The Greatest Hits (Funkoars album)
The Greatest Hits is the second album released by Australian hip hop group Funkoars. It was released by Obese Records on 17 July 2006. Central Station states that the album "'captures the reckless spirit' of a band ell known for their passionate and outrageous lyrics, onstage antics and energy". Broadcaster PBS 106.7 FM listed the album on 24 July 2006 on its'Beats Tipsheet' as a suggested CD for electronic and hip hop heads. Rapreviews stated; the Greatest Hits is not a greatest hits album, despite the title making it appear that way. The title of the album is a tongue-in-cheek reference to greatest hits albums, in which an established artist compiles their most popular songs into an album. Like many Australian rap groups, The Funkoars are unheard of and to this day are far from being known as an Australian household name, unlike their Obese Records associates, Hilltop Hoods; this album title could be seen as playful exaggeration, comparing their group to famous artists, who release greatest hits albums to monetize once again on charted singles.
The tongue-in-cheek exaggeration of the album title makes more sense in the third track, The Greatest Skit, where group member'Trials' exclaims during a post-performance backstage skit that the group only received 25 dollars in profit from the live show they performed. Except where otherwise noted, all tracks written by MC Sesta and MC Trials. "Hurro" – 2:23 "Da Na Na" – 3:52 "The Greatest Skit" – 1:19 "The Greatest Hit" – 3:39 "Blackout" – 4:00 "You Know It" – 3:17 "The Symphony" – 3:47 "Swank Stedly Presents..." – 1:51 "C. O. T. Y" – 3:58 "And Now for Something Completely Different" – 3:23 "Sesta vs. Pressure" – 1:16 "What I Want" – 4:30 "Masterpiece" – 3:31 "Meet the Family" – 3:13 "The Reason" – 4:42 The Greatest Hits at AllMusic
Whitney: The Greatest Hits
Whitney: The Greatest Hits is a compilation album by American singer Whitney Houston, released in May 2000. The set consists of disc one with ballads and disc two with uptempo remixes. Houston's performance of "The Star-Spangled Banner" at Super Bowl XXV, 1988 Olympics tribute "One Moment in Time" are included in the set; the collection includes four new songs—"Could I Have This Kiss Forever", duet with Enrique Iglesias, "If I Told You That", duet with George Michael, "Same Script, Different Cast", duet with Deborah Cox and "Fine"—all of which were released as singles. It includes three other songs that had never appeared on a Houston album: "One Moment in Time", "The Star Spangled Banner", "If You Say My Eyes Are Beautiful", a duet with Jermaine Jackson from his 1986 Precious Moments album. Along with the album, an accompanying VHS and DVD was released featuring the music videos to Houston's greatest hits, as well as several hard-to-find live performances including her 1983 debut on The Merv Griffin Show, interviews.
Upon its release Whitney: The Greatest Hits was a commercial success, but it received mixed reviews from music critics. Many complained about the inclusion of remixes on disc two, instead of their original versions, it peaked within top ten in most European countries, United States, Canada and New Zealand, received numerous platinum and multiplatinum awards. The IFPI certified it three times platinum in 2000 for sales exceeding 3 million copies in Europe. After Houston's passing in February 2012, it saw resurgence in sales and re-entered album charts in many countries in Europe and in North America. In the United States, it reached a new peak of number two on the Billboard 200. In July 2012, it was certified five times platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America for sales exceeding 2.5 million in the United States, because it's a double disc album, its CDs are therefore counted separately for certification purposes, meaning the album achieved platinum status in the United States after 500,000 copies were shipped, not one million.
In the United States, copies sold at Circuit City stores included a third disc containing new club remixes. Whitney: The Unreleased Mixes is a limited-edition four-record vinyl set, containing eight full club versions of selected remixes found on the American release. In June 2006, it was released digitally and re-titled Dance Vault Mixes: Whitney Houston – The Unreleased Mixes. In January 2011, the album was re-issued in Europe, Canada and New Zealand with the international track listing, but the set was re-titled as The Essential Whitney Houston, as part of Sony Legacy's The Essential series. In addition to the title change, the re-release features different artwork; the cover picture of the original release was taken by David LaChapelle. Following the release of her Greatest Hits album, Houston promoted it by performing three sold-out shows at Caesars in Atlantic City from June 30 to July 3, 2000, she performed an additional date during the fall on November 10, at the Aladdin Theatre in Las Vegas, with husband at that time, Bobby Brown opening the show.
Brown performed a few of his hit songs, both performers closed the show singing their hit duet, "Something in Common". Upon its release, Whitney: The Greatest Hits received mixed reviews from music critics. CANOE reviewer Jane Stevenson felt that it is "a greatest hits package that makes good listening sense." Steve Huey from AllMusic showed his dissatisfaction with Arista's choice for the accompanying second disc included their remix instead of the original version, stating "the Greatest Hits disc amply reinforces once again what a fine singles artist Houston has been for the entirety of her career. Still and all, though, it's a frustrating package marred by record company greed." Unlike Huey, Jim Farber of New York Daily News rated the second disc more than the first which "recycles Houston's boring old ballads." He commented: "In her dance mixes, she exudes an erotic dynamism that no one else has the lung power to match. This album isn't just an ecstatic piece of party music ― it utterly redefines Houston as an artist."
Newsweek's Allison Samuels wrote "No one of her generation sings with more character and conviction", giving the album four stars out of five. Ken Tucker from Entertainment Weekly commented harshly on the album: "To listen to the two discs is to hear the sound of a gift being squandered", advising her "Continually pursuing mega record sales at the expense of invention, Houston needs to exhale — to loosen up and put more shoop-shoop R&B into her creative life." A reviewer from The Guardian commented that". The likes of I Will Always Love You and Greatest Love of All weren't just a waste of one of the great soul voices, but Houston remembers her gospel and R&B roots enough to counterbalance the slush with rootsier offerings like I'm Your Baby Tonight and It's Not Right But It's Okay. New duets with George Michael and Enrique Iglesias complete a couple of hours of diva-style fun." Steve Jones form USA Today rated the album four stars out of four, commenting that "Whitney: The Greatest Hits puts its subject in context by smartly arranging the material so it's easy to follow Whitney Houston's 15 year progression from ingenue to mature singer.
The set does its job well, encapsulating a career that's still a work in progress." Billboard called it "quite stellar collection", adding that "timing couldn't be better for this career retrospective." In contrast, according to NME "he timing couldn't be worse. Issuing a double CD of Whitney Houston's finest moments was intended to shore up her eroding soul
