"I am 24 years old and let me say that I have almost every CD of Marco Anotonio....I love him since his first songs back in the late 70's early 80's. I grew up listening to him at home. This man does have the heart, brains to compose some great songs. You really have to give him a lot of credit...there is very few people that can compose almost every single song on their CDs'. You can never go wrong with any of his CDs...I just don't listen to his music..I really pay attention to his writing, instruments that he uses and you can feel how much love and thought he puts into every song. There is always a song on all of his CDs' that you can identify yourself with. And of course you are always going to have your favorites and like one song more than the other ones. In this new CD....my favorite tracks are #1, 4, 8, 9, and 10. That doesn't mean I don't enjoy his other ones. Since he came out solo in 1996, I thought I was going to be dissapointed because I was thinking he was not going to be the same without the "Bukis." But he has done it once again...and I love it!! It's not that he is better...but it's just different and it's still great. This is his 5th CD as a solo artist and I truly enjoy and love them all. His music is so relaxing, and when you're in love...it's just wondeful to listen to. Since it all comes from his heart, that is why we feel it in our heart also. You just can't scan through it or "just listen". You really have to pay attention, listen to where he is coming from in every song and listen to the lyrics and that is when you'll appreciate his music. Good job Marco Antonio Solis...
... LIke they say "Music doesn't have boundaries"!"

"This is a strong and beautifully-balanced selection of Marco Antonio Solís' songs. And he is so smart -- after the hoopla over his "Si no te hubieras ido" on the soundtrack of the Mexican film "Y Tu Mamá Tambien" and the resultant conjecture about "crossover", his latest cd emphasizes the super-romantic traditional ballads, and lilting dance songs, that have long kept him atop the charts throughout Latin America, and in any other region where Latin Americans live. As "Tu Amor o tu desprecio" -- "Your love or your scorn" -- is being released, "el Buki Mayor" (Solís was for many years the lead singer/songwriter for "Los Bukis") is on a tour of the U.S., from whence he will return to perform throughout Mexico, and in other Latin American cities. When you hear this most recent cd, you'll find yourself dancing, and you'll see how Marco Antonio Solís concerts sell out all over the place, from Madison Square Garden to the huge bullrings and cockfighting arenas in Mexico, with such minimal marketing. You'll also want to look for the rest of his cd's, which demonstrate his impressive range as a singer-composer -- who has many awards to his credit, and has provided songs for countless other artists' albums. Try to catch his music videos, which definitely set a standard for high-quality production, and see him in concert if you can: his shows are fabulous, and the mutual admiration between Marco and his public is legendary. Being a teacher, and knowing that in his rare interviews Solís often credits his own teachers back in the Mexican state of Michoacán with teaching him determination, I'll also mention that his music always provides a great incentive, and a fun way, to learn Spanish. The liner notes for this cd provide all the lyrics to the ten songs, and fold out into a nice poster of the "guapíssimo" -- very handsome -- musician."

"Mas Que Tu Amigo, #7, was used as one of the main musical themes for the novella "Velo de Novia" and has a very catchy beat and rhythm. I bought the CD for the one cut, but have been pleasantly surprised by the spirit and life of the entire CD."
