All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
The Complete Greatest Hits is an awkward title, but it's more or less accurate. Less because there are two new recordings here ("World of Light," "Paradise") at the end that couldn't qualify as hits. More because it does contain all of the group's greatest hits, from their Warner recordings from the '70s ("A Horse With No Name," "Tin Man," "Ventura Highway," "Lonely People," and "Sister Golden Hair") to their smooth recordings for Capitol in the early '80s ("You Can Do Magic," "The Border").

    Greatest Hits Repackaged with 2 New tracks

    I am a HUGE America fan and have all their cds including the Beckley, Lamm & Wilson cd. That being said, I can say the strength of this album is getting to hear the last two tracks. Both have the solid America vocals we have come to love and solid lyrics to play with. Other than those tracks, the more acoustic version of Everyone I Meet Is From California and the California Dreamin' cuts are well placed in an album that for all intents and purposes is History re-released. If you like America's classic tracks and are one of the few folks who doesn't own one of the greatest hits compilations, this is a great disk for you. If you want more, get the Highway box set, which captures all the moods of America. The absence of From A Movin Train may bother some, but after all it is from their latest effort and is still warm in most of our collections.

    The Magic of America's Greatest Hits

    America's Greatest Hits contain a mix of life themes that are relatable for many people. Of course, the following well-known hits are on this collection such as: "A Horse With No Name," "Ventura Highway," and "You Can Do Magic". "A Horse With No Name" is an interesting musical tale with vivid descriptive imagery. "Ventura Highway" appears to be about life transitions. "You Can Do Magic" is about a woman who brings healing and positive energies to the singer's life. However, I also enjoyed the following songs that have fun-loving themes: "World of Light," "Paradise," and "Woman Tonight." "World of Light" symbolizes a happy message of unity. "Paradise" is a good musical gem about living in a place that evokes a sense of peace and optimism. "Woman Tonight" is a daring song about someone being asked to be a "night companion." America's Greatest Hits are suitable for the many who enjoy classic rock music.
