This collection of pop hits is easy to listen to and hard to turn off, which is exactly what pop music is suppose to be. This 14 song compilation truly is the best of Gloria. You'll recognize every song here, which is a tribute in itself. From infectious dance songs (1,2,3 - Get on Your Feet-Conga - Go Away)) to powerful heartbreak (I See Your Smile - Here We Are - Words Get in the Way) we get it all.
We also get the inspirational post accident (her back broken and hospitalized for months) songs, "Coming Out of the Dark" and Always Tomorrow". Even the wonderful seasonal "Christmas Through Your Eyes", quickly becoming a holiday classic, is included. Gloria Estefan is really something special and one listen to this collection is proof enough.
The music is great, the production smooth, and Gloria's emotional vocals always perfect. She makes this look so easy she sometimes doesn't get credit for how difficult creating good pop music can be. Husband Emilio, a terrific artist in his own right, always manages to give just the right production to a tune, enhancing the flavor of a song while not overpowering Gloria's emotional voice.
These hits are the perfect blend of popularity and artistry. In turns uplifting, exciting, and heartbreaking, this greatest hits album reminds us what is good about listening to radio occasionally. You might be missing out on something truly special that is right in front of us...
