2.0 out of 5 stars What A Sham January 5, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This collection had me foolishly thinking that this was all the Four Tops had to offer. Boy was I wrong, I heard It's The Same Old Song, I Believe In You And Me and other of the Tops hits and i felt cheated. I now have the Anthology which includes 48 songs. The two aforementioned songs as well as 'You Keep Running Away', 'River Deep, Mountain High', 'It's All In The Game' and all of their ABC/Dunhill hits like 'One Chain' and 'Are You Man Enough' are on the Anthology. Don't bother with this collection and get the Anthology.

3.0 out of 5 stars These Millenium Releases Are Just Teasers August 14, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I would love to have been a fly on the wall in the offices of Universal/Motown when they began putting the various releases in this series together eight or nine years ago. If only to hear explanations as to why some were to contain 11 tracks and others 12, and how they arrived at a consensus as to what constituted the "best" of the various artists. To be sure, by any standards applied, tracks 1, 3 to 6 and 10 and 11 have to be considered among the best of this R&B vocal group from Detroit who, from 1964 to 1988, put 45 songs into the Billboard Pop Hot 100, 52 onto the R&B charts, and seven on the Adult Contemporary (AC) listings.

But when it comes to tracks 2 and 7 to 9 there were four that were as good, or better, such as It's The Same Old Song (# 2 R&B/# 5 Hot 100 in August 1965), 7 Rooms Of Gloom (# 10 R&B/# 14 Hot 100 in June 1967), Keeper Of The Castle (# 7 R&B/# 10 Hot 100 late in 1972), and Are You Man Enough? (# 2 R&B/# 15 Hot 100 in late 1973). So, who decided that the fans had it wrong at the outset and that those hits should be omitted in favour of Ask The Lonely (# 9 R&B/# 24 Hot 100 in March 1965), Shake Me, Wake Me (When It's Over) (# 5 R&B/# 18 Hot 100 in March 1966), and If I Were A Carpenter (# 17 R&B/# 20 Hot 100 in June 1968)?

Not that there's anything wrong with those four. But if I'm deciding to present just 11 of their best, I would see to it that the contents at least reflected that claim. I would not go so far as to reduce the evaluation to 1, but I certainly cannot go higher than 3 in spite of the excellent sound quality, nice group photos, and the three pages of liner notes by Stu Hackel. For such a seminal 1960/1970s group as The Four Tops, a R&R Hall Of Fame inductee in 1990, an 11-track CD is merely a teaser. My advice it so spend a little bit more and get something with some substance.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Best of Four Tops May 10, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is an very good collection of the Four Tops songs I remember growing up in Motown in the 60's. Unfortunately, as with many albums that have been digitally remastered certain aspects of some songs such as the percussive "galloping" effect in the beginning of "Reach Out I'll Be There" don't sound quite right.
