There will likely be lots of scoffing at Marc Anthony's interpretation--both on disc and onscreen--of late salsa singer Hector Lavoe. But let's not forget that Anthony is a salsa superstar in his own right. He has anchored some of the genre's most thrilling moments and has taken salsa to audiences not normally exposed to the sweltering sound. The El Cantante soundtrack is a solid effort, notable for Anthony's dedication to recreating Lavoe's distinct delivery and phrasing. He puts aside his own emotive stylings for a more subdued performance on several tracks, including the celebratory "Mi Gente" and the mournful "Escandalo." Anthony is virtually unrecognizable during "Che Che Cole," "Quitate," and the standout "Que Lio," which makes the project all the more intriguing. Jennifer Lopez, Anthony's wife in real life and onscreen in El Cantante, croons pensive closing ballad "Toma de Mi." Even without the film, the soundtrack stands as an earnest homage to a tragic icon. --Joey Guerra

People en Español
He aquí la música que el salsero boricua grabó para acompañar su actuación en la película biográfica sobre el cantante puertorriqueño Héctor Lavoe. Lo interesante es que Marc Anthony hizo mucho más que grabar las canciones de Lavoe con su estilo propio. El esposo de Jennifer López frasea exactamente igual que el legendario salsero en este álbum, lo cual es todo un logro, ya que fue ese fraseo tan especial el que hizo a Lavoe un ídolo. Además el sonido del disco es impecable, si le gusta la salsa este es un disco que no se puede perder. --Ernesto Sánchez (People en Español People en Español)

I'm tired of bad-sport Hector Lavoe fans who cannot accept that anyone can even come close to challenging him.

Hector Lavoe was a master sonero, and he conveyed a sense of humor in his singing that was very unique. Marc Anthony can't touch him in these departments. However, Hector sometimes had an unpleasant nasal quality to his voice, and not much power.

Marc Anthony has a beautiful singing voice. He sings with power and intensity, but can also handle the vocal acrobatics.

The musicians on this CD are excellent, and the arrangements are hot!!! The more you listen to this CD, the more fun it is!

This should be just a starter for Hector Lavoe appreciation. Hector had a prolific career with LOTS of great material.

When I heard this album, I expected for Marc Anthony to adapt to Hector Lavoe's style to interpret the songs, not just imitate his voice (UJUM!, Van Lester)!!! and anyone else that can a buck only as a Hector Lavoe imitator or Hector Lavoe "covers" orquestras. And I think Marc Anthony accomplished that without using completely his vocal range. Remember, Hector Lavoe was not known for that, but more the way he spills his emotions and interacts with his public with his phrases on stage. The songs chosen are some of the obvious popular tunes, some that are not really the most popular tunes from his catalog. I guess that might depend where you lived in that era, PR, NYC, South America, the favorites vary slightly by market or area. I have not seen the movie yet, but I imagine the reason these songs were chosen for this sountrack is because it fit the best with the "movie's standpoint" of Hector Lavoe's live. You can't compare salsa quality from the Fania era, that is something that is locked and treasured, but I think for 2007 this album is done musically very good. It's a well done album with a great musical quality in today's standards, (stop comparing with the Fania era, that was the sacred time golden age of salsa and is never coming back). I recommend highly this album. The main reason I gave this album four stars is the last song, by Jennifer Lopez, it is very out of place from the other songs

I love this CD. Though I can speak very little Spanish I know most of the songs by heart. My teenage daughter, who would swear she knows nothing about salsa, also sing her favorites by heart in the car. Right now our favorites are 'Che che cole' and 'Quitate tu...' last year it was 'Mi gente'. I have no idea about the movie, but the CD and Marc Anthony's renditions are beautiful!

Mark Antony's voice on this CD was so heart-wrenching.....I love to hear it. I don't actually listen to music sung in other languages often but this particular soundtrack was done so well I just had to purchase it. I especially loved the title track. Great job.

I don't see how the movie was mediocre to some, but I really enjoyed it. Perhaps becaue it was J.Lo and Marc, but I thought they perfomed well. Anywho, I like the cd because Marc brought life into Lavoe's music. I put in on when Im cleaning or in a good mood. Great CD and movie!

My title says it all. The songs are based on the music in the movie. Marc Anthony is signing Hector Lavoe's songs. Marc Anthony is a legend in his own right so the songs are on point. The final song is sung by Jennifer Lopez - I like her acting skills but can pass when it comes to her singing - my opinion.

Recommend? Of course.
