-- "[A] respectable career overview -- the lost-cause divorce lament 'Angry All the Time' and Latin-lilting midlife progress report 'My Next Thirty Years,' especially, are worth obtaining wherever you can."

Two years after releasing Greatest Hits, Vol. 3, Tim McGraw put out Number One Hits -- a double-disc distillation of 24 of his biggest hits. Naturally, not every one of his charting singles fit under this rubric, but Number One Hits sticks to the parameters of its title more faithfully than most discs of this nature, including only chart-toppers along with the requisite new cut "Feels Good on My Lips." Although the sequencing is bewilderingly non-chronological, hop-scotching from one decade to another, Number One Hits does serve up all the high points from McGraw's career, and hints at his range, making this the best overview of his work yet assembled. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
