"The title of one of the songs on this CD sums it up-unbelievable. Diamond Rio is a marvelous group with a unique style, and this album captures it all. "Beautiful Mess," "I Believe," "You're Gone," and "In a Week or Two" are some of the great songs you'll find on it. I really enjoy it and guarantee you will too."
Close to perfect

"After releasing the 14 track Diamond Rio - Greatest Hits in 1997 and the 13 track Greatest Hits, Vol. 2 in 2006, the 2007 "16 Biggest Hits" is the closest their label has come to getting it right... although it's still not perfect. And if there is a country group that deserves a "perfect" compilation, it's Diamond Rio who ruled the country charts back in the '90s.
Popularity has been a bit elusive for them, as it has been for so many of the neo-traditional acts of the '90s, during this era of pop/rock oriented country radio. But one listen to the beautiful harmonies and incredible musicianship on this collection and you'll know why their '90s success was so well deserved.
"16 Biggest Hits" certainly includes their "biggest" hits from the earliest singles that took country radio by storm ("Meet in the Middle", "Mirror Mirror") to later, more reflective tracks such as "Beautiful Mess" and "One More Day". "16 Biggest Hits" also includes 3 singles that, for reasons that I can't fathom, were not included on either of the earlier hits collections: "This Romeo Ain't Got Julie Yet", "Nowhere Bound", and "Oh Me, Oh My, Sweet Baby". Finally!
Unfortunately this CD does not completely replace Greatest Hits I/II because missing in action are essentials "Night is Falling In my Heart", "Imagine That", "That's What I Get for Loving You", "Bubba Hyde", and... well, most of the tracks on GH II. Still "16 Biggest" is the way to go if you want to pick up a single Diamond Rio compilation disc."
