Thalia's first album on the EMI Latin label finds the Mexican singer and soap-opera starlet moving away from the disposable pop of her earlier discs in favor of richer, more diverse sounds. There are a few limp moments on En Extasis, but Thalia is clearly coming into her own as a singer. The switch is in large part thanks to producers Emilio Estefan Jr. and Kike Santander, who expertly disguise Thalia's shortcomings as a vocalist with slick production values. "Piel Morena," the album's first single and best track, is an intoxicating, sexy cumbia. Thalia shines on "Amándote," a dance track produced by A.B. Quintanilla III , and she even manages a sweet rendition of Juan Gabriel's "Gracias a Dios." The ballads "Quiero Hacerte el Amor" and "Lágrimas" (the latter cowritten by Thalia) also draw attention to unexpected shadings and nuances. --Joey Guerra

Ask any Latino and they'd most probably sing in unison "Piel Morena... Ay caramba" :D

If my reason for listening to Latin Music is "Amor A La Mexicana", "En Extasis" is my reason to die for it. I'd die for every note played, I'd die for every voice Thalia sang in this album.

If people find me overenthusiastic, so go and listen to the CD yourself... NO ONE ELSE CAN EVER DO IT BETTER THAN THALIA, EMILIO ESTEFAN JR., KIKE SANTANDER, THE CRESCENT MOON TEAM.

I adore LATIN MUSIC. I adore every bit of an EMILIO ESTEFAN JR. product. I'd be a slave for Thalia's one note of "Quiero Hacerte El Amor".

This CD is not essential, this CD is THE SIGN FROM GOD, MAKING US BELIEVE IN HEAVEN ON EARTH.

As the Americans say... THALIA ROCKS!!!

Hello!
I love this CD because it showcases Thalia's exceptional talent in singing different types/kinds of songs. I particularly like the "Me Faltas Tu" song because I only not like the haunting sad love song it has but how Thalia sung it. It has full of emotion and feelings that somehow you feel sympathetic to its song's story. I also like the jazzy songs of "Me Erotizas", "Llevame Contigo" and "Fantasia"! I also like "Piel Morena" and "Amandote". "En Extasis" is my favourite Thalia record album to date! This is an excellent CD! If you like Spanish songs, I recommend you to buy this particular CD. Thalia has a very beautiful voice! A great artist! By the way, even though, Spanish is not my first language, I was able to learn the meaning of the lyrics of this record album because I love Thalia's music that much.
Bye!

Thalia's album "En Extaisis" is Thalia's Best work, yes even better than "Amor A La Mexicana". This album showcases Thalia's fantastic voice. Her unique voice brings this album a romantic and etoxicating attitude. This album is loaded with ballads, something that did not happen with her later album "Amor A La Mexicana". This album is a MUST HAVE!!! She even co-wrote a song "Lagrimas" dedicated to her boyfriend who passed away a year before the release of her album. Thalia is an awesome performer, she puts on fabulous shows. Thalia's crossover will mean major hit, and major competition for the U.S. Divas ...

Para mí es siempre muy fácil escribir un review musical...casi a diario lo hago de una infinitud de discos. Sin embargo no sé lo que me pasa siempre que me propongo a hablar de "En Extasis"...

La verdad es que no encuentro palabras suficientes o adecuadas para describir la calidad de ese disco que, para mi, es uno de los mejores (latinos) de los 90's. Es increíble la dulzura y potencia de la gran voz de Thalia y todavía mas increíble la mezcla perfecta de sonidos como el jazz, salsa, dance, bolero, bossa nova y hasta algunos de origen arabe.

Y que decir de las composiciones? "Lagrimas en mi alma que ahogan mis palabras/Empapando de recuerdos cada instante sin ti/Lagrimas en mi alma que nublan la mirada/Y me hacen entender que aún existes para mi" (Lagrimas, Thalia) - "Cuando estoy contigo no me importa nada/Sólo tu cariño, sólo tus palabras/Le doy gracias a la vida, le doy gracias al amor/Por haber nascido en el mismo siglo tu y yo" (Gracias A Dios, Juan Gabriel) - "Tengo la alondra por mi ventana/Cruzando el cielo azul/Tengo el rocio de la mañana/Pero me faltas tu/Tengo el derroche de tantas noches/Que da la juventud/Tengo mil besos que lleva al viento/Pero me faltas tu....y es que me faltas tu..."(Me Faltas Tu, Kike Santander) Creo que ellas dicen por si solas...!

*Mejores canciones: "Piel Morena", "Quiero Hacerte El Amor", "Me Erotizas", "Gracias A Dios", "Lagrimas y "Me Faltas Tu".*

No sé lo que sucedió a Thalia: en aquél entoces era sencilla, sincera, hacía buena musica, tenía mucho frescor y singularidad, escribía sus canciones, cantava con mucha fuerza y pasión... y ya no!

well i am certainly quieted on this one. thalia has done some impressive work here and to me, made a breakthrough in the shadow of her own legend. obviously, she is a mega-star who is recognized by billions of people all over the world, and especially in mexico. i just have to say- juana j is so cute! what an adorable song!!! she sang actually- BEAUTIFULLY on this one- nice, fragile vocals. her little laugh thing on the chorus was so infectious and made a memorable touch to the song. she doesn't have to be an exceptionally endowed vocal prowess like mariah carey- i think a tiny, thin, sweet voice is also enchanting in its own right. i was really impressed- see songs like this i really like- most people would describe them as childish but to me, i find them charming, because these are songs you rarely hear. i mean- WHO records in a style that is truly cutesy and even a little young? britney spears may do teen-pop, but even she is ever-striving to record in a more mature style- mature mature mature- everyone's always striving to be mature these days. i think they should unleash the inner child! fun songs would be in order. i'm so sick of the recycled- "minor key" hit pops songs with usually a darker sound to them. do u know what i'm saying? like, as opposed to a bright, happy pop song, like maybe mariah's "dreamlover"- a more prevalent hit today would be britney spears hit "baby one more time" or "oops i did it again". i'm not so thrilled for those type of tunes. i like a happier song. to me its just catchier. aneway, getting back to thalia, i even like the title of the album "in ecstasy"- its a nice idea and image to sell, though thank god she didn't take off all her clothes in the process.Read more ›
