CD Reviews

(5 out of 5 stars)

"There's simply one word that describes this album, Inredible! Ana Gabriel's genius surely shows in great amounts on this flawless album, which is aptly titled "Vivencias (life experiences)". She evokes such a reaction in all of the album's tracks , that by the end , you are left in awe. The finest example is "Miedo (fear)" , where she is simply stating her case. "Para comprenderme , te hace falta vida. Tener mil amores y la mitad de mis heridas. Volar alto alto , y care de golpe..(to understand me , theres so much more you have to live through , Have a thousand lovers and only half of my wounds. Fly high , so high and crash land)".Her use of musical styles varies , from club beats ("Solo Fantasia") ,caribbean beats ("No Sabes")and yes , even hard rock ("Tu No Te Imaginas"). Normally , such drastic mixtures would create an unpleasant result , but , it works in the sense that , like any other person , her personalities vary just like the music. "Vivencias" marks Ana Gabriel's first attempt to sing in English , giving her voice to a cover of "Under The Bordwalk" , the only oddity on the album. Ana Gabriel's "experiences" surely are difficult to bear , and yet she expresses them so emotionally , we feel every beat. In my opinion ,this is one of the best spanish albums there is , and if given a chance , will most definitely make it's way to being on your CD player frequently."

Branching out beyond the Mexican border

"Here, the great Mexican-flavored Ana Gabriel branches out with a little Chinese-influence (No Te Hago Falta); Spanish-techno (Solo Fantasia); and English-crossover (Under the Boardwalk). Most of it works well for a very brave, original, and entertaining project."
