All Music Guide - Steve Huey
Vanilla Ice is one of those artists whose best moments are widely considered indefensible, and many listeners will be satisfied with having "Ice Ice Baby" on a various-artists compilation for the nostalgia and/or kitsch value. For those who want a bigger extract ha! of Vanilla's career, The Best of Vanilla Ice offers ten tracks that summarize things pretty effectively. There's one major selection drawback, namely that the hit version of "Play That Funky Music" is replaced by a live performance, but if you want it badly enough to buy a Vanilla Ice album, there's always To the Extreme.

Vanilla Ice is one of those artists whose best moments are widely considered indefensible, and many listeners will be satisfied with having "Ice Ice Baby" on a various-artists compilation for the nostalgia and/or kitsch value. For those who want a bigger extract ha! of Vanilla's career, The Best of Vanilla Ice offers ten tracks that summarize things pretty effectively. There's one major selection drawback, namely that the hit version of "Play That Funky Music" is replaced by a live performance, but if you want it badly enough to buy a Vanilla Ice album, there's always To the Extreme. So what's here that isn't on his one big album? Quite a bit, actually. You get "Ninja Rap," his oddly anthemic theme to one of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies; a non-LP version of "Satisfaction" whose samples are typically obvious and straightforward; the theme to Ice's movie, "Cool as Ice Everybody Get Loose"; "Rollin' in My 5.0," the new track from Extremely Live; and "Roll 'Em Up," the calculated, Cypress Hill-style ode to marijuana from 1994's Mind Blowin, which failed to reinvent him for the hardcore set. So if To the Extreme captures Vanilla Ice the short-lived pop phenomenon, The Best of Vanilla Ice also covers the misfires that sped up his already rapid decline and fall.

    v.i.p,never to be forgotton

    Regardless of what has been said bout the ice man,he has done something we all dream of doing,and he has lived the dream,even though trouble has followed him,let me put it into context,a world wide number one with ice ice baby,and was folloewd up with a second hit after that,offerd one milliond dollors to star in a film[cool as ice]which took in less than he was paid.I could go on for a while but tjat says it all,and yes he may of sold out for the money in some ways,but less face it if iwas asked to wear a pear of funky trousers for two hundred grand and all sorts,i certainly would not turn that down and nor would any sane person.And how did he no he was gonna fall of the face of the earth and be booted like a dog every where he went.
