I cannot begin to tell you how much I love Jon Secada. I always have and it's not only because he's such a talented song writer and has fantastic songs, but his voice is so beautiful. He's really got it all and is totally underrated.

This is a fantastic cd. It's a latin masterpiece. I love all the songs here but especially the fast dance track Ay Bueno and the slower ballads Una Senal, Cuando Despierto and the stunning Por Amor which is a duet with the great Gloria Estefan. That is a real treat.

To be perfectly honest, I don't have a single clue what the heck he is singing about, but it is so gorgeous to listen to (with all those ballads he's definately singing about love), and it's got something for everyone - dance numbers and the stunning ballads we fans have become used to hearing from this great crooner. I love it.

Amanecer is one of Secada's best recordings to date. It is a perfect mix of fiery-energetic dance songs and beautifully orchestrated ballads. The dance tracks (such as "Encierrame" and "Me Enfermas") are very percussive and rhythmic, utilizing a variety of Latin American percussion instruments. These numbers dare you to dance, and dance you will! The ballads (such as "Si No Fuera Por Ti" and "Cuando El Tiempo Nos Castiga") are so exquisitely composed that you will easily lose yourself in time and space.
Amanecer has a couple of surprises - two excellent duets with Gloria Estefan ("Por Amor") and Fernando Villalona ("Ay Bueno"). "Por Amor" is a timeless classic that speaks eloquently of an enduring love. "Ay Bueno" is a fun and happy merengue that does not fail to make you feel good.
And last but not least Mr. Secada never sounded better. It seems wine is not the only thing that gets better with time. Jon's vocal approach for each song is nothing short of brilliant. When you listen to his voice, you hear the obvious reality of a seasoned vocalist, which is the only kind that could have recorded each track live in the studio (a la Tony Bennett).
Amanecer contains enough rhythms and melodies to appeal to just about any fan of Latin music or music in general. Do your ears a favor, and treat them to this wonderful treasure.

This is Jon Secada's second all-Spanish album, that is, not a Spanish version of an English language album. Like Gloria Estefan, Jon has shown that by far his most interesting and quality work is when he explores his own roots and sings from his Latin heart.
The first Spanish album, Amor, is a true singer's album; that is, a showcase for Jon's immense singing talents. It is sophisticated and subtle, clearly revealing that he is a formally trained singer. The background instrumentation takes a back seat to the artist.
In Amenecer, we have something very different. Each song is a highly prouduced ensemble effort, incorporating Latin folk influences and rhythms in a way Jon has not done before. Jon and the Emilio Estefan prouduction have actually succeded in creating a rather different kind of sound, quite an achievment when you think about it, in this age where so much pop music sounds the same.
There are basically two types of songs. One is a highly rhythmic, energetic, very uptempo piece, with a very funky and complex groove. There are some great instrumental touches, and interesting, almost African sounding backup vocals. These songs are more of an ensemble effort, as opposed to a spotlight for Jon's voice, per se.
The slow ballads most certainly, are however, , and Jon's singing is very beautiful, even if it not quite as extraordinary as in Amor. Si no Fuera por Ti is really nice, with a lovely introduction that really engages me. Even prettier is "A Sign."
A very nice bonus is the DVD included. It includes a video of Si No Fuera Por Ti, and an interview discussion (you can read English subtitles) of the album, with Jon, Emilio and Gloria.

Jon secada's music never disappoints me. This guy has an incredible talent, and knows what love is all about. I know I'm 10 years late of listening to this album for the first time but its never too late to discover old but new music. I loved every single song in the album. The ones I liked the most will have to be, Encierrame, Una Senal, Si No Fuera por Ti, Por Amor, Ay Bueno and Cuando El Tiempo Castiga. I love how he collaborated with Fernandito Villalona they sounded perfect together. Jon should sing merenge more, it sounded good and also Ranchera since he sang the ranchera version of Si no fuera por ti. I recommend this album to every one, its a perfect album to listen on family gatherings, a resort, or if you're home alone pop the CD in and have some wine and listen to it especially on a cold rainy night. You won't regret it. Worth every penny.
