AllMusic Review by

It's hard to tell what makes Instant Party Disc: Extra Strength more powerful than its sibling Instant Party Disc: Regular Strength. It can't just be the music, because "Hooked On Swing," "Surfin' USA," "Caribbean Queen," "Banana Boat (Day-O)," "China Grove," "I'm Too Sexy" and Club Nouveau's "Lean On Me" aren't 101-proof pop/rock. Also, the compilation doesn't feature as many universal standards as Regular Strength. Oh well -- the title is probably just a clever marketing scheme, and any way you look at it, Instant Party Disc: Extra Strength provides an entertaining listen, as it runs through radio favorites like "Play That Funky Music," "Louie, Louie," "That'll Be the Day," "Got to Be Real," "Centerfold," "Disco Inferno," "The Hustle," "Bust a Move" and "U Can't Touch This." Certainly, there's nothing out of the ordinary here, but nothing upsets the party groove -- which means it very well could be useful to those listeners that need an instant soundtrack to an instant party.
