AllMusic Review by

Released through Universal in Japan, Universal Masters Collection is an 18-track set that features many -- but not close to all -- of Donna Summer's significant hits. Its use of abbreviated single edits, as with the major hits "Love to Love You Baby" and "I Feel Love" -- they're both knocked down to three minutes -- is a drawback. It does contain does the Top Ten Billboard Hot 100 crossovers "Bad Girls" and "No More Tears (Enough Is Enough)," but it's missing too many of the songs that one should expect to get from a best-of. The disc's lack of "Heaven Knows," "Hot Stuff," "Last Dance," and "MacArthur Park" makes it easy to dismiss.
