AllMusic Review by

A label-change brought a new lease of life to the major -- indeed only -- woman superstar of the 1980s merengue wave, after a very flaky moment or two. La Diosa is a dynamite album. Somebody gave Belkis one of those guitar-imitating portable pianos, and life in general or her producer added a kind of tough-neurotic edge to her singing, along with some very fine songs (including ones by Arrow and Decimus).
