About the Album

On Iconos, his second album of cover material in a row, Marc Anthony revives a small selection of ballads by the likes of Jose Jose, Juan Gabriel, and Jose Luis Perales. It's a finely crafted album tailor-made for Latin pop airplay, but it's a rather frustrating release for those fans who wish he'd finally get around to recording some original material. Not since Amar sin Mentiras (2004) has Anthony released an album of originals. That Latin pop crossover album, which like Iconos was produced by Julio Reyes, was followed by Valia la Pena (2004), a Sergio George-produced salsa makeover of Amar sin Mentiras, Sigo Siendo Yo (2006), a greatest-hits album with a couple new songs, and El Cantante (2007), a collection of Hector Lavoe covers that served as the soundtrack to the film of the same name. Like all of these follow-up releases, Iconos includes a bit of original material to tantalize fans who might otherwise wait for the day when Anthony gets around to recording a full-length album's worth of originals. In the case of Iconos, it closes with "A Quien Quiero Mentirle" and "Maldita Sea Mi Suerte," a couple originals written by Anthony in tandem with Reyes and Juan Pablo Vega. These two originals are in the same mold as the eight covers that precede them on this ten-song album, dramatically arranged with all-out orchestral accompaniment and showcasing the full range of Anthony's vocal ability. He gives it his all, and he's fairly impressive as a vocalist. His passion for this cover material is evident, particularly on the lead single "Y Como Es El." However, there's no doubt that Anthony is at his best as a salsero, which makes Iconos all the more frustrating for those fans who wish he'd get around making a proper album like in the old days. Granted, it's not fair to criticize him for being opportunist or for putting out cheap gap-fillers. Despite its brevity and reliance on cover material, Iconos is comprised of first-rate music, and El Cantante was downright superb. Anthony may not give fans what they want, but at least he gives them quality material. ~ Jason Birchmeier, Rovi

Rated 5 out of 5★ by This Cd is amazing! I recently became a marc anthony fan after watching el cantante and buying the cd! This cd has a great song selection, great arrangements, and these songs really show off marc anthonys talent and skill. i recommend this CD 100%! 07/26/2010
Rated 4 out of 5★ by Not his best... I've always loved Marc Anthony's music-it's beautiful, sensual, and good to listen to. When I saw his new CD, I was hoping for more of his salsa music-which I'm a big fan of. However, it was filled with soft, slow, sad ballards. All of which seemed to be about a girl leaving him for one reason or another. It begs the question, how many times and different ways can a person sing about a broken heart before it gets old? However, I'm still a fan of his music and still love him. I think the CD overall was good and enjoyable, though not as great as it could have been. I still miss the old, salsa Marc Anthony. That being said, I still recomend his CD. 09/03/2010
