Sexy heartthrob Enrique Iglesias returns with a slickly produced collection of rhythmic ballads ("Esperanza," "Cosas del Amor") and soft rocking sing-along tunes ("Desnudo," "Contigo"). Iglesias, who wrote six songs here, sounds more confident and in control than ever in this work produced by Rafael Perez-Botija. Ultimately, though, most of this stuff sounds like lightweight pop pap wrapped in lush arrangements, occasionally overly dramatic and consistently overproduced. The tunes go down nicely, but they're instantly forgotten once they're over. The only tunes into which Iglesias injects some notable fire are "Para de Jugar" and the R&B/funk-flavored "Dicen por Ahi." It hardly matters, however, to his main audience--mostly adoring female fans. Iglesias's matinee-idol looks and this sweet ear candy are all they need. --Ramiro Burr

ENRIQUE'S THIRD / ALL GOOD SONGS !!!

(5 out of 5 stars)
"This cd has all good songs with good lyrics and soulful music. There's really not a bad song here just a cd full of hits, so i can't really pick a favorite. Probably the most monotonous song would be #8 Para de Jugar because it only has two small pharagraphs and the chourus is just repeated over and over again. The singles chosen out of this cd really stand out from the rest, but the title theme, #2 Cosas del Amor, is also a good song. He really starts to prove what he can do with his voice, especially in #6 Alguien Como Tu, where he holds a note out for a while. This is probably his cd where he shows that he's maturing in his lyrics and music. The success from this great cd prepares him for his crossover to the English market."
