Valió la pena

Barnes & Noble - Mark Schwartz
Valió la pena -- it was worth it, in Spanish. And that's what patient fans will say when this hot collection comes there way. Anthony turns the tender musings of his first Latin pop album, Amar sin mentiras, into dance-floor fire starters, proving once more that no matter how many styles he tries on, salsa is still this Nuyorican son's forte. The album marks his first collaboration with producer and keyboardist Sergio George since his breakthrough Todo a su tiempo.

A special bonus is his passionate performance of the de facto Puerto Rican anthem, "Lamento borincano," by Rafael Hernandez.

    Si, valio la pena comprar esta CD

    Although the U.S. pop industry may dwell on Marc Anthony's ballads, this is where it's at for this fabuloso singer. A great album whose only fault is that it's too short!

    Brava Marc

    Marc you have out done yourself on several of the salsero songs on this CD. Lamento borincano is definately my favorite and reminiscent of old world class Spanish Cultural music which I grew up listening to. It brought a tear to my eye and chills to my spine.
