Product Description

Amar es Combatir, Mana's 9th studio album and first in four years, was produced by Mana with the special collaboration of recording engineer Tom Russo (Audioslave, Macy Gray, Michael Jackson, Eric Clapton). Also includes a duet with JLGuerra.

Amazon.com

It's finally happened. After years of puzzling popularity by way of derivative rock retreads, Mana has finally made the leap to full-bodied musical force on its first album in four years, Amar Es Combatir. The disc is a thoughtful, tender and often terrific collection of pop wizardry. It's buoyed by solid production work, a cohesive sound and singer Fher Olvera's commanding vocal presence. Mana has always drawn inspiration from the arena-rock vibes of everyone from U2 to Journey, but this time, the group takes those blueprints and creates its own urgent framework. It's a thrilling, insanely catchy collection. Everything on the disc crackles with energy, from winsome opener "Manda Un Senal" to swaggering closing track "Relax." In between, the Mexico-based outfit weaves memorable stories of love that are marked by pulsing percussion, driving guitar riffs and emotive vocals. First-rate stuff from a group who finally--at least to these ears--justifies all the fuss. --Joey Guerra

Biography

Mana origins date back to a band called Sombrero Verde, whose members José Fernando (Fher) Olvera, voice, Gustavo Orozco, the electric guitar; and the Calleros brothers: Juan Diego, on bass, Ulysses, on electric guitar and Abraham, on drums came from Guadalajara. In 1975 they decided to get together to play different songs from groups they admired, including The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, ... Read more in Amazon's Maná Store

Well, I waited long and hard for a new Mana album and it took me many times through it to be able to rate it. In my opinion, Suenos Liquidos and Revolucion de Amor were more complete albums, and I would rate those albums MORE than 5 stars. Amar Es Combatir gets a solid 5 stars from me. This one has less of a "Rock" sound than Revolucion in my opinion, although a few songs don't disappoint in that category. This to me is more of an "easy listening" sound but worth the money. I couldn't really pinpoint a theme to this one. "Donde Jugaran" from years ago had a sort of environmental theme, as did "Cuando Los Angeles Lloran", which I also call the "Dark" album. "Suenos" was water and dreams and sirenas, and "Revolucion" to me really was a revolution in their sound compared to prior albums. This one flows along and is easy to listen to, with four or five songs that REALLY stand out and the rest are "good". Only thing I'd change is I'd make it a little harder. That being said, I have noticed that all of the songs I like the least (tracks 6, 9 11,12) are other people's favorites, which makes sense and is evidence that Mana really does appeal to a large audience with different tastes. For that reason alone a person should buy this album - at least half of the songs will appeal to you, which is more than can be said for a lot of albums released these days that have only one or two really good songs...

One thing about this album is that it seems more crisp, more digitally mastered, or engineered, than past albums. You can hear more computerized or synthesized sounds throughout the songs, which isn't a bad thing, just a little more than they've done in the past.

Of note on this album is the repeat appearance by Sergio's brother Fernando.

I've been awaiting this album for years. Mana is my favorite band in the whole world and this album, while it wasn't the mind-blowing CD I had built up in my mind, is still a great album that was worth the wait. Yes, 85 percent of the album is all about having loved and lost and loved and lost again, but really, isn't that why we love these guys? They fill their music with real emotion that anyone who's ever been in love can identify with.

What I liked about this album -- solid production -- I vote they keep recording in Miami! -- strong, incredibly well-crafted lyrics full of real feeling and the further evolution of the band's sound while still retaining its style. When you hear a Mana song, you know it, and yet it keeps developing into a higher level. What I didn't like -- I agree with the reviewer who said they couldn't find a solid cohesive theme on this one like in past albums. Maybe it's because we have three prolific songwriters now instead of just the two, but there's a greater mix of music style and lyric themes, which can be good but it makes me a little nostalgic for the work they did on Suenos Liquidos (my favorite)and Cuando Los Angeles Lloran. I also miss the socially and environmentally conscious songs on past albums such as Me Voy a Convertir en Un Ave and Selva Negra. Even Revolucion de Amor, which was heavy on the love and light on the revolution, had Pobre Juan and Angel del Amor. The two songs on Amar Es Combatir that stray from the love-loss-love, Combatiente and Relax, are great, but they're more along the lines of Nada Que Perder than they are Donde Jugaran Los Ninos. I miss that and hope they return with a few more like that on the next one.

When it comes to asking people about Pop Latino music; it is almost common that almost everyone you ask will say Mana is among thier favorites. This is probably hard to believe that I have only been a Mana fan or the other word they use for fans like me "Manatico" since 2004. I had a huge interest in the group when I Bought my first album from them called "Unplugged". Thier soothing sounds of a live concern scene had me wanting more. When I bought the next album Cuando Los Angeles Lloran I was hooked. I really enjoy listening to Fher Olvera, the main singer in the group. His musical talents are often compared to the main singer in Sting or Bono from U2. It's really amazing how the group we know as Mana know now almost failed to exist at one point of thier career. I listen to these guys often and recommend anyone to listen to thier music, you don't have to speak Spanish but you can still enjoy the sound of Fher's voice, as well as the drumbeats performed by Sergio Vallin Rodriguez. Here are a couple reviews of thier albums from thier careers (may not have all of them)

Falta Amor 1990- Great first album under the name Mana. for those of you who don't that they used to be called Sombrero Verde and were also part of the movement called "Rock en tu Idioma" This album has more of an Adult Contemporary sound to it, kinda like a Soft Rock en Espanol type sound. My favorite song in this album is "Rayando El Sol" Mana's first big hit.

Donde Jugaran Los Ninos 1992- Another great masterpiece of work, still has the Soft Rock en espanol sound. Great hits include: Oye Mi Amor, Vivir Sin Aire, and Como Diablos, as well as the beginning up beat hit: De Pies a Cabeza.

mana's new song.
they are a great band because their music/lyrics actually have some meaning outside of the trivial bubblegum lyrics we hear all the time. all the greatest bands and artists had something more to their music than just the sound-they had words that came from the heart, a political statement,... Read More
