by Luis Enrique


Losing his major-label contract hasn't slowed Luis Enrique, one of the young giants who made salsa romantica the hottest topic in Latin music during the late '80s and early '90s. Enrique and his 11-piece band shine on Ciclos, whether they're playing traditional salsa the way it sounded back in the '70s, integrating a few digital effects here and there ("Sonríe"), or floating the occasional Latin pop ballad ("Sombras Nada Más"). The combination of Enrique's assured delivery and a wide-ranging band makes Ciclos a success within 21st century salsa, and it became the first Luis Enrique album to reach the general Billboard album charts (and his highest scoring on both the tropical and Latin charts). [A 2010 edition of Ciclos included only a CD and not a bonus DVD featured with previous packages which included recording footage of all the songs on the CD portion.]
