EDITORS’ NOTES

Flamenco in its purest form tends to disdain pop music, but Alejandro Sanz figures out a way to make the genres coexist on this 1997 album. These songs are passionate and permeated with longing, and they swell with the emotive power of pop—but it’s that flamenco duende that keeps us on the edge of our seats. Sanz’s voice is a raspy tear in the fabric of the universe, and a song like the masterful “Corazon Partio” stitches it back together again with flamenco guitar arpeggios.
