If you don't find the whole idea sacrilegious in itself, the album works, and in the case of the opening "De Pies a Cabeza," it works extremely well with the singer sounding effervescent as ever, delivering the song's call for a "rastaman!" with extra enthusiasm.

Clever idea, well executed, and all delivered with enough of passion that Manny's "King of Hearts" status remains intact.
