5.0 out of 5 stars Who's Shaking Now? December 1, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Ricky Martin proves himself an extremely versatile artist via the diversity of in his 2nd English album. Gallantly riding the Latino hype, Ricky shows us the sensuously delicious side of Latino music.
1. She Bangs: already a huge hit, you gotta get up and dance! 2. Saint Tropez: seductive melody that sweeps you off your feet 3. Come to me: Ricky's silky voice brings a rare finess 4. Loaded: you can really rock till you drop with this one 5. Nobody wants to be lonely: irresitible slow songs (like Casi un Bolero) truly accentuates Ricky's wistful side 6. Amor: Latina at her best, the orchestration is suave 7. Jezabel: best example of Ricky's dangerous woman theory, hypnotizing and elusive 8. The touch: one of the weaker tracks, BSB romantic enough 9. One night man: the Arabic chants add such a zing to the album, demonstrates Ricky's extraordinary range 10.She bangs (spanish): knowledge of Spanish really helps 11.Are you in it for love: I think we are in it for the witty metaphores 12.Ven a mi: spanish version of Come to Me 13.If you ever saw her: exciting but weak 14.Dame mas: spanish version of Loaded 15.Cambia la piel: this song's got everything, from authentic Latino beat to salsa rhythm

4.0 out of 5 stars It grows on you December 19, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I'm a huge fan of Ricky Martin and have seen him twice now in concert. His is the kind of fun, hot, get-up-and-move music that's been missing (in my opinion) in recent years. His English debut, Ricky Martin, has been played so often in my stereo that it's starting to melt under its own primal heat.
That said, I didn't enjoy Sound Loaded as much as I'd hoped. When I first bought it, I hated it; the songs are too forced, the lyrics meaningless, and Ricky---who was flying here there and everywhere for concerts while recording the album---sounded tired and a little voice-strained.
But I kept playing it. And soon, I was singing along with it. And dancing to it. And having a good time doing all of the above. This is an album that grows on you, particularly so once you let go of what you think it should be and play it for what it is---a lot of fun. It's not serious art; it's about shaking your...well, you know. Songs like "She Bangs" and "Loaded" are standouts, as are "One Night Man" and "The Touch." One of my favorites is "Are You in it for Love."
The problems that struck me on the first listen are still there, but over time, it starts to work. If you're a die-hard fan, definitely pick up Sound Loaded. If you're new to Ricky, though, I recommend starting with his English-language debut. Better yet, save your money for his next tour---He puts on a fabulous show.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the REAL Thing! November 16, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
SOUND LOADED has to be one of Ricky Martin's best albums. Next to his '98 smash VUELVE, this has to be the best. It is a tremendous improvement over his last self-titled album. Songs like "Saint Tropez" "Come to Me" and "Nobody Wants to be Lonely" are some of the best ballads he has ever made, while songs like "She Bangs" "Loaded" "Amor" and "Cambia la Piel" just fill you with energy and emotion. SOUND LOADED is all in all, an incredible album.
I recommend this album to anybody. Whether your a Ricky Martin fan or not, you'll still love this album. And if you want an album that is just as great as this one if not better, I suggest you buy Ricky's 1998 album VUELVE. It is a truly amazing album and you will love it even if you don't speak Spanish.

5.0 out of 5 stars Noisy, sassy and sexy! All hail King Ricky! November 11, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This sophomore English effort by the Latin Prince of Pop very much befits its title. It's sound-loaded alright. At times a bit too noisy but hey, this is Latin music. It's supposed to be noisy. And brassy. And full of sex, sex, sex. Wake up, all you prudes. It's the new millenium already and this is Ricky Martin back to heighten your pleasure. So listen up!
At first listen, one might be inclined to think that this is not the Ricky one thought one knew. Well, this is perhaps partly due to a signicficant reduction in Robi Rosa's contribution. While Robi is still credited in the album's production, he only pens five of the baker's dozen different songs (spanish versions notwithstanding) including the ubiquitious 'She Bangs'. Ah yes. The sexy first single. Well, it's already all over radio and if you haven't heard it yet, well, where are you? The South Pole? By the way, what does she bang anyway?
So, this has a decidedly more Latin feel to it. Think of it as a redemption album from Ricky. If you (longtime) fans of Ricky were less than excited about his debut English album, well, here's the album that he should have released first. It definitely is a more focused work, with more samba, salsa and sass.
'Ricky Martin', while it was a good 'first effort', tried to cover too many bases in its effort to rope in as many demographics as possible. Hence it actually sounded more like a musical equivalent of a salad - everything in one without being anything in particular. Well, this time around, Ricky throws caution to the wind as he introduces us gringos to the more wilder side of Latin music especially in Saint Tropez, Jezabel and Amor (whose arrangement sounds uncannily like Santana's 'Smooth'). Oh, and look for the Arabian-infused 'One Night Man'.

Well, I gave this CD its first spin after a two year absence of ANY Ricky Martin music in my life. After his 1999 self-title CD, I pretty much went head over heals for Ricky. Read more

I am a fan of Ricky but not this album. I prefer him singing spanish instead of English. The only good part about the album is the salsa sounds.
