On their sophomore effort, Spanish duo Andy & Lucas look to repeat their successful debut with a similar formula: A radio-friendly mix of flamenco and pop that is more predictable than the more sophisticated sounds of Alejandro Sanz but nevertheless maintains a true flamenco spirit in the vocals and the guitars. Lucas wrote most of the tracks, which are full of hooks and catchy melodies; radio appeal has been a key ingredient in this group's success, and it is deserved. These are good songs, with colloquial, charming lyrics. Some may prefer the rougher edges and stronger flamenco vibes of "Sabe Que la Engaña" or the infectiousness of "Dime Que Me Quieres" to the more suave arrangements in "Por Ella." Regardless, this is an album of nonstop hits.—LC
