Exitos del Merengue is a compilation of fast-moving dance songs by Latin artists. At times the music is almost too fast-paced for its own good, with songs flying by with bumblebee quickness. But some songs (like Luis Agrurrola's "Tu Vas a Volar") are just right, striking the balance between danceable rhythms and virtuoso playing. The album as a whole is fairly good, but the genre itself may not translate well to anyone not familiar with the artists. This album is recommended for fans of this sort of music, but there are better places for the uninitiated to start.
