CD Reviews

Absolutely perfect
Galley | Greenville, South Carolina United States | 03/24/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

""Anthology" is the perfect Monkees compilation. It's extremely difficult to limit The Monkees' contribution to popular music to only one disc. This collection contains not only all of the hits, but the essential album tracks as well. It also covers their entire 30-year recording career. Music Box is great for the die-hard fan, but "Anthology" deserves a spot in every music lover's collection."
Monkees - 'Anthology' (Rhino) 2-CD
Mike Reed | USA | 06/22/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Even though I've heard every one of this 2-CD release's fifty tracks like a zillion times before, if I'm in the correct frame of mind, I can still get plenty from this timeless made-for-televison bubble gum band's repertoire. Part of the fact might have to do with the fact is I haven't heard all THESE cuts in years. All your Monkees favorites are here, and then some. Tunes like the "Monkees Theme Song", "Last Train To Clarksville", "Saturday's Child" (one of my personal Monkees faves), "Sweet Young Thing", "Mary Mary", the single edits for "Steppin' Stone" and "Pleasant Valley Sunday" plus too many more to list here. An absolute must-have. Would make a great gift. Quick footnote: remember the song "For Pete's Sake"? Some fans I've come across still don't recall that cut right off hand. It was the TV's show closing theme for the second season."
Very surprised

"I was very surprised at the list of songs on this cd. Some of the songs I have heard of and knew the words to them. An some songs I have never heard before. I have gained a new respect for Michael Nesmith. He has written some great songs that are on this cd. One of my new favorite Nesmith songs is "While I cry". His voice is so great on that song. I also have found more respect for Micky Dolenz as a song writer. The song on this cd called "Mommy and Daddy". At first, I thought it was a little off of the wall. But the more I listen to this song, the more I like. In all this is a great cd for any Monkee fan. I suggest it greatly!"
