AllMusic Review by Andy Kellman

UMTV U.K.'s Welcome to the Club features 40 club hits, the majority of which were released during 2008 and 2009. Six of these songs topped the U.K. chart, and over 20 additional inclusions reached the Top Ten. A few inclusions, such as Jeremih’s “Birthday Sex,” Calvin Harris’ “I’m Not Alone,” and Tina Cousins’ “Sex on Fire,” appear in dance remix (rather than original album) form. Despite the club-centric nature of the compilation, there’s a surprising amount of stylistic range on display, from the left-of-center Florence + the Machine (“Rabbit Heart [Raise It Up]”) to the populist-and-proud-of-it Black Eyed Peas (“I Gotta Feeling”).
