Not very many artists have a chance to claim 3 greatest hits albums, nor have many had #1 hits spanning more than 20 years. However McEntire is one of those who has.

Logged deeply in many record books, Mcentire showcases many of her 90's hits on this decent collection.

From crowd pleasers-Why Haven't I Heard From You and Take It Back to the simply mellow And Still to the heart felt The Heart Won't Lie, McEntire showcases the best of a decade in this collection, adding three new songs.

I'm A Survivor, a moving tale of a woman who when all odds try to overpower her, takes it in stride, and builds strength and courage to move on.

Myself Without You, Never released as a single, a simple song about a women who realizes life can go forward without someone you love, and nothing in the world really changes, and that moving on, doesn't mean you never really loved someone.

Sweet Music Man, classic Kenny Rodgers song, given a Blue Grass tinge thanks to the great Alisson Krauss.

Highly recommended for anyone looking for a Reba hits package.

While Reba is busy with her WB Sitcom, they must have decided it was time for another Greatest Hits collection, Reba's third in this series. GREATEST HITS III: I'M A SURVIVOR spans most of her 90's hits, where GREATEST HITS VOLUME II left off. The album has 15 tracks, a generous helping of hits, 12 in all, and 3 new songs. The new songs actually work quite well. First is "I'm A Survivor", a Diane Warren penned song that is inspiring and also serves as the theme to her WB sitcom REBA. Then we have the ballad "Myself Without You", which is classic Reba. Then Reba pays homage to Waylon Jennings on the Kenny Rogers cover "Sweet Music Man", which was produced by Alison Krauss, maybe a hint towards what her next album will sound like, I sure wouldn't complain.
It would be impossible to include all the hits, so I understand, but I felt some of her more important hits could have been included, which is why I docked a star. 31 of her hits have not made it to a hits collection since she started doing them, so here's to hoping they all make it on future compilations. However you get some of the best here, such as early 90's hits like Fallin Out of Love", "The Night The Lights Went Out In Georgia", her duet with Vince Gill titled "The Heart Won't Lie" and the sassy "Take It Back. From her READ MY MIND album we have classics like "Why Haven't I Heard From You", "And Still", "She Thinks His Name Was John" and "The Heart is A Lonely Hunter". From WHAT IF IT'S YOU we have "The Fear of Being Alone". From her IF YOU SEE HIM album there is the duet with Brooks & Dunn "If You See Him/If You See Her", "One Honest Heart" and "Forever Love". Hits from SO GOOD TOGETHER didn't make it because its a general rule with Reba's collections that the album that came out prior to the release of the compilations, generally aren't included but saved for future ones.
There was room for more tracks, it would have been nice to see "Til You Love Me" (my favorite Reba song), "It's Your Call", "How Was I To Know", or maybe some songs from STARTING OVER (even though Reba has distanced herself from that project and the critics didn't like it, I think it was one of her finest moments). But perhaps later in her career we will receive more of these hits on future compilations. This is a worthy compilation to own for the avid Reba fan, or even the casual one, you can't lose.

This is an excellent CD and there are 15 songs, so you are not jipped, but I could not believe the songs since her GH II that were NOT on this CD:
"How Was I to Know", "I'd Rather Ride Around With You", "I'll Be", "What do you Say" and my favorite "Till You Love Me".
Reba has reached a point that she could easily fill up a 4 CD Boxed Set and I hope that is in the plans a few years from now.

