Hoy Es Domingo
Label: Sony Music Latin
On his eighth studio release -- and first in five years -- Argentine singer-songwriter Torres comes roaring back with a salsa tribute to the joys of lazy Sundays, featuring Ruben Blades. That song, “Hoy es Domingo,” sets the tone for the album which, as its title suggests, is full of life. Torres’ plain-spoken poetry is the foundation for this album of reflections on the deaths of his parents and the birth of his daughter. Among the highlights are “La Grieta,” an introspective yet upbeat ballad, and “La Vida Es un Vals,” which starts off spare and then soars into pop heaven.
