CD Reviews

An excellent first album
05/22/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is the first album from 15-year old Victoria Galvan (she was 14 when the album was released) and her Tejano band, los Chikos. It is an impressive mix of songs, including cumbias, ballads, rancheras, and pop. The title track is catchy, with sing-along lyrics, as are the other cumbias on the CD. A decent remake of Bruce Springsteen's hit "Fire" (here, it is called "Fuego") appears on the album, as well as a cute R&B/Rap song that was co-written by Galvan ("My Baby's Gone"). However, the understated ballad, "Todo Era Gris" is perhaps the most memorable single on the disc. Galvan may emerge as the leading artist in the Tejano field. The fact that she plays a musical instrument (the accordion) differentiates her from most other female Tejano artists. This, coupled with her good vocal abilities, should allow her to dominate the Tejano industry within a few years. Her good looks may help her out a little (or a lot) in the image-obsessed entertainment world."

""PREPARATE" IS VICTORIA'S DEBUT CD AND AT 15 SHE IS ACCOMPLISHED AS A YOUNG SINGER AND ACCORDIAN PLAYER. SHE IS UNIQUE IN HER OWN RIGHT AND THE TITLE SONG WILL LEAVE YOU WANTING MORE. SHE IS YOUNG AND HAS A FRESH NEW SOUND TO BRING TO TEJANO, AND SHE CONTINUES TO BRING MORE GREAT MUSIC WITH HER SECOND CD TITLED "QUE RICO" , YOU WILL ENJOY THE SOUNDS AND BEATS OF THIS YOUNG ARTISTS MUSIC. TALENT, BEAUTY, AND CHARISMA ARE WHAT MAKES VICTORIA AND HER MUSIC A FINE EXAMPLE OF TEX-MEX. BUY BOTH CD'S THEY ARE BOTH TOO COOL TO PASS BY!!!!!!!! VICTORIA Y SUS CHIKOS ROCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
