AllMusic Review by

Puerto Rican singer/songwriter Kany García emerged as a swiftly ascendant pop star with her diverse 2007 debut, Cualquier Día. The Latin arm of Sony snapped her up and unleashed Boleto de Entrada two years later. García continues to evolve as a full-flavored artist on a record that mingles the melancholy majestic with the firestorms, the overarching pop with the breezy power rock. Despite her album's title, García is more a Spanish-language pop singer than a Latin popster. Although she does slip in a bolero or two, namely the comely "Esta Vida Tuya y Mía," most of the tracks on the 2009 album reveal an artist weaned on the American pop of the 1990s from alternative to soul, as she throws in everything from Indigo Girls-style folk ballads ("Hasta Dónde") to Strokes-ish barroom indie rock ("Eres Tú") to new country balladry ("12 de Noviembre") to Guy-level R&B seduction pieces ("Cuando Tú No Estás"). It's an alluring and unpredictable, if heavily airbrushed, breakout.
