All Music Guide - Heather Phares
Given the surprisingly soft performance of Ricky Martin's second English language album, Sound Loaded, 2001's La Historia attempted to direct fans back to what attracted them to him in the first place: his voice and smoldering sensuality.

For all of his fans, La Historia serves as a welcome reminder of -- or introduction to -- some of Ricky Martin's best moments.
