Born in Tijuana, México, Julieta began studying music at 10 years of age, mastering musical composition and vocal performance, as well as several musica instruments, including guitar, cello, accordion, percussion, piano and keyboards. Julieta has been a 3 time MTV music/video award winner, and has taken home no less than 5 Grammy awards for her previous efforts.
"Otra Cosa" is her 6th studio release, and 8th album release all told, including the 2007 collection "Realmente lo Mejor" (really the best), and her 2008 MTV Unplugged live performance release (not including contributions she has made to recordings released by other artists and the song she contributed to the soundtrack of the film, Maria Full of Grace).
On one hand, with the name "Otra Cosa" ([an]Other Thing in English), one might expect something a little different, something surprising and new.
The truth is, however, that Julieta has not, in this latest disc, deviated from the path that has already made her a great success.
Of course, if it ain't broke, don't fix it, right?
"Otra Cosa" is replete with the same well-crafted, catchy, smart tunes we've come to expect from Mexican pop-star and super-cutie, Julieta Venegas. It's GREAT music with catchy, witty, fun, heartfelt, and often insightful lyrics.
Existing fans will NOT be disappointed, no horrific departures from the known or unpleasant suprises. Just the same great stuff.
When those new to Julieta's music hear what they've been missing, they will be wondering why they hadn't already become fans long ago.
For those who are new to Julieta's great, latin-american, alt-pop tunes, I also highly recommend her prior albums, Bueninvento,,Limón y Sal, and, of course, her live/acoustic disc, MTV Unplugged. From the MTV disc, especially don't miss the great songs she recorded with Brazilian pop-legend, Marisa Monte (two such beautiful, talented singers on stage together = w0w!).

I love Julieta Venegas and her new album is very good, more laid back with a little less of the "pop" sound that I seemed to have really enjoyed on her previous album limon y sal but still a very good CD. I would recommend it- tunes are good and she always delivers!!! Bueno!

El nuevo disco de Julieta Venegas no es realmente una otra cosa, es la única nuevo disco es uno de los mejores compilaciones de canciones del este ano. Como siempre Julieta corta un camino directo a tu corazón, y después ella llénalo con amor y sentimientos delicados. Es una lastima que ella no tiene unos discos en ingles, porque pienso que todo el mundo necesita la voz perfecta de Julieta. El álbum empieza con la canción "Amores Platónicos" es un mensaje a todos los hombres en la vida de Julieta que pueden estar una parte de su vida, pero no pueden ser una parte. En su disco pasado las canciones de amor eran dulces compañías a sus oídos, pero en Otra Cosa las canciones son mucho mas profundo. Esto es tanto verdadero en mi favorita canción "Eterno." En "Eterno" Julieta domina el tiempo para hacer un momento eterno y completamente perfecto. Es una canción perfecta, en mi opinión. Una otra canción perfecta del disco Otra Cosa es "Revolución." "Revolución" es una canción sobre los cambios que una persona puede tener en las otras. Julieta (con unos niños) canta "dime te causo una revolución, dime te hago cambiar tu canción, dime te hare volver empezar." La belleza del trabajo de Julieta Venegas es su habilidad para decir las cosas en las mentes de todas las personas en el mundo con una frase sencilla y lírica. ¡Diosa de las letras! Es obvio que puse esto álbum fue perfecto, a pesar de mi español malo.

I remember her first 2 albums. So true. Now she's just cranking out pop songs.
Boring and uninspired. How many love songs can you write?

I am a big fan of Julieta, and even though this is a good album, I have to say it is probably the worst in her career. After listening to it a few times, I just wanted to go back and play Limon y Sal or other previous albums. We would like to see "sweat" Julieta, and less "sweet" Julieta. I just hope that the experience of being a mother will fill her soul with new experiences to share with her audience, instead of pushing her more to a comfort zone.

Julieta Venegas has been one of my favorite female artists and I have liked every one of her albums and this one is no exception. It's a fun and happy, upbeat album I listen to almost everyday

Julieta Venegas is a Latin singer/song writer who has move of an India Arie vibe to her music which I call easy listening. But nonetheless she is a great singer. This album is wonderful.
