Simplemente el mejor MTV Unpplugged
Orlando Abreu | 06/18/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Este no es cualquier acustico. La multi-talentosa Julieta Venegas aprovechó esta oportunidad para crear una propuesta musical nueva, re-inventando sus canciones, llenándolas de nuevos sonidos a través de excelentes y novedosos arreglos. Ademas, selecionó muy bien sus invitados, basandose en su calidad artistica y no en el nivel de fama de estos. Fue un verdadero "dream team". Para comenzar, tiene entre sus musicos a la tambien talentosisima y multi-instrumentista Natalia Lafourcade. En "eres para mi" invito a la hip-hoper espanola La Mala Rodriguez, (hermosa y sexy por demas!)haciendo gala de su destreza y fuerza en el escenario. Otra agradable sorpresa fue Juan Son. Les confieso que no sabia quien era, pero que voz mas impresionante! Ademas, le tocó cantar una de las mejores canciones de Julieta - "de mis pasos" de su primer disco -. Como si fuera poco, tuvo de invitada a Marisa Monte, para muchos la mejor cantante de su generacion de la musica brasileira. Con su habitual seguridad y elegancia la "tribalsta" se lució como siempre con su increible voz y modo de interpretar. Luego subio a la tarima su antiguo productor, el Rey Midas del Rock en español y ganador de dos Oscares, Gustavo Santaolalla,.Para cerrar con broche de oro, la acompañó en la co-dirección y co-producción Jaques Morelenbaum; ¿quieren una referencia? este violonchelista es el director musical de Caetano Veloso. En síntesis, Una produccion impecable, que la disfruten..."
Is it possible for her to get any better?

"Ever since her excellent first U.S. release, "Aquí," Julieta Venegas has done nothing but improve in every way. With each release, her song writing, arrangements, and delivery have matured, to the point where one wonders if it possible for her to get any better. With her most recent previous release, "Limon y Sal," Venegas proved that popular music (in any language) can actually be interesting as well as entertaining. When I first heard "Limon y Sal," I assume that she had reached a peak. Now "MTV Unplugged" brings together her best music in a superb live performance that surpasses everything she had previously produced. Her performance throughout is tight and disciplined with charm to spare. The assembled musicians are equally tight, surpassing the studio musicians of past CD releases. While the DVD contains a few more songs than the CD version of "MTV Unplugged," it doesn't hurt to have an audio version of this great concert for the car. And, while you're at it, get a copy of another great Julieta Venegas CD, "Sí." Thank you, Julieta, for making music that holds up!"
Pop music for the world!

"As an Anglo with only a smattering of Spanish, I was stunned to see Julieta Venegas performing El Presente while channel hopping. As I did further investigation, I found out just how huge Julieta is in the spanish speaking world. I would rank her right up there with Sheryl Crow, Jewel, Dolores O'Riordan and other English-speaking singer songwriters.

Julieta's clear pronunciation helps me to understand something of her lyrics, but it is her music and her voice that grabbed me! She combines a little rock, rap, mariachi, accordian, etc., etc. to create a unique blend. Her studio albums are terrific, but this live performance takes the cake. Her duets with other artists are stunning.

You won't go wrong with this one!"
Julieta Venegas [MTV Unplugged] is a Masterpiece.

"I had not heard much about Julieta Venegas until recently, when I saw a video of her MTV Unplugged (El Presente) performance. Boy, was I pleasantly surprised. I hardly EVER buy Latin music, much less a Latin performance on DVD. Even if you do not understand the language, Julieta's music trancends all boundaries. It is both a joy to listen to and watch the music video. I have purchased and would highly recommend the CD/DVD. Julieta Venegas' music is a breath of fresh air, contagious, and the harmonies are pitch perfect. Julieta Venegas is a talented lady indeed!"
