I'm certainly no music afficiando, just enjoy certain songs and 'must have' tracks to listen to when driving. This fits the bill splendidly, where you can get some of the best music of the year in one place. Usually as I am 50+ there are many tracks to-day that I by-pass when buying a compilation but here this is a real bargain of 3 cd's, some amzing artists and songs. Disc 1 alone would have been worth the money and that and Disc 3 are my favourites but out of the whole set there are only a handful that I don't like. Already played this many times over, my daughter loved it and now i'm off to buy her a surprise treat of this CD to take our minds off the non summer we are going through. I know it is individual choice but I'm sure many more will like this set.
