Salvador have made a name for themselves recording fiery Latin music with a Christian message, mostly in English but including an occasional Spanish-language song on their previous two releases. The eight-member Texas-based group has never recorded an all-Spanish album, until now. Con Poder isn't entirely a return to their Hispanic roots as the album's liner notes would have one believe -- Salvador never left their heritage behind. Instead, Salvador en español is much like the group's English incarnation: expert guitar work, pumped-up Latin rhythms, a full-fledged horn section, and the emotive vocals of lead singer Nic Gonzalez. All of it comes together to present a variety of Latin sounds, from salsa to Tejano to Ricky Martin-style Latin pop. Con Poder differs from its English-language predecessors in the glossier spin it puts on the typical Salvador sound: Where previous releases Into Motion and Salvador showcased a more forceful, rock edge, Con Poder is a bit more thoughtful. Still, there's plenty of punch, as shown on tracks like "Moñtana" and the stunning, get-on-your-feet-and-dance "Ante Tu Presencia." Salvador already has many fans this side of the border, but Con Poder is a nice introduction for the Latin world.
