When you're known as the godfather of Latin guitar music and you have a grand total of 37 albums – 22 of which are studio recorded – to your name, there's a certain expectation. Unfortunately Corazon does not meet the mark. Let's start with the elephant in the room: Oye 2014 is a modern-day re-imagining of Oye Como Va. The big surprise? Pitbull features on it. Yep. It's as crass and overwrought as you'd expect, which is the fate of most of the record. Freakout jazz jam Yo Soy La Luz is the only shining light.
