AllMusic Review by

Given the rash of success Luny Tunes experienced in the wake of their debut album, Mas Flow (2003) -- scoring hits and club favorites left and right, becoming reggaeton's go-to hitmakers in the process -- it's not really a surprise to discover the wealth of great music on Mas Flow, Vol. 2. It's expected, actually. Still, greatness is in such abundance here on this jam-packed 25-track album (a 20-track disc supplemented by a five-track bonus one) that you might well wonder how these two guys are able to keep it up. After all, they've not only kept their output high as well as their quality, but they've also expanded the variety of their productions, all the while staying consistently on point. It's quite remarkable, in fact. Granted, it helps when you have a long roster of talented performers to bolster your productions, and it also helps that reggaeton is a relatively loose, free-flowing musical style unconstrained by verse-chorus-verse arrangements. Any way you look at it, however, Mas Flow, Vol. 2 is one of the best reggaeton releases you're likely to encounter, now or ever. Highlights abound, including big hits like Wisin & Yandel's "Rakata," the sped-up-sounding posse track "Mayor Que Yo," and the explosive remix of Frankie J's "Obsession." The two versions of Daddy Yankee's "Mirame" are likewise highlights, the second one boasting a verse by Tego Calderón; the song has a distinct Eastern vibe, partly courtesy of vocalist Deevani. Baby Ranks gets co-billing here on Mas Flow, Vol. 2, and indeed he contributes heavily to the album. As always with these Luny Tunes albums, the big serving of music can be too much for some people, especially if taken all in one sitting. Fans of the style will relish the value of Mas Flow, Vol. 2, however. Not only is there a wealth of music here, but it's all well crafted, for the most part. Reggaeton albums don't get much better than this.
