With George Strait, the hits literally do keep on coming. At the start of the 21st century, more than 20 years into his career, this elder statesman of "New Country" still racked up Number-Ones effortlessly. The secret, of course, is in the songs. Strait's real talent is his ability to choose outstanding material, and there's a hefty chunk of it on this CD, which collects his mid-to-late '90s hits.
It's all here, from the Cajun stomp and rockin' rhythms of "Adalida" and "We Really Shouldn't Be Doing This," to the breezy catchiness of "Carrying Your Love With Me, " "True," and "Blue Clear Sky," to the heartache of "King of the Mountain" and "Today My World Slipped Away." The brilliant "Check Yes Or No" is MIA, but the CD does offer two new cuts, "The Best Day," a father/son ballad, and "Murder on Music Row," a duet with Alan Jackson. The latter is a neat gimmick: two "real" country singers recording a scathing put-down of Shania Twain-type country. But LATEST GREATEST proves that Strait is entitled to scold his colleagues for not "keeping it country." After all, he always has--and look where he ended up.
