A Review of Veronica

"Once again, Veronica has made a great album. I bought the first album in 1996 out of pure curiosity. I had read about her in a few magazines and I though she might be good. Let me tell you, the 2nd album is twice as good as the first. I know she had some problems with Mercury Records, so she switched over to HOLA. The 2nd company seemed more organized but I still can't believe for the second time in a row they failed to publicize her album. Although the publicity was pretty poor, this is truly a great album. I actually wrote Veronica a fan letter in early 1998 and was surprised when a few months later I got a response! I think Veronica does a good job of representing where she comes from (Soundview-Castle Hill, the Bronx) and representing the Latino community. Not as a putdown but I agree 100% with the reviewer who compared Veronica to the likes of Jennifer Lopez. Jennifer Lopez is good but comparing Jennifer to Veronica is like comparing the Beatles to the Backstreet Boys or Britney Spears to Mary J. Blige. She clearly is the more vocally talented of the two. Jennifer is an atress and Veronica, a singer. It's really a shame things did not turn out as planned for her. I was surprised and kind of angered when I read here that Mercury was actually even considering marketing Veronica as a light skinned Black. Not only would that be a lie and denying her heritage, but seriously...she is a light skinned Puerto Rican, who would they be fooling? I was sort of disgusted by that idea. It seems as though they definitely did not have her best interests in mind.So, to wrap things up, judging by her great vocal talents, unique style, and the fact that she cares about her fans enough to respond to a fan letter, I'd say she's not only talented but also genuine."
