Record Rating: *****

Shania Twain - Greatest Hits - Universal Music Her 1997 album Come On Over became the best-selling record by a female artist in any genre, largely thanks to the number one hits You’re Still The One and From This Moment and since then she’s one of the world’s biggest pop stars. With her Svengali-like producer/husband, slick-rock king Robert "Mutt" Lange, (the man behind Def Leppard and Bryan Adams) Shania Twain has sold more records in the last few years than any female singer has in the last decade.

Her new album - Greatest Hits - is a career-spanning retrospective that collects her catchiest and most-popular tunes; and it doesn't skimp in either the hits or its actual length. With 21 tracks, it's a jam-packed treasure trove of platinum baubles and golden nuggets that's sure to make your feet tap along and your head bob agreeably. What’s great about this collection is that it has almost every big hit from her career, bypassing just a handful of tracks. (Of which only Up’s When You Kiss Me is greatly missed) In reverse chronological order, the track listing begins with the ballad Forever And Always from her most recent album Up! – then running through hits like Man! I Feel Like a Woman!, That Don' Impress Me Much - right up to her earlier country efforts of Any Man of Mine. And if you’re looking for her most famous ballads that are staple requests at parties and weddings everywhere, you won’t be disappointed. You're Still The One and From This Moment On, are on this one as well. The gleefully goofy Party For Two is the album’s big new hit with Sugar Ray's Mark McGrath teaming up with an overcharged Shania. The highlight of the new material is a very powerful and deep ballad titled Don't! – One of the better love songs she’s done in awhile.

That said, arguably this is Shania Twain’s most essential album. The music here is irresistible; you can't help but dance or sing along. Her Greatest Hits is a rewarding effort that’s guaranteed to keep her legion of fans and new converts well satisfied. No matter what your musical taste is, this is destined to put a smile on your face. Two thumbs up all the way!
