Latin crooner-dreamboat Luis Miguel reached a creative impasse on his last studio album, 1999's Amarte Es un Placer, which simply recycled the same swooning sounds and themes of his previous collections. Vivo, Miguel's latest live recording, includes five songs from that mediocre album, but Miguel manages to inject them with a surprising vitality. He shines on the medleys, which feature 17 songs from Miguel's three albums of smoldering love songs. Even the most canned studio recordings ("Como Es Posible a Mi Lado," "Quiero") come alive onstage, thanks to Miguel's wonderfully rich and expressive voice. Vivo also includes two previously unavailable tracks, "Y" and "La Bikina." Miguel brings a passionate energy to both mariachi classics. The album's biggest testament to "Mickey's" talent, however, is his fans, who scream, sing, and swoon from beginning to end. --Joey Guerra

"Luis Miguel is and will always be my favorite of the Latino "hearthrobs". Before Ricky, Enrique, Marc Anthony and the rest Luis Miguel has always been there with his legion of fans, just ask Daisy Fuentes. No longer a boyish stud who could sing he has grown to be a man of tremendous talent who just happens to be handsome, suave and debonair. This is not a "chicks CD" but a great CD for both sexes to enjoy, ideally together. This is even better than 1995's "El Concierto". This "Vivo" CD captures the essence of LM, the voice, the music, the stellar production qualities, the adoring fans, mariachi and orchestra, it's love music with or without a lover. What I've noticed is that LM's voice has matured, he's hiting the peak of a great career. I listened to "Aries" and "Segundo Romance" to compare and his voice has just got better, fuller, richer, and he has more inflection and deeper tonal qualities. He's just getting better and better. Live albums are not my favorites but this CD works as it captures the fans adulation. When he asks " me acompanian"? and the audience joins in it is just beautiful, the crowd responds in harmony, they all sing in unison after shrieking in delight. I've always admired the Mexican crowds ability to sing along with the performer, a mutual love affair between performer and audience, that moment when the performance is synergistic. I can't say enough good things about this CD except to say that love is in the heart and LM's soul unleashes the joy within. This is the music of memories(The Romances) and love's yet to be discovered. Listen to the classic "Sabor a Mi" and if you're not in the mood after listening to this than check your hearbeat. LM swings suavely with his rendition of "Besame Mucho", I can just picture the women going faint in the audience. LM is a class act and this CD reflects his talent. His live performances are legendary. I can kick myself for not seeing him when he was here for numerous sold out shows. I guess next time he comes will be the right time. Until then I'll just listen to this CD and I think I'll even pick up the video performance!"