This is a truly great album. Every aspect of it is positive. First of all, Reba has a beautiful and powerful voice. Second of all, all of theses songs are different and are all full of emotion
I'm a Survivor-a ballad about how she's overcame obstacles because she is a survivor. 4/5
Forever Love-a moving love ballad about how you will be with someone no matter what, beautiful vocal performance 5/5
The Heart is a Lonely Hunter-great, a well written story about a woman who wants love and is willing to do anything for it, great chorus and good lyrics 5/5
And Still-a sad ballad about meeting an old lover and still loving them. It is sad because her ex-lover turns out to be married. 4/5
If You See Him/If You See Her-a duet with Brooks and Dunn, very touching and heart-gripping 4.5/5
The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia-a mysterious song, tells a story about someone who is hung for a murder he didn't commit, catchy and one of the best 5/5
Fallin Out of Love-a sad ballad about having to let someone go because you don't love them 4/5
The Heart Won't Lie-a beautiful duet with Vince Gill, one of the best country duets 4.5/5
Take it Back-a sassy, jazz-influenced number about telling a cheating lover to take their love back, fun and upbeat 5/5
She Thinks His Name Was John-a very sad song about a woman who is dying from AIDS after she got it from a guy during a one-night stand. If teens listen to his, they will probably consider abstinence until marriage 4/5
The Fear of Being Alone-a good song about not rushing into loving someone just because you are alone and heartbroken 4.5/5
Why Haven't I Heard From You-like Take It Back, it is sassy and jazz influenced. It is about a woman asking why she hasn't heard from her man, even though he is perfectly able of communicatinng 4/5
One Honest Heart-a mid-tempo song about a womanho is looking for someone who will sty true to her and who has an honest heart 4/5
Myslef Without You-an empowering ballad about learning to love yoourself without your lover 4/5
Sweet Music Man-a good song and a cover from Kenny Rogers, I think. 4/5

I see a number of 1 star reviews for Reba's Greatest Hits Vol. III and most all those people seem to have as their gripe that this album isn't "country" enough, like Reba is some kind of a traitor to her "true" music. Well, I think it's up to the artist to decide what music he or she makes, and if Reba decides to alter things a bit, so what? In any event, it's not like this is some kind of radical deviation into a genre completely different from her 80s stuff. This is REba's stuff from the 90s and is still most definitely recognizable as country. Reba's voice is powerful as ever. The songs here center on Reba's vocals and storytelling. The best tunes:

Heart is a Lonely Hunter
Night the Lights Went out in Georgia
Take it Back
Why Haven't I Heard from You
One Honest Heart

Reba McEntire's compilations are always strange creatures because they are almost always incomplete in their coverage of her music. Like her previous greatest hits record, this one continues the practice of omitting previous hits, all the while including curious choices. And though it has it's share of fairly solid material, there is also alot to be said in the fact that 'She's Thinks His Name Was John'(included here)was her last really great record, as her albums have been increasingly focused instead on country pop/adult contemporary love ballads that don't always measure up to her considerable talents. Among the latter, 'Forever Love' is a major offender, as is the pure sap of 'The Heart Won't Lie'. And one of the new tracks, 'Myself Without You' also caters to this whim. Also unusual is the inclusion of only one track from her sterling WHAT IF IT'S YOU set('The Fear Of Being Alone'), despite the fact that that album also spun off 'I'd Rather Ride Around With You' and 'How Was I To Know', two of her biggest hits of the last decade(and made room for the inclusion of her borders-on-camp rendition of 'The Night The Lights Went Out In Georgia'). The remainder of the set is rounded out by solid numbers, chief among them the aforementioned 'John' and 'Fear', as well as 'And Still'(one of her better attempts at pop) and the new track 'I'm A Survivor'. Overall, an extremely generous collection with some minor omissions.

This CD has a lot of good older music. The songs that have been released on other albums were excellant.. Theother songs that which haven't been previously released were OK (in a so-so kinda way). The single I'm a Survivor, which has been released for a while is a catchy song, but the other new songs are nothing to write home about. This is a CD that you buy for the previously recorded songs, and not for the new ones.

I thought that this was a place to write reviews. Not snipe at other reviewers. If you don't like the album just say so. If you don't like the review, then don't read reviews by that reviewer. You don't have to say that they're malfunctioning or that they are children. No one has the exact same tastes in music. It's important to get both sides.
