La Nueva Reina de Salsa
Kurt Harding | Boerne TX | 05/13/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Over the years, there seems to be a new Latin Craze about once per decade. Frenesi contains some great songs mostly from crazes of years gone by. If you speak Spanish, you already know that most of the songs on the album are incredibly sexy and sensual. (If you don't, then you can read the English translations in the liner notes.) I know the songs from my father's albums and knew that this was going to be a great album as soon as it was issued.Ronstadt's voice is perfectly suited to the delivery of these torrid Latin classics.She and Tish Hinojosa rate at the top of my list of female American performers who sing in Spanish. Linda is at top form throughout the album and the quality of the music is such that I wonder why she doesn't abandon other genres and stick to salsa exclusively. From the sexy title cut to the poignant Verdad Amarga, Ronstadt shows herself capable of expressing the full gamut of human emotion in song.My favorites are the aforementioned two songs as well as the plaintive Despojos, Entre Abismos, and the classic Perfidia. Buy this album and you'll see why Ronstadt so richly deserves to be called the New Queen of Salsa."
Buy This Record!

"You've found it! Buy this record! Linda Ronstadt and the Ray Santos orchestra perform Latin swing music! The arrangements are crystal clear, snappy and crisp. Her voice, her Spanish phrasing, is flawless. The song selection, Frenesi, Perfidia, is inspired; not a mediocre number in the bunch! Do you like to dance? You can't sit still for this music. This is not the canciones mariachi music (fine in its own right, I'm sure). For some reason, people don't know about this record. I had them play it in a CD store recently - the employees didn't want me to buy it and take it away! You'll thank me for this one!"
Love this c.d. from start to finish !...

"Such timeless artists like Celia Cruz,Tito Puente, Cachao, Perez Prado, and last but not least Eydie Gorme & Trio Los Panchos, come to mind whenever I listen to this Ronstadt collection of Latin-swing classic/romantic/ballad/dance tracks.Linda provides an album with so much warmth,energy, and mucical/vocal vitality that makes me wish she would release another project in Spanish (possibly a different style such as merengue, cumbia, or just more salsa and mambo tunes). While almost any American artist can sing in a language other than English phonetically, Ronstadt captures the pronunciations, accent, dialect, intonations flawlessly and naturally ! She rolls with the r's and rolls with the rhythm.Aside from her wonderful Spanish, this album never misses a beat and is not filled with any kind of questionable material. It is a Latin/jazz and nostalgic tour deforce by one of America's famous adult contemporary artists..."
