Based on comments made on the 1988 Greatest Hits, some of you guys didn't do your homework. This release was out when you said Journey didn't include enough hits. Of course, I've seen some reviews on sites that still bitch about certain songs being or not being included. Can't please everyone. What fan can get enough anyways? I disagree with the comment about outgrowing the previous hits package. It has my fav's. This one contains the same songs but goes a bit further.

From: TIM Date: November 9, 2003 at 22:41
(cont'd.) "Anytime" and "Stone In Love" are not my fav's but for those that want them- here they are. I think they could have done things a bit differently on this second disc, but I can understand from a business standpoint. If they provided a true "hits" package, then their sales would suffer. Only the true fanatics would collect everything. I know I would.

Una Genial forma d conocer sus mas grandes temas (aunque faltan muchos) SUPER SUPER RECOMENDADO para aquellos q no tengan nada d estos Dioses!!

From: ThunderDan Date: November 11, 2003 at 18:16
The first disc is great & has many cool songs and some big hits. Then you get to the second disc, and it raised my eyebrows. Can anyone tell me what Something To Hide, Good Morning Girl and Baby I'm Leaving You are doing on here? Feeling That Way should have been included, right behind Anytime (I still catch those 2 played together every once in a while). If He Should Break Your Heart shouldn't have been left off either. Other than that, this is an overall great collection.

"Good Morning Girl" is great- hell with that idea.

From: Blaster Date: March 11, 2004 at 4:39
This 2 disc set is much better than the one disc that preceded it since Journey has so many hits. It leaves out "Suzanne" and "Remember Me" from the Armageddon soundtrack and has a few slight album tracks, but its definitely recommended for the Journey fan.

From: Big Papa K Date: June 27, 2004 at 0:18
It took me a while to warm up to Journey, as I have never been much of a fan of vocalists in the style of Steve Perry. But even I have to admit a great song when I hear one, which there are many of on here. Disc one, is a lot better than the first though, and some hit songs are still missing. 8/10

Another best of.

From: swriter Date: January 4, 2006 at 17:27
very nice set, and compared with the other cds, some great remastered sound on this, for some reason I never heard The Party's over?, good best of indeed!!!
