    While Puerto Rican vocalist Victor Manuelle is yet another pretty face emerging from contemporary salsa's hit factory, he happens to possess a formidable tenor. At times sounding like progenitors like Ruben Blades and Gilberto Santa Rosa, his music trades on the anguished love-lost laments that pushed Marc Anthony to the top. His band, which draws from some of Puerto Rico's best sessionists and is anchored by the ubiquitous bassist Ruben Rodriguez, does a stellar job setting up Manuelle for the mid-song improvisational scatting that makes or breaks top soneros.
    On IRONIAS, Manuelle wades through a litany of heartbreak with a confident swing, not stretching beyond the capabilities of his mid-range. He frequently returns to a signature yelp that sounds like a cowboy kicking his horse into high gear. Tunes like "Se me Rompe el Alma" and "Que habria sido de mi" do a nice job of marrying pop-style arrangements with the funky piano jamming of hardcore salsa. "Mentiras" incorporates a Gypsy Kings-ish flamenco beat and evolves into a downright anthemic star turn.
