Although both compilations contain 12 tracks, the mid-priced 20th Century Masters - The Millennium Collection: The Best of Mark Chesnutt is actually a bit longer than the full-priced Greatest Hits from 1996 and more current, containing Chesnutt's 1997 hit "Thank God for Believers" and his 1999 hit "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing." But neither collection is complete. Chesnutt scored 21 Top Ten country hits during the 1990s, and each album inevitably misses some of them. The major omissions from this one are "Blame It on Texas," "Old Flames Have New Names," "Old Country," "Almost Goodbye," and "Goin' Through the Big D," each of which hit the Top Five, with "Almost Goodbye" going all the way to number one. Four of these five are on Greatest Hits, which otherwise has an overlap of seven tracks with The Best of. That means a Chesnutt fan is likely to be somewhat dissatisfied with either one and may be forced to buy both to have a reasonable collection of hits. (And even then, there are some missing from both collections.) At least this one costs a few bucks less.
A Good Album
Mark Chesnutt has a great voice, and he does these songs well. Most of them are great, although a few are overly sentimental and a bit trite. Mark's song selection never quite matched his excellent voice, and that is probably why he remained a B-list star and never became a superstar. There are some truly great moments here (Too Cold at Home; Bubba Shot the Jukebox; Ill Think of Something) and these songs show just how great Chesnutt could be when he was given a great song to sing. Unfortunately, sometimes he got second rate material, such as "Your Love is a Miracle" or "She Dreams." Five stars for Chesnutt's amazing voice, three stars for the somewhat inconsistent material, for an average of four stars. However, this CD probably deserves four and a half stars because the great voice makes some of the otherwise weak material seem stronger. Too bad i can't give fractional stars.
Anonymous: Stick with your Genre
Mark Chesnutt provided true honkytonk fans with great classic county in the early 90s. This is a good compilation of his greatest hits. Anonymous needs to stick to listening his teeny bop top 40 hits.
A fantastic collection
Mark Chesnutt is a great country artist. This collection of some of his best hits is a great look at his career, and filled with some true classics. Highly recommended.
