Oh my goodness, a fantastic CD and I highly recommend you to buy it.
Elizabeth N. Nguyen
The fact is, however, that the last good album this band had was Revolucion de Amor, and only because it had 3 or 4 songs that really saved it.

Mana kept us waiting for a few years for this one, but it was worth the wait!

Now, I've been a Mana fan for quite a while. And I'm not one of those fans that just listen to their singles that get played on the radio... I'm the fan that listens to and knows all of their material.

Drama y Luz is a change to Mana's sound, not that they had a distinctive sound to begin with. One of the things I noticed about Mana in this album is that they're relying on a more Alternative Rock sound, which is a first for Mana. Another thing I noticed about this album is that, creatively, it fails to take bigger risks, risks that, if taken, would have greatly improved the album and my rating. One of my main complaints of this album is the muzzling of Sergio Vallin, the band's guitarist. Not that he was constantly throwing out solos, but the length and simplicity of the solos in this album leaves this Mana fan wishing for more from Vallin. I'll give you a more detailed review as I discuss the songs individually:

Lluvia al Corazon: boring track, really. I was scared when I listened to this song for the first time, fearing that this would define the entire album. Fortunately, I was wrong.

Amor Clandestino: acoustic track all the way. The lyrics are a bit cheesy. Kind of bluesy. It's alright.

Reina del Dolor: a bit better. This song actually has a pop punk feel to it, which I don't mind. Vallin's solo, however, leaves a lot to be desired. It had the potential of making the song greater.

El Espejo: now, this is the gem of the album. The use of violins to build up certain parts of the song makes this song great. Vallin's guitar work, while no solos, is heavy and solid. Certainly, one of my favorites songs from this album, and a good Mana song, overall.

I love this band, and have fervently bought each album as they're released. Sadly though, this record is a huge disappointment. The writing is fine, but the songs are just so bland and uninteresting! I remember the excitement I felt upon hearing Revolucion de Amor for the first time (my first hotly anticipated Mana album since I purchased the ones before after they'd been out for a while). I got a similar feeling with Amar es Combatir. But Drama y Luz sounds like the band just didn't really care. The only memorable songs on this album are "Lluvia al Corazon" and "El Dragon"...the rest of the songs just seem to meld into one another with no distinction. Hopefully this is just a blip on an otherwise flawless catalog.

Para mí, el álbum nuevo de MANÁ es evocadora de las canciones impresionantes en los discos "Cuando Los Ángeles Lloran"; "Sueños Líquidos"; y "Revolución De Amor."

Experimentan con arreglos de orquesta--de los cuáles algunos dirán que esto causa que el disco sea demasiado "formal", "estructurado", o "lento" en comparación a los trabajos previos de la banda. Yo entendería eso--extraño a los talentos guitarrísticos rigurosos de Sergio en este disco. Sin embargo, esto no quita de las baladas hermosas que encandilan a "Drama y Luz." Si usted necesita escuchar canciones particulares para deducir sus propias opiniones hacia el disco, escuchen "Vuela Libre Paloma"; "El Dragón"; y "El Espejo."

Yo sentía que "Amar Es Combatir" no fue el mejor esfuerzo de la banda. Pero "Drama y Luz" definitivamente es otro rollo, hecho evidente por la calidad de la música al igual como el DVD incluido en el Deluxe Edition.

Entre todo, "Drama y Luz" es un logro triunfante--uno de los mejores discos del año, y entre los experimentos más finos de la carrera artística de MANÁ.

********************************

To me, the new MANÁ album is reminiscent of songs that made "Cuando Los Ángeles Lloran"; "Sueños Líquidos"; & "Revolución de Amor" so awesome.

They experiment with orchestral arrangements--which some might say makes the album too "formal", "structured", or "slow" in a way that doesn't allow them to let loose as they have on other albums. I can see that--I definitely miss Sergio's glaring guitar solos on this album.

I am a huge Mana fan who has been looking forward to this album for a long time and sadly I was disappointed. I only like 3 songs from the entire album. (Lluvia al Corazon, El Espejo, El Dragon) The rest of the tracks are very bland, not horrible, but not great. They are not the memorable kind of songs that made Mana famous around the world. I find myself skipping most of these boring songs to get to the three I mentioned.

Save your money. Just buy a few individual tracks or "borrow" this one from a friend.

He seemed to really like, and he requested I order him more CDs from this Mexican band. So I did.
