AllMusic Review by

It's pretty hard to argue the worth of a three-disc set that's made entirely of number one hits, right? But what if it appears to only appeal to those who have four or five CDs in her or his collection -- or those who find the need to make an impulse purchase at the gas station? And, almost as important, what if it comes wrapped in some of the most garish graphic design imaginable, featuring color combinations that were never before used? While most of the songs here will appeal to just about anyone, it's the lack of sense used in selections. It could've been selected by a computer program designed to pick ten number ones from each decade at random. As far as gas station purchases are considered, this might as well be an inexplicable mesh-and-foam baseball cap.
