Editorial Reviews

Step into high gear with his recently taped Ricky Martin MTV Unplugged, the one-hour special. This marks the 19th MTV Unplugged production for MTV Latin America and a first for the newly launched MTV Tr3s. The Unplugged experience is so unique because it allows artists and musicians to reinvent themselves and take risks. During the show, Martin incorporated Caribbean beats through roaring trumpets, accordions, violins, percussions and saxophones to revamp hits such as 'La Bomba', 'Lola Lola' and 'La Plena'. The Puerto Rican sensation was joined onstage with renowned producer and composer Tommy Torres and La Mari of the Spanish electronic flamenco band Chambao, to perform his new song 'Tu Recuerdo'. Martin also performed the new tracks 'La Plena' and 'Con tu Nombre'. The UNICEF Ambassador of Goodwill also took the opportunity to dedicate his show to the children of the World who suffer from oppression, poverty and the casualties of war. The humanitarian will be honored by the Latin Grammys in November 2006 as ''Person of the Year''.

5.0 out of 5 stars So you thought he was a one-hit wonder... December 15, 2006
Format:DVD
Here's Ricky at his best! Doing the songs that made him famous in Latin America before his explosion in the English market. For the type of songs that he signs, you REALLY have to know how to sing. And singing he does; belting the HELL out of Fuego de Noche y Nieve de Dia and Vuelve (reaching a pristine A in ..sin embargo aqui sigo insistiendote). As he reached that part of the song, I was wondering how he was going to make it. Would the chorus assist him? Would he down play it? But no, he did it by himself, loud and strong!!! You REALLY have to be good to sound the way he does with only 4 or 5 acoustic instruments.

But it is not all about the high notes. What about the low, deep notes in Perdido sin ti. Perfect!!! He is magical in the semi-autobiographical Asignatura Pendiente. He does equally great in his 3 new songs. One look at Pegate and you'll see that the "bon bon" is still alive and shaking, almost as if it had a mind of its own... Let me not stray away from the real subject at hand.

This is not, ladies and gentlemen, the watered-down version of Ricky Martin, with the catchy tunes, vida-loca, shake your bom-bom, she-bangs. This is the Ricky of Les Miserables, the one who could sing a whole song (A Medio Vivir) laying sideways on an easy chair while going back and forth from his natural voice to a falsetto like it was a walk in the park, the one with all kinds of colors and nuances in his voice. The one who relied on his interpretative talent and emotions to mesmerize audiences all over the world. A force to be reckoned with. I'm glad to see that that Ricky is still very much alive and arguably better than ever. Bravo Ricky!!!

I became a Ricky Fan just before his famous Grammy's Performance of La Copa De Vida... Vuelve was a fantastic album. Since his spread into Mainstream American Music he's been met with mixed reviews. One thing no one can deny about Ricky is that the mf can sing, he can dance, and he looks good doing it.

MTV's Unplugged Series give artists the chance for a toned down intimate performance. Mariah, Alanis, Eric Clapton, Alicia Keys, and many others have all done Unplugged Specials. The idea is that the entire performance is non-electric. (i.e. Acoustic Guitars, Acoustic Bass.. no electronic sound assistance other than microphones and amplifiers). Ricky Martin really delivered on his performances in this one.

There were just two things I didn't like. The show was obviously edited between songs so I don't know if we didn't get ALL the songs he performed or not, I wish we had more of the between song banter that artists tend to do, but all that was obviously edited.

His setlist was somewhat dissapointing. Aside from some material that was completely new for this performance, most of the songs he performed were Pre-America explosion. I would have loved to hear something like Solo Quiero Amarte, or Juramento, or Tal Vez, or something like that which would easily lend itself to an acoustic rendition. Also, I have a personal believe that any live performance from any artist should include classics as well as recent hits.. you never know where your fan base is in the audience.

But it was nice to hear some of my favorites like Maria, Volveras, Lola Lola, and La Bomba.

Unlike Ricky's other concerts this one is on a small scale with not much spectacle, but that's the point. So, don't be confused if you get this and wonder why the venue looks so small.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unplugged November 7, 2006
Format:DVD
This is a very good presentation for Ricky he is so connected to his fans, I really liked it. Maybe if you don't speak Spanish you would be a little lost because he sings Spanish hits (and 3 new amazing songs) but it's worth the money just to see his performance. This shows the real Ricky. Spectacular!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ricky Martin Unplugged January 11, 2007
By eliz
Format:DVD
this intimate setting gives the viewer a chance to get to know Ricky without the distraction of a larger scale production. There is a nice balance of pace in the tracks selected and fresh arrangements of old favourites combined with exciting new material. If you enjoyed Ricky in the 90's you are sure to love this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful performance, best RM album so far December 17, 2006
Format:DVD
This dvd is by far the best Ricky Martin performance Ive seen from him. Gotta admit I had doubts about getting this but it proved I was wrong. This is RM on his natural persona and does not dissapoints for a second. I like more this new RM, more relaxed, comedown, kind of more earth grounded. The dvd contains new versions of his old hits (thanks God we dont have his "vida loca" or shake your botty here) and 3 brand new songs. Tu recuerdo, Pegate and Con tu nombre are some of his finest work so far. Id definately recommend any fan of this guy to get this record asap.You wont regret it...and NO, you do NOT need to know Spanish to feel this album.Ricky Martin music is just getting better, something I never thought Id say someday, keep it up man. Highly recommended, one of the best mtv unpluggeds so far.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ricky's BACK! November 11, 2006
Format:DVD
He gives you just enough of his famous moves to make you want for more, but it is his voice that will make you change your mind about Ricky Martin. It is strong and powerful. To heck if it is in Spanish! Good songs are good songs, and Ricky is at his best when singing Spanish songs. This is one of the best MTV Unplugged!

5.0 out of 5 stars beautiful music
Probably the best DVD Ricky Martin has recorded to date. Beautiful music, great audience, and the whole stage setup, - and the best versions of some songs.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ricky's Unplugged
Being a fan of Ricky Martin, I would've thought this would've been longer with a lot more songs despite the fact it's in Spanish.

But overall, it's still ok.
