AllMusic Review by

Souskay is a zouk group from Martinique that has established a reputation over the years for producing quality zouk with some bite to it. This compilation offers 17 of the group's best-selling singles, like "Karesse," "Chante," "Eden," "Chayew Ale," "Desespwa," "Kaline Mwen," and "Pare Pou Love." The male and female vocals are exceptionally strong and pure. The arrangements are creative and fresh, and don't fall into that zouk love quagmire. A new Souskay release is always eagerly anticipated in the Antilles. Presenting zouk at its best (and plenty of it at 74-plus minutes), this is a good introduction to Souskay's body of work, much of which is out of print. Highly recommended.
