CD Reviews

He Proves To The World He Can Be A Happy Man Again
Dio | Brooklyn, NY | 11/03/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"When Fernandito Villalona drop this album, his music career was lost in a strom. Not just his music, but his life. He had to deal with problems about his sexuality and drugs. The Dominican community was rejecting his music for these reasons. But he came back, with this album "Soy Un Hombre Feliz" to prove them wrong. In the song "Pueblo Mio" he sings about how much he regrets using drugs and that he wants his audience back. He asked for forgiveness and for another chance at glory. Slowly his audience came back, thanx to this track in "soy Un Hombre Feliz". This album made Fernandito Villalona lift himself back up, and back ontop of Dominican Republic the land he loves."
On the short list of great merengue albums
bilahn | USA | 02/11/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"With this comeback album, Fernando Villalona did that and more - creating an album that is truly one of the great merengue classics.

It isn't often that you find a merengue or album that sounds truly different, but this is. The arrangements, mostly by Manuel Tejada are among the best he had ever done. The ambience is restrained, folksy, and complex. The use of the background singers is exceptional and intriguing.

And of course, Villalona shows himself to be at the peak of his singing power.

This may not be the ideal merengue album to get up and dance to, but it is one you will listen to and absorb its great sophistication."
DEFINITELY RECOMMEND IT!

"ALL I COULD SAY ABOUT THIS CD THAT IT IS DEFINITELY ONE OF THE BEST. HE IS THE BEST SINGER IN THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC AND MOST DEFINITELY HE IS "EL MAYIMBE"."
