Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is Joan's most successful CD to date, and deservedly so. Though his voice is showing a few signs of wear, he's still a marvelous singer, and his songs are so full of poetry and candor.
The hit single from this CD is "Secreto de Amor", about a secret love affair, and has an infectious bolero rhythm. It's a slightly new sound for him, with a catchy refrain that you'll find yourself singing along with.
Another lovely song is "Amorcito Mio", also about a discreet love..."amorcito mio~mio tan del alma~mio tan escondido~mio tan especial"...my favorite track of all is "El Toro", about how to conquer sadness using the imagery of a bullfighter. The lyrics are terrific and wise, and the guitar work of Ramon Stagñaro is sensational, as it also is in another wonderful song, "Anoche Hablamos" about a "kiss and make-up" scenario.
The booklet insert has easy to read lyrics and info (so appreciated by me) and photos, including a lovely one of his son Julian, the subject of the last track on the CD.
Joan's melodic songs seem to be slices of his life, beautifully written lyrics that tell personal stories and shared with his listeners. He's one of my very favorites, a great artist with much to give the world.

A clandestine affair. A relationship just out of reach. Beauty. Passion. Suffering. And, the love for a son. Mr. Joan Sebastian has the love bases covered, to perfection. "Me Gustas" is the REALLY big hit on this CD. I had never even heard of Joan Sebastian until that song was being played on every street corner, in every supermarket and from every car radio in town, and I went out in search of that honey-smooth voice. "Anoche Hablamos" has a Julio Iglesias sound to it except for the "tu, tu, tu" of Juan Gabriel fame. Absorbing. The catchy "El Toro," a traditional rendering with "Bravos" and "Oles" is actually an analogy in which Sebastian likens suffering to bulls attacking the soul. Poor taste but good sounds. This whole CD is excellent. The only way it falls short is in quantity. It's only 34 minutes long, but 34 pleasing minutes they are.

Let's start with the final verdict: guilty of first degree superb music. For those of you who want a taste of great musical arrangements and poetry, well you'll find it here. For those of you who want some playfulness in song, you'll find it here too. For those who want folklore, here it is. If you want it with a country twang, ditto. A sensual love song? No problem. A simple story, or something with a dance rhythm? You should know the answer by now. Albums usually have one or two songs that grab and hold a listeners attention. Be ready to be carried away by this album. If you want to know the secret of a great cd, then listen to Secreto de Amor.

This was my first taste of Joan Sebastian's music,I had heard the song "Secreto de Amor" on a local Latino station and after several tries to listen carefully to the D.J.when he announced the title and artist,I gave up and asked a chicano friend if he knew the song,well luckily he did and got me headed in the right direction. I thought this would be a c.d. I'd like a song or two on and that would be it,since my Spanish is not that great,but what a surprise,this c.d. is so well produced it will blow you away whether you understand the language or not.It would be described I guess as Mexican "country".Joan is an incredible singer songwriter,every song is a hit in my book.I would recomend this C.D. to anyone who appreciates a little spice in their music.

Este es sin duda la mejor producción de Joan Sebastian, se puede dejar tocar todo el cd y todas las canciones son buenas... en especial Secreto de Amor y la que le dedicó a su ex-esposa Maribel Guardia: Un Idiota... en esta canción le pide perdón y le dice que la ama... una canción basada en un hecho real y muy personal cuando rompieron durante la grabación de la telenovela Tu y Yo por andar de resbaloso con la actriz Arlette Terán... el disco trae varios temas romanticos con sonidos modernos y los demás son muy buenos también... muy recomendado para cualquier alma bohemia
