"Bachatas Forever" by Jose' Alfonso brings you the hot latin sound of Bachata, which features vocals, guitar, bass, bongo and guira. This album is quite successful in giving you a modern sound without compromising the traditional sound. The music has a strong latin beat to it. The arrangements are unique and the vocal performances from Mr. Garcia (a former Dominican radio personality) are impressive as he uses his strong voice very effectively for this latin genre. Highlights are "Lloro Porque La Quiero," with a very unique arrangement and intimate vocals. "Vibora Mala" throws a drum machine into the mix and has a great "Island" feel. There is an English version of this one as well. "Perdon" features some great guitar work. If you like strong latin male vocalists and latin music, you will enjoy this one.
