Rumor has it that this great duo will no longer be recording any new musical material. If this is true then it will be sad to see this happen. You see, this duo released their first album in the early 90's but it wasn't until the mid 90's that I discovered their music. After hearing their first cd "Relatos de Una Intriga," I was mesmerized. And afterwards I quickly went out to purchase their second and third albums, "La Ultima Tentacion" and "La Profecia," respectively. Now this latest, but hopefully not their final album has come to make part of "Amistades Peligrosas'" masterpieces. This album is composed of several different types of music: pop, polka, balads and new age. Probably this is why this album is named "Nueva Era." As if this spectacular music isn't great enough to make this an enjoyable cd, then we must also consider the lyrics. They are beautifully written, powerful yet at times moving. The lyrics range from different situations in life, which has been a trademark for "Amistades Peligrosas." As usual the religious themes are always present such as in "Apunta Dispara" which tells of mankind going to war only to feel abandoned by their "almighty savior, god." Then there is "Mas Circo y Mas Pan" which tells of how politicians cheat civilians, rob, and discriminate against foreigners. "Menina das Favelas" tells of a young servant girl that has never known what being a kid is about, she lives only to serve royalty. Finally there is "Quitame este Velo" which refers to women in the Middle East that must keep their bodies covered at all times, and their plea to feel free to be able to show their faces to the world.Read more ›

One of the most popular bands to come out of Spain during the 90s, "Amistades peligrosas" achieves in this record a new level of musical maturity. With rythms and sounds clearly influenced by north African and arabic music, this work takes the band into the realm of Religion, Spiritualism and some other Universal themes that had been absent from their previous productions. For anyone who's into World Music with a jazzy twist, or for those diehard fans, this is certainly Amistades Peligrosas best album ever.

Amistades Peligrosas burst upon my scene when I was taking introductory Spanish classes in Los Angeles, Ca. This CD greatly enhanced my enthusiasm for learning the language. As I roared off in the morning to school listening to the bagpipes wail the melody, the drums pounding, and the exciting gitano vocals of Cristina going "Ay ay yay!", I was totally charged with the engergy this band had, so much that I'd walk into class singing "Tu sabras o pala o escuela..." eliciting comments from other students about how fluent I already was. Amistades Peligrosas's "Nueva Era" is all great, from beginning to end, a guaranteed ticket to a great enjoyable listening experience.

The only downside that I can see to the CD I have now is that it is missing two of the best songs that should be on there, "Aicha" and "Lost Restos de Santiago". The vocals on both those those songs are lovely, and haunting, too. They were on the original "Nueva Era" CD I had owned, which was stolen, so I bought another one through Amazon, but it lacks those two songs. The new editions don't have them,I have found out, but some of the used ones do, most of which are in relatively good condition. So a word of warning to buyers, a caveat if you will: be sure that the "Nueva Era" CD you purchase has those two songs, in order to get full picture of who Amistades Peligrosas is and what their vision was on this album. Don't settle for anything less. This was a great band, and there music endures.

Well I am an Spanish boy, mesmerised about those opinions I've come across. I must admit that the rumour of the divorce of Amistades Peligrosas is nowadays a reality which came across 4 years ago in 1998. It was a shock for all their fans here in Spain but I have good news for those who liked Amistades Peligrsoas songs... They still sing in their own. The two components of Amistades Peligrosas are: Alberto Comesaña (The man) and Cristina del Valle (the girl). Alberto has released one cd called "Perversiones".
Cristina has released two cd's. The first one in 1999, called "El dios de las pequeñas cosas". It is a travel trough a world of ethnic sounds similar to her last cd in Amistades Peligrosas "Nueva Era".
The second one, called "Apuntes generales del mundo" is the best cd she has ever made. In it Cristina shows her sweet voice across new sounds and sensations, with lyrics from the best composers in Spain.
If you really enjoyed Amistades Peligrosas, I garantee you will discover a new world in Cristina's music, a new experience which will go further from what Amistades Peligrosas was and mean...

I first heard Amistades Peligrosas in Ecuador. I first heard "Me Quedare Solo". I loved it. I was sure to buy their first cd just for that song. I noticed that they had a new cd, but I was skeptical on buying it just because I hadn't heard much of it. Months later, I spotted the cd on sale for half price and I decided to buy it on chance. Boy, did I get a deal! As soon as I listened to it, I was hooked. It wasn't long before I put their other cd, "La Profecia" back in the case and back on the shelf. In fact, once I was traveling with my sister and I convinced her to put on this cd, she didn't want to because she doesn't speak spanish. After the cd finished, she said, "we can listen to it again if you want to!" I love the intro song to the cd, it reminded me of Enigma. Also, if you like the sound of bag pipes you'll love this album. Many of the songs are faster beat, and I love their slower songs too. I was very impressed with their work. Buy this cd!
