In the '90s singer Juan Gabriel emerged as Mexico's finest living songwriter of the folkloric genre, specifically, the ranchera. The ultimate master is still the late José Alfredo Jimenez. Here Gabriel delivers another two-CD set of his live performances, very similar to his 1990 En el Palacio de Bellas Artes. The differences: six fewer songs and fewer of his earlier hits like "Hasta Que Te Conoci." Still Gabriel manages to connect with his irrepressible charm and a great cast that includes top string and horn players. Repeat-button faves include his classic "Costumbres" and, of course, his "Amor Eterno," perhaps the most eloquent ode to a lost love. "Amor Eterno" has been covered handsomely by the likes of Rocio Durcal and Vicente Fernandez, and in Gabriel's hands here, it is transformed into a solemn prayer. --Ramiro Burr
ESPECTACULARMENTE EL MEJOR

"Para todos los mexicanos es un orgullo contar con un compositor de la clase de Juan Gabriel, sin duda junto con José Alfredo Jimenez, los dos más grandes compositores de nuestra música. Pero aun mejor es el sentimiento y el encanto que pone a sus interpretaciones, no se puede escuchar una de sus canciones sin entrar con el mismo sentimiento que el lo hace. _uno vive su música como la propia vida. Y que mejor manera de celebrar 25 años deleintandonos, que con el Glorioso marco del Palacio de Bellas Artes, que esta mandado hacer para él. JUAN GABRIEL IS THE BEST MEXICAN COMPOSER, AND HIS SINGLES ARE BEAUTIFUL."
Gabriel's finest work

""Celebrando 25 Anos de Juan Gabriel . . ." exemplifies Juan Gabriel's outstanding talent. The only thing that's better is his video of the same title. Gabriel is absolutely electric before an audience. His upbeat tunes with snappy background vocals are nothing short of thrilling. The melancholy songs, especially those with Mariachi, are heart-breaking. All of the music is fresh, even "No Tengo Dinero," the song that started him on the road to legendary status 30 years ago. His voice becomes a little hoarse during the last couple numbers making "Te Recuerdo Dulcemente," the closing song, sound delightfully mournful. This live performance is Gabriel's finest work. Ever."
