You may have seen Penelope Cruz lip sync in Volver and wondered where that incredible voice came from - strong and passionate, yet emotional and vulnerable. Meet Estrella Morente, from Granada, Spain (her name means "star"). "Mujeres" is her second album, after "Mi cante y un poema," and it's a knockout.

This album is laden with beautiful songs borrowed from other artists and given a flamenco twist. A few standouts are "Tangos de Grana," "Zambra," "La noche de mi amor," and "Nana." And let's not forget "Volver." Estrella's voice is from another world. "Mi cante y un poema" was good, but her voice has matured a bit and comes across even stronger on "Mujeres." I've exposed many of my friends to Estrella Morente and given the album to several. Some aren't in love with flamenco, but even they recognize that she's a force of nature.

If you're debating whether or not to give Estrella a shot, get on youtube right now - check her out in the video for "Zambra" and I promise you, you'll be a fan too!

HI GUYS AND GIRLS!.I TELL YOU...SINCE I SAW THE MOVIE VOLVER WHERE ESTRELLA S VOICE GOES INTO THE MAIN THEME OF THE MOVIE, I AM NOT THE SAME MUSICAL PERSON.

SHE IS BRILLIANT, SHE GET S ME RIGHT DOWN IN MY GUTS,AND I AM NEVER TIRED OF LISTEN THIS ALBUM AT LEAST ONCE A DAY,I EVEN PUTED TRACKS OF "MUJERES" AS WAKE UP AND RING TONE IN MY MOBILE.

IF THERE WAS A LAW WHERE OUT OF THIS WORLD VOICE,BEAUTY, MODESTY AND ENDLESS TALENT WHERE A CRIME ESTRELLA WOULD HAVE GOT A LIFE SENTENCE!!.

BY THE WAY I DO NOT NOT IF HER MATADOR(HER HUSBANd) CAN SAY NO EVER IF SHE STARTS TO SING TO HIM WHILE AT HOME.... I KNOW I COULDN T.

LONG AND HAPPY LEFE TO THE "REINA" ESTRELLA!

What is to say about a SINGER/ARTIST with so much talent and fire like Estrella Morente! I dare to say that after Carmen Linares, Estrella is the perfect expression of the Song called Flamenco! Her voice expresses deeply el cante Jondo(flamenco). Gentle yet strong voice, she makes you feel and yearn for more. You feel both her pain and love in every note that comes out of that beautiful mouth. Estrellita de mi corazon, never stop singing for that would be a crime, jamais pares de cantar porque seria un crimen! Viva Estrella!

This is a marvelous album, a stunning follow up to her prior American release, My Songs and a Poem. There are no notes, in any language (nor any title on the CD- I thought for a minute it was a pirate), but the album seems to consist of songs previously recorded, or at least sung, by other women; thus the title. There is a lot of range, from pretty hardcore flamenco (Carmen Linares' Taranta, etc.) to a strange and wonderful rendition of Jacques Brel's "Ne Me Quitte Pas", perhaps the greatest torch song ever written. People not familiar with flamenco should note that it is a music that, while rich in beauty, doesn't go in a lot for pretty- Morente can DO pretty, and does where appropriate, but most of this music has a lot of edge to it, and uses the huge power of her voice to great advantage. The accompaniments are either guitar or piano (with some handclaps thrown in) and are beautifully played- I suppose she gets pretty much whom she wants.
