Up-tempo club jams like "Break Your Heart," "Dynamite," and "I Can Be" sport melodies sturdy enough to support all the digital detailing, and power ballads such as "I'll Never Love Again" and "Falling in Love" do the gathering-steam thing as efficiently as more traditionally presented songs by Diane Warren or Kara DioGuardi.
The only song of equal caliber to [''Break Your Heart"] on his Stateside debut is the Ke$ha-assisted sexting number ''Dirty Picture.'' The rest of the tracks are forgettable and include a cut for throwing hands in the air (''Dynamite'') and one awkwardly placed effort to uplift (''I Can Be'').
Mar 25, 2012Cruz's first effort falls flat when it comes to make him an artist to notice. It is a very impersonal album, created to achieve temporal success single-wise ("Break Your Heart", "Dynamite), but it is incapable of maintaining its mainstream appeal during the whole record., becoming just a boring and unattractive list of simple tracks.
