The Very Best of Kleeer is an excellent 13-track collection that is, in many ways, the definitive overview of the funk band's career. All of the group's R&B hits -- "Keep Your Body Workin'," "Tonight's the Night (Good Time)," "Winners," "Open Your Mind," "Get Tough," "Running Back to You," "Taste the Music," "De Ting Continues," "She Said She Loves Me," "Next Time It's for Real," "Intimate Connection," "Take Your Heart Away" -- are here, usually presented in their full-length album versions instead of the edited single versions. While this might make Very Best a little too lengthy for some casual fans who just want singles -- after all, it runs over 77 minutes -- it's hard to imagine a more comprehensive collection than this. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
