8 Songs, 43 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

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.

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 my favorites from Victor

Victor has some great classics from the 90's and even early 2000's. I followed his career very closely until he signed with the Estefan's.... Listen, I have nothing against Cuban salsa hell, my wife is Cuban but Victor got into that soft Cuban style and a lot of times reminds me of Willie Chirino which I could not stand as a so called Salero. Victor has to get back to his beginnings and get that salsa de bario back in his game. He still has it I just think he has been hanging in Miami too much. I love salsa and have been since I was a child and Victor became on of my favorites because he was throw back now he singing this salsa chara as I call it. Come back to us Victor!!!! I still think you got and still enjoy your great oldies.
