Clint Black Album: “Clint Black Greatest Hits II”
Description :
This is an Enhanced CD, which contains both regular audio tracks and multimedia computer files. <p>CLINT BLACK GREATEST HITS II includes 4 songs of new material. <p>Personnel includes: Clint Black (vocals, guitar, classical guitar); Lisa Hartman Black, Steve Wariner, Martina McBride (vocals); Dean Parks, George Doering (acoustic guitar); Hayden Nicholas (electric guitar); Thomas Peterson (saxophone); Lee Thornberg (trumpet); Wendell Kelly (trombone); Randy Kerber (piano, celeste, music box); Matt Rollings (piano); Leland Sklar, Chuck Domanico (bass); John Robinson (drums); Lenny Castro (percussion). <p>Producers: Clint Black, James Stroud, Mark Wright. <p>Compilation producer: Clint Black. <p>This is an Enhanced CD, which contains both regular audio tracks and multimedia computer files. <p>Any artist who's able to put out a second volume of hits must be doing something right. In the case of contempo-country megastar Clint Black, that particular something is a knack for striking just the right balance between old-school country music values and modern, pop-oriented songcraft and production. As GREATEST HITS II makes undeniably clear, Black walks that line with commitment and aplomb. On "Nothing's New" Black observes that "there's nothing like a steel guitar crying at night" and his assertion is borne out by the tune's arrangement. Traditionalist signifiers like this brush up shoulder to shoulder against the widescreen, pop-friendly production of "The Shoes You're Wearing" and "Still Holding On" (wherein Black duets with country thrush Martina McBride). It's just this kind of juxataposition and resultant cross-contextualization that enlivens Black's work. And for hardcore fans who've already got all Black's albums, four new tunes are included as a pot-sweetener.

- Can't stop listening

I bought this new Clint Black Greatest Hits 2 cd and this has been in my cd player for 2 weeks straight and have not listened to anything else since then it is so great. Songs go all the way back to Killin Time which I like that he did that it keeps those other older albums that he did still alive and sales up. If you don't have this yet and are a Clint Black fan or just anybody who appreciates crafty songwriting and great country music you will love this. Also another thing popping up on these greatest hit cds are new songs I say the creme of the crop is Easy for me to say that is with his nice looking wife Lisa. I love this cd you will not be dissapointed with any of the tracks. If you are fustrated with bad music that has been coming out lately with bad lyrics and awful sound Clint Black's new album is the answer to all of that.Clint Black is one of the better artists in today's country music scene his look is right for country and does not really change up his sound terribly like some artists in Nashville do. Also this album is not getting the recognition it deserves. country magazines and reviewers are just calling it average it's really good though don't listen to those magazines they praise albums that usually sound bland and hurt good ones like this

- More Of The Best Of Black!

I have always thought that Clint Black was above a lot of other country artists that he has been lumped with over the years,or of any artist to come out of the genre in years. He has a real country twangish voice, strong lyrics, and very melodic songs. His first greatest hits was a magnificent album. Perfect in every way. This one is almost as perfect, but not quite. This new set includes three hits from his first album "Killin' Time" in 1989 that were omitted from his first greatest hits set. Here you get "Walkin' Away", "Nobody's Home", and "Nothings News". All great traditional country classics. The rest is a mix of real country songs and some of Clint's more rocking/pop songs that he has done in the last few years. His most recent duets with wife Lisa Hartman Black on "When I Said I Do", and good friend Steve Wariner on the great "Been There", are here. Also included is his pretty duet with Martina McBride called "Still Holding On". Two of my favorites, "Nothin' But The Tailights" and "The Shoes Your Wearing" are included as well. The reason this set isn't as great as the first is that some of these songs are pretty light. There's nothing wrong with that at all, but they don't hold up for very long like some others. The three new songs here are a mixed bunch. Clint tries to do another duet with his wife on the anemic and bland "Easy For Me To Say". The magic that made their first duet a pretty song is entirely missing on this one. "Money Or Love" is a fun rockin' toe tapper in the way that only Clint can do it. Many reviewers say this song is as cliched as they come. So?. It has words, it has a beat, he sings, it does it's job. End of story. The last new song is a song for his new baby called "Little Pearl". It is, of course, a fantastic song.... I hate it when people get irritated when an artist writes something sweet and special for a loved one. Isn't doing that one of the best things about writing a song?. The song is gorgeous and sweet with adorable lyrics. Clint is a brilliant lyricist. He's an incredible musician and performer. There is no one else like him. Sure, Mr. Black has strayed a little from his roots, but who cares?. It's all about the music. He's just doing what he does best and we can't thank him enough for it. Looking forward to more great music from this man in black.

- Some good songs

If you want the best of Clint, buy Killin' Time. Its really the only Clint Black that is essential, even though several other CDs of his are very good. The first Greatest Hits cd is good but left off several number one hits in order to justify a second greatest hits cd. And this is it. No suprise, the "A" material here is from Killin' Time (songs that should have been on the first greatest hits cd) and a few good ones from Tailights. The rest is average. The duets, as with most country male-female duets, are focused more on sappy lyrics than good music. This is a good cd but far from his best.

- outstanding

I was a little disappointed when Clint left some of his songs off his first Greatest Hits album, but was elated when he included them on this great album. I think he is a terrific singer. I have also met him, and he was awesome in person and performance too. "Nobody's Home," "Walkin' Away," "Nothing's News," and "One more Payment" are some of the outstanding songs on this equally outstanding album. If you enjoy Clint's music, you will not be disappointed by this album. I have never regretted buying it.

- A SIMPLE CRITIQUE OF CLINT BLACK'S SONGS

For the most part, all of his songs on this second greatest hits compilation are terrific and fun to listen to, with the exception of "When I Said I Do", a duet which he cut with his wife, Lisa Hartman-Black, a cheesy, fourth-rate actress who couldn't carry a tune in a bucket. Her talent for singing clearly isn't there and her voice is shrill and annoying, so I skip this track every time I play this disc at home or in my truck. Apart from this rancid atrocity of a song, the rest of the tracks are perfect.
