Greatest Hits 2

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Toby Keith's Greatest Hits, Vol. 2 picks up where his first hits collection, 1998's Greatest Hits, Vol. 1, left off -- in 1999, when Keith signed to DreamWorks. Unfortunately, it doesn't cover everything Keith released between 1999's How Do You Like Me Now?! and Greatest Hits, Vol. 2's release in November 2004. It inexplicably bypasses his 2003 album Shock'n Y'All entirely, which means that number one hits "I Love This Bar," "American Soldier," and "Whiskey Girl" are nowhere to be found. Instead, there are three selections from his first three DreamWorks albums -- How Do You Like Me Now?!, 2001's Pull My Chain, and 2002's Unleashed -- adding three new recordings...

Instead, there are three selections from his first three DreamWorks albums -- How Do You Like Me Now?!, 2001's Pull My Chain, and 2002's Unleashed -- adding three new recordings plus live takes of "You Ain't Much Fun" and "Should've Been a Cowboy," which he originally cut for Mercury. This means this hits collection is far from complete, missing not just Shock'n Y'All, but smaller DreamWorks hits like "When Love Fades," and the new material doesn't quite make up for their absence, even if the straight-ahead "Go With Her" and the carnivalesque "Stays in Mexico" are enjoyable his update of the James Taylor/Carly Simon duet on Inez & Charlie Foxx's "Mockingbird," recorded with Krystal, is another matter entirely. So, Greatest Hits, Vol. 2 isn't as comprehensive or accurate as it should have been, but what is here is for the most part enjoyable, and a good way to get for casual fans to get most of his biggest hits of the 2000s in one place.

    A very funny parody

    Toby Keith does a really great job of satirizing country music in all its bone-headed, jingoistic glory. You almost believe he's serious! (But nobody can be that stupid.)

    MY FAVORITE COUNTRY SINGER

    I will definitely buy this CD. I have all his others and this is his best on one. The only song missing is I Love This Bar. I like what he has done in the last couple of years. His patriotic songs make me proud and he has funny ones that make me laugh in these stressful times. Way to go Toby!

    Why no songs from "Shock'n Y'all"?

    I am a huge Toby Keith fan and will buy this CD regardless, but I am very disappointed that none of the hits from "Shock'n Y'all" are included in this CD. Having "I Love This Bar", "Whisky Girl", and "American Soldier" would have made this a much better collection of his greatest hits from 1998 to present.

    HES THE GREATEST

    Toby has by far gotten better and better with each new CD. And I will own it as well as everyone I know. His music has a purpose and a meaning and is well worth listening to IF you have a soul...

    THANK YOU BUT NO THANK YOU

    Defintely something I will not be buying. Toby Keith has went downhill since 2000. Now he is just a cartoon of himself and defintely his music and his ego are not for me. He is too full of himself and his music shows it. Writing is medicore at best and his last album was the worst of his career. Maybe if he has a flop with this one it will wake him up and get him back to the great music he made prior to 2000. This one goes in the trash already know the hits on it and they are not worth having.
