In a career that spans more than 25 albums, Lissette had, until now, never released a live album. Lissette en Vivo! seeks to remedy this by including two full-length CDs that contain three greatest-hits medleys. The wealth of material is admirable, as is Lissette's consistently strong voice and her range of emotions. En Vivo! also serves as a sort of musical map of Latin pop from the '70s to the '90s, with material that ranges from corny to incisive. The unevenness has to do with trying to fit such an extensive, productive career in one package. Lissette fans will consider this to be an almost definitive collection, but neophytes might be overwhelmed.—LC
