AllMusic Review by

With almost 100 tracks, this massive compilation of some of Motown's biggest hits serves as an awesome reminder of the enormity of the talent on the label and its far-reaching popularity. Going in a loosely chronological order, Motown Anthems begins with ubiquitous hits from the label's golden age from the Supremes, the Four Tops, Marvin Gaye, and the like, but soon branches into later hits from the '70s and '80s, including chart-toppers from Lionel Richie and Rockwell. The collection is rounded out nicely by Boyz II Men, representing the label's activity in the '90s, still making waves in soul, R&B, and the sound of young America.
