AllMusic Review by

In the mid-'90s, the world of Latin pop was in dire need of an old-fashioned romantic singer, somebody who would be able to reproduce the charisma of legendary crooners such as Jose Jose, Roberto Carlos, or Palito Ortega--a new artist who would bring back to the genre an injection of old-fashioned melodrama.

The prayers of so many female fans were finally answered in 1996, when Colombian singer Charlie Zaa released the smash record SENTIMIENTOS, claiming the throne of Latin pop and romantic balladry. REMIXES celebrates the first four years in the career of Zaa, giving his sentimental anthems a rhythmic makeover that allows them to shine in the disco floor as well. The outstanding "Un Disco Mas" demonstrates the importance that Zaa attributes to the lyrics, with a clever "world-within-a-world" story about songs (and records) bringing back memories of loves that once seemed promising but could never become a reality.
