AllMusic Review by

Like the other installments in the Ultimate Hits series, More Ultimate Disco isn't bad for a budget release. There's no outright filler, and though many of its selections are getting pretty tired in 2005, it's still an enjoyable cross-section of disco hits. There are some great diva tracks, like "If I Can't Have You" from Alicia Bridges and Thelma Houston's "Don't Leave Me This Way," both full of swirling strings and honeyed reverb. "Brick House," "Hustle," and "Fifth of Beethoven" are hopelessly played out, but still enduring, while the goofy swagger of Andy Gibb's "Shadow Dancing" is an inspired opener. The extended, dreamy openers of Donna Summer's "Last Dance" and Stephanie Mills' "Never Knew Love Like This Before" are also classic.
