Hits of the 2000's !! - I dont think so,
This review is from: 100 Hits: 2000s (Audio CD)
I will start by saying I usually love these collections from Demon but this one is very dodgy.
First the title "Hits from the 2000s", this is a bit dubious on the trade descriptions front. It was released in 2008 so there is nothing from 2008 or 2009, 1 track from 2007 and 2 each from 2005 & 2006. so of 100 hits only 5 are from the second half of the decade.
Then the quality of what you get, lots of dubious covers that were minor hits and slightly inferior follow up tracks by artists who had major hits. Wheatus anyone, which hit would you want (Teenage Dirtbag) but what do you get (The dodgy cover of A Little Respect, a hit but in hindsight not good), G4's abysmal cover of Bohemian Rhapsody. The list of mediocrity is rather long.
So only about half the tracks are memorable and worth inclusion on an ipod, which is a shame. The saving grace is these collections are cheap, so the number of decent tracks for the money is still pretty good - but you won't be playing the CD's in their entirety in the car.
