AllMusic Review by

ATADA is sensual merengue to slither to after dark--Gisselle struts her stuff Charo-style but sings sweetly like a natural siren. Frenetic congas and a near-manic chorus spasmodically blurt out the lyrics on the fast and furious "Tocame." Hearts are sure to race to a similar pace on the peppy "Me Decidi." The vocal prowess so amply demonstrated on these conga-dominated tracks softens on the balada pop version of the title song track. Here, Gisselle shifts into a more experimental mode and introduces nothing less than a sexy electric guitar solo a la Prince. Her breathy vocals are rife with passion, and when combined with the solo, form a sizzling, but sincere finale. Gisselle is one leading lady who sings always from the core of a passionate and practiced Latin heart.
