CD Reviews

Caminando: Ruben Blades is Brilliant
Erik Holladay | Texas, USA | 08/12/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I love good Salsa music. Panamanian Ruben Blades is my favorite Salsa Artist. 'Caminando' has some of the best original Salsa, in my opinion, that Blades has ever created in his brilliant career.If you like the superb latin music Blades makes, you need this CD in your collection.Several songs in this CD are among the best he has ever produced, in my opinion. 'Tengan Fe' has a strong and energetic horn, rhythm combination that drives hard and fast while Blades soars above with an artful but strong vocal. It's a fantastic piece.'Prohibido Olvidar' is one of the most political, humorous and thoughtful Salsa songs Blades has produced. If you have an aversion to tolitarian and authoritarian goverments, along with corruption and collective stupidities associated with them, you'll find the lyrics en Espanol to be excellent. They also translate very well in English. Without this CD you don't have a full appreciation of Ruben Blades and the music he is capable of.Saludos"
Smooth and compelling!

"This is the third album of Ruben Blades I have bought, and I am amazed at the variety of "flavors" he can produce. The musicians on CAMINANDO have a very smooth jazz brass sound, making everything sophisticated and classy. This seems to me to be the most "political" album of the three (others are LA ROSA DE LOS VIENTOS and TIEMPOS); the lyrics are gritty, smoky, challenging, and at the same time very moving and poetic. I love the clarity of Blades' Spanish - plus, this album includes direct English translations of all the songs, a real benefit."
Typically incredible Blades with Son de Solar.

"No one else mixes rhythm, politics and emotions quite like he does. He doesn't have the greatest voice on the planet, but everything he sings rings so true, who cares? And anyway, you sure can dance to it."
