5.0 out of 5 stars Ten years of great pop-country music 8 Dec 2002
By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Martina's career started slowly as her first album (The time has come) did not sell in vast quantities. I did buy it - and I've been a huge fan of Martina's music ever since. Fortunately for me, Martina's second album contained Independence day, the song which really launched her career and ensured that she could continue to record high-quality music, culminating in this Greatest hits collection, which contains all the essentials.
Martina has a big voice and uses it to great effect on all types of song. Many of her hits are upbeat, happy songs, typical of modern country music. There are still people who think country music is full of sad songs with not much cheer - such people should listen to some modern country - very different from the way things once were.
Happy girl (from her fourth album, Evolution, the one that really confirmed her as a major star) is not only typical of the songs Martina records - it also describes herself. Other great upbeat songs include I love you, My baby loves me and Whatever you say. Even in modern country, there is still room for the occasional sad song, represented here by Concrete angel and Love is the only house. Despite these songs, the overall feel of the album is upbeat. Stranger was not released as a single, but has become popular with fans, so it was included instead of Cheap whiskey, a minor hit from her first album. It's a pity they didn't include both.
Martina made some of the best pop-country music of the nineties and had some success in the American pop charts while maintaining her credibility with country fans.

4.0 out of 5 stars More than "Independence Day" 19 Jan 2002
Format:Audio CD
I heard "Independence Day" on television and knew straight away that I had to own it. But I'm by no means a fan of country music, so I didn't have high hopes for the rest of the album. What a pleasant surprise it's turned out to be! The contemporary style is easy on the ear, even if you've never been within a thousand miles of Nashville, and Martina McBride's voice is superb. Most of the album is unchallenging, upbeat and straightworward music (and there's nothing wrong with that!) but a few tracks are subtler and darker -- thrown into even sharper relief by the generally happy tone. Try it, you might like it :-)

I love Martina McBride-so naturally I cannot recommend this hits collection enough!!
It contains everything from her early big songs like Independence Day,My Baby Loves Me,the powerful A Broken Wing,Safe In The Arms Of Love and her first no.1 Wild Angels, to her more contemporary songs like Where Would You Be,Concrete Angel,I Love You,When God Fearin' Women Get The Blues,Blessed and her excellent socially conscious hit Loves The Only House.
If your new to country music or to Martina then this cd is a must to start you off.You will not be disappointed.
She released this cd in 2001, and believe me the hits haven't stopped here.Since this album she's made some more fantastic albums and is still notching up more huge hits to add to her next collection....

Martina McBride has certainly give Dolly Parton a run for her money over the past years as she points evidently at being one of the best country singers of all time. Boasting 5 no#1's and many more top 10 singles, this album is stuffed with roar quality! A fantastic collabaration of hits, and here's how they show:
1. My Baby loves me - 10/10 - A true country cheer up song with cheery lyrics throughout. A great hit with Martina's voice at it's ever best!
2. Life #9 - 10/10 - Great western tune with true country lyrics, you just want it to keep going. Great song.
3. Independence Day - 10/10 - A controversial phenomena with superb vocal and expressionate power from Martina. One of my favourites and a great version cover by Carrie Underwood(American Idol 4 winner)
4. Strangers - 10/10 - A beautiful ballad with amazing vocals from Martina. Great instrumental fading i noticed, really adds something to the song.
5. Safe in the arms of love - 10/10 - Another true western feel good which i personally love. Uplifting and understanding, great vocals too!
6. Wild Angels - 10/10 - Controversial once again, but still fab! I didn't know what to think of it at first, but the more you listen to it the more it sticks to you. Good
7. Valentine - 10/10 - This duet with Jim Brickman is really emotional and beautiful. Martina's voice sends shivers down your spine in this song. Beautiful
8. A Broken Wing - 10/10 - Another one of my favourites, but the great thing about this song is you don't need a video to picture it, it's pure and simple, and overall fab!
9. Happy Girl - 10/10 - A great country song with fantastic lyrics. I love this song personally, a great sing-a-long once you grasp the words!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Variety of Martina McBride Hits 28 Jan 2011
Format:Audio CD
Martina really put much emotion and creativity into her songs. Some of my favorite songs by her on this cd are "My Baby Loves Me," "Independence Day", "Wild Angels", "Valentine", and "Happy Girl". "My Baby Loves Me" is a catchy musical number of someone being appreciated for her natural beauty (the guitar notes used in the song are notable). "Independence Day" is about a very young person who endures a challenging childhood to eventually start a new life. "Wild Angels" is a beautiful song about being watched over with the results of good luck. "Valentine" is a gorgeous song about enduring love. My overall favorite song in this greatest hits collection definitely had to be "Happy Girl" because it serves as an upbeat reminder to find anything to be joyful about regardless of external circumstances, allow your emotions to come out in a healthful manner, and to always strive to find the essence of happiness from within yourself. One the plus side I discovered how enjoyable "Happy Girl" was when I was on one of my walks to boost my joy level(I feel lucky that walking while listening to my favorite music always help to boost my endorphin levels). There are other good country songs on this cd as well(such as the dramatic but soul stirring "Love's the Only House"). This is a great collection to get if you like upbeat and soul stirring country/pop music.
