Where the first Hitsville box suffered from not featuring enough material, the sequel suffers from having too many tracks. During the 1970s, the label lost its distinctive sound, although the hits continued to come for a number of years. Unfortunately, as the years progress, the hits become fewer and less distinctive -- they follow the trends, instead of setting them. Perhaps this could have been a successful 2-CD set, but at four discs, there aren't enough gems to justify the hefty price ticket. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Rolling Stone (12/23/93, p.148) - 3.5 Stars - Good Plus - "...Most people think the Motown era ended in 1969 with "I Want You Back"--this set argues otherwise. From Michael Jackson's "Got To Be There" to "End Of The Road" by Boyz II Men, there's plenty of chart history here along with a lot of good singles...."
