AllMusic Review by

The name pretty much says it all here. The Best Latin Party Album in the World...Ever features every aspect of Latin party music, from classics like José Feliciano's "Light My Fire" and Milton Nascimento's "Cravo e Canela (Clove and Cinnamon)," to trendy chart-toppers like los Umbrellos' "No Tengo Dinero," Kaoma's "Lambada," and los del Rio's mega-hit "Macarena." Rock and pop acts with a Latin flair are represented here too, from the Ritchie Valens classic "La Bamba" to the Gipsy Kings' "Bamboleo" to Beck's "Burro." Jazzy cuts like Mongo Santamaria's "Watermelon Man" and Quincy Jones' "Soul Bossa Nova" combine with the rest of the mix for a diverse and fun album of Latin and Latin-influenced party music.
