Tejano superstar Selena begins to fully embrace her unlimited potential on this slick collection, which features a standard mix of rancheras and pop tracks. Every song, however, is a gem, thanks to a Selena's sultry delivery and brother A.B. Quintanilla III's solid production. The shuffling title track features Tejano legend David Lee Garza on accordion, but the album's highlight is Selena's breakout hit, "Baila Esta Cumbia," an infectious classic that would go on to become a sizzling staple of her live sets. The disc also hints at Selena's crossover appeal via the upbeat "Enamorada de Ti" and "No Quiero Saber," which would live on in remixed versions after her untimely death. --Joey Guerra

"The more i listen to her absolutely fun and beautiful music and passionate yet lulling voice, the more i am reminded that mexico has undergone one of the greatest, if not the greatest loss in the world. One cannot help but remember the ever-precious, ever-sparkling voice of Selena along with her gorgeous and infectious cumbias, such as La Tracalera, Despues De Enero, and Ya Ves, and then think of how such a princess was taken from her throne too young. obviously those 3 were among my favorites from this disc along with the ever-famous ballad which i will mention at the end of this review. i also loved her pop numbers, No Quiero Saber and Enamorada De Ti. Selena just puts the word electricity back into pop. and if it was never there before, then she invented it. selena is so amazing that she can take a style such as tejano and turn it into a fun and loveable, universal style for listeners of all different ethnicities. of course, i am talking about Ven Conmigo. with this style of music, i can safely say she has now made me love everything! you are taken through an upbeat paradise of happiness, heaven, rhythm and soul, and then an emotional ballad comes on, and tears at your heart strings to know that the magic voice behind it has faded with the sunset.. with this, i am talking about Aunque No Salga El Sol. Yes Selena, even if the sun doesn't rise again because you are gone, we will always love you."

"I bought this CD for a few reasons: (1) I heard "Yo Te Amo" on Live and it became one of my favorite songs by Selena (2) I run what is arguably the #1 Selena site on the internet, and I needed the CD because of that. Ok, so I love Selena. This CD is great for being one of her early CDs with EMI-Latin. It showcases Selena's beautiful voice on originals such as "Enamorada de Ti," "No Quiero Saber," "Aunque No Salga El Sol," etc. I like almost all the songs on the - it is great. If you're a Selena fan, get this CD (either that, or you probably have had it for years, I just got it yesterday). Selena once again proves that she can perform Tejano just as well as what could be classified as old-fashioned pop/rock (No Quiero Saber, Enamorada de Ti, Aunque No Salga El Sol). Like my banner says, SELENA ROCKS."
