After 10 years, still his best album
bilahn | Minneapolis | 08/13/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Along with Ya No Soy El Nino Aquel and De Otra Manera, Cara de Nino is one of Jerry Rivera's best albums and it has stood the test of time, ranking among the best salsa CDs of the 90s.

Solo Tu starts out very unconventionally, with dark mysterious strings, but soon the darkness is piereced by hot percussion, and then Jerry's angelic voice singing the beautiful melody. This song qualifies as a true salsa classic.

Most of the other songs are very good as well. Wonderful innovative arrangments by the best in the business make this album shine above the others. The sound and feel of this album is unique and coherent through its entirety.

Jerry's more recent albums, consisting of bland pop, and a rather unexciting remake of Frankie Ruiz songs, pale greatly by comparison."
Jerry's best work ever!

"Being a native of Puerto Rico, and having been raised in the city of New York, you grow up hearing many variations and different flavors of what we hispanics call "Salsa". This collection of songs by Jerry Rivera makes you want to listen to the music all the way through. You just can't turn it off. I think the biggest compliment an artist can receive regarding his music is when more than one generation really likes his music. I have a 16 year old teenager who loves this CD. Although this CD is almost 7 years old, it gets my highest recommendation. El savor es en la musica, y la musica es vida."
Still a strong salsa album.

"This is album is one of his best from the beginning years of his career as a salsa artist. Jerry Rivera who is renowned for is unique style called salsa romantica takes his talent to the limit and showcases a timeless album that can be easily deemed by any salsa connoisseur as one of the classic salsa albums produced in the 90s. I have gone several years without listening to this album and having listened to it again recently I was inspired to write this review. This salsa is upbeat, rhythmic, danceable and truly representative of Jerry Rivera. It really sounds great especially since Jerry has changed genres since 2001 and is now producing ballads primarily. If you want to stroll down memory lane or simply listen to authentic salsa of this genre, strongly consider purchasing this album. I assure you will enjoy every inch of it!"
