Even though I appreciate the music of Mexico, I did not feel that this album was special. None of the pieces had the Yanni touch. It was Mexican music I have heard hundreds of times before and could have been released by any artist. Nothing about this album said it was from Yanni. Other than Yanni's picture on the front, I would never had thought it had anything to do with Yanni.

So I have to ask, Yanni, what has happened to you? Where is your original compositions? I miss hearing music YOU have composed. Even though recycling is en vogue, I don't think you should apply it to your music (ie, Voices) and now this album. I really love your music, but I have been so disappointed in your offerings these past few years. Maybe you should take a year off touring (even though I LOVE seeing you perform live) and spend that year soul searching and come up with some NEW, ORIGINAL music. As a devoted fan, it pains me to give your music 1 star. So Please, Please, Please, write some NEW music and come back next year with a wonderful album.

Yanni's music was about struggle, endurance, ultimate triumph and celebration.

The main core of his compositions throughout his career had these particular imprints, and of course, were reflected on both the entrepreneurship and achievement on such projects as "Live at the Acropolis" and "Tribute".

This "Mexicanísimo" thing is just about the commonplace and the inconsequential, it's trivial and what is capitally devastating - boring.

Yanni is my most favorite artist in the entire world. This CD was a waste of money for me and a waste of my time for listening to it. How could he have made this CD? Please Yanni come back with what you did before......

After listening to the samples, mostly all of them sounded too much of the "Mariachi"/Norteño sounds which is heard in most Mexican music. I felt the vocals and trumpets sounds could have been left out (in most of the songs) which greatly interrupted Yanni's piano/orchestrated & melodic flowing tunes. The only real song that I liked was "La Bakina". "La Bakina" didn't have any vocals and less trumpet usage. Furthermore, "La Bakina" sounded like Yanni's unique style.

bought the Yanni CD thinking I was gonna get what I was used to hearing and I didn't like it that much . Even the mexican music that I've listened to before didn't sound good with the Yanni musical instruments. I wish I would have listened to the CD before I bought it. I wouldn't have bought this CD.

For a long time, I identified such a thing in my head as the "Yanni Spirit" This is, joyful, persevering, passionate, emotional, decisive, courageous - ALL GOOD. This CD is nothing else than Mexican Music - there is no Yanni spirit at all. What kind of CD is this? What difference does it make if Yanni or anyone else decides to record a Mexican Music CD? Not worth it at all. Is not even a major arrangement or anything ... simply Mexican Music... terrible The only Yanni CD I do not like - and I am an ardent fan

Yanni has created awesome music (and videos) with the Tribute and Yanni Voices projects. This CD just doesn't have the Yanni sound, the fiery arrangments, the stellar performances or the aura of greatness that one would expect. Tracks 10 and 11 have hints of typical Yanni. It's hard to understand why he would lend his name to this project. I have to agree with another reviewer that parts of it are like elevator music: familiar and mediocre.

I am so sad to say that I am disappointed about this Mexicanisimo music Cd. If it would have been from some other artist, I would say it is ok, but not from Yanni. Yanni is like Mozart for this time and age, Yanni is a genius, but with this cd it feels like he has lost the inspiration totally. There is no creativity at all, and I know he could have taken the same songs he chose for this cd and transform them into musical jewels, but he didn't.
I am a songwriter too and sometimes I just want to create simple songs, but this cd is just not even simple, but not good. Simplicity doesn't mean ugly.
