A collection of ten tracks by female artists released in DVD Audio, Inside the Music: Women on Top is strangely reminiscent of the compilations released when the CD was still a developing format. Most of the track selections are solid enough, including Blondie's "Heart of Glass," Katrina and the Waves' "Walking on Sunshine," and Kim Carnes' "Bette Davis Eyes," but they're also somewhat dated; Wilson Phillips' "Hold On" is the most recent track included on the album. Likewise, it's questionable whether anyone really wants to try out their new DVD Audio system with Vixen's "Cryin'." Missing Persons' "Words," the Motels' "Only the Lonely," and Ike and Tina Turner's "Nutbush City Limits" round out this odd collection, which is entertaining enough, but hardly state-of-the-art. ~ Heather Phares
