The Grammys' legacy of surprises is underscored in a positive light here. Along with 1999 megasellers such as Backstreet Boys' fine "I Want It That Way" and Santana's, well, smooth "Smooth" are excellent tracks by the relatively obscure neo-soulster Macy Gray and blues-rock singer-guitarist Susan Tedeschi. Further, the inclusion of Kid Rock among the nominees is a move that Grammy voters probably wouldn't have made if his multiplatinum album had been released even three or four years ago. Finally, with its emphasis on highly popular work--even Gray's On How Life Is has gone gold--this CD celebrates the eclectic tastes of America's mainstream music listeners. --Rickey Wright

A little bit of everything

"I wanted "Mambo #5" but didn't want to buy the Lou Bega CD. I wanted "Livin' La Vida Loca" but didn't want to buy the Ricky Martin CD. I wanted "No Scrubs" but didn't want to buy the TLC CD. Yadda yadda yadda. This is a decent sampler of some of 1999's more popular songs that will save you from having to buy cds you don't want."
Hot! Hot! Hot!

"This CD gives you a little taste of several different styles of music. I love it! It gives you the chance to expand your music tastes a little at a time. Even though I normally enjoy a milder rock style, I can get into Kid Rock and Santana with no problem here. Susan Tedeschi is a great new talent and Lou Bega has me singing along, too. This CD will have great appeal to people of all ages."
Should have been better

"It gets 5 stars for Santana, Macy Gray, Susan Tedeschi, Marc Anthony, Andrea Bocelli and Sting. And maybe Kid Rock...I'm still out on that one. But the others. Oh boy. BSB's, Ricky, Christina, and Britney. Soooo overplayed and for the most part, so shallow and manufactured. Do they really deserve a Grammy nomination? I think not. When I think of all the really fantastic groups and artists out there, who, because they don't have the big bucks and big companies behind them, get little or no recognition. Instead we get manufactured artists who can only "sing", dance and look good. I know I will probably end up with a million non-helpful votes for my views, but that's ok. But it just seems to me, that over the last couple of years or so, songs are winning Grammys or getting nominations based on their radio popularity and teen fan base, rather than their true musical merit. And it is sad."
