AllMusic Review by

The title is self-explanatory: these are perhaps the best love songs these three great vocalists recorded for Sony. There are 18 selections divided equally between the singers. Victor Manuelle's groover "Me Dará el Consentimiento" kicks things off with a swell of trumpets and trombones before that silky voice takes hold of the lyric and won't let go. Jerry Rivera's breezy "Cuenta Comingo," with its lilting exchange between singer and horns, complemented by pan flutes and synths, is a passionate midtempo ballad with an interesting arrangement. Luis Enrique's baritone is one of the most recognizable voices in Latin music. His selections here include the languid "El Amor Es Algo Más" and the polished "Desperado"; both tunes walk the line between new school salsa and Caribbean pop. Given the price and the hits included, it's tough to argue against this purchase.
