Occasionally I go through a lull where I'm not really "into" any particular music. During these times I tend to buy these sorts of compilation albums where the music is varied, where maybe I might discover some songs, or maybe even genres, I've not heard much of before.
I have a 1 hour round trip commute every weekday by car, so this one looked a decent buy.

Disc 1 starts up in lively fashion, gearing up with Queen's "Don't Stop Me Now". Minus the odd track, this disc is generally excellent. Disc 2 isn't so bad either, with some nice choices in Blondie's "One Way or Another" and the theme from Saxondale.

But unfortunately it's all downhill from there. Disc 3 is absolutely the worst. It is, bar the odd exceptions, 25 consecutive tracks of oldies. Don't get me wrong, I don't hate the oldies, in fact I quite enjoy them, but in moderation. It's the way they dedicated the entire CD to it that just seems so lacking in creativity. Why not spread them out over a few discs?

Now, what I consider a good driving song may well differ from what you, or in this case, the CD compilers, consider a good driving song. But it just seems to me as though, particularly in Disc 3, they have just Googled songs with "car" or "drive" or "highway" etc in them, and randomly selected the ones that have been thrown up. That doesn't necessarily make them good driving songs: Disc 3 is enough to send you to sleep - not a good idea when you're driving.

Fortunately, Disc 4 is on hand to pick up the speed again. "My Sharona" followed by "Turning Japanese" gets the heart rate going again, and by the time you reach Roxette's "Joyride" you can't help but put your foot down. In fact, it all coasts along quite nicely into Disc 5.

I thought the fact it had 5 cds was a bargain. This is a very random selection of hits. It is great for a long journey, but however I found myself skipping a lot of the fillers especially on cd's 3 and 4

I was very surprised to see the previous negative reviews for this album.

This is a fantastic collection of tracks, from the 60s to present day, with some gems that I'd forgotten how fantastic they are.

Pay no attention to the previous reviewers - musical taste is very personal. Look at the track lists and make up your own mind. If you like what you see, buy it - you won't regret it. If you don't, well then - keep your money and stay happy.

101 DRIVNG SONGS ON A 5CD BOX. I GOT THIS 5CD BOX CHEAP, CHEAPER THAN IF I HAD GOT A SINGLE CD OF DRIVING SONGS. ITS MOSTLY OLD SKOOL ROCK, GOLDEN EARRING-RADAR LOVE AND THE LIKE. BUT U ALSO GET NEW WAVE AND POPPIER SONG BUT NOT TOO MANY OF THOSE THANK GOD. I OWN LOADS OF CDS BUT SOMETIMES U JUST WANT THE HITS WHILE DRIVING OR DOING THE CHORES AT HOME AND THIS 5CD BOX DOES THAT GR8.

these 5 discs, yes 5!!, have a great selection of eclectic tracks. I can't believe people who say they've not heard of most of the tracks...er it gives a track listing, if you don't like it then don't buy. For those people who don't just listen to local commercial "Braindead Radio" then there's a real interesting mix of music from several decades. I'm a heavy rock fan & my other half likes softer rock & pop stylings and we both found great tracks! Go on widen your musical tastes and take a punt on this one.

If you've grown up being trapped in the car with your parents music selection... plus also enjoy music with a good rock beat and decent lyrics, this will be for you!
I was very impressed by the range of years, actually decades, covered here.
There are some fillers, as others have mentioned, but all tracks have enough rhythm and beats to keep you awake on long journeys.
For those who are skipping some of the tracks, maybe you've just become accustomed to your own varied listening threshold - fortunately mine has built up over many years and memories of times, people (especially my family's favourites) and places came flooding back. A Great All-Rounder - I'd recommend for around the house cleaning, tidying up as well as in the car! Have been looking for a compilation like this for years!!!!

Some songs I have not heard in a while. Some were not my taste at all - but overall, happy with the collection.
