AllMusic Review by Heather Phares

Arriba el Norte & Arriba el Sur collects a dozen lively banda and norteño songs from some of the styles' most prominent acts, including Los Humildes' "Disculpe Usted," Banda Maguey's "El Rey," and Los Razos' "Mi Carinito." Other highlights include Banda la Costeña's "Domingo Corrales" and David Olivarez's "Al Reves." While this compilation doesn't offer much diversity in the artists it features, the sampling of banda and norteño it does provide is fun and festive.
