The review of the album by Billboard Magazine:[7]

Singer/songwriter Kany García's confessional rock debut is a welcome major-label departure from Latin pop divadom. Her husky tone seems built for a sideways glance at breakups, sex, aging and human indifference, but it's the album's uptempo tracks that really leave an impression. García's sudden bursts of anger are a dose of good sassy fun, especially on the country-tinged "Amigo en el Baño", a darkly funny tune about a vibrator, and the brisk rocker "Mujer de Tacones", in which she declares she's "tired of looking at myself in the mirror . . . because in my early 20s, you've made me feel so wrinkled." García shows she's got some lyrical moxie here, and with a few more memorable arrangements to match, her incisive ballads could have even wider appeal. Here's hoping her eloquence strikes a chord."

A review from El Nuevo Herald:[8]

Kany Garcia has given the public a record 100% of pop ballads, the spark that imposes its staff, with a sexy accent, while both mature. "Cualquier Día" is a disk to give to devote to hear again and again and be identified."
