This one is slick! I have several of Chente's recordings and they are all very good. He is most loved for his more macho rancheras found on many of his other collections, yet it is in this group of 15 ballads that I feel he most expertly uses the top end of his legendary voice to add just the right touch. These songs showcase the full spectrum of his amazing voice in a very smooth but powerfully impressive way. If I could find any fault in some of his rancheras (hard to do) it would be that the top end of his vocals are used a bit too much, and thus do not sound as dramatic as they can in his more balanced tunes. This is not a consideration in this group of tunes. The musicianship is excellent and Vicente's vocals are without comparison. His power and clarity seem to be effortless and he uses the full range to really paint a musical picture in each song. Most awesome are the catchy tunes "Me Basta", "Preso" and "Todo Se Derrumbo Dentro De Mi" ...and the other twelve! There really are no duds on the disc. I know some Vicente purists will think I'm strange for preferring this disc to some of his other greats but believe me, this is one awesome display of his greatness and an enduring listen. Give it a shot, it's a nice change of pace for Chente fans.
Mi Mama compro este disco hace mucho y habia disfrutado escuchandolo, pero se "extravio" de casa.. Me dio mucha alegria encontrarlo en Amazon, asi que no perdi oportunidad de comprarlo.. Me gustan mucho los cover que hace Vicente de estas populares romanticonas..
