Barnes & Noble - David McGee
From the git-go, Canada's much-honored Terri Clark has made a stand for country with guts and heart. These greatest hits including two new numbers and a live version of the title track of her most powerful album, Fearless prove that: the songs range from the fast and furious career starter, "Better Things to Do," to a dance hall barn burner, "Emotional Girl," which comes complete with pedal steel, fiddles, honky-tonk piano, a twangy guitar, and thumping percussion in a Texas-rules instrumental brawl. Then there's the tender, acoustic-fueled ballad, "Now That I Found You," and a righteously rocking take on Warren Zevon's "Poor, Pitiful Me." Of the new cuts, the ...

Barnes & Noble - David McGee
From the git-go, Canada's much-honored Terri Clark has made a stand for country with guts and heart. These greatest hits including two new numbers and a live version of the title track of her most powerful album, Fearless prove that: the songs range from the fast and furious career starter, "Better Things to Do," to a dance hall barn burner, "Emotional Girl," which comes complete with pedal steel, fiddles, honky-tonk piano, a twangy guitar, and thumping percussion in a Texas-rules instrumental brawl. Then there's the tender, acoustic-fueled ballad, "Now That I Found You," and a righteously rocking take on Warren Zevon's "Poor, Pitiful Me." Of the new cuts, the in-your-face propulsion of "Girls Lie Too" launches the song into a rock 'n' roll orbit with lyrics that answer male bravado "size don't matter anyway...we like Hooters for their hot wings, too...we can't wait to hear about your round of golf...", but it's all in good fun. "One of the Guys," echoes the Stones' "Honky Tonk Woman" in its stomping arrangement and finds Clark proudly trumpeting the masculine side of her femininity. Vocally, Clark can storm her way through a rocking arrangement and come right back with a sensitive, searching ballad performance that will take your breath away. It all adds up to a potent overview of a solid body of work, and whets the appetite for more.
All Music Guide - Jason MacNeil
Canadian singer Terri Clark is often compared to Shania Twain mainly because the two are Canadian, started around the same time, and began their careers in country music. But while Twain went on to uber status with a mainstream merging of country and pop and rock, Clark slowly built her career on Nashville's Music Row and its contemporary yet safe country sound. This collection featuring her better moments starts with "Better Things to Do," a standard country-pop tune that has the singer opening up vocally from the onset. The only thing that perhaps sets it apart is her ability to pull off the song effortlessly, as if she was born to do these songs. "When Boy Meets Girl" isn't all that different, although Clark carries it equally strong with the country-tinted Brooks & Dunn-like melody. Unfortunately, some of the tunes that are radio-friendly aren't always the greatest. This is true of the slower play-by-numbers country ballad "If I Were You" that is accented by the pedal steel guitar. But this is followed by a terrific cover of the late Warren Zevon's "Poor, Poor Pitiful Me" that suits her Western Canadian twang to a tee. The ebb and flow of the album takes another downturn with the poppy, up-tempo but rather bland "Emotional Girl," which sounds somewhat like a Carlene Carter B-side. Just when you think it's heading downhill she dusts herself off with the tight and catchy "You're Easy on the Eyes" and "I Wanna Do It All," both of which bring Mary Chapin Carpenter's early days to mind. This song takes on a roots groove as does "Everytime I Cry" which is introduced with a mandolin. Clark's niche is radio-friendly country music that never pushes the envelope judging by "I Just Wanna Be Mad" that falls alongside Toby Keith's material. The collection concludes with a well-crafted "Girls Lie Too" and a live version of "No Fear." It's the first of perhaps several good collections to come.

    new or old, its amazing

    Whether your a new Terri Clark fan or an old one this is a great CD. Released while "Girls Lie Too" was topping the charts the CD shows the listener what else Ms Clark was up to. It has her early hits from the beginning of her career and her most recent. I loved the Live version of NO FEAR... though that song was a comcercial flop, the live showcase of it shows how much the fans love it and how inspiring it can be.

    Awesome CD!!

    I loved this CD. All of her hits on one CD. My favorite Terri Clark song-Girls Lie Too and a couple new ones I haven't heard. One of the Guys was a really good song and the rest of the songs are awesome.
