AllMusic Review by

A faulty Skyy compilation from the ever unreliable ZYX, this disc contains many of the group's charting singles -- "Here's to You," "High," "Call Me," "Celebrate" -- but favors many inferior album cuts over other charting singles. Neither "First Time Around" nor "Let's Turn It Out" (which gave the group its first two trips to the R&B chart) are here, and the selection cuts off chronologically before 1984, so the later Top Ten singles ("Givin It (To You)," "Start of a Romance," "Real Love") weren't even considered. While the group's early years were also its best, any compilation that doesn't acknowledge the later years is going to be problematic, and it's not as if this disc is close to accurate with the years it does cover.
