AllMusic Review by

The Australian comp The Best of Ricky Martin delivers just what the title promises -- the highlights of Martin's English and Spanish-language pop careers. All the usual suspects, like "Livin' la Vida Loca," "She Bangs," "Shake Your Bon-Bon," and "Private Emotion," are here, as well as remixes of "Amor," "Maria," and "Loaded." "Nobody Wants to Be Lonely" and "Be Careful (Cuidado con Mi Corazón)," Martin's duets with Christina Aguilera and Madonna, and "The Cup of Life," the official song of the 1998 World Cup, are some of the disc's other high points. Though it doesn't really dig into Martin's early-'90s albums, The Best of Ricky Martin is a handy, concise overview of the songs that made him a superstar.
