To say that Martina McBride has an amazing voice is a gross understatement. I can't find the words to describe Martina's vocal ability except to say that it is second to none. This cd contains 13 of her greatest hits including 4 #1's, 1 song that she always thought should be a single and 4 new songs. Those 4 new songs are as good as anything she's ever done and that's saying something. "Where Would You Be", in my opinion, is her best vocal performance to date, "Concrete Angel" proves that she can perform a song without belting it out and still convey the feeling, this is one of the saddest songs i've ever heard and Martina conveys that message beautifully, "Blessed" is a great song and Martina does a great job. I've heard her say that this song could have been written just for her about her life and "When God Fearin Women Get the Blues" is fun and sassy with alot of what I like to call "Martina Attitude" and it proves that Martina belongs in the country genre. The 4 new songs alone are worth the price of the cd and the fact that Martina is donating a portion of the first month's sales to the disaster relief effort proves that her heart is as big as her voice. Thank you Martina for being the class act that you are. I am proud to be a fan.

Martina sings both happy and social issue songs equally excellent. She shoots the best videos and chooses the best songs to sing. She recently released her first Greatest Hits album and this is how I rate each song.
"My Baby Loves Me": good... a very sweet and happy song. (5 stars)
"Life #9": great... an up-tempo song, full of country dancing and two-stepping. (5 stars)
"Independence Day": Martina's career hit... an excellent song against domestic violence and can be used for patriotic purposes. (5 stars)
"Strangers": I love this song... but I am sad Martina never released it as a single. However, I'm glad she included it in this collection. (5 stars)
"Safe in the Arms of Love": a very cool sounding record, the background vocals are amazing, Martina's voice rules and it really is "pure ear candy."
"Wild Angels": nice... Martina's first #1 song and an overall very happy song. Just like a cartoon. (5 stars)
"Valentine": a love ballad well sung by Martina, perfect for all weddings. She duets this song with guest artist, pianist, Jim Brickman. (5 stars)
"Broken Wing": what a beautiful song... I love how Martina holds the last note 'fly' for 12 seconds!!! (5 stars)
"Happy Girl": another up-tempo song, has real nice melody, shows the 'happy side' of Martina. (5 stars)
"Wrong Again": I love this... it has a different chorus every time, nice background vocals, an overall a strong vocal performance by Martina. (5 stars)
"Whatever You Say": wow... I still remember the vocal performance Martina did on the 1999 ACM awards of this song and I am blown away. I am in awe of such determination.

Martina's songs speak volumes and this CD is truly a must-have. It is everything a greatest hits record should be - all of her biggest hits (where is "It's my Time"???) neatly packaged, along with a handful of new songs. Martina and producer Paul Worley offer cut-by-cut comments as well.

The new material is just incredible! "Blessed" (written by Troy Verges), reunites Martina with former backup singer Carolyn Dawn Johnson, who just 'makes' the track. The CD version of "God Fearin' Women" is longer than most radio stations played and well worth the price of the CD for the intro. "Concrete Angel" is the story of a little girl lost and is akin to John Michael Montgomery's "The Little Girl". "Where Would You Be" is a Martina trademark song, wondering about love, but in a way that real women do.

The already released material is all great, Martina's powerful breakout hit "Independence Day", the somewhat trite "I Love You", my favorite "Wild Angels" and "Love's the Only House". Martina truly has one of the best voices in country music right now, as evidenced in "Broken Wing", it is so real it will give you chills!

Possessed of one of the most compelling voices in the genre of country music, Martina McBride is also one of the few artists in that particular genre to give us a steady output of consistently excellent material, as this compilation attests to. She's also that rare breed that can gravitate successfully between serious subject matter('Independence Day', 'Love's The Only House') and more lightweight fare('I Love You', 'My Baby Loves Me')with relative ease. Though she does latch on to an occasional clunker--the sappy 'Wrong Again' ranks among her absolute worst, despite being a #1 single--for the most part she's spot-on. The four new tracks continue that trend. 'When God-Fearin' Women Get The Blues' is somewhat atypical for McBride in comparison to her recent, more pop-oriented material, but the honky-tonker is a welcome respite from the pop fluff saturating country radio.
'Where Would You Be' is a sterling ballad, featuring a typically first-rate vocal performance. 'Blessed' is the least essential of the new tracks, though it's still a solid uptempo number. Which brings us to 'Concrete Angel', a stark ballad focusing on
child abuse that continues McBride's crusade to convey relevant social messages through song. Though not as subtle as, say Suzanne Vega's 'Luka', it's still a stunning work that may be far too sophisticated and adult for the narrow boundaries of country radio. As good a collection of songs as you'll find anywhere, from an artist who continues to astonish.
