Jowell y Randy el Momento review

In the past, I've only been a part-time fan of Jowell y Randy. Aside from their singles like "Fuera de Planeta" or "Juegues Mas", I've mostly liked them as guest features on songs by other artists. Quitarte To (Tego Calderon), Ponmela (Voltio), Te Siento (Wisin y Yandel), Perversa (Trebol Clan), Salgo Pa La Calle (Daddy Yankee).  I wasn't impressed by their first group album, or the Casa de Leones CD, but the duo is terrific with this album.

The beats make El Momento a step above most recent reggaeton albums, the production is hot.   Most of the beats are upbeat electronic tracks perfect for radio, like "Mi Dama de Colombia" and their single "Loco." They even throw in a laid-back reggae beat with their Cultura Profetica collabo "Solo Por Ti."

While I like a bit of Romantikeo, I have to have my hardcore dembow and perreo music. And that's exactly what you get with "Hacerlo Asi" con Guelo Starr, "Dile a El", and "Un Booty Nuevo." My favorite track on the album is "No Fue Una Noche Normal", which really shows how much the duo have improved their flow over the years.

There are 15 tracks on the album, guest spots include De La Ghetto, Cosculluela, Franco El Gorila, Tico El Imigrante, Wisin & Yandel, Javiah, Gadiel, Cultura Profetica, and Guelo Star. If I had any complaints about the album, it's only that I thought they could have used the auto-tune effects less for the singing.

I'm really surprised that El Momento was this hot. Jowell y Randy have improved their flow, and have some of the hottest beats I've heard in years. They keep it mixed with Romantikeo pa las mujeres, y Underground pa los fellas to bump in their ride.
