5.0 out of 5 stars His best album yet!, September 20, 2004
By 
El Triguenito (Chicago, IL USA) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Autentico (Audio CD)
Aside from all those "Greatest Hits" cd's that you can find on Gilberto Santa Rosa, "Autentico" is, without a doubt, his greatest album yet. Unlike most salsa cd's that you find nowadays which only contain about 8 tracks, "Autentico" gives you 14 head-banging tracks (1 ballad, 1 plena, 12 salsa). ALL of his salsa tracks are on fire y tiene un swing tremendo!! He has a plena track on there too that makes you wonder why plena isn't played as much as it should be. This cd is very powerful and very moving, especially if you're a true salsero, which is why I say that it is a MUST-HAVE!!! Those who buy it will be 100% satisfied! Thank you Gilberto for sharing your wonderful gift to the salsa world!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sizzling!, February 9, 2005
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Autentico (Audio CD)
For once I agree with the Amazon reviewer - Gilberto Santa Rosa's new album is outstanding, and must be a shoe-in for a Grammy (but then I thought that about Marc Anthony's Libre.)

The whole album is a smoking hot Latin Jam, with some great salsa romantica for contrast. The arrangements are innovative, complex and exciting. The plena - Lo Que Arraso is my favorite, and things really let loose on the last three tracks.

I have always enjoyed Santa Rosa's singing, tho as is usually the case, some salsas are just more interesting than others. But Autentico is a coherent consistent piece of work of very high quality musicianship.

Autentico is a must-have for just about anyone into Latin Music. You should buy it now!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great album, January 22, 2005
This review is from: Autentico (Audio CD)
Gilberto says that this is his best album and one where he had the most influence. In it, he has his normal salsa romantica (which i'm not a big fan of) but also throws in a bolero and A PLENA !! Then at the end of the album the last three tracks are three old school hard hitting classic style Salsas that are amazing, especially #12 - excellent to dance to. This album is much better than his last and definitely worth purchasing. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gilberto has outdone himself, December 16, 2004

A must have. As a timba fan I'm glad to see Gilberto flirting on the timba edge. Throwing in some Giraldo Piloto,and Isaac Delgado songs does not hurt either.
