Although she would deservedly achieve much greater success in coming years, Paulina Rubio's "El Tiempo Es Oro (The Time Is Gold)" is a much overlooked, far underrated disc she recorded way back in 1994.

Everyone from the most diehard of fans to her most casual of admirers have so much solid material here to love and appreciate, making it a true shame that is album is so forgotten, including by Rubio herself, who never even touches it during her concerts anymore. The album carries a theme that is reflected in the title; the listener is on the receiving end of consistent reminders of how time is of the essence.

The album kicks off with the hit single "Te Daría Mi Vida (I Would Give You My Life)," which has an overall very campy vibe and video to match. A very giddy tune that gains a lot of knowledge from Euro-pop stylings, it is abudantly infectious, although it lacks the everlasting quality of further material on the disc.

A true standout is "A Ti, Volver, Regresar (To You, Turn Around, Come Back)," a slick track with retro vibes and smart production with a melody and lyrics that don't command a high-octave vocal performance from Rubio, but rather a precisely accurate, intense interpretation. She pulls that off with flying colors, proving why she has her job.

Some moments of the album get downright intense. "Aun (Even)" and "Si Te Marchas Con Otra (If You Go With Another)" are songs of love gone wrong and the emotional consequences, while in the infectious "Nada De Ti (Nothing Of You)," for which Rubio throws a glass of water in the face of her two-timing ex-boyfriend in the video, she stands her ground, a fully self-sufficient and independent woman.

El Tiempo es oro is "dando guerra" en Ecuador's radio stations. Since the firts track "Te daria mi vida" was released, it occuped the firts places for many weeks. Te daria Mi vida shows the euro-pop rythm which Paulina is influenced by. Afeter some months, there was a BOOM in radio: AUN, the new track from this album. catalogued as THE SONG OF THE YEAR IN 1996, "Aun" has become an imnortal romantic song. Is consolided Paulina as one of the best mexican-singers of the 90's.

Te daria mi vida - one of the best, but if you listen to the other songs, they are good like "NADA DE TI, I am surprised it wasn't a chart topper. EN EL NOMBRE DEL AMOR, ME ESTOY ENAMORANDO (sounds a bit like a carnival but good). Before you know it you will know all of the songs lyrics. This is the CD I listened to in high school...and I still remember all of the lyrics.

Any fan of "La chica dorada", Paulina Rubio will see this CD as perhaps her most entertaining, next to her latest, "Planeta Paulina". This is one of those CD's that's great all the way through. Each song has something new to offer, and is special in it's own way. The music on this CD is some of the best to come from a contemorary latin performer, and surely marks Rubio's presence on the latin music scene in a defining way; it is more than worthy to be heard. Don't be misled by the reiewer of this album, who rated "El tiempo es oro" with a discrediting, two stars.
