AllMusic Review by Andy Kellman

This fourth installment in Hed Kandi's Back to Love series continues to channel the spirit of the same-named late-'80s London club night. As with the other volumes, there are some anachronous selections, but they all go along with the remainder of the tracks just fine. There's a nice balance between house and hip-hop, with the best cuts coming from Eric B & Rakim ("I Know You Got Soul"), Stetsasonic ("Talkin' All That Jazz"), Rob Base & DJ E-Z Rock ("It Takes Two"), Todd Terry (his version of Phreek's "Weekend"), Soul II Soul ("Keep on Movin'"), and Cheryl Lynn ("Got to Be Real," a disco-era staple). The quality level with the selections is much higher on these discs than they are on Hed Kandi's other multi-volume series.
