Puerto Rican singer Janina is the first from a fresh crop of Latin reality TV talent-show winners to release an album. With that background, it's not surprising that she sings commercial, catchy pop that takes little time getting to the chorus. What is surprising is how good she sounds doing it. "Todo de Mí" leans more toward rock/pop than classic balladry, its arrangements devoid of strings in favor of guitars. Even though the lyrics are eminently romantic, the overall sound is youthful. But the depth and emotional reach of Janina's voice isn't at all girly (witness the range of the gospel-infused "Ya No Volverás"). This is an album that will outlast the show (and trends) that spawned it.—LC
