With many artists, early records are just not of the quality that the later ones are. However, this one is definitely worth the while. Since it's less geared towards a conquest of the world markets, and more geared towards Latin America, where success had already been attained, it's not such a n overdone latin music stereotype, but still retains those wonderful Latin qualities. It has the songs that make you want to get out on the dance floor and shake that booty (for example "María"), but in brilliant contrast, some ballads that just make you sigh at the romanticism of it all. One of my favorites would have to be "Te extraño, te olvido, te amo" (I miss you, I forget you, I love you), by now a classic in all South America. Another of the factors that led me to liking this CD is that it's sung Spanish. In my own opinion, which obviously isn't shared by all, the true latino music is in Spanish - it automatically changes when it's sung in the Spanglish that Ricky's new album and albums from say Enrique Iglesias seem to favor. There's just no way of creating the authenticity when the language is no longer the original one. But overall, I've definitely got to tip my hat to Mr.Martin and his crew for coming out with an album like this that provides something for every taste, and still manages to be good. Even sworn Ricky Martin haters have had to admit that "this one's not so bad"

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent CD 3 Jan 2014

A fantastic CD. Track three and track 13 in particular, are excellent. Tracks 10, 11 and 12 are really good, as is track 7. Good mix of slow and faster songs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Engaging Latin pop from Ricky Martin 27 April 2001
By Michael J. Mazza - Published on
Format:Audio CD
I consider "A Medio Vivir" to be one of Ricky Martin's two best CDs (the other one being the superb "Vuelve"). This CD of Latin pop contains many well-crafted songs, all performed with skill and enthusiasm by the versatile Martin. He can play it smooth or belt it out like a true male diva--whatever the song calls for. All of the lyrics are in Spanish.
As a whole, the songs on "A Medio Vivir" are a diverse bunch. "Corazon" has a disco feel, and "Revolucion" has an edgier rock sound. "Bombom de Azucar" has delightfully playful rhythms and lyrics. "Maria" is the most obviously Latin of the songs, with its strongly percussive instrumentation and overall tropical flavor. Ricky's performances are especially strong on the emotional ballads: "Volveras," "Te Extrano," and "Fuego de Noche."
"A Medio Vivir" is an essential disc for fans of Latin pop. And those who are only familiar with Ricky's English-language work should definitely check out this disc. His energy transcends language barriers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Mesmerizing 20 Jan 2000
By christina crites - Published on
Format:Audio CD
This album was the first all foreign language one that I have purchased. I had listened to his English debut and then saw Ricky Martin in concert. After that, I was hooked. I went on-line and found out all of his solo albums. Since I live in a very small Kentucky town, it's hard for me to find his c/d's, and A Medio Vivir was the only one they had. I was a little nervous before putting it in but after it was over I was left with a feeling of peace and happines. With beautiful ballads like Fuego De Noche, Nieve De Dia, Te Extrano, Te Olvido, Te Amo, and Como Decirte Adios, this album is one that good to take with you when you just want to relax in the bubble-bath filled tub. But it also has some very impressive faster songs as well such as Maria, Corazon, Revolucion, and my personal favourite, Donde Estaras. There is not a track on this c/d that isn't well worth listening to. Ricky's voice soars like no other male vocalist out there, and I personally enjoy this album much more than his English one because to me, his voice conveyes much more feeling in it than in the English debut. I highly recommend to anyone of good musical taste Ricky Martin's A Medio Vivir

5.0 out of 5 stars Has to be the best Ricky Martin cd 7 Oct 1999
By R. Kearns-White - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this CD after the Grammys hoopla, and after buying Vuelve and Ricky Martin (99). I was so caught up in the energy surrounding those two albums, I didn't even pay attention to the more mid-tempo and rock sounds of A Medido Vivir (AMV).
However, after picking it up several months later, I must admit that this is my favorite Ricky Martin CD (followed by Vuelve and Ricky Martin-99). AMV is, argumentatively, his best album. It is also a very transitional album. Here he becomes the mature ballader we all know and love, and pushes the bubblegum to the side.
Even if you can not speak Spanish (and I CAN NOT), you will enjoy AMV and Vuelve very much. The passion and soul of his music, and his talent shine through all of the "flash-in-the-pan" sentiment from the American media. Don't take Ricky Martin 99 as a collection of his definitive sound, because it is not.

5.0 out of 5 stars KEEPS GETTING BETTER 15 Nov 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Audio CD
I along with millions of others first discovered Ricky Martin after his sensational Grammy performance. I bought Ricky Martin'99 (Livin La Vida Loca) and loved it. I then bought his next earlier CD "Vuelve" and loved it even more. Still working backwards I bought this CD and I have to say it's as good as Vuelve, possibly better. There's really something for everyone on this disc, the ballads are very touching. Bombon de Azucar is pure cheese but I LOVE IT THE MOST! This is definitely a keeper, GO RICKY GO!

4.0 out of 5 stars An all-around great CD. 24 Oct 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Audio CD
If you own Vuelve and Ricky Martin's English debut album, then you need to add this one to your collection. It's similar to his English album, in that the songs are primarily pop-oriented with some Latin flavor (whereas Vuelve is all Latin-inspired). But, just like Vuelve, there are tracks that will haunt you long after you turn off the music. No one sings with the passion and emotion that Ricky does, and you'll definitely get plenty of it in Fuego de Noche - Nieve de Dia, Te Extrano - Te Olvido - Te Amo, A Medio Vivir, Volveras, and the tear-jerker Como Decirte Adios. This also has the original version of the HUGE hit Maria, plus some other great ones like Donde Estaras, Somos la Semilla, Bombom de Azucar and Corazon. Fantastico como siempre!
