Ultimate Collection by Pat Benatar
The fact is that when it came to Pat Benatar I always had a chip on my shoulder. You see, I had it in my mind that anyone with a name that rhymes with guitar should be a Punk Rocker. Well, I'm glad Benatar also rhymes with Rock Star, cause Pat Benatar has done much to expand the way Rock looks and feels. For me the cadence of her songs are exciting, leaving space open for punctuation as well as surprise. Benatar's music has been the soundtrack to many a romantic ride, and this is not only because of the performances and production on her tracks, but also the storytelling in them. Lastly I've never her another singer put as many different feelings into a spit second. And this is why I can't recommend her Hits, or Greatest Hits albums, because "Ultimate" is what Pat Benatar's sound is all about.
