It doesn't have as much soul as the other two albums but at least it doesn't have too many drum machine parts either. Her voice is still great and it doesn't go for the high notes as much. The disc contains nine songs: 6 salsa songs, 2 remakes of popular songs by Cuban singer La Lupe(which are the two best songs on the disc), and a ballad version of the title track. The salsa songs (arrangements) sound weak and watered down, even the background vocals get annoying; Johnny Rivera, Huey Dunbar, and George Lamond were three of the backgound vocalists in the other albums and that formula shouldn't of changed. But she is still the best female salsa singer to date.

I love the new India cd. With her powerful voice and great lyrics. She seems to have a more mature outlook and with her hint of bolero in their it was great. India es la princesa de salsa. Keep making the hits India

The "Princess of Salsa" returns with her best work to date. All songs on the album were wonderful, but I was very happy to hear her cover two classics La Lupe, the legendary Cuban chanteuse that captivated Latin music in the 1950's and 1960s. Thos two songs, "Que Te Pedi," and "Si Vuelves Tu," are excellent covers and India does justice in honoring Lupe's vocal style. The title track "Sola," has already become a popular club track in New York and Miami, and the salsa and ballad versions are wonderful to hear. Truly India is a diva! With the recent rise of Latin music in the United States, India (who has done songs in English, especially a song for the "Last Days of Disco" soundtrack) will become a star in her own manner. Buy this awesome album!

Although I don't like 2 of the songs included, this is her best cd. Hope she decides to record a complete cd as tribute to the music that Maestro Tito Puente and the late La Lupe recorded in the sixties (with Don Tito's Concert Orchestra).

India's Sola CD is her best work yet! India is truly the Queen of Salsa. India rocks any song with her beautiful, strong voice. I truly love her, and I am glad that she has chosen to share her talents with the world. Keep up the good work India!

I like this one. It is not as elementary as Dicen que yo soy. I like it a lot. It has some nice songs on it. I would recommend it. Me gusta este. No es tan basico ni sencillo como el viejo. Tiene unas canciones buenas. Se lo recomiendo.

"Sola" es una de las mejores producciones en la discografia de la salsera INDIA. Este trabajo fue producido por India, Isidro Infante y Ralph Mercado para RMM. Los mejores temas del disco lo son "Que te pedi", "Hielo", "Si vuelves tu", "Lo siento mi amor" y "Sola" (en sus dos versiones salsa y balada). India es La Princesa De La Salsa y una de las mejores. INDIA = MARAVILLOSA Y EXCELENTE! Tambien recomiendo otras excelentes producciones tales como "Pasional" de Jessica Cristina, "Dulce Veneno" de Carolina Lao, "Jerry Rivera" de Jerry Rivera, "La Reina Del Sabor" de Choco Orta, "Mi # de Suerte" de Aldo Matta & Llave Maestra, "Prohibido" de Saned Rivera y "La Dama De La Salsa" de Deddie Romero.

This is the singer's finest moment, a blend of salsa, dance pop and groove that is rare in today's gentrified macho-dominated Latin Music Category. Comparisons to Celia Cruz are appropriate, though India has stronger pipes, and can belt out a song with such power that it makes one gasp for breath. There are several tracks here that are missing from her recent "Best of" collection and deserve close listens including "Dejame Volver Contigo" where she pleads with a lost love, telling him he'll be anything he wants her to be - "reina, esclava, o mujer" (queen, slave, or woman.) Far from being politically inicorrect, however, India delivers the line in a forthright, passionate way that is both defiant and vulnerable at once. When "Sola" was released, Billboard Magazine called it the best salsa record of the year, and rightly so. But its more than just fine dance music for latinos and anglos alike....this is "best of breed" work and deserves a place on any music fan's collection. Few of her contemporaries - not Gloria Estefan, nor Pauhlina, could ever hope to hit the heights la India has hit here. Her greatest gift to date, "Sola" is destined to become one of your favorite discs, and only gets better with repeated spins. A CLASSIC OF EPIC PROPORTIONS.
