One of the best greatest hits albums ever,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Greatest Hits - Chapter One (Audio CD)
Hit after hit after hit song, with absolutely no filler to be found. Usually greatest hits collections (from any era) include some lesser hits or even some strong album tracks just to help fill out the collection, but not here. On top of that, all these songs are still played around the clock on radio today. Not the type of hits that are forgotten once they leave the charts. Pretty impressive. Obviously, 10 years of making pop music was not wasted on this woman. Plus, there's three new diverse recordings that are top-of-the-line Clarkson. In light of this very impressive collection, I would proclaim Kelly Clarkson the Queen of 21st Century Pop.

I'd also proclaim Clarkson as the modern queen of pop.

i don't know how to describe what i mean but she has the most 'satisfying'? way of singing.. as far as the tone or pitch.. I like some of Taylor Swift's music as well as Carrie Underwood.. they're both good singers but in listening to Taylor's music i'm constantly trying to 'will' her to somehow sing more in tune even on the CD.. it's an odd habit I have in needing music to be in tune.. Carrie is a great singer but the sound of much of her music sounds like it's sung through her nose if you know what I mean.. with Kelly's music however.. the red 'editing' flags never go off.. she's in tune perfectly the entire time and nothing has to be changed... I find myself wishing she could cover some of the other singers' songs that i like..

nysnowbird92-You have put into words what I could not. It's not a comparison of popularity but of voices. I feel the exact way as you about Carrie Underwood. I think Kelly could easily cover Carrie's music but not the other way around. Kelly is the best "in tune" singer I've heard since Barbara Streisand. If Carrie weren't so likeable, I might not favor her so much.
To anybody who feels the need to come to the defense of Taylor Swift or Carrie Underwood...no offense offered.

perfect example is 'I know you won't' on Carrie's 'Carnival Ride' cd.. her and Taylor have this certain filtered sound that comes out when they force out a louder sound.. i've never heard that with Kelly.. when she sings louder it comes deep from within and is just powerful.. i like the other singers, I just have this musical editing board in my head that always seeks to turn some knobs when it hears something 'off'.. I meant Kelly is satisfying because I never have that happen listening to her music.. I can just listen and not imagine it sounded better...

I know what you mean. Near the end of "Mr. Know-It-All" Kelly sings a lyric with sustain that showcases the beauty and power of her voice. She's utterly believable when she does that.
Ironic. I have a tendency to turn off my music source after I've listened to her for a while. Who else would I listen to? She's a hard act to follow.
