The Gipsy Kings, who sing mostly in Spanish and apparently live and record in France -- go figure --, are incredibly prolific. Unless one is insatiable for lots of flamenco guitar and gypsy music, the collections, either this one or best of or both, will probably suffice. The disc contains a couple instrumentals and, as the title suggests, all the songs are of love, frequently the leaving kind of love (both leaver -- No Volvere -- and left -- Tu Quieres Volver). My single favorite is the lilting Caminando Por la Calle, love at first beat and some unbelievable la-la vocalizing. Other picks: Mi Corazon, Hable Me, Mujer. Some will be interested to know that My Method (A Mi Manera) is better in Spanish, but not by much. Overall, very enjoyable music.
Warm, jazzy vocals by Omara Portuondo imbed FLOR DE AMOR with a strong bossa nova and simple listening Latin beat. These are lovely pieces brought to life by Omara Portoundo's voice: delicate in style, here tinged lightly with a horn interlude; there with supper club crooning.
A clandestine affair. A relationship just out of reach. Beauty. Passion. Suffering. And, the love for a son. Mr. Joan Sebastian has the love bases covered, to perfection. "Me Gustas" is the REALLY huge hit on this CD. I had never even heard of Joan Sebastian until that song was being played on every road corner, in every supermarket and from every vehicle radio in town, and I went out in find of that honey-smooth voice. "Anoche Hablamos" has a Julio Iglesias sound to it except for the "tu, tu, tu" of Juan Gabriel fame. Absorbing. The catchy "El Toro," a traditional rendering with "Bravos" and "Oles" is actually an analogy in which Sebastian likens suffering to bulls attacking the soul. Not good taste but amazing sounds. This whole CD is excellent. The only method it falls short is in quantity. It's only 34 mins long, but 34 pleasing mins they are.
Este es sin duda la mejor producción de Joan Sebastian, se puede dejar tocar todo el cd y todas las canciones son buenas... en especial Secreto de Amor y la que le dedicó a su ex-esposa Maribel Guardia: Un Idiota... en esta canción le pide perdón y le dice que la ama... una canción basada en un hecho true y muy private cuando rompieron durante la grabación de la telenovela Tu y Yo por andar de resbaloso con la actriz Arlette Terán... el disco trae varios temas romanticos con sonidos modernos y los demás son muy buenos también... muy recomendado para cualquier alma bohemia
I've been carrying this CD from my vehicle to the house (and back again) for the latest 3 weeks. The backup singers will seduce you. Most noticeable is the sound of the instrumentalists, and in particular the delicate nuances they afford and, in general, how INCREDIBLY GOOD it all sounds together. If one is to assume that artist's albums are supposed to improve, in general, over time, then this is in my opinion Mme Portuondo's best to date. This is the sort of album that makes you say (even so soon after its release)
To think that those of us not born in Cuba might have missed out on Omara is nearly unthinkable. Omara's voice is the kind of instrument that comes along very rarely--sweet, rich, full of expression and sadness and joy. This album is a true find, with sad/sweet violins, the marvelous son based rhythms of golden age Havana, and fluttering guitar work. By now, those listening to the Cuban revivalist melody (Buena Vista Social Club/ Ibrahim Ferrer/ Eliades Ochoa/ Ruben Gonzales) will be familiar with her name; those who love the tropical rhythms of Cuba will wish to snatch this up. Omara sings with a golden glow about her voice; this is not the record created by a 20 year old--you can hear the experience, the joy in her art and the sadness of some of the songs suffusing everything like butterscotch. The highlight of the album for me is Hermosa Habana, a song about the golden days of what must have been, at one time, a glamorous and exciting city. Its gentle sadness and evocation of bygone days leaves me haunted. "Si llego a besarte" melts the heart with a liquid accordion intro, but is kept from saccharine by a gently hipswaying beat, and the unfailing sureness of Omara's interpretation--her grand lilting vocals floating, effortless, over the mix. I cannot rave enough about this unbelievable disc, this unbelievable voice, this marvellous music. If you are reading this review, then this disc is probably for you--don't be scared. Highly and unreservedly recommended for aficionados of attractive singing, tropical beats, the scent of coconut and rum, and a memory of moonlit nights in a torrid city.
This is a unbelievable compilation of some of The Gipsy King's most romantic songs. I am not one that by rule likes greatest hits, but in this case, I do. In my opinion, one would have to find far and wide to search melody with more passion and emotion. This is from el corazon-the heart. The guitars speak volumes while Nicolas Reyes' one of a kind voice carries us through all the beauty and suffering that has encompassed Flamenco for generations. With this, a suggestion: Grab your lover and some vino, place this CD on and see what develops...I bet it'll be hotter than The Costa Del Sol!My favorites are: "Un Amor"/"Gitano Soy"/"Love & Liberte"/"Quiero Saber"/"Caminando Por La Calle" (My most cherished of all)/"Trista Pena."Although I am elated to see Latin melody gaining popularity, some of todays stars are pale in comparison to The Gipsy Kings...Adios amigos- Que Dios te bendiga.
Omara Portuondo's voice would create any song sound good. What this CD lacks in guest stars, Omara makes up for it with some amazing classic Cuban songs and brazilian influenced arrangements. She even sings the latest track partly in Portuguese. As with all these Cuban albums recorded in the EGREM studios, there is a special sound the old studio environment leaves on the recorded works. This is a amazing album by the only woman of the Buena Vista Social Club, not too a lot of members are left, have fun this CD from one of the survivors.
Para las personas que no hayan escuchado las primeras producciones, como solista de esta gran interprete - deleitense con este disquito!Here, you'll obtain a feeling for some of this artist's early work as a soloist. It's amazing to obtain close to the roots of GSR ...
I don't know a word of Spanish... well, I can count to twenty, and know a few phrases, including some that have worked their method into the English language (eg, vaya con Dios, dos cerveza por favor), but basically just your average redneck gringo. However, I love music, have a very nice audio rig, and a Mexican health professional who comes in twice a week to support me. She's great, and likes music, so I asked her who she likes and went on Youtube to sample Joan Sebastian. I liked him, especially Un Idiota - even a redneck idiot like me could figure out that title - and then Secreto De Amor began... I was hooked, went straight for the Amazon and am listening now to El Toro, another winner. All the songs are good, so getcha some, gringo.
I love listening to this cd it is very relaxing and there is a couple songs that makes me wish to obtain up and dance . Where i live this cd is nowhere to be found but i finally bought it and was well worth the i have over 1000 cds and this one is in the top 5 of my favorite . I love all his melody but secreto de amor has to be my all time favorite.
i had high hopes for this album after moderately liking his first stuff. i've tried listening to it 10 times or more and my overall sentiment that it sucks remains. Only about 2 or 3 of the songs are worth anything. the rest are just really really played out, tired reggaeton beats, and his voice oversinging the songs. its surprising because he has relatively amazing producers and guest artists appearing on the album, but the song structure and his lyrics and his rapping and his singing on this album can't pull it together. if i give it 2 stars its because its not COMPLETE crap... but i definitely would not recomment others to it. the few amazing songs on here don't create up for the rest of the crap on it.
I first heard from him on the reggaeton super stars album and instantly liked him.Mikey Perfecto doesn't look like it but this album is fire. He has guests like Daddy Yankee, Alexis, Ivy Queen and more. He almost produced this album all by himself and did a very amazing job. The beats have a very clear and deep sound and on top he uses some classical instruments which create the album far from ordinary. He is one of the few artists who can rap, produce and sing. There is an explicit and a clean ver available which are not amazing indicated by Amazon. I bought the clean ver but there are just some words chop out so it's no problem.
