CD Reviews

Su musica reta cualquier comparacion posible
Manny Hernandez | Bay Area, CA | 06/22/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Al escuchar su album "Bueninvento" (quiero aclarar que este es mucho mejor en mi opinion) me pasaban por la mente los nombres de Andrea Echeverri (Aterciopelados) y Ana Torroja (Mecano). Ahora que escucho este album, pienso en interpretes del calibre de Tori Amos, Paula Cole y Alanis Morrissette. Y la verdad es que la musica, letras y canto de de Julieta Venegas, una bella mujer originaria de Tijuana, Mexico, retan cualquier comparacion posible.Algunos datos, para que se convenzan: compuso letra y musica de casi todos los temas del album; canta con dejo bien particular, casi "brincadito" pero sin resultar jamas chocante; interpreta el piano (instrumento fundamental a lo largo del album) asi como el acordeon y el vibrafono (en su siguiente album, toca guitarra); sus letras tienen un profundo sentido social, y son super interesantes a la vez.Tantas cosas se pueden decir de Julieta Venegas, y en particular de su album debut, "Aqui," que lo mejor que puedo hacer es recomendarselo casi a ciegas. El album, con una exquisita produccion del gran Gustavo Santaolalla y la colaboracion de numerosos talentos del Rock Mexicano, va creciendo dentro de uno, a medida que uno lo va descubriendo: yo lo compre hace un par de semanas, y no puedo dejar de escucharlo!"
REFRESHING LYRICS AND INTERESTING USE OF THE ACCORDEON.
Manny Hernandez | 08/05/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"AS A FOLLOWER OF ROCK IN SPANISH, YOU CAN EASILY GET USED TO A LOT OF THE SAME, THIS CD OFFERS SEVERAL REFRESHING INNOVATIONS. FIRST OF ALL THIS IS A YOUNG WOMAN AND ALTOUGH THAT WITHIN ITSELF IS NOTHING NEW. WHAT IS NEW IS THE FACT THAT SHE DOESN'T TRY TO IMITATE WHAT HAS ALREADY BEEN DONE BY ANOTHER SUCCESSFUL BAND, SHE DOESN'T TRY TO SNEAK IN TO THE MUSIC SCENE WITH A WARM & FUZZY ALBUM, SHE COMES RIGHT AT YOU AND LETS YOU KNOW EXACTLY HOW SHE FEELS AND THINKS. ANOTHER INTERESTING DETAIL ABOUT THIS ALBUM IS THE FACT THAT SHE WRITES AND COMPOSES HER OWN MUSIC, WHICH AGAIN GIVES HER THE FREEDOM TO TAKE YOU ON HER JOURNEY NOT ONLY WITH HER WORDS, BUT ALSO BY PAINTING HER OWN BACKGROUNDS WITH THE MUSIC. HER USE OF THE ACCORDEON IN MUSIC OTHER THAN REGIONAL TEXAN MUSIC IS ALSO NOTEWORTHY. SOMETHING THAT CAUGHT MY ATTENTION WAS THE FACT THAT THE MEXICAN MEDIA RUSHED TO LABEL HER MUSIC AS ROCK. IN SHORT, I THINK THIS IS THE BEST DEBUT I HAVE HEARD IN A LONG TIME, AND! SHOULD NOT TO BE MISSED."
Raw, original, strong, sultry, witty...

"The best, in my opinion out of her 4 CDs.
I was initially going to rate it a 4 out of 5 stars, but who am I kidding, I have been listening to this CD continuously for years. I drop it and pick it up again!
Julieta is a one-of-a-kind gem from Mexico, but trandescends languages."
