While the wide variety of styles present keeps RMM's Tropics for the World, Vol. 2 from holding together musically, it does compile a number of big regional hit singles and high-quality material from across the Latin American region (as well as the United States). Volume 2 also includes several newer acts signed to the RMM label, which makes it feel a little more like a promotional device than its predecessor. Featured, among many others, are jazzman Hilton Ruiz, Cuban salsa singer Isaac Delgado, Mikey Perfecto, Descarga Boricua, and Los Jóvenes del Barrio.
