Best of Hilary Duff

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
The cover shot on Best of Hilary Duff is as gorgeous, grown-up, and sexy as Hilary Duff has ever been -- and has absolutely nothing to do with any hit single that she's ever had. When Hilary has climbed the charts, it's been through light, fizzy teen pop, the kind of single that fuels Radio Disney, but now that she's in her twenties, Duff wants to leave that image behind, so 2008's Best of Hilary Duff skews toward sleek, almost sultry club beats as older, fluffier hits like "Come Clean" are given a sensual electronic makeover. In that sense, this best-of is the flip side of 2005's Most Wanted, which was pitched squarely at bright, happy tweens. Apart from the ...

In that sense, this best-of is the flip side of 2005's Most Wanted, which was pitched squarely at bright, happy tweens. Apart from the galumphing neo-Max Martin beat of "So Yesterday," there's nary a hint of that younger Duff on this best-of, which kind of makes it the opposite of what a hits compilation should be: it's not a look back at the past but a blueprint for the future, which isn't quite what listeners want or need from a best-of, but it's not bad for what it is.

    Best Of Hilary Duff.

    Although 3 years before this album was released, "Most Wanted" came out, that was a mistake, but this album is great. Holiday, and Stranger, are great tracks.

    ms. duff grows up

    while i do applaud hilary's efforts to try to become a serious artist including the cover however i dont think she should release a greatest hits yet because she has not really had stable music career. Her audience throughout her career has been marketed at tweens and towards adult audiences she's had one hit with "With Love". This album is filled with Hilary's hits throughout her 7 year music career and Reach Out which Hilary remade sounds like a girl trying to be grown and the video is a clear move from her Lizzie Mcguire days but Ms. Duff still has more to bring to the table to be taken seriously as a musician and an actress
