Arrasando

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jason Birchmeier
If En Extasis and its breakthrough hit, "Piel Morena," established Thalía as a prospective Latin pop artist in 1995, and if the Emilio Estefan, Jr.-produced Amor a la Mexicana established her as a sizzling sensation in 1997, then her likewise Estefan-produced Arrasando firmly established her as a full-fledged superstar in 2000, when it began spinning off its five hit singles. The album is a trendy one, very much of its time -- that is, right at the turn of the millennium, when high-intensity, trancy dance music was all the rage in fashionable circles. The bulk of Arrasando plays to that style, with its abundance of synthesizers and dance beats, as well as its ecstatic ...

All Music Guide - Jason Birchmeier
If En Extasis and its breakthrough hit, "Piel Morena," established Thalía as a prospective Latin pop artist in 1995, and if the Emilio Estefan, Jr.-produced Amor a la Mexicana established her as a sizzling sensation in 1997, then her likewise Estefan-produced Arrasando firmly established her as a full-fledged superstar in 2000, when it began spinning off its five hit singles. The album is a trendy one, very much of its time -- that is, right at the turn of the millennium, when high-intensity, trancy dance music was all the rage in fashionable circles. The bulk of Arrasando plays to that style, with its abundance of synthesizers and dance beats, as well as its ecstatic choruses, which seem to reach for the stars song after song. Trance music was peaking around this time, remember, and that style of dance music, which was the club sound of Europe and the coastal cities of the U.S., certainly informs Estefan's production here. It works relatively well for Thalía. That's because she's not so much a singer as she is a personality, admittedly a very attractive one. So for much of Arrasando she mainly rides the rhythms, wrapping herself in bombastic production laden with synthesizer stabs and overdubbed background vocals. The result is probably too much for anyone not inclined to dance madly; this especially goes for the title track, which is tailor-made for peak-hour club play. However, there are several slower songs that help relieve the intensity, most notably the airy "Entre el Mar y una Estrella" and the soothing "No Hay Que Llorar." Once the opening run of singles comes to an end, the album ironically gets more interesting, as Thalía tries out different styles to varying yet generally fun effect. The album closes with "Rosalinda," the theme song of Thalía's telenovela of the time. It's the most traditionally Mexican song on the set and does stand out because of that, but again, in a fun sort of way, especially given its substance and its album-closing sequencing. To step back for a moment and put Arrasando in perspective, it certainly differs from its predecessor Amor a la Mexicana and successor Thalia. All are among her best efforts, with Arrasando being probably the most contrived. It's more adventurous than the streamlined Thalia, yet it's not as free-flowing as Amor a la Mexicana. Of the three, it surely sounds the most dated, and for all these reasons, it's a strangely curious album, very evocative of its time.

    The Masterpiece

    If you listen to Thalia's music so up until this album, you will realize that this is her masterpiece. Her albums are all at least 4-stars or above, but this is the best of the best. The tracks "Arrasando", "Entre El Mar Y Una Estrella", "Regresa a mi", "Reencarnacion", and "Rosalinda" recieved the most airplay, but the rest of the tracks are on the smae level. But this Cd if its the only thing you buy from the one and only, Thalia!

    Thalia Comes Arrasando!

    This album contains many different kinds of songs and rhythms. It includes the smash hit ''Entre El Mar Y Una Estrella''. Also, the dance/pop hits ''Regresa A Mi'' and ''Reencarnacion'', and the Rap/Dance hit ''Arrasando''. Some other incredibly cool songs are ''Menta Y Canela'', ''Tumba La Casa'', ''No Hay Que Llorar'', etc. All the songs in this album are excellent.

    ''Arrasando'' has some true gems

    I had to buy this album after I heard the first single, ''Entre el Mar y Una Estrella'' played on the radio over and over when I was on vacation in L.A. What a beautiful song. Overall, I was not disappointed with the album. I loved two other songs on the CD - ''Regresa a Mi'', a beautiful dance track, and ''Rosalinda'', a spunky, fresh cumbia. It will be tough for Thalia to top this album.

    Same old

    I'm getting rid of this CD. It tries every style, but fails at all. Thalia's voice has no passion; her lyrics are trite. This ''music'''s driving force is evident to me: $$. There are plenty of Latin stars who are artistically superior but don't get nearly as much exposure.

    WOW~

    WOW~ This CD is full of surprises with a lot of rythm, Loaded with ton's lyrics that will make you want to listen and come to understand what life, people, and love can be all about. If you like dancing this Cd will knock you're socks off. If you're the kinda person that likes to listen to something smoothing and relaxing Thalia's alluring and sultry voice will surely tempt the ear with a few romantic and healing songs aswell. If you're ready to hear a rising star then buy this Cd now because it's has a lot of great content to it! Good Luck!
