5.0 out of 5 stars The best of Gloria Estefan March 26, 1999
Format:Audio CD
CUTS BOTH WAYS is the very best of Gloria's albums. She was at the very top of her singing and writing abilities when she made this one. Every single song is excellent. The ballads are just sweet and beautiful. The few dance music songs have a latin flavor and are just plain fun.
Her work since this album has been hit and miss. This is the best!

5.0 out of 5 stars Here We Are December 27, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I love this album for more reasons than any human can understand fully, for reasons that go beyond Gloria and her voice and the music. Plus look at Gloria's face on the album cover. Isn't it enough to make you melt?

I'll say "Here We Are" was the 1st song of Gloria's that I really connected with. (I have sort of enshrined the "cassette single" of that song in a plastic protective case. I can't play the cassette anymore, 'cause it might break and I can't let that happen.) This song brought me rushing into Gloria's music with full force. Plus, when I hear Gloria's singing voice, I hear the timbre of the speaking voice of someone I know and love in my own personal world.

In the end, as a "review", I'd say that with most things, how much you "like" something will be determined by your own personal, unique characteristics that have been shaped by your life. So what I like may not be what you like, the depth of what I like may not be the depth of your "like", and likely won't be. Come to whatever you listen to musically and ask if it "speaks to you". This album speaks of love and loss and pain and even moments of release and just "fun". If you have felt any of these, you will have some connection to this album.

And Gloria's voice is unlike any other in music. I've listened to her voice evolve over the past 15-20 years. Her current singing voice (as of 2005-06) is deeper and a little more "sandy" as compared to this Album and earlier Albums...which is very light and smooth as a newborn's laugh. But of course, everyone ages. And still, even saying that her voice has changed, I'll say her voice is still creamy good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gloria's second megahit album June 17, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Gloria Estefan experienced much success with her LET IT LOOSE album. In 1989,her second megahit album,CUTS BOTH WAYS,was released. The hits are HERE WE ARE,DON'T WANNA LOSE YOU,GET ON YOUR FEET and the title track. The latter does not appear on 1992's GREATEST HITS. Jon Secada made a few guest appearances on this album. The CD and cassette feature Spanish versions of OYE MI CANTO(Hear My Voice) and DON'T WANNA LOSE YOU. The latter's translation is SI VOY E PERDERTE. Imagine the Backstreet Boys doing their recording of the same title in Spanish(their song is completely different words and music). This is the last album to bear the artist as Gloria Estefan & Miami Sound Machine. While on tour promoting this album,Gloria injured her back in a bus accident and successfully recovered. This happened in March 1990. Gloria and her band continued touring after the accident. Great album!

3.0 out of 5 stars Cutting right through November 19, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I'll give you three good reasons to buy this album:
HERE WE ARE is one of the most poignant ballads Gloria has ever written: the new love found from begining to sad end, with a positive look at a possible - although difficult - turn-it-into-friendship happy-ending.
YOUR LOVE IS BAD FOR ME: you love the guy, but you are distant from each other and you know he cheats on you, still you can't let go of this feeling...ever been in a long-distance relationship? if you had, listen to this and become the main role character off the song...
CUTS BOTH WAYS: the ending track of the whole CD. A semi-acoustic ballad, bittersweet and fighting, just unbelievably good!
And if that's not good enough you have 3 other Top 10 hits (including the Summer '89 # 1 single DON'T WANNA LOSE YOU) and some real party n up-tempo tracks (SAY and OYE MI CANTO).
A sureshot more mature album

4.0 out of 5 stars DON'T WANNA LOSE YOU! November 20, 2003
Format:Audio CD
For many Gloria Estefan came from a really dance fan base to a more pop-adult contemporary oriented audience. By her fourth album Gloria sounded more mature and experience. "Cuts Both Ways", is a peak album for Estefan, in name of fame, she was at her peak. No wonder this album is one of her best too. Don't Wanna Lose You" her 2nd #1 single is a classic track not only for Estefan but for the world of music, with a strong message and an amazing music background that made the song sound timeless. "Here We Are" why? this wasn't #1? is really strong and great. "Get On Your Feet" an uplifting song by miss Estefan that failed to reach the top 10, stopped at #11, but a great guitar background. "Oye Mi Canto" an extremely latin flavor song, sounds so espiritual and intimate, almos like a cry from the soul, great song, that didn't reach the top 40 unfairly, because is a great Estefan gem. "Cuts Both Ways" a third ballad it stopped before the top 40 too, but is no drop out, it's a keeper, great AC song. After all the mixture of refine latin beats, great lyrics, and a very rock album, "Cuts Both Ways" is one of the best albums of Gloria Estefan and band.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cuts Right To The Heart! September 7, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Wonderfully timeless album by an under-rated artist! Gloria should be a superstar! She writes and sings her own beautiful songs...with a touch of class.

"Here We Are" is a lush ballad that goes through all the stages of a relationship: finding that initial spark, falling in love, then breaking-up but still never losing the flame for that special someone. With lyrics like: "But no-one knows what's going on inside...and all the love I feel for you, is something I should hide"...Oy! I can't describe how much I love this song...it is so real...so personal...so relatable...

The titular song "Cuts Both Ways" is also another heartbreaking song about how two people can't live with each other...but can't live without each other. Gloria really pours her heart and soul into the chorus...I have lost count over the amount of times I have bawled my eyes out listening to this tune...so catchy is this song, it has reach the top of my iTunes Top 25 Playlist!...and I have over 8000+ songs!

If you are a hopeless romantic, please buy this album for these two songs alone.
