Product Description


Ricardo Arjona could have gone the standard route with Quién Dijo Ayer, and it still would have been a solid hits collection. But the Guatemalan singer and songwriter has rarely been about obvious pop choices. Quién Dijo Ayer is no different. Arjona has made the double-disc collection a sweet look back that still keeps firm footing in the present and in the future. To be sure, he includes the original versions of some of his biggest hits ("Mujeres," "Senora de Las Cuatro Decadas"). But Arjona recasts his trademark tunes with new arrangements, newly recorded vocals and guest stars, resulting in an exciting new project. "Te Conozco" finds a new sense of poignancy and "Historia de Taxi" is reborn as a shimmering salsa collaboration with Marc Anthony. Arjona also enlists Marta Sanchez, Eros Ramazzotti, and Sandro for fresh spins on old friends. The disc includes a trio of new tunes, including the terrific "Quién," that fit perfectly alongside the hits. Arjona's own voice, always appealingly emotive, adds extra layers of depth to every thoughtful lyric. --Joey Guerra

Product Description

'Quen Dijo Ayer' (Who said yesterday)is not a compilation even though it complies, not a hits ablum even though it includes the most important songs in his career. This album is not what it appears to be but something more then what it is believed to be. This piece of contemporary music that will remain in time by the obligation that imposes the affluent work done, places it's foundations in three new songs 'Espantapajaros','Quin' and 'Quiero'. All other tracks are songs that marked Arjona's career during the years, the songs that made history and will now be heard as new tracks with familiar lyrics but with new sounds. Features Marc Anthony, Marta Sanchez, Panteon Rococo and Eros Ramazzotti.

Well, I also have all his cd's! This one is superb, here you get two discs. Disc 1, are his greatest hits remixed or in duets plus three new songs. Disc 2, are the original versions minus the three new sonsgs. Great disc, specially the duet with Sandro, which brings sweet memories. Strongly recommended!

1.0 out of 5 stars Pan con lo mismo Aug. 21 2007
By Carlos Pontifes Aguilar - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Tengo todos los discos de incluyendo el "lados b" que solo tiene una cancion inedita todas las demas estan incluidas en los discos, el de SOLO que es algo muy parecido al "nuevo" material, solo unas pocas canciones nuevas y el resto canciones viejas con nuevos arreglos o a duo.

Por favor, parece que a Arjona se le muere la inspiracion poco a poco, pero la culpa la tienen los fans por comprar todo lo que salga a la venta.

No gasten su dinero en vano

3.0 out of 5 stars ...mas de lo mismo?... Sept. 10 2007
By Juan Aguirre - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
OK... tengo TODOS los discos de mi compatriota, y me parece un fenomenal canta-autor. Sin embargo, mano... mi estimado Arjona, te lo tengo que decir directo: ya basta de darnos más de lo mismo... existe un rasgo muy similar entre tus discos Vivo, lados B, Solo y Quién dijo ayer.... versiones re-masticadas, sazonadas con diferentes especies, pero que en el fondo son exactamente lo mismo, el primer disco: excelente, el segundo bien....creo, el tercero: ok...tal vez es el último reciclaje, pero un cuarto!

Te doy tres estrellas, dado que incluís tres canciones nuevas (Quien, Quiero y Espantapájaros), y porque la nueva versión de A Ti (con Eros Ramazzoti) está soberbia... lo demás, puro "filler".

Espero que para la próxima hagás tu tarea (componiendo más...sé que el talento lo tenés, no hay duda).

3.0 out of 5 stars Arjona fell into the market's cliché Sept. 4 2007
By Amy González - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This CD is ok, but is not the greatest. I am a huge fan of Arjona, but this is certainly not his best. I did not feel the passion in this product; it seems like if he did it because he had to, in order to keep up with the market trends of launching a hits CD.

The song I liked most was Historia de Taxi, but it is evident he did not recorded it together with Marc Anthony; it sounds very studio arrangement. And Marc did not excel with his trademark during the song. And I don't even want to mention poor Sandro: he sounds tired, old and funny; he was one of the best artist in America, but now he is sick and should not be exposing himself to the critics.

Judge yourself. I hope the rest of Arjona's audience likes it. I'm still a fan, though.
