Hi Erick! I'll have the pleasure of reviewing this article. Initial comments coming soon.--Вик Ретлхед (talk) 23:49, 5 November 2013 (UTC)

Review
  • A question - Is this a double-album or two independent releases that are merged into one article? Looking at the track listing they appear to have the same set.
The latter as shown on the charts. Perhaps I should make a clarification on that part though. Any suggestions?
Maybe you should make a distinction in the intro. Let's say "Joyas Prestadas consists of eleven cover versions, with the first album being recorded in Latin pop, while the second was recorded in banda". "Both albums were produced by Enrique Martinez".
  • unlink Mexican-American in the lead
 Done
  • The second and third paragraph in the introduction read fine.
  • I suggest to include a non-free use rationale in the audio description of the song. Just to avoid any possible difficulties.
 Though it's not really necessary since this has never been brought up before (not even in the FACs I've been to). What is usually looked is the description of the sample to ensure it has a rationale sample. Still can't hurt to include it I suppose.
I agree, but suggested it because I had a similar experience not so long ago.
It seemed like the description wasn't expanded at the revision. Well, I don't know, but either way the non-free usage is there. :)

The charts, certification tables, credits and references list look solidly written and well organised. More comments on the prose to follow.--Вик Ретлхед (talk) 07:43, 7 November 2013 (UTC)

  • You can slightly re-arrange the second part of the sentence: "whom made them notable back in their original release" because it seems kind of confusing.
  • Is there a possibility to expand the "Background" section?

Otherwise than the above mentioned, the text as a whole is acceptable according to the GA criteria.--Вик Ретлхед (talk) 00:44, 8 November 2013 (UTC)

For the first issue, I just decided to remove it. I think it's a given that the original singers made it famous. For the second issue, I just took at the booklet and didn't have any information that wasn't already included in the article. For some reason, background sections are my weakest part of writing album and song articles. Erick (talk) 18:52, 8 November 2013 (UTC)
OK, that won't affect my decision to pass it. Great work and congratulations.--Вик Ретлхед (talk) 21:32, 8 November 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for the review. I'm glad this was able to pass before the anniversary of the tragedy. Erick (talk) 23:56, 8 November 2013 (UTC)
