Nada Personal (Spanish for "Nothing Personal") is the second album recorded by Argentine rock band Soda Stereo, and released in 1985. It was recorded at Record Plant Studios in Los Angeles, California and remastered in 2007 at Sterling Sound Studios in New York.
"Nada Personal" provided the band with at least three successful singles, which became the breakout songs for the band all over Ibero-America. The album showed Soda Stereo in a new musical direction focused mainly on the British New Wave style. The most successful singles from the album were "Juegos De Seducción" (Games of Seduction/Seduction Games), "Nada Personal" (Nothing Personal) and "Cuando pase el temblor" (When the Earthquake Ends). Those songs enjoyed strong airplay during 1985 and 1986, primarily in Argentina, Mexico, Uruguay and Chile.
Such successful songs were performed live twice at the Viña del Mar International Song Festival held in Chile in February, 1987. Many people (including music journalists) consider these two shows very historic.
