Although she's been doing Latin pop since Jennifer Lopez was in junior high, Gloria Estefan has progressed little, as evidenced from the derivative dance and disco retreads on Greatest Hits Vol. II. Apart from a few true gems like "Reach" and "Heaven's What I Feel," the album is a boring mix of covers ("Turn the Beat Around" and "Everlasting Love") and original tracks that blend into one another--all Cuban rhythm and banal lost-love lyrics. Gloria has a one-of-a-kind voice and great style--she's a surefire talent--and her music is still fabulous in her native language (check out Mi Tierra or Abriendo Puertas). But if you're looking for a real sampler of her greatest hits, the first volume, released in 1992, is still the way to go. --Courtney Kemp

GLORIA'S 90'S MATURE ERA AND DANCE! DANCE! DANCE!
S. Quinto | Guatemala, Guatemala | 04/15/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Gloria's second Greatest Hits it's a smooth move to this Cuban chanteuse, that approach the 90's in a mature secure way. The record starts with "Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me" tracks, "Turn The Beat Around" it's a club anthem, a mayhem of beats, a true dance gem, usually remakes don;t work but this one did. "Everlasting Love" This classic uplifting track is just pure pop delight. "Reach" is a simple pop-folk tune, a true anthem to raise the spirit. "I'm Not Giving You Up", heartbreaking, with dramatic club house beats..the line where Gloria sings "we'll find a way to be together, however long takes wherever..." wow, just amazing. "You'll Bi Mine" party Gloria!, just happy song! latino rhythms, "Heaven's What I Feel" love club song, how do you supposed to not dance to this, "Oye" strong funky latin club beats, one of Gloria's best!, "Music Of My Heart" joined by Nsync, pretty adult contemporary songs, a-la-Dion, "Out Of Nowhere" new latin-beats of miami club, speedy and flaky, "I Got No Love" mature and heartfelt, "Y Tu Conga" new remake of Conga and some extra samples of Dr Beat. "If We Were Lovers" and english version of "Con Los Anios Que Me Quedan", very dramatic. Overall Greatest Hits Vol. II shows Gloria's Great Repertuar of the 90's and her conviction of making latin-club music for the mainstream audience, a great artist."
