Synopsis

Amazon.com
Being a pop icon is nothing new to the Grammy-winning, Puerto Rican singer/actor Ricky Martin. He was a child star with the '80s kid group Menudo. And he was a regular on the soap opera General Hospital. But he hit the big time in 1999 with his smash Anglo hit Livin' la Vida Loca. On his new CD, Martin returns to his Hispanic roots with this zesty Spanish language release, which translates as Souls of Silence. Backed by poetic and pulsating string/synth/horn production from Tommy Torres, George Noriega, Emilo Estefan and Stefano, this effort comes with all of Martin's grand moods and grooves. The fiery, flamenco-flavored "Jaleo" is rendered in Latin pop and hip-hop, Spanglish versions. Both takes, along with the equally danceable numbers like "Besos de Fuego," are designed to move your bon bon. But Martin's bolero ballads "Tal Vez," the title track, penned by the other Latin star Alejandro Sanz, and Ricardo Arjona's "Assignatura Pendiente" show that Martin can sing for the heart and the hips. With this effort, Ricky Martin moves into Celine Dion territory and may be able to keep his loyal Latino dance/ pop fans while making new ones in the adult contemporary market. --Eugene Holley, Jr.

CD Reviews

Excelente álbum. Excellent album!
Daniela O | Miami, FL | 10/17/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Qué se puede decir. Ricky Martin cantando en español, no es el mismo que cantando en inglés. Este CD tiene una exitosa combinación de canciones movidas y canciones lentas. La inconfundible voz de Ricky se siente tan clara, que es como si uno lo tuviera al lado.

Las canciones promocionadas "Tal vez", "Jaleo", "Asignatura pendiente", al igual que "Y todo queda en nada" son buenísimas. El resto del CD contiene muy buenos temas y no hay ninguno en particular que sea de 'relleno'. Las baladas "Nadie más que tú" y "Si tú te vas" son excelentes.

Altamente recomendado.

For non-Spanish speaking persons, you should enjoy this production. If Hispanics that didn't understand much English were able to enjoy The Beatles and many great artists, the same could happen with Americans enjoying music in Spanish."

"I didn't think I would like it as much as Vuelve but I do. I love Jaleo, Razas, Jamas and Si Ya No Estas is my absolute favorite. Oh Ricky Te Amo!"
