Juan Gabriel has continued to inspire me, even after his death. His arrangements and lyrics are so beautiful. It is so hard to translate those lyrics into English, because you will lose some of (if not all) the actual meaning. However, with his brilliant mind, he was able to transfer the deepest feelings of music to any and all who hear those chords, those runs, those strings, those trumpets... With his music, you can truly appreciate the inexplicable language that is able to communicate with anyone-- anywhere. This album is bright and full of beautiful arrangements, showcasing some of Mexico's most brilliant artists. I will admit that not all of the songs on the album are my favorite. However, if you are looking for an album that is a great representation of Mariachi Music, this would be a perfect fit. The more I listen to him, the more I am able to read the story-- and see his progression-- behind his art. Throughout his 40+ year career, that is quite a story! It is worth getting to know him. He truly was, and will always be, a giant in the music world. Gracias maestro!
