Ni Es Lo Mismo Ni Es Igual

Ni Es Lo Mismo Ni Es Igual

by Juan Luis Guerra y 440


5 New & Used Starting at $1.99


This three-time Grammy-winning performance by the daddy of bachata and modern merengue is a must-listen for not only the tropical music fans of the world, but any music lover with a pulse. Juan Luis Guerra, often credited with bringing his nation's music to a global audience, has created yet another landmark album for lovers of Dominican music to relish. Be it with humorous and rollicking merengues like "Mi PC," the steamy and simmering salsa "Quisiera," or the irresistibly singable "El Niagra en Bicicleta" (which won Best Tropical Song at the Latin Grammys in 2000), Guerra offers delightful surprise in song after song. His ballads "Testimonio" or "Amapola" prove as tender and poignantly written as always. Grammy winner of Best Merengue Performance, this album sets new standards of excellence for both writing and ensemble performance for generations of Merengueros to come. Sonically, Ni Es Lo Mismo Ni Es Igual proves a lush and brilliant success. Having also won Best Engineered Album from the Latin Grammys in 2000 is testament to this rich, crystal-clear studio masterpiece. Not only a brilliant songwriter but also a master arranger, Guerra is responsible for every fiery horn line and rousing coro. For both the dedicated merengue patriot and those looking for their musical maiden voyage to the Republica Dominicana, Ni Es Lo Mismo Ni Es Igual is a must-own.

Once again Juan Luis Guerra has raised his own standards by coming out with this new album. His creativity, which is never compromised by the consistency of musical quality, could only be understood when one listens to his previews albums. When it comes to merengue or Dominican music in general, he is definately up there with the legends.

Experience the world of Guerra and his musica and you'll crave more. Makes you want to dance, cry, party and fall in love. I'm on my third CD now and don't speak or understand much Spanish, but what I do comprendo is Juann Luis Guerra's voice and his magical ability to transcend a language barrier and deliver music filled with emotions. Like a roller coaster ride for the ears and spirit. Try his CD Arieto with 440.
