AllMusic Review by

A mammoth double-disc, 42-track showcase, La Trayectoria compiles an army of Luny Tunes productions, including hits by some of the most well-known artists in the reggaeton arena circa the early to mid-2000s. Tego Calderón, Daddy Yankee, Don Omar, Wisin & Yandel, Zion & Lennox, Baby Ranks -- all these guys and many others make appearances over the course of the two discs, making La Trayectoria not only a showcase for Luny Tunes but for reggaeton in general. It all amounts to a marathon session of first-rate music: you're highly unlikely to find this much talent on display on any one reggaeton album, let alone in such abundance. However, it is true that La Trayectoria may be too much of a good thing. Anyone who's not passionate about reggaeton might be overwhelmed by so much at once -- after a while it might start to sound the same if you're unacquainted with the intricacies of the style and the associated language. But if you get feverish for this sort of music, you'll be absolutely in rapture as you make your way through these two hours of music. Reggaeton albums rarely if ever get better than La Trayectoria, an outstanding album that offers quality as well as quantity -- a perfect, good-value starter CD for neophytes.
