Album Review

Puerto Rican salsa god Victor Manuelle takes his audience by surprise with his 2006 release Decisión Unámine. Just when you thought that this guy couldn't get any better, the writing couldn't get catchier, the arrangements funkier, or Manuelle himself sound any stronger, a label change and one salsero's steely determination breaks all expectations. Covering wider musical territory than in past efforts, including rollicking samba breakdown sections and slinky Santana-esque Latin rock cha chas, there is a bit of the unexpected around every corner. His move from longtime label Sony Discos to Norte is a surprising shift, which may or may not have a relationship to Manuelle's seemingly renewed vigor and creativity. With some notable guests, including Eddie Palmieri, Domingo Quiñones, and Cheo Feliciano, Manuelle's place at the head of the salsa family's table has become clear. Not many artists get salsa legends to sing coro on their record. Decision Unamine is a bold statement both in its title and in the punch that it packs. This could be the year's finest commercial salsa release. The ballots are in, the votes have been counted, and the decision is unanimous. ~ Evan C. Gutierrez, Rovi

About Time!

I was a really big Victor Fan when we came out with his first few albums. I must his last 3 albums prior to this one have not done anything for me, but this one is pretty great. The two tracks with Palmieri are awesome and Victor is in good sonero form. You got Johnny Rivera and Domingo Quinones doing back up vocals in just about every track, you can't go wrong. I really recommend this album, and for any and every Puerto Rican to have Puerto Rico 2006.

EXPECTED MORE THAN WHAT I GOT OUT OF THIS ALBUM

WITH SO MUCH TALENT AND A FEW LEGENDS OF SALSA/MAMBO ON THIS ALBUM, VICTOR MANUELLE SHOULD HAVE DONE BETTER. The ONLY 2 songs that I really liked on this one are: "PUERTO RICO 2006" and "DOS GENERACIONES" IF the entire album was done along the lines of these 2 songs it would be a CLASSIC. The one with DON OMAR was okay, but I expected it to be much better. Victor needs to get AWAY from that SALSA MONGA format for an entire album, como lo demonstro aqui con las canciones de: "PUERTO RICO 2006" Y "DOS GENERACIONES" Esta grabacion pudiera haber sido mejor si todos las canciones eran mas o menos como: "PUERTO RICO 2006" Y "DOS GENERACIONES" Victor Manuelle tiene que separarse o abandonar la SALSA MONGA por una grabacion/elepe entero. Me gustaron estas dos canciones y mas nada de esta grabacion.

Nice

Love this album
