RedReviewStarPreS-Gr 2—Mister G's latest bilingual album is an incredible treat for the ears. The 11 songs compiled here all address the same theme: the need to protect this amazing planet on which we live. From the first note of "Mundo Verde/Green World," fast-paced Latin beats will have listeners moving and grooving. The topics of recycling, the wonders of nature, el coqui, bees, and fish are all featured, as well as a celebration of many different animals in "Patas en el Aire/Paws in the Air." Mister G and his guests, including Mari Nobre and Estrella Acosta, seamlessly move back and forth between Spanish and English both during the interludes between songs and in the lyrics themselves, making each song a delight for native listeners of either language. Each song is backed by talented musicians from around the world, giving the album a real world-music feel. Eventually, the dance party ends as things slow down and the celebration concludes with the lush "Las Estrellas/The Stars."
VERDICT This is a must have for every collection.
