Este CD no es nuevo, pero a quien no lo tenga, que lo adquiera, solo se arrepentira del tiempo que tardo sin tenerlo, asi de bueno es, Arjona logro algo que hasta ese entonces no poseia, armonia y melodia,pues las letras siempre han sido penetrantes, imposible ignorarlas, mas aun olvidarlas, con sus letras, sus ideas y conceptos y la manera que tiene de exponerlos era y es acreedor de la admiracion aun de aquellos que se sintieran atacados,(chicos plasticos,)Conozco varios que les encanta. Libre" es una de mis favoritas, el estribillo suena muy melodioso y a la vez triste, sientes como si de verdad lo estuviera viviendo por el sentimiento que pone al cantarlo, la rebeldia que le caracteriza esta de manifiesto en"me estan j... la vida" y en todo el CD. "Realmente no estoy solo" es un poema hecho cancion, bellisima poesia, matizada con el fondo de piano,exquisito. a veces me pregunto, quien se fue de su vida?, quien le abandono y tras mucho tiempo de ausencia reecontro "Tarde"? Sera a la misma persona a quien le pregunta "Te acuerdas de mi?" O acaso fueron distintas las personas y diferentes abandonos. Es una joya musical, si algun dia pudiera hablarle le preguntaria si es suya la cancion "Ay amor" o es de Victor Manuel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Arjona's "Historias" November 7, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Tremendous album! Even for native English speakers -- or maybe especially for them (that is, Gringos like me), this is a first rate album. Two of the cuts..."Historia de Taxi" and "Ayúdame Freud" are without equal as contemporary ballads. I've had the album at least 7 years and it is a constant, never boring favorite. Fun way to learn Spanish, too...Worth it at twice the price. I'd write more, but I'd rather go listen to 'Taxi' for the millioneth time.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best CD I ever heard March 30, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is an excellent CD!. When I heard this CD I couldn't believe that is was so good and interesting!!.
I not only liked Arjona's voice, but also, what the songs said.

If I had to say which is my favourite songs, it would be either HISTORIAS DE TAXI, or SI YO FUERA, or REALMENTE NO ESTOY TAN SOLO or LA NOCHE TE TRAE SORPRESAS (yes, I know, I should choose only one, but it is so difficult!!!).....but CASA DE LOCOS and HISTORIAS DEL PORTERO are excellent too.

I loved Arjona's songs but I only have one CD so far: "Historias". Anyway, I think that is the best one.
Please tell my what YOU think about this genious of music. I'd love to discuss that with the man, woman, girl or boy that is reading this now.
I can't believe that only recently (in December), I discovered Ricardo Arjona's songs. Before that, I had heard one or two of his songs, but not all the CD.
I recommended this CD...once you hear it, the only thing that you are going to complain about is that you didn't hear before!.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best pop en español albums of all time! September 29, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Arjona is a master storyteller, and that is not all that you get on this disc. The arrangements on some of these tunes are top notch as well. "Historia del taxi" is one of my personal all time favorite tunes, which tells a pretty steamy story of lust, social indifferences and revenge. Then "La noche trae sorpresas" and "Me estan jodiendo la vida" are great rocknroll tunes. "historia del portero" is a country song which is written brilliantly as well, that one always makes me smile. Buy this, and be sure to read the lyrics, it's like reading short stories.

Arjona es famoso por su música con letras muy particulares. Pero la riqueza conceptual de esta obra escapa de las prisiones de la fama. Por algo tiene tan merecido el éxito. Después de triunfar con Animal Nocturno.. al parecer decidió utilizar todo el dinero posible y "meterlo" en un nuevo disco. Por algo hay más de 50 instrumentos diferentes en esta colección de 14 majestuosas canciones... que más que un álbum, parecería su primera colecci'øn de "Grandes Éxitos"
Y precisamente es éste el disco más exitoso de Arjona... quizá no el mejor, pues Santo Pecado y Galería Caribe están años luz a distancia... pero aún así, este disco es genial. Contiene los famosísimos exitos "Señora de las Cuatro Décadas", "Historia del Taxi", "Te Conozco", "Realmente No Estoy Tan Solo", "Casa de Locos". Las demás, quizá no sean tan famosas, pero igualmente canciones excelentes... en particular la JOYA lírica "Ayudame Freud", las preciosas narraciones de la cotidaneidad latinoamericana "Me Están Jodiendo La Vida", "Chicos de Plástico", "Si Yo Fuera" y "Amor de Tele"
La calidad de las letras y múscia hacen de este un disco esencial para cualquier colección respetable de música pop en español.
