Editorial Reviews

Diehard salsa fans have grumbled about the artistic liberties taken by genre queen India on Soy Diferente, her first disc under the Univision label. Indeed, this is an adventurous, all-over-the-map outing, most notable for its incorporation of the red-hot reggaeton rhythms currently burning up radio playlists. Purists may scoff and call it a play for commercial viability, but Soy Diferente is still a strong showcase for India's emotive, urgent vocal work. She also co-wrote all of the album's tracks. Fans should also recall that India dabbled in jazz, hip-hop and English-language club music before--and after--hitting her stride as a salsa queen. The title track is featured in both a reggaeton version and as a "salsaton" shaker, which flows seamlessly between the two genres. "Cuando Hieres A Una Mujer" is a straight-ahead salsa track, buoyed by the appearance of reggaeton diva Ivy Queen. Salsa legend Tito Nieves offers tempting vocal licks during "No Es Lo Mismo;" and India's mother, Gloria Viera, pops up during the sweet-and-spicy "Madre e Hija aka Madre." And India is still at her sizzling best amid the blaring horns and sweltering percussion of salsa tracks "Un Amor Obsesivo," "Lagrimas" and "Tengo Que Dejarte Ir." Whatever the sound, India effortlessly proves that being Diferente is definitely a great thing. --Joey Guerra

A la verdad que este cd me gusto de principio a fin. No se dejen llevar de los otros reviews, este cd vale la pena. Espere bastante para comprarlo al creerlo una porqueria, pero me equivoque. En este cd la mayoria de las canciones son en salsa incluyendo par de canciones en reggaeton. El reggaeton es lo que esta sonando so no me soprendio que ella incluyera par de canciones. Los productores son Isidro Infante, Sergio George y Emilio Estefan entre otros. Ustedes saben que las mejores canciones de la India han sido producido por Isidro Infante y Sir George. Un hit tras de otro. A la verdad que este me gusta mas que el disco anterior que tenia to ese chorro de baladas y que solo pego Seduceme que era la unica cancion que me gusto. Las canciones en reggaeton le quedaron bien, el beat y la melodia estan perfecto ni muy rapido o muy lento. Las canciones en salsa que se puede decir es La India, al principio estas suenan bien entonces poquito a poquito te dan con ganas de bailar cuando se acaba te quedas con las ganas de mas. Tambien tiene sus artistas invitados como Tito Nieves, Ivy Queen y Cheka ademas incluye un dueto con su madre. Canciones favoritas son: (Lagrimas, Un amor obsesivo, Soy diferente en las dos versiones salsaton y reggaeton, Solamente una noche en salsa y reggaeton y Bugarron que me da gana de reir.)

India, I admire that you can perform in so many different styles. Some people want to peg this talented artist in a single specific Genre and that's an injustice. Open your mind and heart and you'll be able to fly--Open minds took us from big mainframe computers to desktop, laptop,smart phones and now Tablets; Now, Our youths are invited to experience this gift of "India" in the Genre they listen to and create Today. Music is a universal communication tool...And Madre sends a love and gratitude message to our Mama's and that's important in these trying times for some of us and our youths have taken for granted "Mama". There's something for everyone on this CD; so, give it a chance.

As a huge admire of India's work, I must say I feel this album. Although many critics might scoff and say it was a "nice attempt better luck next time", I will totally dissagree. I dont knw about many but I have witness India perform tracks of this album live at clubs and I feel them. I love drving down HOLLYWOOD BLVD and bombing this CD off the wall......I hope she might come out with a live CD so many witness the power and emotion India delivers on stage. * Solamente Una Noche, Una Amor Obsesivo, Lagrimas, y Tengo Que Dejarte Ir are beautiful......My still favorite album must still be SOLA....wow messages in every song!

This cd contains music from some of the best musicians, songwriters, arrangers and of course female vocalist in Salsa. India is a class act and deservedly a living legend who continues to be true to the goal of creating quality music that no open hearts and minds can deny. Early in her career and under pressure to produce a string of salsa hits, she opted to make music with the legendary latin jazz maestro Eddie Palmieri, and then Tito Puente and the Count Basie Orchestra, speaking volumes to her integrity as an artist. In this cd she is back with Salsa, and yes, a sprinkle of reggaeton, which she performs with the same class and skill as we have heard from her in other genres. The combination of Salsa and Reggaeton is nothing new for those who know the music, and is helpful in keeping Salsa alive and relevant to the younger generation of music buyers. Salsa and reggageton also are mathmatically and musically compatible rhythms that can be integrated with one another seamlessly without disrupting your dancesteps or causing audio whiplash. Again, La India doesn't disappoint.

The big thing about "The Princess of Salsa", India, is she is always changing. All her albums go the next level. They are very traditional to salsa, but always bring someting new to the game. After her album "Sobre el Fuego" she only gets better. Her albums are energetic and powerful. "Soy Diferente" is no exception. You just look at the cover and see how different India look. It is a very different album, but does not fall too far away from Salsa. The title track is very energetic and even has a Reggaeton version. If you like Reggaeton or Salsa, the song comes in both and will definitely have you dancing. "Lagrimas" is very emotional. "Cuando Hieres a Una Mujer" is a nice duet with Ivy Queen. Tito Nieves helps her out on "No es lo mismo." The most emotional and touching song is probably "Madre E Hija." Reminds you of Sobre el Fuego's "Burlada Inocencia," but with a different touch. You can't forget "Solamente una noche" which also includes a Reggaeton version. The last track "Bugarron" is one of the most unique in the album. Fans, rejoice once again.

This album is great, like any other cd that I get when I like it I have to constantly play it. I have heard of India but never heard of her music. So when I was able to go to amazon.com and listen to the samples I just fell in love with her music and the way she sings. Anybody who purchases this I guarantee that you will enjoy and fall in love to.
