I have to give it to Celia Cruz for taking the risk in coming out with a dancemix cd of songs that have made her a household in the salsa world and for giving her all.
The CD itself is not bad at all, taking under consideration that all of this tracks were originally salsa songs and the good thing here is that the salsa feeling does not get lost in the mix and for that I really cherish this album, cause, it stays true to the roots of the original recordings, but, makes it more fresh, more enjoyable and for sure more fun to all of us that we enjoy that 'dance' beat.
I personally think that the remix for LA VIDA ES UN CARNIVAL is one of the best ones in this cd and a very good dance club mix of LA NEGRA TIENE TUMBAO that I personally prefer the spanish version rather than the english one as well as QUE LE DEN CANDELA which will make you desire to be in South Beach under the warm sand and blue skies.
I'm sure Celia Cruz die hard fans will find this cd as an insult and will hate it, but for a new fan like me... this is heaven and I would have never even consider her if she would have not come out with a dance mix cd like this one.
Now, I can go back to her original songs and make a decision on what sounds better, but, for the moment what I have playing in my stereo sounds very good and all I have to say is AZUCAR!!!
