Review

Review Text 1998's The Best of Billy Sqiuer is a very good collection of Squier's work in the '80s. The first six songs ("Rock Me Tonite," "In the Dark," "My Kinda Lover," "Don't Say You Love Me," "The Stroke," and "Everybody Wants You") compare favorably to the best six songs of just about any other '80 pop/rocker and the remaining four are fine choices also (especially the pounding rocker "All Night Long"). Considering that the disc is a budget release, you don't expect it to be a comprehensive picture of Squier's career, but that being said, it seems wrong that the disc doesn't include "Lonely Is the Night," which just might be his best song, or the excellent rocker (and precursor to "The Stroke") "The Big Beat" from his unjustly under-rated debut, Tale of the Tape. For some reason just about every Squier collection overlooks these two classics. In fact, when you get right down to it, there really isn't a completely successful single-disc collection on the market. The Best of Billy Squier is about as good as any other and it might be all the casual fan really needs. [The disc was reissued bearing a different cover by Collectables in 2004 and also by Capitol again in 2005 as part of their 10 Best Series.] ~ Tim Sendra
