AllMusic Review by

As its title states, 20 Exitos del Ayer: Cumbia Romantica collects cumbia love songs, including los Fugitivos' "La Loca," los Yonic's' "Muchacha Magica," los Terricolas' "Hasta Ayer," and los Mier's "Amame." Other highlights include Yndio's "Eres Mi Mundo," a cover of the '60s pop classic "You're My World," and Baron de Apocada's "Jacarandosa." The rest of the album is also strong but not especially diverse, featuring more songs from the aforementioned artists. It may not be the most eclectic cumbia collection, but 20 Exitos del Ayer: Cumbia Romantica does give a taste of the genre's softer side.
