AllMusic Review by

Sabrina's come a long way since she first showed up in Archie Comics. As played by Melissa Joan Hart, she's a hip '90s adolescent with music tastes that you'd expect from a with-it teeny-bopper. Pop is the order of the day and the usual suspects show up on this sugar-coated collection. The Spice Girls dabble in some serious dub with "Walk Of Life" while male heartthrobs 'N Sync and the Backstreet Boys check in with "Giddy Up" and "Hey, Mr. DJ (Keep Playin' This Song)" respectively.

The Europop contingent is well represented by Robyn ("Show Me Love"), Aqua ("Doctor Jones") and The Cardigans ("Blah, Blah, Blah") whereas America keeps up with Ben Folds Five ("Kate") and The Murmurs ("Smash.") Interesting covers are sprinkled in whether its Sugar Ray tackling Steve Miller's "Abracadabra" or Matthew Sweet covering Walter Egan's "Magnet & Steel" with help from Lindsay Buckingham and former Bangle Susanna Hoffs. Sabrina herself takes a stab at singing Blondie's "One Way Or Another" supervised by original producer Richard Gottehrer.
