After a somewhat disapointing album with 1996's DESTINY, Gloria Estefan returned in 1998 with a new energy on this album GLORIA! The album weighs heavily on disco influences, giving the album a fresh vibe overall. The first single "Heaven's What I Feel" is the perfect way to open this album, very upbeat and inspiring, definite standout track. "Don't Stop" starts out like a fresh breeze then kicks into gear! In fact on GLORIA! there is hardly any ballads to be found, its just a fun album. "Oye" weighs heavily on spanish influences, creating a great salsa type track. "Real Woman" is a fun song with great vocals. One of my favorites is "Feelin'", great old school vibe on this one, very discoish, really feel good song. "Don't Release Me" features Wyclef Jean, it had to grow on me but its not bad, not a favorite though. "Don't Let This Moment End" is a great dance song, shame it didn't do as good as it should have, its a great piece of dance material. "Touched By An Angel", "Lucky Girl" and "I Just Wanna Be Happy" are all great as well. "Cuba Libre" pays homage to her heritage and where she's from. As a bonus, there are 5 alternate versions, mostly remixes. Overall GLORIA! is a great album full of pep and energy, and fun to listen to, one of her more interesting albums to listen to.
