AllMusic Review by

Egrem's Antologia de la Nueva Trova, Vol. 2 collects more of Cuba's most political and poetic nueva trova songs, including Silvio Rodríguez's "Fusil Contra Fusil," Pablo Milanés' "Pobre del Cantor," Grupo Moncada's "Decimas a Jose Antonio Echevarria," and Ruben Galindo's "Cancion à la Paloma Blanca." Other highlights include Milanés' "Sin Articulo Mortis," Pedro Luis Ferrer's "Romance de la Niña Mala," and Miriam Ramos' "Para Tu Piel." Though by itself the collection isn't a comprehensive history of this political folk song style, it is a solid volume within the series as well as a good introduction to some of nueva trova's definitive artists.
