This review is from: 7 (Audio CD)
The problem I found with '7' was that it reminded me of a lot of songs I've heard from the past. For example, 'The Way You Touch Me' had a riff that could have been sampled from 'Believe' by Cher. 'Break Me Shake Me' reminded me of songs from the 1980s and perhaps some of the songs by Belinda Carlisle. 'Free' could have been a sample from a Whitesnake song. 'Live It Up' reminded me heavily of Ronan Keating's song 'Life is a Rollercoaster'. I'm not accusing him of plagiarism but I guess it is hard to write tunes that are original these days. Then again it shows you that Enrique has grown up with a large amount of musical influences - and why not! Favourites are 'Say It', 'Addicted', 'Wish you were Here' and 'Roamer' but I've always been a ballad type of person. I did not like 'Be Yourself' and 'You Rock Me'It was especially nice to have 'Be With You' on this CD too. Buy this CD - its a grower.
