AllMusic Review by

Two early albums from Guatemalan singer, songwriter, and superstar Ricardo Arjona are collected in this set with 1993's Animal Nocturno and 1994's Historias both packed inside. The albums come from a particularly experimental time in the adventurous Arjona's career, with the breakthrough effort Animal Nocturno sounding like a rocker's album. "Mujeres" and "Primera Vez" are the album's hits, while the massively successful Historias features "Te Conozco" and "Señora de las Cuatro Décadas," along with more sophistication and genre-jumping when it comes to the music. These are the two most successful efforts in the singer's early catalog, and even if they both went multi-platinum with millions sold, Arjona's audience spans generations, making archival sets such as this all the more necessary and attractive.
