I'm not sure I understand the negativity toward this album. It's eclectic with its blend of Latin rhythms, urban beats, horns, and synths. The uptempo feel to the songs makes it fun to listen to, yet some songs, such as the title track, still manage to carry a nice message with the dance vibe.

Despite one reviewer's saying "Hotel Nacional" has a cringe-inducing shout-out to Charo--which is baseless, since Charo's catchphrase is "cuchi-cuchi"--I find it one of the more compelling tracks with lyrics that paint a vibrant image of a happenings at a plush, busy Cuban hotel. The horn line is unbelievably catchy and melds fluidly into an anthemic synth line. It's interesting and creative.

If you're looking for an album with lots of energy and contagious hooks, Miss Little Havana is an excellent purchase. It's easily my favorite album of hers since Mi Tierra and one of my favorite albums of 2011.

This is the CD I have been waiting for Gloria to put out for years! If you wanna MOVE YOUR BODY, this CD is for you. Not a ballad on the CD!!! The title track "Miss Little Havana" reminds me of old school Gloria Estefan succesfully pulled into the millenium. "Wepa" is well placed at number 1 on Billboard's Club Play charts! "Hotel Nacional" is my favorite. SASSY!!! And the much sought after R3HAL mix "Wepa" ft. Pitbull is sexy....POINT BLANK!!!

This album is my favorite album of 2011. There are several reasons for this. As a huge fan of music and up and coming singer, I am very diverse in my selection of music.

I have always loved Gloria and her music from the 80's, 90's, 00's and today. This album truely speaks of her genius and legend.

Just a quick biography on Gloria. When Gloria and the Miami Sound Machine released Conga in 1985, people were saying it was too latin for the americans and too american for the latins. Little did people know that Gloria was actually starting her own sound and genre of music. That of latin pop. There wasn't anyone in the industry who had Gloria's sound and was willing to take the risk of being rejected. Latins at that time were not main stream at all.

Conga changed the music industry forever. It charted all over the world. We look at latin pop artists today and they are coming out of the wood work. Gloria and her sound started this explosion. Gloria took the risk that no one was taking and it paid off big time!

There are very few artists in musics history that can compare to the success that Gloria has had since Conga was released. She is one of the biggest selling artists of all time! She is also one of the top charting artists of all time! She is the biggest selling latin female artist of all time! She is also the biggest selling crossover artist of all time! She has alot of credentials under her belt.

You would think that for an artist who has been in the industry for 35+ years, they would become irrelavent and out of date in 2012. So far from the truth!

Miss Little Havana is an epic album for a latin icon like Gloria! I can't even imagine any other artist trying to release an album like this one!

MLH is by far some of her best music ever. It is a bold and fresh sound that pulsates outward in a rhythmic rainbow. Fans expecting to hear the same A/C music will be surprised to say the least. With MLH she has succeeded in bringing fans contemporary dance music with sounds from the past while using technology of the present. Deep and introspective lyrics are put aside for mostly lite & joyful fun. There is one lovely slow song , "Time is Ticking" which is an ode to her past but the rest are top to bottom dance. The title song Right Away, I Can't Believe, Hotel Nacional, and Say Ay are some of the best songs on the disc. Pharrell Williams who produced most of the disc has done wonders with Gloria. He has brought a completely new sound to her extensive catalog. IMO MLH ranks up there with her best English language disc "Gloria" back in 1998. This is not your mothers music anymore. Gloria has moved on to new musical territory. She has made a risky move with MLH but it has paid off beautifully.

I had the impression that most of the songs were dance tunes. The album is good but I was not as impressed with all the songs as I had been from the snippets you can here when previewing the album. And I was looking for something reminiscent of her earlier work, which it is not quite as good as. But still enjoyable to listen to.

This cd arrived quick and well wrapped, i took a chance buying an open package and it did not disappoint. The cd was not scratched or damaged in anyway, this is my first Gloria Estefan cd, and i can't stop dancing, even when i'm driving. The "wepa" track is crazy, and the percussions are incredible.

I absolutely LOVE Gloria!
This CD wasn't what I expected, but made me dance none the less. I still have Mi Tierra as my absolute fav and I've bought that one three times over because they get scratched and worn out! This one is good, but I think I like her more traditional sound better.

I tried to really like this album, but only managed to enjoy a few songs. Pharrell does a fine job for the most part. Gloria's voice is a mismatch for this production. This is something he should have caught, unless he was following Gloria's specifications. LMH is reminiscent of gloria!, but parte dos. However, in an era where EDM has saturated the airwaves, standing and sounding relevant is not easy.

The straight ahead samba, merengue and beats don't compliment her middle weight earthy pop voice, which lacks the agility necessary to effortlessly carry such tunes. She's no Millie Quezada, Olga Tañón nor La India.

Miss Little Havana has its shining moments such as the title track, Right Away, Make Me Say Yes, Medicine and Let's Get Loud. The disco and freestyle elements of these songs better suit her. These were the sounds that made her a star.

Out of the tracks that I disliked WEPA the most as I found it extremely irritating. WEPA's lyrics were non-sensical and made a dig at Asians portraying them as socially inept and left out of the party while the rest dance. «Había una chinita sentada en un café con sus dos zapatos blancos y las medias al revés» For some reason, Cubans like to ridicule Asians. This was something that I observed a lot in Miami and on their local TV channels.

Another track that I disliked was Hotel Nacional. The swing era horns reminded me of the song "We No Speak Americano" by Yolanda and DCUP which was later covered by Pitbull as "Bon Bon." Mr. 305 made a gratuitous guest appearance on the remix to WEPA. The Estefans used to be trendsetters. If the been-there-done that beats were mildly annoying the lyrics to Hotel Nacional were definitely SMH (shaking my head).
