"This album really represents what Mr. Vega is all about, "SALSA". Tony Vega is one of the most complete Salsa singers in the industry. From Cuban mambo, guaguanco to the more up to date, Puertorican style salsa he has it all. I have been listening to Tony for years, if fact guys like Tony is what make sensual, steamy and "too suave" salsa work. I own two cd stores and I listen to new music everyday and I can tell you, most of the stuff is "BORING, DUPLICATED pr IMITATED. Ladies, if you like salsa Music, this is it. Gentlemen, do the right thing, make your lady fall in love again, buy her this album. As they say in the NYC, this CD is the bomb. The softer more romantic salsa is truly represented by this Gentle, down to earth Boricua."

"I didn't know too much about Salsa and wasn't familiar with many of the artists but always liked the style. The first Salsa CD I bought was D'Mingo's "Que Vacile Mi Gente" but beside that I had no clue. I used to hear Salsa blasting from cars and apartments during the summer and I got a kind of nostalgia when I heard it. One day I was walking along Tremont Ave. in the Bronx & heard Salsa blaring from a speaker outside a store. I was so attracted to it that I entered the store and asked who the artist was: Tony Vega. Ever since that day I've loved Salsa.Tony Vega has a unique style. Has has this traditional Latin gentleman appeal to him. Unlike a lot of artists, even "gringos" will be attracted to his style. It is gentle and romantic yet energetic and happy. My favorite tracks on the album are "Ella" and "Dejame Soñar", featuring the legendary late Tito Puente. If you are a true Salsa fan,this album is a necessity to your collection. He is one of the greats."
