It's almost a given that when a greatest hits compilation contains a couple of new songs, it means the artist in question doesn't have enough new material to fill out an entire album. This is John's first foray into the greatest hits world, so I'll cut him some slack. He probably could use it, too, seeing as how the once proud rocker of the 80s shrank in popularity in the 90s, and in the new millennium seems to be a footnote at best. Too bad, actually, as this set goes a long way toward demonstrating just how good his singles were. The songs hold up real well. This two-disc set hasn't got a weak track, culling everything from Jack And Diane to Small Town to the mega-hit Pink Houses.
