2002 Ano de Exitos: Salsa is a collection of some of the biggest salsa songs from 2001. Featuring several important artists of the genre, the album is a great sampler of mainstream salsa that includes some pretty good songs on it. Standing out is Kevin Ceballo's excellent "Mi Primer Amor," which has a sweeping pop vibe that mixes nicely with the salsa rhythms. But cuts by Mickey Taveras, Jay Lozada, and, especially, India are more quality offerings. Overall, this is a good sampler of what was going on in the genre at the time, and will probably appeal to any fan of modern salsa.
