AllMusic Review by

Greatest Hits, Vol. 2 is a 12-track overview of the Temptations' late-'60s recordings, containing such hits as "Cloud Rain," "I Wish It Would Rain," "Ball of Confusion," "(I Know) I'm Losing You," "I Can't Get Next to You," "You're My Everything," "Runaway Child, Running Wild" and "Psychedelic Shack." Like its predecessor, Vol. 2 balances hits with lesser-known tracks ("Don't Let the Joneses Get You Down," "(Loneliness Made Me Realize) It's You That I Need"), and that makes the collection less interesting to casual fans who only want hits. They'll be better served by latter-day collections which feature hits from both Vol. 1 and Vol. 2, but this album remains a solid summation of the Temptations' late-'60s singles.
