AllMusic Review by

While the title is unquestionably a subjective call, this two-disc set compiles some of the best club and commercial dance hits of 2002. The styles and tempos shift between all sorts of genres -- including 2-step, garage, house, trance, rap, and Europop -- to provide an accurate canvas of the dance scene. Some of bigger contributions come courtesy of Missy Elliott ("4 My People"), Kylie Minogue ("Can't Get You Out of My Head"), Moby ("We Are All Made of Stars"), and Aaliyah ("More Than a Woman"). While the second disc falters and stumbles through heavier electronic club anthems, the first disc is sure to be a party pleaser and is worth the purchase price to have many of these hits on one disc. A fine soundtrack and yearbook for the casual dance enthusiast.
