CD Reviews

Beautiful music, terrific voice
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I grew up with a lot of the songs on this cd, and I have heard them performed by many artists through the years. I have NEVER heard a better or more powerful rendition of this wonderful music. This is by far the most exceptional album by Mijares, one that does justice to his incredible voice, and one where he does justice to some of the timeless songs of this century. I searched everywhere for this cd, including overseas, and I finally own a treasured copy. It is a privilege to listen to it, and the romanticism is heart-warming. Absolutely wonderful."

"The songs on this are the best of Mexican popular music from the forties and some more traditionals such as Cucurucucu and Malaguena. The arrangements are excellent with many updated.Mijares voice, although I don't know much about music, is most certainly a tenor. In the traditional songs he is able to hold the notes so long as is traditional in songs such as Malaquena. Captures the passion of musical ballads, you will feel it.A must have especially for those get togethers where you want people to dance. Great dancing music!!!!!And you won't be able to resist singing along. For those who just love Spanish language, Mijares' voice is understandable to extend the depth of language. I have had the album for years and play it often."
