"...Plena Libre add bits of bossa nova, merengue, and other familiar forms to their own distinctive style. It works a treat, with fleet acoustic guitar trills, honking baritone sax, bata drums, and every imaginable form of hand percussion percolating underneath the group's mass-chanted vocals. In keeping with the group's deep connections to Puerto Rican musical history, however, three of the songs were written by Angel Luis Torruellas, a living legend who would be first pick for Puerto Rico's version of the Buena Vista Social Club, and he provides lead vocals on one track, a fiery, piano-led Latin jazz rendition of his standard "Yenyere." ~ Stewart Mason, All Music Guide
