Jenny's journey.

I have never been so moved by an album as this one. Raw passion. Anger. Deliverance. Ecstasy. It's all there. The guitar will jangle in your ear, the sound effects will send your eyeballs spinning and Johnette's vocal range, from sultry growl to angry howls, will pierce your heart. Pop on your headphones and be transported.

Listening to this last night I realize I've since moved on in terms of how I relate to this album but it is still by far one of the best, and perhaps most underrated, album that I have come across."
Musical intensity

"If you're looking for rock music that refuses to indulge in cliches, soften its edges or resort to aimless jamming, this album is for you. I heartily agree with a previous reviewer, who expressed his incredulity that Concrete Blonde never attained greater recognition or popularity. And of the half dozen or so superior albums that the group released, "Mexican Moon" is, in my opinion, the best.

Any discussion of the band has to begin with J. Napolitano's incredible voice, and she establishes its power from the first track, "Jenny I Read," a vocal and instrumental performance delivered with astonishing dramatic intensity.

Napolitano's vocals serve as a perfect complement to the searing instrumental delivery of the band on "Heal It Up," "One of My Kind," and, most memorably, "I Call It Love," which should be listened to closely today.

This album -- and this group -- isn't afraid to expose raw feeling, anger and cynicism, but it also can show a softer side, as on the title cut. The lyricism of the latter shows it's possible to recognize the beauty in life without sacrificing the edge that all of us develop from life in the rough-and-tumble world."
The passion and poetry one should experience is on this CD.

"This is album is one of true transport. Johnette shows us all her fabulous diveristy in her poetic styles. The english vs. the spanish version of Mexican Moon will leave you breathless. Rain, Love is a Blind Ambition, I Call It Love, and Heal It Up lend us a view into the pain of a genius mind. A pain and passion we all share. This album is simply put, fantastic and a must hear for anyone. If you have never heard this band before, this is the album to start with. Once you hear the beauty and pure poetry of the lyrics, I can promise, that you will be hooked to this band."
