        This is one of the longest single record compilations I've ever
bought. This particular CD is part of a set which spans four decades. The
only word that comes to mind as I listen to it is "weak". We have good,
decent songs like "Harden my Heart", and "I Can Dream About You" (one of
my favorites) intertwined with pure crap like "Celebration", one of the
songs that gives the Eighties a bad name, and the Hall and Oates. JCI
apparently wanted to make an album covering all the bases (R & B, Pop,
Dance, Rock, New Wave, et. al.); and ended up with seventy-five minutes
of mediocrity.
