AllMusic Review by

Although La Banda el Recodo (or La Banda Sinaloense as they're called here) have long been one of the most popular and prolific purveyors of banda music, they are also capable of moving into other styles, as Solo lo Nuestro: 20 Exitos shows. Most of the songs on the compilation are pure banda (the hits "El Sinaloense," "El Niño Perdido," "La Ley del Monte," etc.), but there are other pieces, like Pérez Prado's "Norma la de Guadalajara," that even delve into mambo. No, it's not a complete greatest-hits collection (that would be nearly impossible on one disc), but with 20 good songs, it's a pretty decent choice.
