I have been a long time fan of Enrique Iglesias. Ever since 2001 when Escape came out I knew I would be a huge fan. I just got such a great high listening to that music. Naturally I went out and bought his previous english album, and all the ones after that.
I Was excited when I heard news of a Greatest Hits Album. Having heard all his Studio albums in full I can say i'm also a bit dissapointed, since there were so many hidden gems that didn't even become singles,songs like "Roamer", "Love 4 Fun", "If The World Crashes Down", "Sad Eyes", "Your My #1" or "Ring My Bells" (Don't Worry. I'm not crazy, Enrique's Hardcore fans will know what i'm talking about).
But as for the casual fan This compilation is all you'll ever need, since it has all the singles on it from Enrique's MTV hey day (Escape Era) and then some....They're all here from the signature hits "Hero", "Bailamos", "Be With You", "Escape", "Do You Know"...to the other hit singles "Love To See You Cry", "Rhythm Divine", "Addicted" ect.
The reason I feel this could have been better is if "Ring My Bells" had been on this collection (IT'S THE SONG FROM THE TRUE STAR COMMERCIAL, SO CHECK IT OUT IF YOU CAN), but then again it wasn't a single, so Why would it be on this album? This collection appears to be just for the casual listeners, as they might not own any of his Studio Albums. As I said if you're a casual listener of Enrique, this is the only CD You need to own, still it would have been nice if Interscope had put some more hits on here. There's room for more, since this CD is pretty short for a Greatest Hits clocking in at only 66 Minutes, but still it's a decent summary of Enrique's hits from the last Decade, and anyone more than a casual listener will probably own his albums anway, and might just buy this for the 2 New tracks. The new single "Away" is great, and "Takin' Back my Love" with Ciara is catchy, once you give it a listen or two.
Fans of this album would also do well to pick up "95/08" (his Spanish Language Greatest Hits Album) if you're just getting into Enrique, This is the Album to Start off with.
