With Destiny, Gloria Estefan ties together the Cuban and Latinbeat influences she had been exploring on her Spanish albums with the adult contemporary pop that dominated her early-'90s records. It's a stylish concept and, for the most part, Estefan pulls it off. Like most of her albums, Destiny suffers from uneven material and a creeping sense of sameness between the songs, but Estefan's voice keeps getting stronger with age, which helps her rescue the weaker material on the record. And the best moments of Destiny -- including the Olympic anthem "Reach," "I'm Not Giving You Up," and "Higher," among others -- rank with her finest work.
