'Thalia' falls short on expectations
on May 30, 2002
First of all, let me say that I am a fan of Thalia work. This includes her soap operas as well as her music. In my opinion, her best musical work is still "Arrasando." While I expected 'Thalia' to be as innovative as 'Paulina,' this was not the case. The first single 'Tu Y Yo' is somewhat of a remake of her earlier hit 'Pacto Entre Los Dos.' Like the rest of the album, the songs sound outdated. I will give props for the inclusion of the 'Tu Y Yo' Kumbia King remix. The remix is incredible and sure to be a dancefloor favorite. The same can be said for her remake of Dead or Alive's "You Spin Me Round." I am sure this has to do with DJ/Remixer/Producer superstar Hex Hector helming the production of this song. If the EMI marketing group knows what they are doing, they will promote this song to the US market. I understand that Hex has remixed "En La Fiesta Mando Yo." I am really looking forward to hearing that mix. To those thinking of buying it, buy it because it is Thalia. However, just becuase she worked with the same people that produced "Paulina," do not expect it to be anything as musically diverse or innovative as "Paulina." Thalia, I love you and I am looking forward to hearing the english cd. One advice--continue working with HEX.
