Ricardo Arjona Blanco (2020)

Cuando pienso en Arjona pienso en LeBron James, claro son dos personas en campos bien diferentes, pero ocasionan pasiones parecidas. Muchos los quieren y otros los odian, pocos caen en el medio. Yo soy fan de Arjona, puedo decir que tuvo una temporada donde no me encantaban sus discos, pero debo admitir que Circo Soledad y Viaje fueron buenos discos para mí. Una cosa hay que decir, le guste a la gente o no, él sigue haciendo su música y no busca cambiar para competir con los géneros musicales del momento.

El proyecto yo pensé que era un disco doble que se iba a llamar Blanco y Negro. Pero en vez de sacar ambos discos juntos, el 2020 no da el disco Blanco y el segundo disco que se titulará Negro saldrá en el 2020.

Qué puedo decir del disco, tiene el toque normal de la música de Arjona, poesía a veces abstracta y bien a su estilo. Otro artista simplemente no le quedaría bien pero a Arjona le funciona y le queda bien. Pero dentro de lo que es conocido en la música de Arjona es un disco mas variado en los arreglos musicales y en las letras.

Yo en lo personal me disfrute el disco, lo encontré interesante tanto en sus letras y en los arreglos. Según lei, Arjona quiso grabar tocando en vivo en los estudios de Abbey Road, creo que eso le dio un “feeling” diferente al disco. Ahora a esperar al segundo disco a ver si es bueno como este.

When I think of Arjona I think of LeBron James, of course they are two people in very different fields, but they cause similar passions. Many love them and others hate them, few fall in the middle. I am a fan of Arjona, I can say that he had a season where I did not love his records, but I must admit that Circo Soledad and Viaje were good records for me. One thing must be said, people like him no, he continues to make his music and does not do duets with reggaeton to hit, he doesn’t need to.

I thought the project was a double album that was going to be called Black and White. But instead of releasing both albums together, 2020 does not give the Blanco album and the second album that will be titled Negro will come out in 2020.

What can I say about the album, it has the normal touch of Arjona’s music, sometimes abstract poetry and well in his style. Another artist just wouldn’t fit but Arjona works and it suits him. But within what is known in Arjona’s music it is a more varied album in musical arrangements and lyrics.

I personally enjoyed the album, I found it interesting both in its lyrics and in the arrangements. As I read, Arjona wanted to record playing live at the Abbey Road studios, I think that gave the album a different feeling. Now to wait for the second album to see if it is good like this.
