CD Reviews

A modern-day classic
04/10/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This CD was a major success by not merely being a collection of songs. Instead, the production is a song cycle based around the concept of a woman's relationships with the men in her life. The music and lyrics were written especially for Vikki by Roberto Livi and Bebu Silvetti (Rocio Durcal, Julio Iglesias, Pimpinela). The result is a stunning marriage of the singer with the material -- Vikki is a potent, fiery performer, and here she's singing some smart, incisive lyrics with melodies that are instantly memorable. The disc produced three major hits: "Hay Otro en Tu Lugar," a relentless kiss-off number set to a propulsive beat; the poignant weeper "Mala Suerte"; and, best of all, the powerful title song, in which Vikki emotes about the difficulties of keeping a man in her life. Great stuff, with even the album tracks being memorable, especially the Caribbean-flavored "No Te Enganes" and the mariachi-laced "Cuando Nos Separemos." A truly timeless album, gorgeously produced by Livi and Silvetti and featuring some of Vikki's gutsiest vocals. A winner, all the way around."
