AllMusic Review by

The U.S. version of 30 Stars of the '90s features a single-disc, 30-track collection of radio hits from the era that forgoes grunge for dancefloor-ready pop, beginning with the ubiquitous 1990 C+C Music Factory smash "Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)." The remaining 29 cuts represent a decent cross-section of genres, with highlights arriving via the catwalk parody/one hit wonder "I'm Too Sexy" (Right Said Fred), Sophie B. Hawkins' soulful "Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover," Spin Doctors' college rock/jam band classic "Two Princes," and Ricky Martin's crossover Spanish-language hit "Livin' la Vida Loca."
