American Anthems [Sony]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
CMG's triple-disc set American Anthems is a weird hodgepodge of songs about America, songs from American rockers, songs from British rockers, songs from Canadian rockers, songs that are staples on album rock radio, songs that were big on adult contemporary charts in the '90s, and songs that reached the country charts recently, plus a couple songs that were never really hits in the first place.
