AllMusic Review by

The promise of its title aside, the fifth volume in Motown's 16 Big Hits series follows the pattern set by its predecessors, striking a fine balance between chart smashes and lesser-known gems. While the primary drawing cards include familiar favorites like Junior Walker & the All-Stars' "Shotgun," the Miracles' "The Tracks of My Tears," and Martha & the Vandellas' "Nowhere to Run," collectors will undoubtedly be more interested in the inclusion of less-anthologized material such as the Temptations' "It's Growing" and Mary Wells' "When I'm Gone."
