Some really great stuff here...
on March 27, 2014
First off, I'm a 63 year old DJ, and I'm not a prude. I own seven of Enrique's previous albums. I bought the Deluxe version of "Sex and Love". But I have to ask myself why someone with so much talent and so much to offer the world, has to resort to the vulgarities so often associated with pop music these days? That's why I gave it four stars. Unnecessary innuendo, and questionable lyrics.
Mr. Iglesias should consider that not all his listeners are the youth of the world, looking for titillation. I won't go as far as someone else did, and refer to Enrique as a pervert...but more likely, he's the victim of his handlers, that have convinced him it is necessary to slip into this technique, to remain popular.
Now...on the other hand, I do feel that it is a pretty darn good album, with several danceable songs on it. This may sound contrary to my earlier statement, but most of my audience is over fifty...and I doubt they will be listening to the lyrics. They will enjoy the beat and the sound. They will dance to it.
In my opinion, the best cut is the duet with Marco Antonio Solis...without a doubt, my favorite Latin artist...bar none. I especially enjoyed the Bachata version of "El Perdedor". I would like to see both Iglesias and Solis each make a Bachata album. Overall, "Sex and Love" is a good album, that could have been better...
