AllMusic Review by

As its name implies, Lo Mejor de Ellos con Mariachi features some of the most popular contemporary mariachi songs, featuring tracks from five artists: Los Rehenes, Roberto Verduzco, Los Grey's, Herencia Mexicana, and Mariachi Fiesta Mexicana. In keeping with mariachi's traditions, songs like Los Rehenes' "Necesito Que Regreses," Mariachi Fiesta Mexicana's "El Pipiripau," and Herencia Mexicana's "En la Cima del Mundo" (a south of the border-flavored cover of the Carpenters' "Top of the World") have a warm, festive feel, while "Almas Heridas" by Los Grey's and Roberto Verduzco's "Eres" are more dramatic and contemporary-sounding. While the album doesn't offer much in the way of diversity, it is a thoroughly enjoyable collection of modern mariachi music.
