20th Century Masters - The Millennium Collection: The Best of Klymaxx, released in 2003, has one minor difference compared to the previous Klymaxx anthology, 1996's Greatest Hits. The discs, both ten tracks in length, share nine songs between them, including "The Men All Pause," "I Miss You," "Meeting in the Ladies Room," "I'd Still Say Yes," and "Good Love" -- all of which either hit or just missed the Top Ten of Billboard's R&B chart. The lone difference is that this disc contains "Private Party," a minor charting hit, instead of the album cut "Look Good." As with Greatest Hits, this would provide a more accurate overview with a couple inclusions from the group's two Solar albums, released in 1981 and 1982. ~ Andy Kellman
