CD Reviews

Too Much For Casual Fans
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Despite its comprehensive liner notes and inclusion of Squier rarities (including his work with Piper), this dual-CD collection is a bit much to digest, and it would have been more effective had its obscure filler been removed. Also, Squier's Christmas tune, "Christmas Is the Time to Say I Love You," made popular by an early-80s MTV video with the original VJs, is absent, as are a few key cuts from "Don't Say No" and "Signs of Life." Dedicated fans will probably already own Squier's biggest albums (there are only three), and neophytes should look elsewhere."
Great, But Extensive
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This two-disc anthology proves that Billy Squier had a lot more to offer than just his few most popular songs. In fact, two of the best tracks are fairly obscure: the inspirational/cautionary "Learn How To Live" and "Reach For The Sky." There's also some filler from the later days, and some significant cuts off DON'T SAY NO are missing, but this is a terrific overview of a much underrated 80's rocker."
It's all right here
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Despite some filler, this album has all the essentials, including several not found on the "Best Of" collection. A great overview of one of rock's most underrated artists."
