JUANES’ “Loco De Amor” Was Recently Chosen As One Of

The Ten Best Albums of 2014 (so far)” By PEOPLE Magazine, Landing at #4 In The Tally of the Year’s Best Music Releases 


In An Earlier Review, PEOPLE Also Declared That “LOCO DE AMOR”

“Is one of the best records out now in any tongue.

With [Steve] Lillywhite punching up the snap and crackle, Juanes has never sounded better”

…While The New York Times Likewise Heralds The Album As

 “a euphoric, melodic romp across the hemisphere… A Joyful, Fun Musician’s Record From A Really Good Guitarist”

“FOUR STARS… an alternative Latin rocker with a big hooky chorus worthy of Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band …urgent, affirmative, nearly transcendent rock & roll …Loco de Amor offers longtime fans plenty of Juanes’ signature sound to satisfy, That said, its provocative blur of genres, styles, and traditions delivers some bracing new sounds that should attract a wider range of listeners.” – All Music



“Juanes strikes new territory on new album…Under the radio-friendly hooks and major chord progressions, there is Juanes’ powerful voice reaching new corners. And, a careful listen to popular rock producer Steve Lillywhite’s mix reveals surprising layers. Keyboard flourishes familiar to Latin dance floors, such as on the opening track “Mil Pedazos” or the single “La Luz,” manage to sound fresh when combined with the album’s driving percussion and Juanes’ passionate vocals …likely to pull in listeners just discovering one of Latin America’s biggest stars.” – Associated Press


Download of the Week: Juanes makes acoustic-driven pop-rock that’s immediately accessible even if you don’t know Spanish at all… measurably sharper than most pop right now.” – New York Post


“ Juanes has made it no secret that his newest album, “Loco de Amor” is completely different from anything he’s done in the past. The album’s new vibe blends Juanes’ own style with a newer sound that’s pop, rock and a little retro. …the music grabs and moves you. The single La Luz,’ for example, marries Colombian cumbia with electronic dance music for a club-friendly composition that’s been getting major attention, which is much deserved. However, don’t think that his signature sound is at all lost…It’s satisfying to hear the super star performing music such as ‘La Verdad,’ which really drives a pop/rock sentimentality in a song about searching for truth in a relationship” – KPCC (NPR)


“Juanes recently dropped his latest album Loco de Amor along with this beautiful music video for his song Mil Pedazos! The Colombian singer showcases his AH-Mazing guitar skillz along with his incredible voice for this song! …you’ll probably find yourself falling in love with him!” – Perez Hilton
