AllMusic Review by

This is Pedro Conga's 13th recorded effort, which seems quite pertinent since salsa has become more amalgamated with rap and hip-hop elements. Those elements can be heard in Eso Me Gusta!, but the album still maintains a traditional feel. Edgardo Diaz, Rafi Cruz, and Ito Rivera (Jerry Rivera's brother) give their swinging all in this production. The infectious title song is the real plus; however, "Ven Conmigo Corazón," "Amor a Primera Vista," "Donde Estas," and "Si Se Quiere Ir, Que Se Vaya" are equally danceable and fun to listen to. As usual, producer Julio Gunda Merced puts together a nifty production. Arrangements are by Merced, Roberto Perez, Ceferino Caban, and Maximo Torres. Highly recommended for Conga and salsa fans.
