Alejandro Sanz is undoubtedly one of the biggest artist in Latin music history! With more than eighteen million albums sold worldwide, sold-out concert tours and multiple awards, he has invariably acheived international superstar status. Alejandro Sanz is now set to deliver his most anticipated release, No El Lo Mismo. This latest production by this Spanish hearthrob is comprised of eleven new songs and represents his first studio album in over two years. This will be Sanz's seventh album and teh first to be produced by Sanz himself with the help of Cuban musician Lulo P-+z. No El Lo Mismo, is a blend of all the characteristic styles and arrangements that have made Alejandro Sanz such a popular artist. Thanks to the participation of musicians such as Michael Landau (guitar), Vinnie colauita and Horacio Hernandez (drums), Anthony Jackson (base), Luis Conte (percussion) and the collaboration of Paco de Lucia (Spanish guitar), this production will surely be one of Alejandro Sanz's best ever.
On his first studio album in three years, No Es Lo Mismo ("It's Not the Same"), Spanish superstar Alejandro Sanz expands his musical horizons in hopes of reaching a bigger Stateside audience. Already an accomplished songwriter (he wrote tracks for Ricky Martin's and Alexandre Pires' current albums) Sanz co-produced No Es Lo Mismo with Cuban musician Lulo Perez, and the new collaboration gives much of the album a crisp, fresh sound. Still grounded in the lush rhythms of flamenco, Sanz adds rock, earthy instrumentation, and even rap to the mix, with mostly impressive results. The first single and title track builds to a rousing crescendo amid solid percussion and vocal support, while Sanz amusingly dabbles in hip-hop on the bilingual "Try To Save Your S'ong." However, love ballads and social themes are trademarks of Sanz's repertoire, and there are enough of both here to satisfy longtime fans and pique new listener interest. --Joey Guerra

And to all those who keep writing that he can't rap, well, duh, of course not, he didn't grow up in urban america. That's why he collaborates with other to interpret his work. But he is not shabby at all when it comes to conjuring some rap lyrics (listen to #4). And yeah, as you know, he writes everything, music, and lyrics, including the rap in "Try to save your Song"? (he even sounds "rappy" on some other Spanish songs anyway). In this CD for the first time, he can get away with these experimentations, and the results are delightful to hear. You only have to listen to "Tiene que ser pecado", #9 on his previous "El alma al aire" CD, to know that he's progressed!
He aqui un artista que desea un crossover para simplemente compartir su música y sus emociones. Go buy this CD, get it in cyberspace if you must, but whatever you do, don't steal music! Que lástima que la gente de la Cuba no podrá escuchar la letra de LABANA, pero los Cubanos del continente si lo harán y los latinos que extrañamos nuestras tierras lo estamos haciendo. Pero que mas da, si "cuenta 4 que se va Fidel" (#6).
In "No es lo mismo"" Alex's extremes are showcased like never before, and this covers everything from uplifting rhythms to cathartic heartbreaking sounds. "He sido tan feliz contigo", #3 is one of the most gut wrenching ones he's done in a while. Yet #6 is my favorite, probably, because of its danceability. Very "Corazón partío". I was listening to it in the car the other day, and people out in the streets were dancing to it, and I live in freaking Boston!
Oh, if you think Alejandro hasn't evolved, compare the sound of #8, "12 POR 8", to #5 in MAS ("La margarita dijo no"). Uhm, unless I'm mistaken, I think he's finally gotten down the youth-choir-as-background-vocals concept.
Y para ser francos, si Alejandro dejara de fumar le mejoraría tanto la voz, y la capacidad de expresar ese talento y sentimiento (aunque dudo que siga fumando ahora que es padre de familia). Hagas lo que hagas, Alejandro, sigue practicando inglés, es divertido ser bilingu:e. And may you, Maestro Sanz, continue evolving and your creativity continue to pour down my speakers for many many many more CDs to come.
The dreaming days though are not over, are not the mainstream now, and it's understandable, that some fans may feel disappointed. In fact, I really discovered Alejandro with El alma al aire. Before that, I just didn't like his music because sounded too plastic, although he has always been and is an excellent composer.
I like very much Try to save your s'ong and 12 por 8. However they are not rap or even hip hop songs, but a mix. And as so, I like it... R&B and relatives are a cultural phenomenom right now. It's mainstream and I see no way it may not influence any song writer/composer. He chose to incorporate the influence and I really like what he got.
No es lo mismo, fortunately, is no the same. It's better or worse, but not the same... he's an artist after all.
