AllMusic Review by

This two-CD anthology compiles 30 hits from Fito Paez. Most were composed during his Warner years, from 1990-2001. This era was especially prolific for him and he managed to create hits that became hymns, like "Dale Alegría a Mi Corazón" and "A Rodar Mi Vida." On this compilation there are seven songs from Tercer Mundo and from his masterpiece, El Amor Después del Amor, and several songs from the other albums. It contains two pieces from his failed collaboration with Joaquín Sabina: "Llueve Sobre Mojado" and "Delirium Tremens." There are also a few hits from his '80s harvest: "Del 63," "11y 6," "Ciudad de Pobres Corazones," and "Giros." Unfortunately, there are no bonus tracks, nor either liner notes or a decent booklet as the artist deserves. Although in terms of coverage of his career there are many missed points, especially from his '80s period, this is the best place to start if you want to dig into the career of one of the most talented Argentinean artists.
