"Wepa! " Tres hurras por fulano Elvis Crespo! I must say I disagree with Alex, Elvis Crespo is a great merengue composer and performer, and I think he is the best thing to happen to merengue since............, well there you go. Congratulaciones on the Grammy Elvis, keep up the good, work.

This fabulous merengue CD is a non-stop exhilarating delight...if you don't feel the irresistible urge to get up and dance, check your pulse. You don't even have to know how to merengue, this CD will teach you how ! The smash hit title track and "Luna Llena" are my favorites, but the entire CD is excellent...there are no "fillers" here. Crespo shows his writing talent here with "Suavemente" and "Tu Sonrisa" and his infectious, energetic voice is perfect for this type of music. The man has soul...and don't forget to read the "agradecimientos" after amazon.com has rushed this CD to your door, they're lovely.

I first saw Elvis Grespo on Telemundo (a spanish, broadcast TV station)and was so taken with the song, Suavemente and Elvis' manner that I wanted more of his music right away. He has such positive energy and such a rapport with the audience, that is difficult to ignore. Every bit of that same energy comes through on this album. There isn't a single track that I don't like and there are many that I like a lot. Every time I play it, I end up turning it up loud and dancing the whole time. Not only is Elvis great, but the backup singers are wonderful as well. It almost gives me chills sometimes to hear that group of male voices singing with him. The general musical style is definatly modern or pop, but with much more of a traditional rhythm or flair than say Ricky Martin or Enrique' Iglesias. Memorable tracks are : Luna Llena, Princesita, Tu Sonrisa, and (ofcourse) Suavemente. And last, but not least, Elvis Grespo is such a cutie that how could you help but like him? One tiny complaint: As a person who is learning Spanish by studying on my own, I was very disappointed to find that there are no lyics in the sleeve. Most Latin music I buy does. But, you can't have everything.

Elvis Crespo was popular when he was with Grupo Mania, and his first solo CD has been a total smash. He has kept his signatures in both music and lyrics (the ever-present "pequeña, echate pa' 'ca"). Even without signatures, his throaty, sexy voice is too distinctive to mistake.
After the fabulous title cut, my favorites are Luna Llena and Princesita, followed by Tu Sonrisa. However, there isn't a bad one on the disc; the pace is a bit slower than many merengues, and it's a pleasure to dance from the first song to the last.
My only negative comment refers to the Spanglish version of Suavemente found on the single CD... it is unfortunate that a professional song translator wasn't consulted for this effort. The translation is literal, with no attempt made to match words having the appropriate number of syllables to the musical phrasing, e.g. "laaabios" is replaced only with "liiiiiips." It sullies a terrific song.

I find it hard to believe that amazon.com actually compared Elvis Crespo to Juan Luis Guerra. Juan Luis Guerra's music is much more diverse, and the lyrics have so much more substance than the repetitive, shallow words of Elvis Crespo. While the music does indeed give you the urge to dance, none of the songs really stand out from his huge hit- they all sound similar. This album is a far cry from the music of other artists.

Elvis is happening!! This CD contains catchy and danceable tracks that anyone whom listens to dance music will truly enjoy this CD. My favorite tracks are: "Suavemente", "Luna Llena", "Princesita", and "Tu Sonrisa". If you have yet to experiment with Merengue music-then go out and purchase Elvis'"Suavemente"-you'll never put down the CD!

Elvis Crespo is certainly one of the premier lyricists of contemporary Latin popular music. "Softly. Kiss me. I want to feel your lips. Ooooo... Kiss me again." Well, maybe something gets lost in the translation. O.K., so he's no Ricardo Montaner, who cares? Merengue is rhythm music, lyrics are secondary, If you can dance to it and the melody is catchy you're half way there. EC does have a distinctive, if rather nasal tone to his singing, and looks a little different from your average merenguero which doesn't hurt with the ladies. On the other hand, his songs tend to be in the same key and tempo with the same rhythm (Oh, sorry, were talking about merengue, aren't we, now?) Pintame, amame, besame, abrazame, mimame, change the lyrics slightly while keeping the same tune and he could probably have a whole string of hits. Then again, all of Ricky Martin's music sounds alike to me so maybe the subtleties of EC's work are over my head.

Elvis Crespo's Suavemente CD is definitely a HIT! All the songs on this CD just make you want to get up and dance and move those hips. There is not one song on this particular CD that isn't good. The merengue beat will definitely pick up anyone's spirits and put you in the mood to DANCE! If you like to dance, Fito Olivares has some great Cumbias that will get the party started.
