AllMusic Review by

Like Hits 1, Hits 2 presents an illogically sequenced cross section of some of Prince's biggest hits and most notorious songs, including "Dirty Mind," "I Wanna Be Your Lover," "Head," "Delirious," "Little Red Corvette," "I Would Die 4 U," "Raspberry Beret," "Kiss," "U Got the Look," "Cream," and "Purple Rain." Two new tracks, "Peach" and "The Pope," are included among the 18 cuts and while they don't match the rest of the songs (or the new cuts on Hits 1), they are nevertheless enjoyable. On the whole, Hits 2 is a slightly stronger collection than its predecessor, but it still gives a rather incomplete portrait -- if you buy Hits 2, you need to buy Hits 1.
