AllMusic Review by

It is quite easy to step back and laugh at this album; one would not think that 69 Boyz would warrant a Greatest Hits album. But oddly enough, this group is perfect for this type of retrospective. Featuring huge hits like "Tootsee Roll," "Kitty Kitty," "C'mon N' Ride It (The Train)," "Space Jams," and countless others, this is a very complete collection. Of course, the main problem with this genre has been sustaining interest over an entire album. 69 Boyz may be the most famous booty group of the '90s, but there still is not an entire album's worth of material here. Instead, there are some massively huge hits mixed in with some typical filler. The most interesting inclusion is "Whoot (There It Is)," a minor hit that capitalized on the success of "Whoop (There It Is)" by changing one letter. The fact that this song was a success goes to show how simple it can be to make money in this industry, something that this entire compilation proves. Anyone who needs these songs on a CD should invest in this. Otherwise, do not expect this album to be an exciting retrospective of an artist's career -- it really is not.
