AllMusic Review by

Released in Australia in 1999, after the massive success of "Believe," The Greatest Hits is a 19-track collection that samples the biggest hits from throughout Cher's career (including her time with Sonny), but concentrates the heaviest on her '80s/early-'90s material. This emphasis on latter-day material is emphasized by the reverse-chronological sequencing, as it begins with "Believe" and then turns back time by running through "The Shoop Shoop Song (It's in His Kiss)," "If I Could Turn Back Time," "Love and Understanding," "Just Like Jesse James," and "I Found Someone" before getting to "All I Really Want to Do," "Bang Bang," "Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves," "The Beat Goes On," and "I Got You Babe." Not the most logical sequencing in the world and there are hits, such as "I Paralyze," missing, but this does have all the signature songs in one place, which may be enough for many listeners looking for a collection that does just that, regardless of sequencing.
