If you want the quick synopsis, skip to the end of this review. Otherwise, here's the LONG story! One day, in March 2005, I hit the wrong number on my stereo remote and instead of winding up on the "oldies" channel, I landed on the Latin Pop channel where I was mesmerized by La Fuerza Del Destino. Of course, I had NO IDEA who this Fey woman was, being as I didn't speak Spanish! I HAD been a Shakira fan since Laundry Service, even her Spanish albums, but I'd never looked any deeper into Latin music. At any rate, I really wanted to hear the song again SO I started listening to the Latin Pop channel just to hear Fey every 4 hours 45 minutes! Of course, in the meantime, I exposed myself to LOTS of other Latin musicians and music and REALLY ENJOYED IT. Not the depressing, angst filled stuff being cranked out lately by English speaking musicians! THAT'S why I'd been splitting time between 1955-70 Pop and the 80's music of my college days.
Fey is a girl that has a very pretty voice, for my any song that sings me it finds magic because has a style and a form that alone she possesses, the third sail the ballad Me Cuesta Tanto Olvidarte it is a clear example, also to each song it put a touch very to the fey, which makes the Cd A lot but Amusing.
Somehow, this release bypassed me. I didn't even know it existed until very recently, when I heard the title track on the radio. Like others who wrote reviews, I question this tribute album at this stage of Fey's career. Monica Naranjo's decline coincided with her tribute album, Minaje, to the Italian singer Mina. She never really reprised the success from her first two albums. I think that Fey is a different story, in that she kind of sabotaged herself. Her first album was a cutesy-pie affair, that nonetheless generated a killer #1 hit, Media Naranja. Her next release, Tierna La Noche, was nothing short of pure gold, the gold standard for Spanish-language pop, in my opinion. Unfortunately, El Color De Los Suenos was a rather-weak follow up, which put a damper on her success. Then, there were the rabid accusations about her lying about her age. Like some other fans, I did like Vertigo, at least the first seven or so tracks. But, I think Fey wanted to emulate Madonna's Ray...
