AllMusic Review by

Just like its companion, More Broken Hearted Soul Essentials is a great collection of 17 heartbreak soul songs. The compilers nicely balance '60s and '70s material, and the end result is always entertaining, thanks to such classics as "If You Don't Know Me By Now," "I Heard It Through the Grapevine," "Midnight Train to Georgia," "(If Loving You Is Wrong) I Don't Want to Be Right," "Oh Girl," "Ooh Baby Baby," "Love Don't Live Here Anymore," "Rainy Night in Georgia," and "Walk on By," plus such lesser-known gems as "The Only One for Me," "I Don't Go Shopping," "Love Don't Love Nobody," "You Don't Have to Hurt No More," "Misty Blue," "I Still Belive," "Ain't No Love in the Heart of the City," and "And I'm Telling You I'm Not Going."
