Santo Pecado

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jason Birchmeier
Following one of his most daring albums to date, Galería Caribe 2000, Ricardo Arjona returns to the symphonic pop
ock style of his 1990s efforts on Santo Pecado. While it's not one of his masterworks, Santo Pecado is nonetheless a well-crafted album with at least a half-dozen great songs. Those fans who were disappointed with Arjona's rather surprising turn toward tropical music on Galería Caribe should find this album more familiar in style. Others might find it overly familiar. In many ways, it's similar in style to Sin Daños a Terceros 1998 or any of Arjona's mid-'90s efforts, albeit with a more ...

Following one of his most daring albums to date, Galería Caribe 2000, Ricardo Arjona returns to the symphonic pop
ock style of his 1990s efforts on Santo Pecado. While it's not one of his masterworks, Santo Pecado is nonetheless a well-crafted album with at least a half-dozen great songs. Those fans who were disappointed with Arjona's rather surprising turn toward tropical music on Galería Caribe should find this album more familiar in style. Others might find it overly familiar. In many ways, it's similar in style to Sin Daños a Terceros 1998 or any of Arjona's mid-'90s efforts, albeit with a more refined range of pop
ock styles. No doubt to the chagrin of hard rock fans i.e., those fans who prefer "Mujeres" to "Jésus Verbo No Substantivo", Santo Pecado has a number of songs in a symphonic style similar to "Buenas Noches Don David" from Sin Daños a Terceros and they're sequenced intermittently. These symphonic songs are fine in and of themselves, showcasing Arjona's versatility as a singer/songwriter. Most impressive is "La Nena Bitácora de un Secuestro," an eight-minute symphonic epic with dramatic bursts of electric guitar and crashing drums. The problem is that Arjona's orchestral flights of fancy too often disrupt the momentum of the album. Take for example "Quesos, Cosas, Casas," a pleasant enough song that is unfortunately sequenced in the midst of the album-opening rock highlights "El Problema," "Dame," and "Minutos" and just begs to be skipped over. While the abrupt shifts in momentum can be frustrating, a few of the slower songs are quite extraordinary, in particular "Mujer de Lujo," "Me Dejaste," and "Amarte a Ti," the latter of which is not to be overlooked at the end of the album. Needless to say, Arjona's songwriting is masterful. Even if the musical style of a particular song isn't to one's liking, the lyrics are always a wonder to behold.

    The Master

    If you think you haven't found one good Latin artist, meet el Sr. Ricardo Arjona! From the beginning of his career, he has made it his business to write all the words and music for his albums, as well as providing a socially conscious message. He's a master of his craft and brings more to his music than just a hit, (which he does repeatedly). Each of his songs gives you a perfect picture of what's on his mind. Whether it's social issues, love, anger, sadness, politics, his children, religion, or the occassional whimsy, it is all written down with purpose and makes his words all the more poignant. He is by far the greatest, current Latin artist. He's a man apart from all other artists because his music actually means something to him besides a big check. You can see that in the words he writes, not those provided to him by a record label. His music is very touching, thought provoking, and amazing! No other artist has the forward thinking, music style, talent, or bohemian attitude all wrapped up so well. Each album comes out better than the last, and with time he's only gotten better! He is the MASTER!!
