Victor Manuelle's first, superlative effort for Sony Latin still remains one of his most swinging records; possessing more than good looks (something that seems like a commandment), Manuelle is an improvisational singer with great ability, and this production is mostly oriented to Gilberto Santa Rosa's style of romantic-cum-traditional salsa mélange (Santa Rosa was the producer). Manuelle's vocalizing style may remind one of a younger version of Rubén Blades, but this is the kind of sonero that was necessary to add the kind of spark needed in an ailing genre. A must for salsa fans, the highly promoted tune was "Me Dará el Consentimiento" by Pedro Azael. ~ José A. Estévez, Jr.
