Her second collection of greatest hits reflects the change in radio and the integrity of Gloria and Emilio to the music. As hip-hop and rap began getting more and more airplay, Gloria continued to make great music, finding other venues like films and the Olympics to augment the occasional dance club hit or beautiful ballad.
This makes for an eclectic mix of great individual songs, but without the easy flow of the first collection. This caught some critics, who were expecting a repeat performance, off guard, and caused them to compare the two unfairly and dismiss this one as inferior. I've owned this since the day it was released and can honestly say they were wrong.
There are some wonderful songs here, including three new ones recorded as a bonus. At first, it was the kind of CD I would pop in for a few selected songs. Over time, however, in spite of its eclectic nature, I found myself leaving it on and letting it play through. The flow of this second collection lies in the high quality production given these hits. The same perfection of Gloria's more artistic Latin efforts such as Mi Tierra and Alma Caribena can be found here, each song framed by Emilio's attention to detail. The musical quality of this collection is its flow.
1) Turn the Beat Around (Classic Mix) -- This is Gloria's 'cover' of Vicki Sue Robinson's disco classic. A lively and fun blast from the past.
2) Everlasting Love -- Taken from Gloria's album of 'covers' for songs she grew up with, this is a smoothly produced minutes of pure nostalgia.Read more ›
