Product Description

People en Español
There’s no doubt that Julieta Venegas is talented in the recording studio. Three great albums have proved her originality (Aquí,, Bueninvento, ) and the demand for her music (Limón y Sal sold a million copies). But on stage, Venegas doesn’t exude much energy or passion, so making a live album was risky for her career. On the other hand, like Alanis Morissette, Venegas was born to sing in small and intimate acoustic concert venues, and away from the masses, she knows how to create the magic one can find in her albums. On MTV Unpluggged, Venegas invites performers like Natalia Lafourcade, La Mala Rodríguez, Marisa Monte, and Juan Son to recreate new versions of her greatest hits that result in fresh and exciting collaborations. It’s a great musical montage of her practically perfect career. --Ernesto Sánchez (People en EspañolPeople en Español)

No hay duda de que Julieta Venegas es talentosa en un estudio de grabación. Tiene tres grandes álbumes que demuestran su originalidad (Aquí, Bueninvento, ) y un tropiezo en el pop desechable que aún así significó millones de copias para la tijuanense ("Limón y Sal"). Sobre el escenario, sin embargo, Venegas no imprime energía ni pasión, y por eso, una realización de un acústico representaba un riesgo en su carrera. Para fortuna de la misma cantante, Venegas, al igual que Alanis Morissette, nació para dar conciertos íntimos y acústicos, y alejada de las masas, sí sabe recrear la magia de sus discos. En MTV Unpluggged, Venegas invita a figuras como Natalia Lafourcade, La Mala Rodríguez, Marisa Monte, y Juan Son, logrando nuevas versiones de sus grandes éxitos que resultan excitantes y muy acertadas. Un buen recuento de una (casi) perfecta carrera. --Ernesto Sánchez (People en EspañolPeople en Español)

5.0 out of 5 stars Mexican POP Extravaganza August 3, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Jullieta Venegas sounds delightful in this remarkable MTV Unplugged album.
I was truly pleasantly surprised and would highly reccommend it even if it
is your first time buying Latin Pop. She has a beautiful distinctive voice and
musicians with a lot of heart and soul to accompany her.
A must have for your collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why didn't I buy this sooner? April 23, 2010
Format:Audio CD
My taste in music is all over the place, from Tom Waits to Dragon Ash to Aphex Twin to Pharoahe Monch, I'll listen to anything. Amazon constantly recommended Julieta Venegas' Unplugged album here for the past few months, and I was hesitant on it. I'd never heard of her, and while I do listen to all genres, Mexican music isn't my thing. 'odd to say given my ethnicity, I know. But I checked out a few videos from this performance and after the second one, I bought the album. Her voice is captivating, as is the way she performs. As soon as she busted out the accordion for Sería Feliz, I was in love. I'm ashamed to have not given this a chance sooner, and now plan on giving all of her albums a shot.

Really, for anyone curious about her music, check out samples or videos for the first 4 songs. Every single track on here is great, but I feel those 4 really set the tone and show you how diverse the music that accompanies her vocals can be. I was impressed. It's definitely Mexican, but modern, and jazzy at times too. Sadly, my knowledge of this genre of music is limited to what I hear on the radio in my area and at family gatherings, but I'll be sure to bring this album with me next time and see how everyone does with it. Also, the audio on this album is perfect- the crowd never cheers too loudly to the point where you can't hear what she's saying or singing, and all the instruments can be heard clearly. And of course, you don't have to know Spanish to enjoy the songs. Heck, my Spanish skills are literally at a 3rd grade level, but I understood a lot, and what I didn't know, didn't matter because the songs are beautiful regardless.

Also be sure to get the dvd/blu-ray of this performance to see this stunning woman in action. It'll be one of the best concert performances you'll buy.

Format:Audio CD
Este no es cualquier acustico. La multi-talentosa Julieta Venegas aprovechó esta oportunidad para crear una propuesta musical nueva, re-inventando sus canciones, llenándolas de nuevos sonidos a través de excelentes y novedosos arreglos. Ademas, selecionó muy bien sus invitados, basandose en su calidad artistica y no en el nivel de fama de estos. Fue un verdadero "dream team". Para comenzar, tiene entre sus musicos a la tambien talentosisima y multi-instrumentista Natalia Lafourcade. En "eres para mi" invito a la hip-hoper espanola La Mala Rodriguez, (hermosa y sexy por demas!)haciendo gala de su destreza y fuerza en el escenario. Otra agradable sorpresa fue Juan Son. Les confieso que no sabia quien era, pero que voz mas impresionante! Ademas, le tocó cantar una de las mejores canciones de Julieta - "de mis pasos" de su primer disco -. Como si fuera poco, tuvo de invitada a Marisa Monte, para muchos la mejor cantante de su generacion de la musica brasileira. Con su habitual seguridad y elegancia la "tribalsta" se lució como siempre con su increible voz y modo de interpretar. Luego subio a la tarima su antiguo productor, el Rey Midas del Rock en español y ganador de dos Oscares, Gustavo Santaolalla,.Para cerrar con broche de oro, la acompañó en la co-dirección y co-producción Jaques Morelenbaum; ¿quieren una referencia? este violonchelista es el director musical de Caetano Veloso. En síntesis, Una produccion impecable, que la disfruten...

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful. June 29, 2008
Format:Audio CD
It's obvious Julieta enjoys what she's doing. I've heard alot of music...I currently own hundreds of albums from all over the world and she is one of my favorites. I've heard very few artists who can time and time again deliver amazing preformances one after the other. Not only does she sing she writes songs, plays the accordion, produces, and arranges as well. I own, including this album, four of her five (not including her best of). This album is amazing, she breathes new life into her best songs and offers a few new ones to boot. Unplugged performaces often suffer from trying to hard to recreate what was originally done with electric guitars and haevy studio mixing. Naturally she does a very good job.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing January 20, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Julieta Venegas is a very talented musician and did an incredible job with this album. She uses guest performers (Marisa Monte, La Mala Rodriguez, etc.), different instruments (an orchestra), tempo changes and slightly variant melodies to re-create her songs in a way that makes you happy to own a second recording. It is a very fun album and I can't help but singing along while I listen. I would definitely recommend this CD to anyone, even if you don't understand spanish.
