AllMusic Review by

Leaving no stone unturned, Deca Dance rifles through happy hardcore for Hardcore, another perfectly avoidable three-disc package that only works as a cheap starter kit. Like virtually every other similarly formatted release from the label, the selection is shoddy at best and hardly exemplifies the theme being covered. Hardcore isn't definitive, and it couldn't have possibly been designed that way -- but there's little to recommend here, unless you count the handful of inclusions that gave the movement some credibility. Scooter's "Back in the U.K.," Hixxy & Sharkey's "Toytown," Force & Styles' "Heart of Gold," and Sy & Unknown's "Techno Harmony" are most of the highlights.
