“*****/Five solid stars. – A defining moment for Latin Music Superstar Juanes

…Juanes has delivered one of the best Latin music albums of the year. … JUANES MTV Unplugged offers an innovative and unique sound where we can see the evolution of one of today’s most popular Latin music artists.”  –About.com: Latin Music


“Juanes, is among the top all-Spanish language musicians in the world. A stellar songwriter and guitarist, the 17-time Latin Grammy winner …[returned] with a vengeance this year with the release of his smoking “Juanes MTV Unplugged” album, which spent two weeks atop the Latin charts last June. The record also yielded a No. 1 single, “La Señal,” an inspirational ballad about love, family and friendship produced by Juan Luis Guerra that’s exactly the kind of uplifting tune the Latin academy loves to reward”. – Los Angeles Times


“Juanes proves to be at the prime of his career… the Colombian rocker offers a very intimate concert with the character and musical quality that defines him” – Associated Press


“Recorded in Miami Beach, Florida in front of a live audience that seems to know every word to every song on the set list, Tr3s Presents Juanes: MTV Unplugged is an uplifting celebration of the Colombian artist’s work that also offers a rare mix of spectacular and organic. The filled-with-hits set list and the brimming-with-love audience offer the spectacular bit, while the organic feel comes from Juanes’ warm and humble presentation, sounding like the most talented camp counselor ever heard with thousands of fans gathered round the campfire.” – Allmusic.com


“Unplugged disc reveals an inspired Juanes:  The success of Juanes, the Colombian rock star who is one of the most popular musicians in Latin music of the last decade, can obscure his integrity. His popularity has enabled him to open up Latin pop music to rock’s energy and authenticity — but he would not have been able to do that if he had not been the kind of songwriter who goes with his gut and means what he says. With ‘JUANES MTV Unplugged”…you see him up close and quiet, pouring himself into the songs. …Some tracks are lush with horns and strings, with a touch of classic Latin big band; others are stripped down. Some have a folkloric feel that harks back to Juanes’ roots. Todo En Mi Vida Eres Tu, one of three new songs, is an intimate, plaintive, jazzy ballad sung with just piano and cello, unlike anything Juanes had done. He’s growly, syncopated and free on Me Enamora, another hit. A standout moment is a duet with the rakish veteran Spanish singer-songwriter Joaquin Sabina on Sabina’s jaunty New Orleans style blues, Azul Sabina. They grin and play vocally, and Juanes finds an unexpected new lightness.…Juanes seems to have found his inspiration again.” – Miami Herald


“Juanes MTV Unplugged is an album that will surely be remembered by all, with extraordinary arrangements, a magic breath of fresh air and enchanting live sounds, Juanes exceeds all expectations on this new production.” – El Nuevo Herald
