AllMusic Review by

Combining the first two Greatest Hits albums (which were already paired on CD) with the third entry in the series, this collection takes all the radio hits Joel has ever had and puts them together. To the casual fan, this would make an excellent purchase; virtually every song that someone would associate with Joel is here. To someone who follows his career closely, this album features nothing that has not been heard before. The only other real problem is that there are too many songs here, especially on the padded third CD. But overall, this is a perfect way to get some Billy Joel into a record collection without having to buy any of his individual albums.
