Greatest Hits 2

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - David Sprague
Although Bob Seger has been out of the spotlight for a number of years, this retrospective shows that the Motor City rocker hasn't lost any of his abundant heartland appeal. The 16-song set picks up where Seger's first hits collection left off, touching on both his plaintive balladeering best represented by the radio staple "Beautiful Loser" and his sly party groove evinced on the percolating "Shakedown". It's not exactly a chronological set, since it takes in both older rockers like "Katmandu" and more middle-of-the-road material, such as his duet with Martina McBride on the fireside classic "Chances Are," but it does make a nice companion piece for the multi-platinum...

Barnes & Noble - David Sprague
Although Bob Seger has been out of the spotlight for a number of years, this retrospective shows that the Motor City rocker hasn't lost any of his abundant heartland appeal. The 16-song set picks up where Seger's first hits collection left off, touching on both his plaintive balladeering best represented by the radio staple "Beautiful Loser" and his sly party groove evinced on the percolating "Shakedown". It's not exactly a chronological set, since it takes in both older rockers like "Katmandu" and more middle-of-the-road material, such as his duet with Martina McBride on the fireside classic "Chances Are," but it does make a nice companion piece for the multi-platinum first volume. Seger offsets the classics with a pair of new recordings -- his first in nearly eight years -- that fit nicely into the warm, slightly gruff tone of his latter-day work. The burnished "Satisfied" reflects its title well, with Seger's throaty musings chafing only slightly against a thick, smooth melody that's flecked with pastel guitars. "Tomorrow," on the other hand, is slightly more aggressive, with an insistent chiming melody that's not a million miles away from George Harrison's "Brainwashed." Sure, the bulk of Greatest Hits 2 is within easy reach of anyone in shouting distance of a classic rock radio station, but the taste of newer material alone is reason enough for any Seger supporter to dip into these grooves.
