Album Review

"Definitive" may be a touch too strong of a word for this double-disc 2008 set, as it doesn't quite cover all aspects of Rod Stewart's career in its 31 tracks. Opening with the star-making "Maggie May," it bypasses any '60s work (including his time fronting the Jeff Beck Group), skimps on the Faces, enters the '80s by the end of disc one, spends a good chunk of disc two in the latter part of that decade, and then stops around 1993's Unplugged, thereby not including such pretty strong latter-day Warner albums as When We Were the New Boys and also his crooner comeback with the Great American Songbook albums in the new millennium. Given the size of the set, such shorthand is inevitable, and while there are some dodgy inclusions and questionable omissions — sure, "Gasoline Alley" should be here and "Love Touch" sounds sillier with each passing year — this is nevertheless a very good hit-heavy overview of Rod's prime years as a pop star, containing every one of his big hits. It's enough to make it worthwhile for most casual fans even if it's not quite enough to make it "definitive."

Customer Reviews

Awesome

Always been a fan but never bought his LP's or CD's. When I saw this I knew I had to purchase it. An awesome CD to say the least.

One Stop Shop

Great albumn which covers the best of Rod Stewart. I've you've never purchased Rod before, this will complete your collection of essentials in one shot. Great value at $0.25 per song!

Definately a Five Star Album

This is the first collection of Rod Stewart's finest tracks and it would get a Five Star rating at $29.99, but for seven dollars and change it's a fantastic value! Buy it, you won't regret spending the money for a second!

Over the course of his career, Rod Stewart has had it all. He's been lauded as the finest singer of his generation, he's written several songs that turned into modern standards, he sang with the Faces, who rivaled the Rolling Stones in their prime, he had massive commercial success. Stewart also saw his critical respect slip away during the '80s, when he recorded lightweight pop and although he did record some terrible albums — and he would admit that freely — Stewart will always be remembered...
