In his first album with Sony Discos—after recording for Fonovisa—Spaniard Jordi comes across as a seasoned popster, delivering romantic ballads and upbeat dance numbers with equal ease. Although the more playful Jordi (the dance-inflected "Yo Tengo Una Amiga," "Paraíso") is more fun than the more mature romantic one ("Tu No Sospechas"), he has the voice to carry off both styles with aplomb and conviction. Tu No Sospechas isn't adventuresome; this is solid, radio-friendly pop, ranging from the Spanish guitars and palmas in "Bésame" to the sweeping "Ya No Te Conozco." But it's well-executed, culling from a fine repertoire of song and imparting a certain light-heartedness to the tracks that manages to strike a good balance with the more serious lyric content ("Algo Para Recordar," with its upbeat rhythm and ending gospel chorus). Good balladeers are always in demand, and Jordi has the voice and the style to reach an audience.—LC
