Still An Underappreciated Genius,
This review is from: Still On Top: The Greatest Hits (3CD) (Audio CD)
Yes, yes, just recently Greatest Hits V 3 was released and that had quite a few unreleased and obscure gems on it, but this is so far the best comprehensive set of Morrison's greatest hits. There are always a few songs we'd all like to see added to this compilation, but they do a reasonable job of assembling his most popular work. Kudo's for the inclusion of "Celtic New Year" and leaving off songs from some of his duet albums and his abysmal "Pay the Devil" CD. Overall a great place to start if you're a begginer to Morrison's vast catalogue, and the third CD has some great tracks that perhaps should have made the first two discs, like "Hymns to the Silence" and "Rough God Goes Riding." Nothing is perfect, but these CD's are as close as anyone has gotten to summing up Van's work. Highly recommended!
