I think Gilberto is the most understood salsero ever. He is the most intellectual salsero of all time and his music is for the intellectual audience. His lyrics and song-writers are of the highest quality. His voice is highly spirited yet can go very deep; into an abyss of emotions. In other words, he takes us there with every song. One must consider at this point in his career if he is the best Bolerista/Balada singer ever. He can do it all! Lastly, I cannot forget about his orchestra. The most experienced in the business.
Once again, Gilberto Santa Rosa has proven what a great singer he is. The Salsa music and the ballads are fantastic. I very much enjoyed the lyrics and the musical arrangements. It is the type of music that you will never get tired of listening to. I can't wait to see Gilberto perform these songs live. I am sure he will win another latin grammy!
Ahora si estoy satisfecho con este trabajo,recupere mi dinero del cd anterior. Con Contraste Gilberto Santa Rosa regresa al mismo estilo que estabamos acostumbrados.Los dos cds de Contraste son muy buenos.
My boyfriend loves salsa music and ballads. I bought him this CD for a "just because" present and he LOVES it! It stays in his CD player. I love the salsa disc (this is a dual disc cd, one with salsa the other with ballads) because although I cant salsa yet -- I love dancing in my car! The ballads disc is also nice.
