Album Review

Containing all the charting singles from 2002's All I Have, 2005's Touch, and even a trio of songs from 2007's Because I Love It -- easily the best of her first three albums, ironically not released in the U.S. -- Playlist: The Very Best of Amerie was, as of late 2008, the best single Amerie disc on the market. In addition to a handful of album cuts not issued as singles, there's a faithful cover of Diana Ross' "I'm Coming Out" (from the Maid in Manhattan soundtrack) and "Too Much for Me," her appearance on DJ Kayslay's Columbia-released Streetsweeper, Vol. 1 mixtape/compilation.
