Veteran Puerto Rican vocalist Ednita Nazario adds a stirring, soulful album to her extensive catalog with El Corazón Decide, another collection of romantic ballads. What is so striking about Nazario's recording -- and her career -- is how stubbornly she has stuck to the ballad as her preferred method of expression, no matter the changes in Latin pop and the music industry in general. It is refreshing, to say the very least. This is because Nazario continually digs deeper into the form with nuance, uncovering all of the subtleties beneath the surface. This is evidenced elegantly by the set's first single, "La Más Fuerte."
