Critical reception [ edit ]
Allmusic's Jose F. Promis gave the album three stars out of five. He described the album as "somewhat random — perhaps focusing exclusively on her rock hits would have been a better choice, because including just a couple of old tracks proves somewhat frustrating." He also points out that other hit songs like " Half-Breed" were not included and it affects the album. [1 ]
