One of the most polished of contemporary Latin singers, Marc Anthony keeps a solid grip on his roots underneath a sophisticated pop veneer. Melding slick ballads, hard rocking Salsa, Bachata, and R&B, heartthrob Anthony sings impassionately over some great arrangements from co-producer Angel "Cucho" Pena and Humberto Ramirez, among others. Funky "slap" bass, strings, and synthesizers add a chart-orientated flavor to classic Salsa orchestrations, but Anthony's powerful and romantic voice and his choice of material ensure that Contra la Corriente does not sink into a "smooth groove" quagmire. If Salsa is to have world class, crossover success, then Marc Anthony is the most accessible candidate. --Derek Rath

I really think he was better before all the hype. I recommend this, his second record.
If you like salsa this is a great CD to have

"I like all the songs in this CD. The music is amazing. You will feel like dancing while listening. Two of the songs are not salsa, but there are good too. You can listen to the whole CD without skipping any songs. This is a 'must have' if you like salsa. It does not matter if you speak Spanish or not."

"I believe I own every album Marc Anthony has released and this is my absolute favorite. I love every selection and can understand why he is called "The Salsa King." When he sings a ballad, you feel the emotion and your heart is touched. But when he sings salsa, your feet will itch to dance! All of these cuts are in Spanish, but you'll enjoy this collection whether you speak the language or not."
