Ever since he started the legendary Mexican pop group Los Bukis in the '70s, singer/songwriter Marco Antonio Solis has been at the forefront of the Mexican music scene. His countless successful solo albums have made him a musical hearthrob on the order of Julio Iglesias, a romantic balladeer with passion (and songwriting skills) to burn. To his credit, Solis never takes it too far over the top, preferring to let his gorgeous voice lilt gently over the melody, expressing emotion without throwing it in your face. In this respect, one might compare him to a 21st century Freddy Fender, lending his lovely tones to heart-rending Mexican-tinged pop for maximum effect on TU AMOR O TU DESPRECIO.
