Editorial Reviews

Ricardo Arjona claims this is the best work he has created during his career so far. Independiente contains thirteen songs that Arjona wrote and recorded over four years. New York City, Nashville, Miami and Mexico City were four locations where Arjona would record, master and edit his 2011 masterpiece.

After his 2011 Grammy award for 2010 studio album, Poquita Ropa, Arjona delivers a studio release where he returns to his original roots of songwriting styles and arrangements. Yet Arjona states the differenece with these songs is they also feature something not found in his older works, and that is the experience he has gained over the years. Arjona has written every song on Independiente. In addition, he has co-produced Independiente with world renowned producers Dan Warner, Lee Levin and Carlos Cabral.

Personalmente, crei que pasaria mucho tiempo antes que Arjona pudiera salir con una produccion mejor que "Adentro", me alegra haberme equivocado. "Adentro" sigue siendo mi produccion favorita, sin embargo tengo que admitir que este album es de igual calidad.

This time Arjona reaches back and borrows some from his own original technique in which he combines the usual metaphore, the synonyms and the antonyms, but in a more conscious manner than that used in more recent Arjona's material. The songs on this CD are carefully crafted, and one can sense a little more of that passion originally found in his earliest work. In this new creation the song "Fuiste Tu" in itself is worth buying the CD. Arjona really unleashed all the inner gut feelings when writing the lyrics on this one, and together with Gaby's sweet voice he found the most adequate vehicle to deliver the emotions contained in it, and impregnate the listener with the same sensation. This song is "independently" the culmination of what song-writing is about. And unquestionably the icing on the cake for 'Independiente'- great duet! The artwork with multiple self portraits is a bit strange in my opinion, but then again, I don't now much about art. This review is for the artistry in the lyrics, and the always great musicianship in his band. This album is a keeper. Get it!

Escuche un par de temas e inmediatamente me di cuenta que la calidad era la misma que quedo olvidada en sus primeros trabajos. Letras naturales y con lindas melodias pegajosas, en varios temas del CD. Totalmente lo opuesto a Poquita Ropa, que en mi opinion, es el PEOR trabajo de Arjona, que seguro le resto fans que ya tenia, y quien lo escucho por 1ra vez en ese album, seguro que no lo volvio a escuchar, album totalmente forzado, editado en bruto donde ninguna de sus canciones debio haberse grabado en limpio, el album era sucio. Pero este review no es de Poquita Ropa (ya dejare uno en el lugar donde corresponde) sino de Independiente, y pienso que, valiendo la redundancia, 'independientemente' de lo que haya sido su anterior trabajo, este esta muy bueno y vale la pena escucharlo y curtirlo. Puede marcarnos una linda epoca, asi que vale la pena comprarlo ya!!

I simply just adore this man and everything he writes, composes and plays... He is sooooo talented and creative, I love his analogies and his outlook on life and relationships... He writes about everything you can think of and he is not afraid of being judged.... There is true meaning in each and every song... And amazingly.... each time you listen to his songs...you get a totally different... maybe even deeper meaning.... He is very wise and knowlegable!!!! He really is a true human being... every one of his albums have always had a major impact on me... and they get stronger every single time.... I am soooo grateful for him I will never have enough words to express what a huge difference he's made in my life... I highly recommend this album and every single other one he has!!!! He is true... he gets his point accross and makes one think about life.... about love... some politics.... Mostly about love though... He's smart, he's funny, he's serious, he's a joker, a drama king sometimes...,But above all he is just a lovable human lover!!!!! Falling in love with his talent, music and songs, was so easy, refreshing and soothing at the same time.... He is the only artist who's voice will always be true to himself and to us.

Arjona nos enseña como solo
la experencia nos ayuda a ver
las cosas differente de la vida
El Amor y todo lo que se le pega
se une en estos 13 temas para hacer
un OBRA y Nada mas.
Escuchelon bien cada tema
y veran que con cada vez que lo escuchen
encontraran una nueva razon para encantarle.

Contexto el Sitio de Ricardoarjona.com:
Ricardo Arjona eligió a una de las nuevas estrellas de la música guatemalteca
como su compañera para el dueto `Fuiste Tú'. Tema en que se nos da la
oportunidad de asomarnos a ver las dos caras de la moneda dentro del
final de un trágico idilio. Dos amantes que intentan culparse el uno
al otro por el inminente fracaso de algo que alguna vez les permitió
tocar el cielo juntos. Una canción que transmite de forma sincera el
amargo sentir de un final amoroso desde las dos partes involucradas.

También nos topamos ante el talento de Gaby Moreno, una artista que
ha logrado fusionar de manera única los ritmos alegres de su tierra
con la melancolía y pasión del blues norteamericano. El resultado es
un mezcla sin igual que pone de manifiesto el talento y habilidad
tanto lírica como musical de esta joven cantautora.

Otro excelente material de Arjona, en mi opinion uno de los mejores de los ultimos tiempos. Es un disco que se parece mucho con sus primeros trabajos pero ademas se nota en el disco la experiencia que Arjona obtenido durante su carrera. Muy buen disco, en verdad se los recomiendo.

Ricardo Arjona is awesome and hot and everything. Everytime I hear one of his songs I get so happy. If I ever get the chance to see him in concert it will be the happpiest year of my life. THis for sure is another of his great CD'S. I love it like i love ADENTRO, SANTO PECADO, QUINTO PISO. i HAVE MORE OF HIS cD'S BUT THOSE FOUR cd's I can honestly say i listen to all the songs in there as much as I can. I have spent up to 4 hours a day repeating the same CD AND NOT BECAUSE IT GOT STucK OR I WAS TOO lazy to take it out. He is so comforting, sometimes he is so dramatic, so funny, so great but most of all you get the feeling that he understands you and you understand him. It sounds like an American Dad episode where stan believes he has a connection to a singer and stalks him. But even if it can't get that extreme it is always beautiful to listen to his music. He loves writting about everything so never think he is trying to be a smart a$$ just because he sounds so passionate about everything.
