AllMusic Review by

EMI’s massive six-disc Original Hits: The Girls box set features 120 tracks from (you guessed it) girls. While the criteria set by the compilers may be maddeningly broad (no pun intended), there are more than a few gems to be found on Girls. The U.K.-centric mix sports its fair share of classic pop icons (Pat Benatar, Blondie, Sinéad O’Connor, Kirsty MacColl, Crystal Gayle, Cher), but there are enough cuts from 21st century pop radio phenoms like KT Tunstall and Lily Allen to bridge the generational gap successfully.
