La Fuerza del Destino

by: Fey

A continuation of her sparse, new, electronically driven direction, La Fuerza del Destino continues Fey's sonic journey toward the euro, separating her a little more from her Mexicano countrymen with every spacy, dark dance track. Though there are remembrances of her sugar-pop heritage, her first release with EMI International is a touch more mature than previous output; the production style seems to be seeking deeper waters, and Fey herself still sounds quite a bit like a dangerously sexually precocious teenager. Ignacio Cano, of Spanish techno-pop group Mecano, penned all of the material on the record, with the exception of a cover of Mecano's 1981 hit "Hoy No Me Puedo Levantar," which he wrote along with his brother, José María Cano. With a veteran like Nacho Cano in her corner, it's no surprise that Fey reached Billboard's Top Ten on the Latin pop chart. Fey has lasted through the few-hits-wonder phase and demonstrated genuine staying power. ~ Evan C. Gutierrez
