CD Reviews

You want Latin music? BUY THIS CD!!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Juan Luis Guerra is without question a musical genius in the realm of Latin music. This album is an EXCELLENT compilation of his finest work, and you would be hard-pressed to find another album of such quality merengue and salsa. Juan Luis Guerra not only puts together great sounding tunes that make you want to grab someone and dance- his lyrics are also very well put together, which is a stark contrast to some other Latin artists. I would recommend individual songs, but considering the ENTIRE DISC is top-notch, it's impossible: they are all GREAT! A must buy."
Essential brilliance
(5 out of 5 stars)

"WOW!!! Juan Luis Guerra is an absolute genius. If you want brilliance, this is it! It is one of the most important albums in my collection. Who can resist pure classics such as "La Bilirrubina," "Visa para un sueño," "Burbujas de Amor, " "Bachata Rosa, " "Ojala que llueva café." Juan Luis Guerra y 4.40 are, without any doubt, a MUST. This collection of some of his best songs excellent merengue and bachata straight from the Dominican Republic. Not only is the music mesmerizingly superb, but the lyrics are intelligent, beautiful, moving, fun, they incarnate so many feelings and thoughts coming from the people, the heart, the soul, and nature...these songs have the power to make you cry, be glad to be alive, or sometimes just dance the night away( Bebiendo guavaberry al ritmo de un tambor, O bailando feliz en San Pedro de Macoris!!). If you're curious about Juan Luis Guerra Y 4.40 or if you're a long-time fan, or if you're simply a person in search of masterpieces, then this collection was designed for you! Y me voy' que to' los niños canten en el campo...OJALA QUE LLUEVA CAFÉ EN EL CAMPO!!! OJALA QUE LLUEVA CAFE!"
Fantastic journey through Dominican Republic via hot beat
(5 out of 5 stars)

"While in the Dominican Republic, I heard music everywhere and it was happy, lively, rhythmic, and irresistible. Juan Luis Guerra's Greatest Hits CD was even better than my Dominican friend said it would be! And I'm quite experienced with Latin music, as I've lived in Latin America and speak Spanish. This CD gives you a unique creation with each song. It takes you to different areas of the island and gives you a glimpse of the local culture. For those who understand the language, you'll get an extra treat because the lyrics are exquisite and the stories are uniquely Latin. This CD is worth much more than what it costs. It's a precious addition to one's Latin American collection -- a MUST HAVE! If you want to dance or sing your heart out, Juan Luis Guerra will take you there EVERY time."
