Greatest Hits compiles Confederate Railroad's biggest hits, including all of their Top 10 singles, as well as several singles that never made it quite as far up the charts. As an added bonus, the group has added two new songs -- which aren't particularly noteworthy -- to lure fans that already own all the band's albums to the new collection. Even with the addition of the new songs, Greatest Hits remains the province of casual fans -- it's a serves up all the hits in an engaging, concise manner. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
