EDITORS’ NOTES

Three years after his pop breakthrough, 2014’s guest-studded Fórmula, Vol. 2, bachata king Romeo Santos returns with a more intimate set of grooves, sounding as if he’d rediscovered the sensual pulse of that singularly Dominican rhythm. Golden once again oscillates between delicate and danceable, with the most striking moments swirling like R&B slow jams built from pointillist Latin percussion (“Imitadora”). Whatever the tempo, though, the main draw remains his airy-but-aching falsetto, which hits soulful new heights (“Tuyo”). And while Golden scales back his previous eclecticism, Santos still sprinkles in a few surprises, including a mischievous tribute to Motown ballads (“Un Vuelo A La”).

Porque?

Romeo, you're a talented man and should have known better than this. This album is like listen the same thing over and over again. Todo mi respectos porque se que pusiste muchos trabajo y esfuerzo.
Si quería hablar de ti y alagarte porque no escribe un libro?

Lost his magic

He lost his touch...his songs used to captivate everyone the moment it would begin to play; not the case anymore. What a shame. I've always been a huge fan.

Definitely not his best album but I am enjoying the songs that I do like...
