AllMusic Review by

Another compilation of singles and album tracks from the Ethiopians' middle period, this CD gives listeners a chance to hear the breadth of their talent from the social commentary of "Everyday Talking" to the pure calls to dance of "Do It Sweet," "Wreck It Up," and the title track. The trio's vocals remain sweet and pure throughout, though the audio quality is variable -- their cover of "Sh-Boom" is distorted beyond listenability. This compilation does not include any of their hits, so the beginner may want to make this a purchase somewhere down the line.
