For anyone who loves 70's AOR this is a great release. A nice mix of fast and slow songs filled with infectious hooks. After seeing MSB live several times, it is my opinion that they were a great nationally underappreciated band.

MSB is the sure cure for imsomnia. BORING! My God, I can't get through one entire song w/o dozing off. This crap sucks, I want something that moves me, not put me in a coma. SNOOZE! Anyone who can stomach this is very hard up for entertainment, what garbage. No wonder the average paperboy makes more money per year than Stanley, he bites the big one! YAWN! I have alot more talent than this clown, and I have the recordings to prove it. This is pure waste, el stinko. Embarrassing, vomit inducing.

From: RL Date: March 27, 2002 at 12:37
This SUCKS! If you want to go into a very deep sleep, put this trash on. NO TALENT!

Good CD - MSB has done Better.

From: Jari Y Date: August 25, 2002 at 17:48
Another great CD from MSB...if you like Heartland ,North Coast or MSB you'll like this one . Michael Stanley and Kevin Raleigh are two great singer /songwriters and MSB had them both...

From: Dennis O Date: October 25, 2003 at 4:18
Greatest Hints is not a collection of Michael Stanley Band's Greatest Hits but if your a fan of this NORTHCOAST band then your collection is not complete with out this offering. Michael Stanley introduced the world to Kevin Raleigh on Greatest Hints. Raleigh later wrote "He Can't Love You" the MSB classic. Greatest Hints features "Promises (We Make in the Night) & the great cover of the old Supremes "Back in my Arms again" plus Last Night. This recording deserves a listen.

I believe this might be the weakest of the MSB stuff. "Last Night" is a good tune, but the rest just seem dated. You can do much better with "Heartland", "MSB", "Cabin Fever", & "North Coast". By the way, how come those aren't on HH?
