Julieta Venegas - Otra Cosa


Julieta Venegas’ new disc, Otra Cosa was released today!


I’m listening now, and, it’s AWESOME!!!
Perhaps later I’ll give a more complete review…right now, I’m too busy working, and, ENJOYING THIS MUSIC!

Okay, I’m back to give you my thoughts on “Otra Cosa” after listening to the disc no less than 3 times in its entirety today.
On one hand, with the name “Otra Cosa” (meaning [an]Other Thing in English), one might expect something a little different, something surprising and new.
The truth is, however, that Julieta has not, in this latest disc, deviated from the path that has already made her a great success.
Of course, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, right?
“Otra Cosa” (other thing) is replete with the same well-crafted, catchy, smart tunes we’ve come to expect from Mexican pop-star and super-cutie, Julieta Venegas. It’s GREAT music with catchy, witty, fun, heartfelt, and sometimes insightful lyrics.
Existing fans will NOT be disappointed, no horrific departures from the know or unpleasant suprises. Just the same great stuff.
When those new to Julieta’s music hear this disc and experience what they’ve been missing, they will be wondering why they hadn’t already become fans long ago. For those who are new to Julieta’s great, latin-american, alt-pop tunes, I also highly recomment her prior albums, Si (my favorite, Latin Grammy winner in 2004), Limón y Sal (2 Grammy in 06/07), Bueninvento, and, of course, her live/acoustic disc with MTV Unplugged (2 Latin Grammies in 08), (including a not to be missed track that she recorded live with Brazilian pop-legend, Marisa Monte. Two such beautiful, talented singers on stage together = w0w!). Julieta has taken home no less than 5 Grammies and 3 MTV awards for her previous efforts, so, you know they are well worth a listen.
