Allmusic 4/5 stars[1]

Gold is one of Donna Summer's greatest hits compilations. Donna Summer's entry in Universal Music's two-disc compilation series Gold is more or less a re-release of 1993's The Donna Summer Anthology, with the most noticeable differences being the cover art and that Gold includes four of her 90's Club and R&B hits, which came out after the Anthology. Also, other 80's European hits, such as "Dinner With Gershwin", and the 7 inch remix of "Love's About to Change My Heart", that were not included on the Anthology, are present here. However, the two tracks from 1981's shelved Geffen Records album I'm a Rainbow on disc two are left out, as are "Once Upon A Time" and "Rumour Has It", both from the 1977 album Once Upon a Time, the hit single "Cold Love" from 1980 album The Wanderer, and the album track "Friends Unknown" from Mistaken Identity.
