AllMusic Review by

While the title overstates the case, The Best Cuban Album in the World Ever is a very enjoyable mix of recordings by a variety of Cuban artists. Most of the cuts were recorded between the mid-'90s and 2000, with about a third coming from unspecified earlier dates, including a 1965 performance of "Tanga" by Machito and an earlier recording by Beny Moré ("Cienfuegos"). With great performances by all, fans of Buena Vista Social Club and the like will be sure to enjoy these mid- to up-tempo songs from musicians such as Eliades Ochoa, Los Van Van, Compay Segundo, and more.
