SonicNet Music News Of The World had a full report about this 16-song album which features rare, live or unreleased cuts from all the acts. "Pearl Jam will contribute covers of J. Frank Wilson & the Cavaliers' "Last Kiss" and Arthur Alexander's "Soldier of Love," both of which will appear separately on a benefit single; the songs originally appeared on a Pearl Jam fan-club single."
Three international organizations will benefit from the album. They are Doctors Without Borders, OXFAM, and Cooperative for Assistance and Relief Everywhere. They will receive an initial donation of $1 million from Epic Records as well as future revenues from the project.

Reviews Of "No Boundaries"

The June 18, 1999 (#480) issue of Entertainment Weekly also reviewed the album but did not mention Tori's track. They gave the album a grade of B. They said:
Multi-act compilations have become the trash bins of the record business, but this hodgepodge benefiting Kosovo refugees has a few tidbits worth salvaging: Pearl Jam's somber remake of "Last Kiss", a swinging remix of Korn's "Freak on a Leash", Neil Young's live "War of Man". The worst moments (Bush unplugged, Alanis Morisette's live "Baba") could force the Kosovars to go back across the border. B
