AllMusic Review by

Millesimes, Vol. 1 consists of remixed and remastered versions of the original hits by this supergroup of master studio musicians. Not much that the Zouk Allstars record is boring or tepid. The quality of the zouk that they put out is top-shelf. This album blows up the originals and extends them to the technological limits available at the time. In contrast to too many remixes, these are not only faithful to the originals but take them into another level of energy, laterally and vertically. The Zouk Allstars have numerous volumes out, but the remixed versions are well worth seeking out for zouk addicts. They are on the mark and can fill up a room on an adequate sound system with very danceable grooves. A listen to "Man Ze Mari" at a nicely pumped volume will zouk-ify anyone. Essential for serious French Antillean party exponents.
