Album Review

From norteño to banda to mariachi, regional Mexican music has seriously dominated the roster of Fonovisa Records and has been the Los Angeles-based company's bread and butter. But occasionally, the Univision-distributed Fonovisa steps outside of regional Mexican music; Fonovisa has done it with Noelia and Arthur Hanlon, and they do it with Puerto Rican singer Juan on his debut album, Con Mi Soledad ("With My Loneliness"). There isn't a trace of norteño, banda, mariachi, duranguense, tierra caliente, grupero, tejano, or any other type of regional Mexican music on this late 2007 release; Juan's focus is romantic Latin pop, and much of Con Mi Soledad is devoted to what is essentially Latin adult contemporary. Ballads dominate this 35-minute CD, most of them power ballads. In fact, the term power ballad easily describes what Juan does on "Abandonados" ("Abandoned"), "Buscando Tu Sombra" ("Searching for Your Shadow"), "Devuélveme la Vida" ("Give Me Back My Life") and the title track. Not everything on Con Mi Soledad is a ballad, however. For example, "Así Es Mi Vida" ("That's What My Life Is Like") is one of the disc's more uptempo tracks, and that song is mildly salsa-ish even though it is a Latin pop tune first and foremost. But for the most part, Con Mi Soledad doesn't have a strong tropical flavor. Juan's primary stomping ground isn't salsa, merengue, bachata, or plena — it's slick, glossy Latin pop with romantic adult contemporary leanings. And while the material on this disc is not earth shattering, Con Mi Soledad is still a pleasant and competent debut from this Puerto Rican pop singer.

Buen CD

Tiene diferentes tipos de generos para todos los gustos, muy bueno tambien pq tiene las canciones con las cuales se hizo famoso en objetivo fama 4

100% Juan

This is a great CD I liked everysong and I am a huge fan of Juan he sounds the same live as the cd!

Juan's first album.

Even from the very beggining of the the fourth season of "Objetivo Fama", it was very obvious (to me anyways) that Juan was going to win. In my opinion, he had the best performances and definitley the best voice. I think he does a good job on his first CD. The songs are all pretty good, and his voice is top notch. I think the songs are good, but I can't really see any of them becoming a huge hit or anything. Not because of Juan, but because of the songs themselves. They're all just pretty average to me. (Except for "Todo Sigue Igual", and "Buscando Tu Sombra") But their is absolutley no doubt in my mind that Juan is a great singer with enormous potential. If you're a fan of good latin music or "Objetivo Fama", you should definitley get this CD. I guess I'm trying to say that it's "good but not great". But Juan's voice makes most of the songs more than passable. This is, of course, just my opinion.
