For a band that likes to claim they "broke the rules," Aventura may have found that bachata actually bent them: They've never been able to delve much into the R&B and rap they claim as influences. This nicely produced album tries to break loose -- Luda and Wyclef join on "Spanish Fly," Akon on "All Up 2 U" -- but for the most part, it's another reliable delivery of roses and champagne to your hotel room's bubble bath. And don't get us wrong -- that's great. But there's a reason they've called this The Last, much to their fans' chagrin.
