Music Review: Formula Vol 1 by Romeo Santos



Album: Formula Vol 1
Artist (Artista) : Romeo Santos
Release Date (Fecha de Lanzamiento) : November 8, 2011

We all know how obsessed I am with this guy. After all, he's the man that I plan to marry one day. Ok, I'll stop with the creepy devotion. Anyway, I wanted to share how awesome this album is. Romeo Santos is the lead singer of Latin supergroup Aventura. This is Romeo's first solo album, and he definitely nailed it. As always the lyrics are on point and he experiments with different music genres. My personal favorites from this album are "You", "La Bella y La Bestia" and "Mi Santa". A couple of the songs are really personal, where he addresses his insecurities and how sometimes fame isn't always all that pretty.

Aventura is missed in this album. I miss Lenny's production, his beats were always crazy-creative. Formula Vol 1 doesn't have any melodies that had me saying "Wow" but I was blown away with the lyrics. Guess we can't have everything.

For the most part, the album is great. There is one semi-crappy song ("All Aboard"), it was full of corny entendres and I really don't like hearing Romeo singing in English. It just sounds odd to me. I also found the intro a little corny, but that's because I don't find George Lopez funny at all. But skip those and you'll enjoy the album immsensely. And Romeo makes up for it by having Antony Santos, Luis Vargas AND Raulin Rodriguez all in ONE song ("Debate de 4"). He is truly the man for that.


 Todos sabemos lo mucho que estoy obsesionado con este tipo. Después de todo, él es el hombre con quien me voy a casar algún día. Ok, voy a dejar con la devociónes peluznante. De todos modos, quería compartir lo maravilloso que es este álbum. Esta es el primer álbum en solitario de Romeo (cantador del grupo Aventura) y él definitivamente lo logró. Como siempre, las letras están en punto y experimenta con diferentes géneros musicales. Mis favoritas canciones de este álbum son "You", "La Bella y La Bestia" y "Mi Santa". Un par de las canciones son muy personales, donde se dirige a sus inseguridades y cómo a veces con la fama, todo no es como parece ser.

Aventura hiso falta en este álbum. Echo de menos la producción de Lenny, sus ritmos son siempre una locura creativa. Fórmula Vol. 1 no tiene ninguna melodía que me había dicho "Wow", pero me quedé impresionado con la letra. Supongo que no se puede tener todo.

En su mayor parte, el álbum es genial. Hay una cancion que es so-so ("All Aboard"), ya que estaba lleno de sentidos cursi y yo realmente no me gusta oír cantar Romeo enInglés. Suena extraño para mí. También encontré la intro un poco cursi, pero eso es porqueno encuentro George Lopez divertido. Pero si ignoras esas par de canciones, vas a adorar el resto del disco. Y Romeo lo compensa por tener Antony Santos,Luis Vargas y Raulin Rodriguez todo en UNA canción ("Debate de 4"). El es verdaderamente el rey para poder lograr eso.

Rating (Clasificacion): 3/4
