AllMusic Review by

Nearly every song on Absolutely the Best of the 70s: 20 Big Hits hit either the pop or R&B Top Ten, so even if it isn't the most musically cohesive compilation -- covering disco, smooth soul, power pop, and AM radio pop/rock -- it does deliver a pretty consistent, widely recognizable set of '70s pop artifacts. Highlights include the Raspberries' "Go All the Way," the Knack's "My Sharona," Sweet's "Ballroom Blitz," Blue Swede's "Hooked on a Feeling," Maxine Nightingale's "Right Back Where We Started From," A Taste of Honey's "Boogie Oogie Oogie," Al Green's "Let's Stay Together," and Hot Chocolate's "You Sexy Thing," among others.
