Album Review

In his fourth Sony Latin release, Victor Manuelle continues with the Sergio George styling that granted him much greater commercial success than his earlier two solo efforts. It seems that George's pushy, bombastic writing challenges Manuelle's improvising ability to a greater extent, thus giving the production a live, unconfined feel. Omar Alfanno's "Dile a Ella" is a tune that bristles with uninhibited energy. "Dile a Ella," the self-penned "He Tratado," and "El Aguila" are exercises of contumacious swing in every way; among other delights, "Nuestra Historia" is a juicy, astute mix of the usual George sound and the son montuno genre. A must for late-'90s salsa fans, and one that continued to solidify Manuelle's position as a favorite in later salsa generations. ~ José A. Estévez, Jr., Rovi

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.

Victor Manuelle emerged as a leading voice among the generation of New York salsa performers who rose to prominence in the mid-'90s, along with Marc Anthony and India, who were his only rivals in terms of success and popularity. 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...
