The Greatest Hits Collection II

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - David McGee
On the second installment of their biggest hits, line-dancing duo Brooks & Dunn heat up the dance floor with more of their trademark barn burners, blending hard country, rock, and western swing with a yearning ballad here and there for the buckle polishers read: slow dancers in the crowd. Of the 17 tracks here, 14 are bona fide smash hits, while the other three are new offerings -- indeed, one of those, the steaming, Stones-y rocker "That's What It's All About," has already taken its place among the hits. But the familiar chart-toppers are about as formidable as they get in contemporary country, from the twang-heavy breakup laments "How Long Gone" and "I'll Never ...

Barnes & Noble - David McGee
On the second installment of their biggest hits, line-dancing duo Brooks & Dunn heat up the dance floor with more of their trademark barn burners, blending hard country, rock, and western swing with a yearning ballad here and there for the buckle polishers read: slow dancers in the crowd. Of the 17 tracks here, 14 are bona fide smash hits, while the other three are new offerings -- indeed, one of those, the steaming, Stones-y rocker "That's What It's All About," has already taken its place among the hits. But the familiar chart-toppers are about as formidable as they get in contemporary country, from the twang-heavy breakup laments "How Long Gone" and "I'll Never Forgive My Heart" to the rousing reminiscence of childhood glories and passages "Red Dirt Road"; from the pair's acoustic-based treatment of Roger Miller's poignant philosophical musings on wedded bliss gone sour, "Husbands and Wives," to the self-explanatory hard country sizzler "You Can't Take the Honky Tonk Out of the Girl" with more Stones references from, appropriately, "Honky Tonk Woman". The two other new tracks -- "It's Getting Better All the Time," a Springsteen-like ballad about heartbreak, work, and recovery, and "Independent Trucker," a pulsating paean to the big rigger, featuring a gnarly lead vocal by Kix Brooks -- figure to find their way onto another hits disc somewhere down the line. Keep 'em coming, B&D. We can take it.
All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Brooks & Dunn's Greatest Hits Collection, Vol. 2 picks up where their first hits compilation left off: in 1998, with the album If You See Her, and runs until 2004, when Vol. 2 was released. During this time, the duo's popularity never waned, although the quality of their output fluctuated a little bit, before they made an artistic comeback in the early 2000s, culminating with the fine 2003 album, Red Dirt Road. Greatest Hits, Vol. 2 camouflages this erratic output by concentrating on their biggest hits from this era, adding three solid new songs to the mix. This doesn't contain all their hits from these six years -- singles like "Beer Thirty" and "You'll Always Be Loved By Me" are missing -- but it does contain such big hits as "Husbands and Wives," "I Can't Get Over You," "Ain't Nothing 'Bout You" and "Only in America," which makes this a more consistent listen. While some of those smaller hits are indeed missed, the hits on this fine compilation are enough to provide an accurate overview of this stint of Brooks & Dunn's career, and will likely satisfy most of their fans.
