AllMusic Review by

Grandes Exitos features 16 tracks from La Ley's early years (1990-1994). In fact, it reunites hits from their first two albums: Doble Opuesto, and the out of print EP "La Cara de Dios," the latter recorded while the band were still operating and recording in Chile (later they signed to Warner Music and moved to Mexico). All the hits that helped the band breakthrough are here: "Tejedores de Ilusión," "Prisioneros de la Piel," and "Auto-Ruta." You can also find the Rolling Stones' cover "Angie," along with one of the oldest songs in their repertoire, "Qué Va a Suceder" (the original version was included in the band's debut, the 1989 demo "Desiertos," of which only 500 tape copies were released). This album also gives the listener a good chance to hear the fine work done by Andres Bobe, the band's original guitarist, who died tragically just when the band was starting to achieve regional success.
