Album Review

Released in 2003 shortly after Soraya mounted a comeback with her self-titled debut for EMI Latin, Esenciales: The Ultimate Collection is an attempt by her former label, Universal, to cash in on that comeback. Esenciales lives up to its billing, compiling the highlights from Soraya's three albums for Universal: En Esta Noche, Torre de Marfil, and Cuerpo y Alma.

Either is a better option than Esenciales, though you could do worse.
