is the awaited follow-up to the hugely successful Un Día Normal
, the multi-Latin Grammy-winning and best-selling Latin album of 2003, which made Juanes
a star. Although he has a different background than many Latin stars, now it's hard to tell the difference between him and the rest. His music and words sound more conventional than ever. Like Un Día Normal
's lyrics, Mi Sangre
's are hopeful and romantic. There are many love songs ("Amame," "Para Tu Amor," "Nada Valgo sin Tu Amor") and a couple of naïve looks over reality ("Qué Pasa?" and "Sueños"). Musically, this album is rawer than its predecessor. Somehow it's also less catchy. It was also produced by Gustavo Santaolalla
. It's not a bad album by Latin pop standards.
