Editorial Reviews

The slinky R&B sound of female harmony group Destiny's Child gives way to Martin's pumped-up rhythmic syncopation. The Spanish-language slow jams of Son By 4 lead almost seamlessly into alt-rocker Shawn Mullins' power-ballad "Lullaby." The fact that many of the cuts here are radio edits, as opposed to album versions, just serves to further create a kind of virtual-Top 40 radio experience for the listener.

Sony's entry in the Now and Totally Hits series is a mixed or should I say remixed blessing. Whereas the Now and (99%) of the Totally Hits series have been the original hits, Sony has decided to throw in some inferior remixes on their outing. So, Destiny's Child, Maxwell and the Jessica Simpson song have been remixed and are sure to remind of you of how much better the original mixes were. There are good tracks here: Blaque, Mary Mary, Madison Avenue and Chicane w/Bryan Adams are great singles. But why did Sony have to include old songs by Lauryn Hill, Shawn Mullins and Ricky Martin? Overall a mixed blessing. Buy it only if you are looking for some good singles from mediocre albums.

After the incredible success of both the "Now That's What I Call Music" and "Totally Hits" packages released by rival music companies, Sony has decided to enter the market with their own ALL-HITS compilation. Rather than the 'cover-every-genre' variety of the competition, they have decided to concentrate on very up-tempo hi-NRG pop. No trace of alternative, hard rock, pseudo-country or ballads here.
But since Sony doesn't have a big teen act like NSync, BSB or Britany, they are forced to combine a number on second-level stars (Jessica Simpson, Marc Anthony, Son By Four) who wouldn't sell out arenas, with older hits by artist who could (Will Smith, Lauryn Hill, Ricky Martin) and a number of acts that they obviously have hopes for (Chicane - a very popular European dance remixer, Mary Mary - a gospel act who don't sound in the least churchy, Madison Avenue - an Australian duo who made #1 in England, Lara Fabian - Celine Dion's replacement while she's on maternity break) but have yet to prove themselves on the chart.
This is the kind of album you get your niece (not your nephew) for her 14th birthday because you don't know what she really likes. She won't be disappointed, but she's won't jump up and down either.
As an alternative, I would suggest the import album "Now That's What I Call Music 46", an import from England that costs about the same per track but has a wider and fresher variety of today's pop music. Use the Amazon Search and look for "Now 46".
Your niece will thank you.

Over the last few months I've been buying compilations such as "Platinum Hits 2000". I've been doing this for two reasons. I primarily buy these to find great songs by various artists (whose albums I don't want to buy). I also buy these to avoid higher prices and DRM online.

After listening to the album, I have noticed a few things. The first is the time span. One could assume from the title that these songs were all released in 2000. This, however, is not the case. Roughly speaking, the songs on the album were released from 1998 to 2000 with Lauryn Hill's 1998 hit "Doo Wop (That Thing)" being the oldest track. While the title proclaims these songs as hits, it appears this is debatable. For example, Destiny's Child, Marc Anthony, and Shawn Mullins (among others) had a top 40 (and in some cases, a top ten) hit. Others, such as Will Smith, Madison Avenue, and Chicane didn't come close to the top 40.

Now for the songs themselves. My favorites are Blaque's "Bring It All to Me", Madison Avenue's "Don't Call Me Baby", Spender's "I Think God Can Explain", Chicane's "Don't Give Up", and Mary Mary's "Shackles (Praise You)". The worst songs are Jagged Edge's "Let's Get Married", Will Smith's "Freakin' It", Lil' Bow Wow's "Bounce With Me", and Jessica Simpson's "I Wanna Love You Forever". When it comes to Jagged Edge, they sound like a weak Jodeci clone. Will Smith's track here is weak compared to his other hits solo or his earlier work with DJ Jazzy Jeff. It sees him bragging about his money, cars, and wife. He also compares himself to Bill Gates which does not help him. "Bounce With Me" is just plain bad and "I Wanna Love You Forever" proves that Simpson cannot sing. One thing that annoys me about this album is the abundance of remixes.

This CD is not horrible but isn't great either. I got it cheap so I'm not complaining about it. It has some really good songs and also some mediocre remixes like the Jessica Simpson and Destiny's Child one. The Jagged Edge song is a slowed-down version and not the one played on the radeo. I think the good outways the bad but only slightly.
