Some of the releases in MCA's 20th Century Masters: The Millennium Collection series have been downright baffling, essentially just cutting a few tracks from an already-existing hits package. Jody Watley's installment is one of those -- aside from the 1998 non-LP single "Off the Hook," which is only available here, every song on this compilation can be found on 1996's Greatest Hits, which also features four songs not present here (and is still in print). Granted, if you buy The Millennium Collection, you know you'll be getting the original single mixes (i.e., the ones that received radio airplay), whereas Greatest Hits did feature a few remixes, including one of the Top Ten hit "Some Kind of Lover" (which some fans may want in the original version). That and the slightly lower price may actually tip the scales in favor of The Millennium Collection for casual fans, but otherwise, it's kind of redundant. ~ Steve Huey
