All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
In some ways, The Very Best of Aaron Neville is a very welcome addition to his catalog, since it's the first collection to touch on all areas of Neville's long career. However, it winds up being a bit unsatisfying, not just because it only has one cut from the Neville Brothers, but because his New Orleans R&B and down-home soul just don't fit that well with his smooth, cleanly produced latter-day work. Then again, the compilers didn't spend too much time with the early recordings, since the collection contains only a handful of R&B nuggets including, of course, "Tell It Like It Is," plus "Over You" before settling into the '80s and '90s albums.

It's not a bad summary of those albums, actually, containing such hits as "Don't Know Much" and "Everybody Plays the Fool," plus a good cross-section of album tracks and lesser-known cuts, such as his version of "Stardust" with Rob Wasserman. As such, The Very Best of Aaron Neville is recommended primarily to fans of his later recordings. Listeners who prefer the early R&B work or the Neville Brothers should look to compilations of that material, since they won't be satiated by this disc.

    The Very Best Of Aaron Neville Is The Very Best

    The Very Best of Aaron Neville cd is indeed the very best.It brings fond memories of riding down the highway in my convertible corvette with my then boyfriend arguing over some long forgotten problem and having the beautiful voice of Aaron Neville coming over the radio saying if you want something to play with go and find yourself a toy and us looking at each other and falling out in laughter as it seemed so on the nose of what we were arguing over at that time.And how can you not love the upbeat song Over You,even if it is about long black cadillacs, funeral homes and slow marching relatives?

    Speechless

    Aaron is performing at his best on this album. His music should remind us all of this New Orleanian's contribution to our truly American music, R&B, jazz, country, etc.
