AllMusic Review by

Love songs are the very bedrock of pop music, and every generation, year after year, has its own love songs, making the years go by with a constant stream of them, and some of those love songs break through the generations to become timeless and enduring favorites across the board. This generous 20-song set features several of those. One wonders, though, if some of these, like Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive," Soft Cell's "Tainted Love," and Kenny Rogers' "Ruby Don't Take Your Love to Town," all of which are collected here, are actually love songs in the usual sense. Love is a big word, though, full of as many downs as ups, so with that in mind, even these seem to fit.
