Jon O'Brien From Allmusic gave the album a mixed review Claiming that "Their Greatest Hits feels like a cynical cash-in that's appeared way too early in the band's career to make any impact." as well as criticizing the fact there are no new songs and that it did not include the song "We Dance On" which was a top 10 hit on the UK Singles Charts.
