AllMusic Review by

Pandisc's Masters of Freestyle series takes a significant upturn, not only in terms of packaging (i.e., the graphic design doesn't make your stomach turn) but also in its selections. As opposed to the first three volumes, this fourth volume is more hit than miss. The highlights include Debbie Deb's "Lookout Weekend," Shannon's "Let the Music Play," Trinere's "They're Playing Our Song," Pretty Poison's "Catch Me I'm Falling," Stevie B.'s "Party Your Body," Alisha's "Baby Talk," and Cover Girls' "Show Me." Compared to the other volumes in the series -- and most other freestyle compilations -- it's less reliant on tracks that recycle overused ideas.
