Picks and Pans Review: Crazy

Julio Iglesias

After 71 amorous albums, Iglesias has just about run out of moves. Aside from smartly understated vocals on "I Keep Telling Myself" and Beethoven's "Song of Joy," the Spanish crooner's latest offers little to grease the wheels of romance. A duet with Dolly Parton on "When You Tell Me That You Love Me" merely out-sweetens a 1991 version by Diana Ross, taking it to its all-time saccharine high. A cover of "Oye Como Va" would have provided a nice jolt were it not so reverential to Santana's 1971 hit. And the world certainly doesn't need his bel canto vibrato wimpily caressing "Fragile" when it has Sting's tear-jerking original. Perhaps Iglesias should take a cue from the title track and get a little crazier next time. (Columbia)
