Guide Review - Music Review: Anais - Asi Soy Yo
The CD contains 10 original tracks, including "Lo Que Son Las Cosas", a ballad made famous by Ednita Nazario and the single that has sizzled on Billboard's Hot Latin Tracks. Bonus tracks include four more versions: a salsa and techno version, a reggaeton version with Voltio and Duraguense style with Alacranes Musical. The infectious, up-beat "Atrapada" has two version, the second a remix with hip-hop artist Bimbo (which I like better). "Estoy Con El Y Pienso En Ti" is another ballad with both a reggaeton and salsa version in bonus tracks.
Anais has a strong, gutsy voice, a little more impressive in the reggaeton/salsa numbers than in the ballads. But where she really shines is in the DVD. With a strong presence, sexy moves and dynamic vocals, the total package is pretty compelling. Its easy to see why the audience declared her the winner.
I noticed that the sound quality was a little better on the DVD than on the CD. Coupled with her great visuals, spend the extra $ and get the dual-disc version.
