AllMusic Review by

The Young Idea in band-cumbia. The basic bouncy sound -- lots of horns --is cheerfully familiar, but set off in places with sampler-generation electronic effects, and some of the songs are a kind of "cumbia-romantica" blend like the salsa equivalent. Plus, of course, the usual competent takes on Cuban-gone-international salsa are included. Some very nifty piano is, from various indicators, played by Acosta himself.
