With an angelic tenor voice, it is probably unavoidable that Collin Raye would emphasize love songs on all of his albums. But as this "best of" makes quite clear on number like his breakthrough hit "Love, Me" and the poignant "In This Life," that isn't necessarily a bad thing. No other man in country is better at crooning about love than Raye. This set also contains some of Raye's rowdier smashes ("That's My Story," "Little Red Rodeo," "My Kind Of Girl") amidst the sentiment for much needed balance. Additionally, Raye has proven adept at messages songs like "Little Rock" (alcoholism) and "I Think About You" (domestic violence) that rank among the most substantial recordings put out in the country genre during the '90s.
I rate 16 BIGGEST HITS as the strongest Raye retrospective - stronger even than DIRECT HITS - for a number of reasons. It includes two more tracks for starters. Every single here was also a top 10 hit, whereas a few recordings on DIRECT HITS like "The Gift" and "Open Arms," while great, did not even crack the top 30. This collection also includes hits throughout Raye's tenure at Sony, including such gems as "I Can Still Feel You," "Couldn't Last A Moment," and "Someone You Used To Know" which came out after DIRECT HITS in 1997. Finally, this cd includes my favorite uptempo Raye hit "On The Verge," a # 2 smash inexplicably left off DIRECT HITS even though it predated that set. So, if you haven't already, get this disc today!

I had to give it 3 stars because I am a huge Collin Raye fan. All these songs are excellent songs, and Mr. Raye is an awesome artist and performer, but this is just another last ditch, feeble attempt by Sony Epic records to make a buck off an artist that is no longer under contract to them. They released "Superhits" last spring and now this one after Collin had left them. There are now 3 greatest hits CDs with basically the same songs on them. If you are a Collin Raye fan, support him by not supporting Epic records.

This album showcases Collin Raye's amazing tenor to the fullest. Hits like "Love Me," "Little Rock," "My Kind of Girl," "Not That Different," and "I Can Still Feel You" are featured on this brilliant album. Raye's vocals are well done, as is the song selection. Most of the songs are ballads, Raye's specialty. If you are a fan of Collin Raye, then this album is a must-have.

I bought this cd because there were already rave reviews about it, and also because of the first song on the cd, "Love, Me." There are two others that I already loved; "That's My Story", and "I think about you." I am enjoying the rest of the songs as well. It is the kind of cd you want to sing along with and learn all the words.

What can I say about this exceptional singer except he has a pure voice, wonderful selections, and this album contains so many great hits that it is a must buy. Amazon makes it easy and affordable.

Colling Raye is a talented singer. There is good variety of songs on this CD. Everything is as was supposed to be by the company selling it. We have listened to it several times already.
