AllMusic Review by

At five discs and 100 tracks, this budget set does a great job of standing in for a versatile summer radio station with song after song from several different eras echoing the feel of a beautiful, no-cares-in-the-world summer afternoon’s drive. It’s an impressively varied collection, with songs ranging from Gnarls Barkley's “Crazy” to the Violent Femmes' “Blister in the Sun” (a modern summer song if ever there was one), the Fine Young Cannibals' “She Drives Me Crazy,” and classic fun tracks like the B-52’s' “Love Shack,” Booker T. & the MG's' “Green Onions,” and Seals & Crofts' “Summer Breeze.” It’s a lot of summer in a box for a budget price.
