Mí Tierra

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jose F. Promis
Gloria Estefan's first U.S. Spanish-language album, Mi Tierra is one of her most satisfying, and a step above her English-language pop albums. Her voice is extremely well suited for the material, and the result is a breezy, sunny album with moments of melancholy and longing -- in short, one of her most consistent albums to date. Additionally, some of the best-known and most well-respected Latin musicians were employed to further embellish the album. There are plenty of happy upbeat songs on this set, including "Montuno," the anthemic "Mi Tierra," "¡Sí Señor!...," "No Hay Mal Que por Bien No Venga," and "Hablemos el Mismo Idioma," which are all perfect for a summer ...

All Music Guide - Jose F. Promis
Gloria Estefan's first U.S. Spanish-language album, Mi Tierra is one of her most satisfying, and a step above her English-language pop albums. Her voice is extremely well suited for the material, and the result is a breezy, sunny album with moments of melancholy and longing -- in short, one of her most consistent albums to date. Additionally, some of the best-known and most well-respected Latin musicians were employed to further embellish the album. There are plenty of happy upbeat songs on this set, including "Montuno," the anthemic "Mi Tierra," "¡Sí Señor!...," "No Hay Mal Que por Bien No Venga," and "Hablemos el Mismo Idioma," which are all perfect for a summer cocktail pool party. The ballads are among her most compelling, among these "Con los Anos Que Me Quedan," with beautiful lyrics and guitars augmenting the lovely melodies. That song, incidentally, later resurfaced as the English-language "If We Were Lovers," which can be found on her Greatest Hits, Vol. 2 collection. Other ballad highlights include the longing "Mi Buen Amor" and "Volveras." The lyrics, which are included in their English translations, resonate much more in Spanish. This set easily ranks as one of Estefan's best albums, albeit least commercial. True fans of the artist will love this set, which showcases her as much more of an organic talent than her pop songs demonstrate. On "Hablemos el Mismo Idioma" she suggests, "Brother, give me your hand, let's speak the same language," and that language is music. An album such as this deserves to be listened to and appreciated by everyone, Spanish-speaking or not. A true pleasure.

    Love this album!

    I was never a Gloria Estefan fan until this album was released. Mind you, I was still very young but it was one of the CDs that you couldn't help but love. My grandfather always listened to Spanish music but I never really cared for anyone aside from Celia Cruz. Upon listening to this CD, on a long car trip with him; it really inspired me...The lyrics are beautiful and the rhythms are capitivating...after that I was never the same and now I love a lot of different types of Spanish music today because of it.

    la Reina De La Musica Carribena!!!

    Gloria Estefan has been in the music business for a long time and translates her lyrics in spanish and english. She is one of the best female Carribena singer that not only sings, but she also sings from the heart into your heart of the salsera music. It has pop and latin music of the time. ALl of her music come from her latin roots of Cuba. That's where all the latin music usually comes from CUba and Puerto Rico. Her hot sensational music fo trumpets and bangos and other instruments are the roots of latin rhythm. SHe has dance moves that make you want to go up and dance.

    Songs for your heart

    Gloria Estefan can leap tall buildings in a single bound in english, but she soars with the eagles in spanish, she can sing a party song with the best of them . . . but in ''Mi Tierra'' she is at her best, singing songs from her heart, to your heart. Songs of second chances at love, separation from homeland and loved ones, whether with hope of reconciliation or not, her ''beat'' ('son' -rhymes with english 'zone'), her rythm (montuno), a song for hispanic unity, and a tribute to her musical heritage continuing. As usual the cover booklet gives the complete lyrics, and the booklet for Mi Tierra also gives each song translated into english so you can tell by more than just the sound what she is singing about (if you don't have any spanish) and without which this review would have been much less informative.
