"I have been a fan of Luis Miguel's for decades and applaud him for his ever-maturing voice, showmanship and the fact that in this world of "let- 'em-hang-off-your-***" pants and gruff exteriors, he's man enough to wear a suit and tie, arguably proving better than anyone that dressing like a gentleman is sexy. However, this CD was the worst I've ever had the unfortunate displeasure to hear. I notice that "Directo Al Corazon" is not even offered as an audio sample on this website. Why doesn't that surprise me? Because I have the heard the recordings from "Romantico Desde Siempre" and "Directo..." sounds as if it is being sung by a VERY young child. Alas, I did not purchase a CD with a picture of Luis Miguel as a child on the cover. In fact, the cover deceptively displays an apparently non-childlike silhouette of Luis Miguel (I wonder if Luis refused to show his face on the cover, hiding himself in the shadows due to his probable embarassment over these recordings). The singer of "Directo..." (I cannot believe it is Luis Miguel) sounded like Alvin the Chipmunk or a pre-teen Osmond (take your pick). It was quite disconcerting to say the least. I am giving this CD one star, just for the belly-laugh I had (after I got over the initial shock, of course) after listening to "Directo...", but I'm thoroughly unhappy with the deceptive marketing technique employed with respect to the packaging. I suppose one should not judge a book (or a recording) by its cover."

"I don't understand how those who reviewed the album call themselves admirers of Luis miguel's work. I have listened to his music for almost 20 years and I can tell you that the reason this was not satisfying for them was because the songs on this album are from when Luis Miguel was 9 until about 15 or 16 years old. His Voice has changed since then but the whole point is to show you that he has been a hopeless romantic since he was a young child. Pay attention to the songs and you'll get the album title. It is a collection of his early work and if you are truly his admirer you will appreciate this album."

"If you're looking for Luis, this is not the cd. It is his music, but he's not singing it. Stay away from this unless you don't care for his voice. I really don't even know who all was singing."
