AllMusic Review by

One of the first of many subsequent best-of CDs featuring the Crown Heights Affair, and it still kicks! While named after a lively, mostly urban section of Brooklyn, NY, the band has a disco/soul sound that occasionally gets raw, i.e., "Sure Shot" and some others. Highs include their signature "Dreamin' a Dream," which is as infectious as anything from the era, the explorative "Foxy Lady," "Far Out," "Love Ripoff," "Say a Prayer For You," and "Rock the World," an old-school rap joint.
