AllMusic Review by

Delta's World Lounge series continues with World Lounge: Caribbean Lounge, a double-disc set of vocal and instrumental lounge music with an island flair. The selections range from the kitsch ("Mambo From the West Indies," "Let's Go Calypso," "Me Donkey Don't To"), to songs somewhat grounded in genuine Caribbean music ("Sabrosona," "Yo Sabia Que Un Dia"). At any rate, tracks like "Jamaican Mambo," "Abrete Sesamo," and "Mambo St. Croix" -- one of the few tracks on this set to feature steel drums -- sound fun and summery, and the set on the whole is more about feeling "tropical" than delivering authenticity. On those terms, World Lounge: Caribbean Lounge offers an enjoyable soundtrack for a beach or pool party.
