Album Review

The Ultimate Collection collects Maria McKee's definitive moments with Lone Justice and as a solo artist. Her sensual yet down-to-earth vocals and gritty songwriting stand out on Lone Justice tracks like "Don't Toss Us Away," "Shelter," and "Ways to Be Wicked"; her growth as both a singer and a writer is reflected on solo songs such as "Absolutely Barking Stars," "Breathe," and "What Else You Wanna Know." The collection also includes some interesting bonuses, including Lone Justice's live version of "Sweet Jane," an acoustic demo of "Show Me Heaven," and "If Love Is a Red Dress," which originally appeared on the Pulp Fiction soundtrack. At 17 tracks long, This One Is for the Girl comes pretty close to being an ultimate collection of McKee's body of work.

Customer Reviews

Maria is Great!

This is a great album. The vocals on Sweet Sweet Baby are breathtaking. Maria should be more famous, she is a soulful singer with the voice of an angel. Listen and get hooked, she is fantastic.

Christopher Sky's Review Is Dead-On The Money...

Everyone should have heard of her by now, yet fame has not been bestowed upon her to match her musical gifts. Perhaps her occasionally religious lyrics and imagery have turned some off. Don't miss this collection if you make only one purchase of her music. I would recommend the Lone Justice Millenium Master collection and the Maria McKee Millenium Master collection, for the more adventurous. You will be rewarding your ears. For samplers or economic budgets I recommend songs # 1-4, 12, 16.

only scratching the surface

i can't give this album less than 5 stars simply based on content--BUT i strongly recommend going back and getting all the original albums in their entirety. many of the songs are understood better in their intended context, and besides, you're missing out on so much amazing work with this "best-of" collection. maria mckee is worth a closer look than this affords.
