Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
In 2001, not long after Faith Hill became an international superstar, European markets were treated to There You'll Be: The Best of Faith Hill, a 15-track collection that brought new listeners up to speed on Hill's American hits. Six years later, Hill had her first American compilation released. Simply titled The Hits, this 2007 set weighs in at 15 tracks, the same length as There You'll Be, but it does cover more ground, as Faith released two albums (2002's Cry and 2005's Fireflies) in the time separating the two compilations. That means this has two big hits not heard on the previous set -- 2002's "Cry" and 2006's "Mississippi Girl" -- along with a live version of "Stronger" and the new song "Red Umbrella." It's not just that The Hits has these new songs, but the rest of the record skews a little bit closer to Hill's country roots than her international comp (in other words, there's no "Over the Rainbow" here and no remixes), which makes this better suited for an American audience, and also a better compilation overall, as this captures Hill at her best as a country-pop singer and an adult contemporary diva.

This CD was a great recap of the 15 year career of Faith Hill's music. It combines just the right mix of the old and the new. The new songs, Red Umbrella and Lost are sure to be #1's. It also includes another outstanding Timand Faith duet. Don't miss it.

This CD is packed full of Faith's powerful #1 hits! She also included a bonus of her newest singles: "Red Umbrella," "Lost," and duet with McGraw, "I Need You." "Stronger" will turn any critic into an instant Faith Hill fan with the raw talent heard only on a live cut. She has put a great compliation together for fans that have been with her from the "Take Me As I Am" to the "Fireflies" albums and anyone who has joined anywhere in between. Your CD collection is not complete without this album!

Hit, after hit, after hit! The hits just keep rolling in for Faith Hill and this album WILL be a hit too! Faith did a great job composing some of her best songs! They all mean something to Faith and helped her gain her status of where she is at today! I love that she included the live version of "Stronger" If you have never heard a Faith song before, this is a great CD for you to learn some of her greatest songs and if you get the DVD watch them too! Really expresses and shows who Faith is as a person and as an artist! For us long-time fans, this is a great way too reflect on the past fifteen years and hear some old songs! I highly encourage you to purchase this CD! Great Music, Great Meaning, and Great Fun! My CD is tired from spinning around in the player so many times! I have not stopped playing this CD :D! Congratulations Faith on your success and keep the hits coming!

One of the best Greatest Hits albums ever! Faith is so inspiring! Well worth the wait! It won't be leaving my cd player for a long time! Thanks Faith, your fans really enjoy it!

Faith is one of the most honest, beautiful artists in country music today. Her career has a span of 15 years, and she is still going strong. If you are a new Faith fan, this album is a good place to start, as it showcases all her style changes throughout the years. It also includes a live version of "Stronger" which is where Faith really shines. If you want to hear something new, "Lost" and "Red Umbrella" are both catchy tunes that have believable lyrics. If you have been a Faith fan for many years, here is a great album for you to pop in, and be reminded of why you became a fan in the first place! Keep it coming, Faith!

THis CD is so amazing. The song selection is wonderful. Faith has really outdone herself with her 2 new tracks. The live version of "stronger" is to die for and I keep listening to it on repeat... it blows me away every time!

Having basically every song recorded by Faith and then some, some might think that a Hits album would not be necessary for me to purchase. However, Faith’s latest single Red Umbrella is a solid and wonderful addition to this record. It’s an uplifting song that can’t help cheering me up at anytime of the day. To add a live version of Stronger from her very successful Soul2Soul tour was a wonderful bonus. This song is amazingly soulful and truly shows the depth of her talent. There is something to be said of a Hits compilation which can take many of us back down memory lane and also expose a new generation to music that expanded the country music genre to so many who would otherwise dismiss it. Get this album!! It’s a wonderful start/addition to your Faith Hill Collection. :"

This is by far, one of the best albums out there...I absolutely can't stop listening to it...It has so many great hits on it and every time I listen to it, it brings me back to 15 years ago when a little girl from Star, Mississippi was just beginning to come into the spotlight...My how the times fly

When i went to go rate this CD i couldnt find the one that said "OUT OF THIS WORLD!" Okay but this CD is a MUST HAVE!!! Faith Hill did a wonderful job selecting the right hits! From her first big break "Wild One" to her two newest singles and even an extra special version of her soulful song "Stronger", you just cant get any better than that!! SO please, dont waste any more time and GO GET YOURSELF A COPY!!! and dont forget to grab one for your friend! They deserve it!!! ]

Like millions of others, I was first introduced to Faith Hill’s music during the late 90’s. I was in high school during this time and remember hearing “This Kiss” and “Wild One” in heavy rotation on the radio. My late foster mother loved country music a lot and played it heavily at home, which was how I first heard of Faith Hill. She also caught my attention with her “Breathe” song and her happy union with Tim McGraw. My husband had played Tim McGraw’s greatest hits cd for me to hear when we first met. This shaped my natural progression to me purchasing this collection by Faith Hill. The only caveat I have with this collection is the listed order. For example,”Wild One” is pictured as #14 and “I Need You” is listed as #15. However, my cd plays “Wild One” as #15 and “I Need You” as #3. “This Kiss”,”Breathe”,”The Way You Love Me”, and “Piece Of My Heart” are some of the many strong tracks on this cd. I take “Piece Of My Heart” to be a dignified remake of the Janis Joplin original. “Faith Hill: The Hits” is a great choice for those who enjoy country rock.
