Allmusic 3/5 stars[1]

Andy Kellman of Allmusic states that the compilation "is an alternative to the more widely available Ultimate Toni Braxton. On the surface, it appears to only be a shortened version of Ultimate Toni Braxton, with four less tracks, but a deeper look reveals a very different compilation. This set is recommendable only if you'd prefer to do without 'Another Sad Love Song,' 'I Love Me Some Him,' 'Hit the Freeway,' 'I Don't Want To,' and another handful of Braxton's U.S. chart hits. A comparison of the two discs does help show how the perception of an artist's best material can differ from territory to territory."[1]
