Tito Rojas achieved his greatest hour with this superior recording; Rojas' vocalizing becomes edgier, grittier, and uncompromisingly raw and these qualities are laid out with brutally swinging orchestrations. "Señora de Madrugada" is as danceable as salsa can get; "Quiero Ser Tuyo" (watch for Edgardo Morales' sassy timbales solo) and "También Nos Duele" (with Angel "Angie" Machado doing a trumpet solo) present Tito Rojas in a different dimension, a tough guy who can be romantic. "Enamoráme" and "He Chocado Con la Vida" are powerfully convincing, almost tailor-made to suit the vocalist's rabid style. Dazzlingly effective; no other Tito Rojas vehicle has worked to a better advantage for the singer. An absolute must-have.
