AllMusic Review by

On July 13, 2015, two months after this compilation was released, songwriter and singer Joan Sebastian, a longtime cancer survivor, succumbed to the disease. He won seven Latin Grammy Awards and five Grammys; he is the most awarded Mexican performer in Grammy history. This set contains 20 tracks, nearly all of them hits. Included here are passionate ballads ("Un Idiota" and "Secreto de Amor"), breezy rockers ("Y las Mariposas), tender cumbias ("Hasta Que Amanezca" and "Vete o Me Voy"), and gorgeous mariachis ("Llorar"). Fans may argue as to which compilation is best, but Personalidad is an excellent start for the beginner and a noteworthy memento for longtime fans.
