Released in March 1994 exactly a year before Selena would be shot and killed by her ex-fan club president, this CD demonstrates a band at the peak of its creative force. The hits were obvious--the eloquent "Amor Prohibido," on love conducted in secret, and "Bidi Bidi Bom Bom," a magical pop tune that could work in any dance club. "Cobarde" and "El Chico" were easy cumbias to like; "Fotos y Recuerdos" was an ironic message on having only photographs and memories left. But highly underrated was the lovely and stoic "No Me Queda Mas," on facing the end, yet keeping a sense of dignity and self-worth. --Ramiro Burr

"Amor Prohibido is a fantastic album,everybody should listen to it to know how incredible was Selena. All albums released by selena were great, but this one is special because her voice is more beautiful than ever, and we can listen to many styles of music, such as Cumbia, Rock and Mariachi.It`s also good to remember that all musics from Amor Prohibido were very succesful.It`s very difficult to tell what song is the best, because all of them are fantastic, but my favorite one is "No me queda mas",the best Mariachi ballada Selena has ever sung in my opinion, followed by "Si una ves" and "Fotos y recuerdos", songs we can listen to all day long without wanting to stop. yes, the last Selena album before her death is a must and all people who want to know her music should buy it immediately."

"This album was critiziezed for being unbalenced, with different styles of music mixed into one album. I disagree, Selena was very good in many different types of music. Amor Prohibido is the best album Selena ever released in life, a chance that we had to see what we would lose a year later. I liked the title track of course. But "Fots Y Recuerdos" was an incredible number. Followed By her hit "Bidi Bidi Bom Bom" and "Techno Cumbia" witch are now songs known by every latin music listener. Then Came "No Me Queda Mas" a remix from the 1993 hit, which was written by Ricky Vela to Selena's sister Suzette, because he was in love with her. This Mariachi ballad was incredible. "Ya No" was an exellent Rock-Style ending to what would be Selena's final album. We will never forget you, "Queen Of Tejano""
