"Lucia Mendez is one of the most gorgeous and gifted women in the entertainment industry today. She has had quite a colorful career with her acting, singing, and (early) modeling abilities.She could have easily crossed over to the U.S. market and have been a tremendous smash ! However, she is greatly respected by her fans for not "selling-out" and becoming another commercialized U.S. entertainer with no regards for the art but for the mighty dollar.In this long anticipated semi-anthology the listener gets a real good glimpse of her humbling beginnings singing classic rancheras and boleros to her mid 80's pop sound and contemporary settings. Corazon De Piedra (Heart of Stone)is a love theme from one of her more popular t.v. novelas from 1987 ( Tu O Nadie ?) which really gained her even more success and awards.It is a timeless classic with very beautiful lyrics and arrangement ( it almost has a romantic Italian sounding feel to it). The track Castigame is a more pop oriented tune with a catchy keyboard arrangement. With Lucia's voice you can always here the passion and emotion in her music;It's no act, but reality ! Some fans or newcomers may not take a liking to her early pop stuff less we remember that the 80's (no matter what language) was full of "dance-candy music". Still, the other traditional gems hold up very well !..."
