AllMusic Review by

The Parranda All-Stars are an assembled collective of Latin pop singers and musicians gathered together to contribute to this red-hot offering of holiday-inspired tunes. Elvis Crespo kicks it all off in grand style, delivering the original bumping salsa boogie "El Burrito Sabanero." Other salsa numbers include Victor Manuelle's "Me Entra un Desespero" and Gilberto Santo Rosa's old-school "El Año Viejo." Pee Wee and Michel Telo offer some tropical-flavored tunes in "Pasito Tun Tun" and "Arbolito de Navidad," respectively. Carlos Vives offers a killer cumbia in "No Te Pongas Triste" and Prince Royce gives us the only ballad with "Mi Regalo Favorito." The closers, polka "Ven a Mi Casa Esta Navidad" by Los Buitres de Culiacan Sinaloa and "Santa Claus Llegó a la Ciudad" by La Adictiva Banda San José de Mesillas send it all off on a celebratory note.
