Album Review

Otra Cosa, the eagerly awaited fifth studio album by Julieta Venegas, is remarkably similar to her previous two, Sí (2003) and Limón y Sal (2006). The similarity is remarkable because both those albums were all-around excellent, loaded with Latin pop hits and first-rate album tracks. There wasn't a bad track on either album, and Otra Cosa is likewise rock-solid, starting off with three fantastic songs in a row, "Amores Platónicos," "Bien o Mal," and "Despedida." Moreover, all three albums are similar in style, produced by Cachorro López and comprised of upbeat pop songs with clever lyrics, rich melodies, and a range of instrumentation (guitar, piano, accordion, and beats, above all). Otra Cosa was eagerly awaited in part because of the four years since Limón y Sal. During that time, Venegas became one of the most popular and critically acclaimed Latin pop artists in the world. She was already well established in her native Mexico, of course, where she was a Top Ten artist as early as her first album, Aquí (1998), yet it took awhile for the rest of the Spanish-language world to catch on. Venegas crossed over internationally with Sí and Limón y Sal, which signaled her switch from alternative rock to Latin pop and won her a bunch of Latin Grammys in the process, and she furthered her success with the greatest-hits album Realmente Lo Mejor (2007) and the spectacular MTV Unplugged (2008). At the height of her success, Venegas withdrew from public and spent much of 2009 in the tranquility of her home, working on dozens of new songs in her home studio. In time, she teamed up with López in his Buenos Aires studio, and they put the finishing touches on what would become album five. Otra Cosa isn't quite as impressive as its two predecessors, only because one has come to expect nothing except brilliance from Venegas, especially as a songwriter. It's also a bit less impressive because it's more subdued and insular than last time, the sound of an ace singer/songwriter working from the comforts of home. For instance, there's nothing as lively as "Eres para Mí," the smash hit pop-rap collaboration with Anita Tijoux from Limón y Sal. The late-album highlights, "Ya Conocerán" and "Eterno" are about as energized as this album gets, and the collaborations with Ale Sergi of Miranda and Adrian Dargelos of Babasónicos aren't anything special.

Customer Reviews

Julieta rocks!!!

Suena a Bueninvente mesclado con Limon y Sal, lo vial nos da una combinacion con sabor energetico ke nos mantiene escuchandolo consecutivamente una y otra vez! Definitivamente un regreso grande con canciones projectadas ya como hits: bien o mal, ya conoceran, despedida, y eterno. Muchas bendiciones Julieta te amamos!!!

A must have if...

you call urself a Julieta fan. The Album is refreshing, and it proves that not every artist now a days is full of ....you know.... but anyways, I recommend the whole album of course, but if you r not sure yet, try buying Ya Conoceran, this song is the sad one from the album, it basically talks about how everyone tries to comfort u after a breakup or something of that occurance by telling you everything will be ok, but in reality it is not as easy, it hurts and you want the pain to be gone. I also recommend Otra Cosa, Bien o Mal, Amores Platonicos, and Despedida. those four songs are probly the top ones in my opinion. Try them out and if you find yourself hoocked buy the album! You won't regret it, and remember, Julieta Venegas never disappoints!

WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW

No cabe duda de ke julieta si tiene estilo uniko para cada disco, xfavor julieta danos mas musica asi komo tus ultimos 3 discos, me encanta tu musica, creo k estoy enamorado de ti :)
