Sound Loaded [Australian]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Abraham Velez
The man who detonated the Latin Explosion of '99 returns with the scorching Sound Loaded, a 14-track continuation of his 35-million-selling English-language debut. With the same production team in place, including "Livin' la Vida Loca" authors Robi Draco Rosa and Desmond Child and producer Emilio Estefan Jr., the strapping Ricky once again gets hearts and hormones pumping the world around with his signature blend of Anglo and Latin pop flava. With hits from Santana, Jennifer Lopez, and Marc Anthony establishing the commercial viability of syncopated Spanglish sounds, Ricky need only replicate the intensity of his debut. And replicate he does. Sharp flamenco guitar ...

Barnes & Noble - Abraham Velez
The man who detonated the Latin Explosion of '99 returns with the scorching Sound Loaded, a 14-track continuation of his 35-million-selling English-language debut. With the same production team in place, including "Livin' la Vida Loca" authors Robi Draco Rosa and Desmond Child and producer Emilio Estefan Jr., the strapping Ricky once again gets hearts and hormones pumping the world around with his signature blend of Anglo and Latin pop flava. With hits from Santana, Jennifer Lopez, and Marc Anthony establishing the commercial viability of syncopated Spanglish sounds, Ricky need only replicate the intensity of his debut. And replicate he does. Sharp flamenco guitar quickly yields to the pounding, hyper-hetero surf-ska uproar of "She Bangs" offered in both English and Spanish. To those still livin' la vida loca, it's a familiar and infectious sound, with a girl that "wear[s] me out like a pair of shoes" and "looks like a flower/but...stings like a bee." The title track follows suit with wild brass bedlam and hard-rocking vocal harmonies as Ricky "slip[s] into the funk like a sweet cologne." "Jezabel" likens itself to the slow burn of Marc Anthony's "I Need to Know" with its hard, rumbafied drum rumble and spiky violins, while "The Touch" is an epic ballad of the first order. Backed by sultry, swelling strings and horns on the torrid tropical sway of "Saint Tropez," he's every Latin lover fantasy realized in full. There's no sophomore slump in evidence here. Ricky Martin has once again brought all his love and fire, and it's Sound Loaded.
All Music Guide - Jose F. Promis
Ricky Martin's second English-language album Sound Loaded did not fare nearly as well as its earth-shattering predecessor, even though the quality of the material is probably one notch higher. Several reasons could be given for this, but the most obvious is lousy marketing. First, the album's lead-off single, the electrifying (and terribly titled) "She Bangs" (arguably one of the best songs of 2000), which failed to make the U.S. Top Ten, wasn't even released as a commercial single. Second, the album's follow-up, "Nobody Wants to Be Lonely," was remixed and refashioned into a duet with red-hot Anglo-Latina vixen Christina Aguilera -- the album version is solo Ricky, and features largely acoustic accompaniment, as opposed to the remix's more bombastic instrumentation. Unbelievably, the version with Christina Aguilera wasn't released as a commercial single. Instead, the album was re-released with a single of the song clumsily attached to it (with a rubber band, no less). In other words, most of Ricky's fans, who had already bought the album, would have had to purchase it all over again in order to have the hit version of the song. And thirdly, the set's final single, "Loaded" (which was actually released commercially, indicating a base level of intelligence on the label's part), bore more than a striking resemblance to his breakthrough hit "Livin' la Vida Loca," but, by the time of its release, the magic had petered off. Those factors aside, the album is a lushly produced set, with more Latin-flavored dance cuts, such as the fun, Santana-ish "Amor," the smoldering, string-enhanced "Jezabel," the endearing "If You Ever Saw Her," and the sizzling Spanish-language track "Cambia La Piel." The ballads, however, tend to weigh the album down, such as the unmemorable "Come to Me" and "The Touch." And, finally, Latin loverman clichés abound, which bring down otherwise fine tracks such as "Saint Tropez" and the gypsy-tinged, slightly bizarre "One Night Man." Infinitely better marketing and less reliance on clichés will hopefully translate into better sales for Ricky Martin's future English-language albums, but, for the time being, Sound Loaded, an otherwise fine album (and exquisitely produced), will go down in history as something of an undeserved flop.
Rolling Stone - Arion Berger
The relentlessly likable and danceable Sound Loaded plunges listeners once again into Ricky's hothouse world, with its lush evocations of exotic climes, Spanglish salsa-club blowouts, and voodoo hussies.
