News of the World's a favorite of mine, as well. Even the songs that I would never actually call "good" songs (namely Get Down Make Love) are still fun listens. And It's Late is one of the most underrated Queen songs, in my opinion.
I love Greatest Hits sets! I can't wait for other forms of media to pick up on this... like...
1. Hamlet Act 1, Scene 2
2. A Midsummer's Night Dream Act 2, Scene 2
3. King Lear Act 2, Scene 4
4. The Tempest Act 3, Scene 2
5. Henry VIII Act 2, Scene 3
6. Othello Act 3, Scene 4
7. Macbeth Act 1, Scene 7
8. Romeo & Juliet Act 2, Scene 2
In all seriousness though I don't mind them so much if they compile things like singles or B-sides that didn't make their way to studio albums or even acting as a box set for EPs like they did with The Beta Band and Off!
Its what ever floats your boat. If your some sort of purist that needs a whole album, I can understand that. I used to be like that. But I've found some bands have a lot of crappy songs. But also some complilations work better than others.
Concidering whole albums, I'm to the point where I'm going to start deleting songs I don't like. The best album of all time Sgt Peppers has one turd on it, you know the crappy song wiht the bongos and mandalin. Turd. But can you really delete a song fron the best album ever.
On this album I didn't. Seemed wrong. But on other albums I'm doing it.
Byand adams, Everywhere I go, the Kids wanna rock - delete.
Kati Perry - Show me your Peacock - Delete _________________ New fav's: The Weepies, Art Brut, 311. Old Fav's: Bowie, zepalin, stones, buckcherry, cheap trick, couting crowes.

King of Delta Blues Singers is the best compilation in my opinion. Singles Going Steady is also great. Outside of that, I tend to avoid them unless they're from genres or artists that were mostly singles artists (Sam Cooke, Jams Brown for example)
