AllMusic Review by

With the glaring absence of "Let's Stay Together," "Love and Happiness," and "Take Me to the River," among others, it's difficult to get too excited about this set in the 20th Century Masters series, one designed to offer straightforward hits packages. Still, there are 11 fine tunes here from the king of smooth Southern soul, including classics like "Tired of Being Alone" and "I'm Still in Love with You." Green's high, aching tenor and sensual delivery is forever affecting, while his elegant, funky arrangements are the perfect complement. Though not especially outstanding as a greatest-hits compilation, The Millennium Collection has enough good music to constitute a potent dose of the Reverend Al.
