Album Review

Arriving a long four years after Revolución de Amor (2002), which had been the band's most accomplished album to date, and a Grammy winner to boot, Amar Es Combatir confirmed Maná's continuing designation as the world's standard-bearing Spanish-language mainstream rock band. Amar Es Combatir's lead single, "Labios Compartidos," was an overnight chart-topper, and the album itself debuted at number four on Billboard's overall album chart, the highest debut ever for a Spanish-language release by a band or group. And make no mistake, such success was warranted, as Amar Es Combatir is not so much a stride forward creatively as it is a consolidation of everything that had earned Maná such a devoted international fan base in the first place. For better, and perhaps for worse, there are no surprises on Amar Es Combatir: the band delivers yet another slick set of soaring rockers (of which "Arráncane el Corazón" and "Tú Me Salvaste" are the highlights) interspersed with laid-back pleas of passion ("Ojala Pudiera Borrarte," "Bendita Tu Luz") and, of course, the obligatory heart-clutching power ballad or two à la "Vivir sin Aire," the band's timeless breakthrough hit from 1994 ("Labios Compartidos," "Tengo Muchas Alas"). The band's critics, who are legion, offered the same age-old complaints upon the album's release: the band repackages the same product each go round, the songs are awfully sappy for such a gruff-looking bunch of guys, and yes, the music isn't authentic — that is, it's not Latin enough. Regardless of whether you adore or hate Maná, there's no denying the appeal of Amar Es Combatir. This is a meticulous, impassioned, and all-around well-crafted album of what fans had come to expect from Maná, and if it lacks some of the courage of Revolución de Amor, Amar Es Combatir is nonetheless a standout rock en español effort circa 2006 and another laudable effort by the ever-reliable band.

Customer Reviews

Not their best, but not bad

I own every Mana album ever made, so naturally I was excited to buy this album. The best Mana albums are Donde Jugaran Los Ninos and Cuando Los Angeles Lloran. Since then, there have been some good songs, but nothing as creative as those two awesome albums. Amar Es Combatir sounds like one long song that never ends. If you don't know Spanish (I do), it will sound even more like this, similar to a Sting album. I would have expected more creativity from Mana, though. The good songs are Labios Compartidos, Tu Me Salvaste, El Rey Tiburon, and Relax. Buy those songs, and save yourself some money (unless you are like me and want the whole album). Wish I could give it 5 stars, but it lacks creativity. Similar to the new album by Live....good, but completely unlike the great music that made them famous. Shame on the producers.

Super evolution

He seguido la musica de mana por mucho tiempo y cada vez que sacan un nuevo trabajo me sorprende la calidad de produccion. Es buena musica, simple y directa. Llena de melodias que te dejan las canciones en la mente. Letras con lenguaje sencillo que cuentan historias que nos han pasado a todos. Very good job guys. William F. Rivera

BRILLIANT album from a BRILLIANT band!

What U2 is to Ireland, is what Maña is to Mexico. If you like Columbia's Juanes and pre-English Shakira, you will LOVE this band. "Labios Compartidos" is an awesome song. Definitely worth the download! Maña has been around for like 15 years delivering catchy rock songs, great instruments, and worth-reading spanish lyrics. Check out their "kust have" album "Sueños Liquidos".
