Mexican singer Christian Castro has always been a great singer in search of equally compelling material. Most of his albums (Mi Vida Sin Tu Amor, Azul, Amar Es), however, afford only a few notable songs amid so much overproduced, uninspired commercial fluff. Hoy Quiero Sonar finally gets the mix right, pairing Castro's soaring voice with material that captures a good sense of his essence as a singer. Hitmakers Kike Santander and Rudy Perez are still cranking out the material, but they finally seem to have an understanding of what Castro is all about. The arrangements are lush and beautiful but still understated enough to keep Castro front and center. Even uptempo cuts like "Vamos a Bailar" and "Una Cancion Para Ti," sound fresh and up-to-date, often a puzzlingly difficult task for Spanish-language balladeers. Many of the album's best cuts, including "Imagina," "Quedate en Mis Brazos" and "Yo Dudo Que con El," are accented with mariachi flourishes. It's an inspired move and one that Castro would be wise to integrate into more of his music in the future. --Joey Guerra

I would like to start of by saying I did not know who Christian Castro Was untill 1999 when I heard the song Mi Vida Sin Tu Amor and got the cd for Christmas. Now this if my 5th cd from Christian. I got Christian's new cd for the song Te Buscaria. When I frist heard the song I was ready to drop on the floor. I had never heard such a betiful song such as Te Buscaria. But thats not the only song that I like. I think the whole cd is very nice. Christian's last cd was good but it was not the best in the world. I think this one is better. There is a piture of Christian and his wife on the inside back cover. I satrt my collection off with Christian's 1997 cd and up. And I think the best I have heard is His 1997 cd but this is a very nice cd also. If you are a Christian Castro fan you should buy it.

Cristian Castro has a couple of albums in which he sings great hits by Jose Jose. He does and excellent job and gives them his own touch, but the songs will always be remembered as originals and great hits by Jose Jose. On this album however, Cristian Castro has a few songs that in my opinion, put him at Jose Jose's level. Cristian's voice comes across strong, with impact and sentiment that leaves one breathless; the lyrics by the way are absolutely beautiful. This is one of Cristian's best albums and one he can call his own.

well after the last CD I was not sure where he was going with his music but I must say that this CD is fantastic. He does what he does best - sing lovesongs. He is able to capture the joys and the sorrows of a love affair so well. I look forward to his next CD or DVD of his videos or a concert.

"Hoy quiero sonar" is one of Cristian's best albums. His voice still seems to take my breath away. It's still as soft and romantic as ever. This is the perfect album to listen to while having a romantic evening with your husband or boyfriend. Just give it a try. I think you will enjoy it. If you like this album you might also try,

"Azul"

"Mi Vida Sin Tu Amor"

"Amar Es"

"Lo Mejor De Mi."

I ENJOYED THIS ALBUM AND THE BEST SONG I LIKE IS "SILENCIO".

THIS SONG I FEEL WILL BE A CLASSIC!

NOTICED THE SONG WAS WRITTEN BY THE SAME WRITERS AS DAVID BISBAL

"DIGALE" LEUZZI AND SANTANDER. THAT WAS ANOTHER GREAT CLASSIC.
