Top critical review
on 10 October 2000
When i bought this album i was expecting it to be brilliant, but despite giving it time to grow on me, it just doesn't have the same quality as her English album. The standouts are the Spanish versions of 'Genie' 'Come on over' and 'Turn to you'. The rest of the album is basically slow love ballads, with he exception of a few 'salsa' wannabe songs. Although Christina TRIES to sound Mexican/Latin all she ends up doing is insulting the music genre. Often she sounds like she hasn't got a clue what she singing, and even though shes only just started learning Spanish, its not an excuse. There are singers such as 'Selena' who despite never speaking a word of Spanish beforehand, perfectly managed to sound like they meant what they were singing. Although some of the songs such as 'contigo en la distancia' are very touching, most of the album is considerably weak. Christina truly doesn't even try to conceal the fact this album was thrown together in a couple of months. If you're a Christina fan, buy it, If you're a REAL Latin music fan, then don't!
