All Music Guide - L. Katz
The acknowledged king of adult contemporary offers up a CD that is chock-full of feel-good ballads. Whether he's covering Sting or Santana, Iglesias manages to deliver the material with the perfect combination of sentiment and showmanship. Some songs, such as "Crazy," the ballad originally made famous by Patsy Cline, are a little bit too gooey, but others, such as a beautifully arranged version of "Mammy Blue," are just gooey enough. The album is not short on guest stars; Dolly Parton's vocals soar on the duet "When You Tell Me That You Love Me."

The acknowledged king of adult contemporary offers up a CD that is chock-full of feel-good ballads. Whether he's covering Sting or Santana, Iglesias manages to deliver the material with the perfect combination of sentiment and showmanship. Some songs, such as "Crazy," the ballad originally made famous by Patsy Cline, are a little bit too gooey, but others, such as a beautifully arranged version of "Mammy Blue," are just gooey enough. The album is not short on guest stars; Dolly Parton's vocals soar on the duet "When You Tell Me That You Love Me." For the contemporary version of Beethoven's "Ode to Joy," the entire London Symphony Orchestra along with the Ambrosian Singers provide a rousing, festive counterpoint to Iglesias' laid-back lead vocals. There is only one song where collaboration doesn't work perfectly: On the cover of Sting's "Fragile," the writer himself performs lead guitar and backing vocals, making the track sound oddly like a karaoke version with an extremely good studio singer. Overall this album is difficult to fault, though. It is beautifully scored, easily accessible to any listener, and performed to perfection in Iglesias' inimitable style. It's liable to sound familiar from the first time you listen to it; and indeed, even if you haven't heard the CD in its entirety before, you've probably heard most of the tracks on a commercial, a radio station, or a compilation of romantic fireside songs.

    Good Music Let Down By Average Sound Quality

    This disc caught my attention after listening to a friend's. I was never a fan of J.I. but the musical arrangements of several songs therein seduced me enough to desire it. However, B & N sent me a copy from Sony Entertainment Holland instead of the vastly superior USA print! The disc from Holland is bright and compressed in audio. A big let down! B&N could have avoided by making it known to buyers should any disc be an import- especially their country of origin!! This review is based on the Holland import.

    "Crazy" for Julio

    This is to let any one who reads this know how much I've enjoyed the "Crazy" CD of songs by Julio Iglesias. Somehow, the CD itself got lost although I still have the case. At any rate, I must order another now as I love listening to this CD while driving.
