No Es lo Mismo

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
Spain's Alejandro Sanz returns with his first studio album since 2000's El Alma al Aire. A lot has changed since then, for the singer, who's become a father, and the world around him. The thoughtful heartthrob has plenty to say on the No Es Lo Mismo -- It's Not the Same. Social issues and commitment are the themes here, with Sanz coming out in support of questioning authorities and their versions of the truth. "Read my lips -- I'm not for sale," he promises on the title track. Sanz casts the political in the personal, as on "Labana," the story of a Cuban boat person who struggles with the conflicting desires to flee his home and to be with his lover and family. Musically, the flamenco-meets-hip-hop title track ...

The thoughtful heartthrob has plenty to say on the No Es Lo Mismo -- It's Not the Same. Social issues and commitment are the themes here, with Sanz coming out in support of questioning authorities and their versions of the truth. "Read my lips -- I'm not for sale," he promises on the title track. Sanz casts the political in the personal, as on "Labana," the story of a Cuban boat person who struggles with the conflicting desires to flee his home and to be with his lover and family. Musically, the flamenco-meets-hip-hop title track indicates some of the surprises within. Produced by Sanz and Cuban Lulo Perez, there's a tropical streak to the songs -- boleros, sones -- all given an Iberian twist. With harder new sounds and some fierce new commentary, at least one thing's bound to be the same for this sophisticated crooner, and that's chart-topping international success with No Es Lo Mismo.
All Music Guide - Ivan Adaime
From the album title No Es lo Mismo means "it's not the same", Alejandro Sanz is showing what this effort is all about. At first, something that was already known: he is not the same as any other Latin heartthrob like Chayanne, Emmanuel, or even Ricky Martin. He composes and produces his own material and, although not a great singer, he's a superb guitar player. Second, this album is not the same as any other Latin one. Sanz affords various topics like social issues and commitment not only related to love, dancing, and having a good time probably the most common Latin stereotype. Third, this work his first studio album since 2000's El Alma al Aire is quite different from all the previous ones. For example in "Try to Save Your S'ong" he tries to rap, and gets some help from GQ in it. To his classic sound Latin ballads plus flamenco, he adds hip-hop, bolero, and son flavors. The problem is that not all the things melt together smoothly. Things are more familiar in songs like "He Sido Tan Feliz Contigo" or "Eso," in which he seems to be more comfortable. Although it's not a masterpiece, it's a pretty good album by Latin pop standards.

    Magnifico!

    In short, this album is nothing short of remarkable with its combination of musical genres which give it unsurpassed depth in expression of self. Alejandro Sanz has simply set a new standard for Latin music with this brilliant composition as a whole. Even music critics will have to marvel at his expertise and artestry when it comes to pioneering the Latin music movement in the U.S.

    He is just poetry made music, great flamenco-pop mix

    I am from spain and a truly admirer of Alejandro and believe when I say this album is more than great, I know what I'm talking about. The music is superb and the lyrics deep and with touching poetry, though of course you got to be spanish or latino with a good knowledge of spain to appreciate it, that makes a very small amount of people who can like this album here in the u.s. You are missing an excellent singer!! Everybody in spain just love him, even guys, this album is a must.

    Ale Rocks!

    Alejandro Sanz is one of the best spanish songwriter, poet and musician I've heard. This album takes some getting used to, however, in a little while you find yourself playing it over and over again. I am happy that he has included upbeat songs but has not forgotten about his amazing piano-full ballads. Listen to "Yo He Sido Tan Feliz Contigo," "Labana" and "Regalame la Silla Donde Te Espere" these are my favorites so far but the whole cd is just like all Ale's work, full of energy and love.

    HE DOES IT ONCE AGAIN...I LOVE YOU ALEJANDRO SANZ!

    IT'S NO SURPRISE THIS ALBUM IS GONNA SNAG A FEW GRAMMYS AS HIS ALBUMS USUALLY DO. I AM SO GLAD HE HAS BEEN INSPIRED TO WRITE AND SHARE HIS MUSIC WITH THE WORLD. I ALWAYS LOOK FORWARD TO HIS MUSIC, EVERY SONG IS FILLED WITH SOMETHING SPECIAL AND DIFFERENT THAN THE REST.
