CD Reviews

Fun and Festive

"A Latino friend of mine turned me on to this disc a few years ago, and still, to this day, I haven't tired of it. Once you get past the schmaltzy arrangements (the intro to each of the medleys sounds like it should be in a gay porno) and synthesizers, you too may be hooked on RAICES.
Each track is a lenghty medley from a different country or region, and Julio Iglesias, ever the consumate enteratainer, must be commended for singing in all these different languages.
The songs are catchy, even if you may hear only 30 seconds of it. In fact, as I type this review, I can't seem to get out of my head "addios, linda morena, addios, linda morena....linda...."
Even if the Italian medley misses the mark ever so slightly, the others completely make up for it. You'll be amazed at how well Julio even sings in French. His "Et Maitenant" is a real stand-out here.
This is the perfect disc to put on when you are entertaining, throwing a party, bbq'ing, etc. I have turned many on to this disc and highly recommend it."
Saved my sanity - Wonderful, wonderful album.

"My daughter had a brain hemhorrage and I listened to this album 24 hours a day for weeks. The music kept me focused on something with an upbeat and truly wonderful sound. My daughter is doing great and thanks to Julio Igelsius, so am I."
A Must Have!

"If you love to travel and love learning about different cultures, this CD allows you to feel like you are right there. This copulation of different ethnic songs actually makes you want to travel to these exotic and romantic countries like Spain, Italy and France. So don't wait...pack your bags and don't forget to bring your CD!"
