Latin Lover

An intoxicating package of drums, music and vocals.

Anyone with a good sense of rhythm and a feel for beats will enjoy this collection of sizzling, hot and swaying tracks.

For the first time, it becomes hard to pick out particular singles and say they're better than the rest - the album is that good. All the tracks are tuneful and use a peppering of intoxicating drums, music and vocals to create complete little packages that satisfy over and over again.

My favourites were "Mamacita" and "Corazon Partio", but this is purely a personal choice. Listeners might enjoy any of the thirteen songs, for no reason at all, other than their compelling beats, cultivated singing and distinctly Latin essence.
