Quite possibly the only REO Speedwagon disc set you'll ever need. Usually when a band puts out a latter day compilation such as this, they manage to botch it badly by missing the occasional hit or two (take this band's package Hits that manages to not include anything from Good Trouble as an example.) But on this two disc retrospective, it's essentially flawless. Not to mention that just about everything from their first ever compilation A Decade of Rock and Roll is here, which was great because even though there were never really any hits from that decade, it served as a strong sampling of the groups early work.

The second disc here has just about all the latter day hits you could possibly want. Good job.
