iTunes Review

Victor Manuelle became a salsa superstar on his self-titled album, and this follow-up took his career to the next level. Once again, hit-maker Sergio George produces infectious tracks that highlight Manuelle’s youthful exuberance and his improvisational interplay with his band. Above all, these tracks spotlight his romantic image. On "He Tratado," he pleads for love with a half-spoken verse, and then puts his sweetest notes into the chorus. And wait until he struts his way through the eight-minute finale, with its punchy horns and lively exchanges with the backup singers.

Customer Reviews


One of my favorites . I love "El aguila" . If you want to hear classy salsa and want to dance and enjoy listen to this album. Great Work.

Still a favorite

He Tratado was one of the first Victor Manuelle songs I remember from the late 90's when I used to dance at Salsa Carolina. This is still one of my favorite albums of all time. Contrary to what one of the other reviewers said, the songs do not all sound the same. I don't even speak Spanish, I speak French, so I can understand some Spanish and I could definitely tell all the songs apart the first time I ever heard the album. Each song has it's own little flair. To describe this CD in one word I would say classy.

One of His Best

Absolutely one of his best work, trivial to what any one has to say, he followed well in Gilberto Santa Rosa's Foot steps. Now he has become a shadow of what he used to be. His music has declined, the best of his music is his classics, can only hope he can come back to life. But simple is all he has to be.

Mentored by Gilberto Santa Rosa and produced by Sergio George, Manuelle regularly topped the tropical charts during his mid-'90s peak, as his albums Victor Manuelle (1996) and A Pesar de Todo (1997) spun off a parade of number one hits. The esteemed sonero continued his hitmaking...
