The budget-line 2012 collection Playlist: The Very Best of Colin Raye is a 14-track overview of the country singer's popular peak. Most of Raye's biggest hits are here -- the number one singles "Love, Me," "In This Life," "My Kind of Girl," along with "Someone You Used to Know," "Every Second," and "Couldn't Last a Moment" -- and there is a sharp selection of lesser-known songs. Perhaps 2002's 16 Biggest Hits offers more big singles, but most casual fans will be very satisfied with what this Playlist has to offer. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
