Marc Anthony comes on like a suave, less jumpy alternative to Ricky Martin on this mostly English-language album. Having already introduced itself to the pop mainstream with the salsa-tinged single "I Need to Know," Marc Anthony offers several other obvious crossover hits, ranging from the Rodney Jerkins-produced Latin-funk fusion of "She's Been Good to Me" to the lovelorn midtempo ballad "When I Dream at Night." However, Anthony's agreeably keening voice is too often applied to the sort of colorless adult-contemporary material typical of Michael Bolton and Mariah Carey mainstay Walter Afansieff, who produces or coproduces three tracks here. The result is often more interesting in sociological terms--Anthony fans who, like the star, were born to Latino parents in America are as sure to eat this disc up as his new Caucasian admirers--than in musical ones. Ain't that America? --Rickey Wright

"This album was long over due for Marc Anthony, who until now has resisted the lure of the american pop scene. His music has always been authentic and steadfastly traditional, garnering respect from salsa aficionados. The release of this first English-speaking album is huge to say the least. He is not just another crossover by any means. The only thing he shares with fellow Latin recording artist Ricky Martin and Jennifer Lopez is a similar cultural heritage. Anthony is a passionate singer and it shows in his music, both english and spanish. This album is proof of that. He melded his urban American upbringing with his Puerto Rican roots to bring us a unique Latin sensibility. So if you like music that can make you move your feet, and touch your heart in a unique passionate way, here it is. Hold on to your seat for a ride you won't soon forget. A must have CD. To make your experience even better I recomend his first two albums, Otra Nota and Todo a Su Tiempo, which went platinum."
Wonderful - a true, pure delight!

"I thought this CD by Marc Anthony is good. The only bad part about this CD is that he didn't add the song "I Want to Spend My Lifetime Loving You" that he sang for the movie, 'The Mask of Zorro'. I was disappointed about that because I really liked that song and usually when artists sing songs for movies, they put those songs on their albums, too. But above all that, this CD is awesome. I especially like the songs "I Need To Know" and "You Sang to Me". Marc Anthony has a good, strong talented voice and his music is catchy with a good beat and danceable music. This music makes you wanna get up and dance. It can also be very relaxing music. So if you like Latin music (for example: Ricky Martin, Enrique Iglesias, Jennifer Lopez, Gloria Estefan, Selena, etc.) then this is for you and you'll love this Marc Anthony album! Even if you don't perfer Latin music you'll still enjoy listening to Marc Anthony's brilliant, stunning voice and music."
