The Essential Dixie Chicks

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Appearing a few months after the budget-line Playlist, The Essential Dixie Chicks is the kind of comprehensive collection this trio deserves. Spanning 30 tracks over two discs, The Essential rounds up all of the Dixie Chicks' big hits but runs in reverse, opening with selections from 2006's Taking the Long Way, then running back through 2002's Home, 1999's Fly, and 1998's Wide Open Spaces. Some may grumble about the sequencing, but it flows nicely and has all the hits while illustrating the depth of the band's catalog, which is enough to make it as essential as billed.

    We have loved the Dixie Chicks for a long time. Love all these songs. I wish they were still actively touring and making music. I think they had a lot of years left in them for making great music. I hope they get back together soon.
