All Music Guide - Jason Birchmeier
Thalía reunited with superproducer Emilio Estefan, Jr., for Lunada, a beach-themed album that was released a year after she took some time off to have her first child. Thalía had worked with Estefan from the mid-'90s through the early 2000s, and the collaboration proved consistently fruitful, resulting in the best albums of her career. While Lunada unfortunately isn't a return to the glory days of Amor a la Mexicana (1997), it's an entertaining album with a few great songs. Lunada is entertaining from a stylistic standpoint above all.

Thalía reunited with superproducer Emilio Estefan, Jr., for Lunada, a beach-themed album that was released a year after she took some time off to have her first child. Thalía had worked with Estefan from the mid-'90s through the early 2000s, and the collaboration proved consistently fruitful, resulting in the best albums of her career. While Lunada unfortunately isn't a return to the glory days of Amor a la Mexicana (1997), it's an entertaining album with a few great songs. Lunada is entertaining from a stylistic standpoint above all. Every song but one (the mid-album ballad "Desolvidándote") is upbeat, driven by hard-hitting beats, tropical rhythms, and an energized performance by Thalía, who sounds happy to be back in the studio after her sabbatical. The lead single, "Ten Paciencia," gets the album off a great start, propelled by a jumpy cumbia rhythm tailor-made for the dancefloor. The next two songs, "Sangre Caliente" and "Será Porque Te Amo," are also highlights, but the remainder of the album is less impressive. Among the more noteworthy remaining songs are "Bendita," a reggae song with motherly lyrics written by Thalía; "Insensible," a song by Juan Gabriel; and "Aventurero," a reggaeton-lite collaboration with reggae-pop star Sean Paul. Some of these latter songs work well, others not so well for one reason or another, but either way, they're entertaining from a stylistic standpoint. In the end, Lunada is helped by the frontloaded highlights and the short running time (less than 40 minutes). Longtime fans of Thalía who expect Lunada to rival her late-'90s output are sure to be disappointed. A closer comparison would be to Thalía's last album with Estefan (Thalía, 2002) or her 2005 album with songwriter/producer Estéfano, El Sexto Sentido. Like Lunada, both of these albums were highly produced sessions that yielded a few great songs amid overall mixed results.

    Not her best work

    I have always been a fan of the Mexican pop sensation. She has always found a way to maintain herself with the flow of music, often times changing her beat to fit in with the young generation. Her last production, Lunada, Is not her best work. With mediocre Caribbean sounds she delivers plain and simple lyrics with no depth. I think this album was simply an attempt to prove she still has it even though she is a mom. Great for party music. But she could have done way better, delivering more of a bass sounds with her songs.

    Bubble Gum POP!

    Thalia has returned to the bubble gum pop sound of the mid 90's, circa the 1995 album En Exstasis. Sure it was cute at the time, now it's come full circle on the new album Lunada. The album opens with strong reggaeton inspired pop song and the second track leaves you to believe the party won't end. Then it drifts into latin flavored lite rock and some lite tropical mixes. It's a nice mixture, however not as strong as Arrasando or her Thalia spanish version album or even her last album. Still it's cute and fun and has some nice tracks.
