AllMusic Review by

Wilson Phillips may have been nearly ubiquitous during the dawning years of the '90s, but they really didn't have that many big singles -- only four, actually: "Hold On," "You're in Love," "Impulsive," and "Release Me," plus the minor hit "The Dream Is Still Alive." That's not a lot to build a collection on, much less a 15-track retrospective, so it's only natural that Capitol had to pad this out with a variety of rarities -- album cuts, songs contributed to tribute albums, live cuts, and, best of all, a 90-second "Conversation with Wilson Phillips." In other words, it's a bit much, and it would have been much better if it were ten tracks, since the filler wouldn't stand out as much, and that filler really does slow it down quite a bit, even if this is a fairly representative overview of the group's short-lived time in the sun.
