AllMusic 3.5/5 stars[2]

Stephen Thomas Erlewine gave the compilation a three and-a-half out of five star rating, commenting that it was "divided fairly" between her '80s and '90s hits, but also said that "Not every one of her big hits is here -- 'The Pleasure Principle', 'Rhythm Nation', 'Love Will Never Do (Without You)', 'If', 'Got Til It's Gone' are all MIA -— but this is a good sampler indicating the breadth and depth of Miss Janet’s work."[2]
