Before his "La Vida Loca" days - more substance, no cheese. Ricky's singing is smoother and more relaxed than when he sings in English. doesn't matter if you don't speak Spanish, the tunes are so well put together & tuneful that you'll be singing along. Excellent Latin pop.

CD Reviews

When you buy this CD, you will know why it won a Grammy.
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In one word: maravilloso! If you've just recently discovered Ricky Martin, you owe it to yourself to buy this album. Even if you don't understand Spanish, you will feel the emotion in every song. This album will take you another's THAT good. It is by far the best album he has ever will be haunted by these songs long after you turn off the music. Lola, La Bomba, La Copa de la Vida and Marcia Baila will have you dancing around the house, singing at the top of your lungs, while Vuleve, Casi un Bolero, Perdido Sin Ti and Hagamos el Amor will leave you breathless. Do yourself a favor and buy a Spanish dictionary - once you understand what he's saying, you'll never want him to sing in English again!"
Now THIS is Latin pop!

"More than slightly superior to his current English release, Ricky Martin's Grammy-winning, 1998 release "Vuelve" exemplifies what a delectable dish can be made with the right combo of artist, producers & authentic Latin ingredients. Can we get seconds to go, please?? Unlike his current debut in the English-speaking market (your basic American power-pop with Latin frosting), "Vuelve" finds Martin in a more passionate musical rendevous, digging deeper into his newly-rediscovered Latin roots. Star-making producer/songwriters K.C. Porter, Robi Rosa & Luis Gomez Escolar take top honors for knowing what Ricky wants to say, and creating vehicles that show his talent in it's most flattering light. The samba-soaked, "Por Arriba, Por Abajo" and "La Bomba" make sitting still out of the question, while "Lola, Lola" makes The Girl From Ipanema sound like your kindergarten teacher. The Desmond Child influence felt on the 1998 World Cup theme song "La Copa de La Vida" only works here because thanks to Rosa & Porter, the tune so blatantly echoes Martin's hugely successful 1995 hit, "Maria". Without the seasonings by that dynamic duo, Child would have Martin as just a screaming, Bon Jovi sound-alike out in the middle of a soccer field.For the romantics, plenty of palpitations are to be found in the gospel-infused title song by Venezuela's Franco da Vita; the dreamy, drifting "Perdido Sin Ti", and the melodically exquisite "Hagamos el Amor", the frank lyrics of which appear to mark a deliberate turn in the singer's public image from teen superstar to adult artist.This masterpiece was the vehicle that put Ricky on the pinnacle of credibility from where he was able to swoop down and slay the Goliath American pop market. Let's hope Porter, Rosa, et. al. will be waiting to point the way back once the dance with Desmond has ground to a halt."
