Review -- KIM ESTY -- The Best of Kim Esty

THE BEST OF KIM ESTY
Kim Esty
Squeeze Toy Studios
6-out-of-10
So, were you a fan of Kim Esty in the 1990s? If you answer yes -- even if it's your little secret, no one will see you nodding yes as your read the newspaper – then you are going to like this.
If you're a fan, what's not to like. Esty offers up her familiar hots from the 90s, adds in a few new cuts, and packages it all up as a disk with 17-cuts.
So what exactly are you getting?
Well there is Squeezetoy, the title cut from a rather historic album for Esty. The disk debuted on Billboard at #1 in 1999, a feat only repeated by Alanis Morrisette and Shania Twain in terms of Canadians. Of course I have to question what the world was thinking in 1999, at least based on the single. What a terrible little tune to be on a 'Best of' album.
Dancin With Myself, a Billy Joel cover that Esty had success with is here. I'd rather hear Joel's version.
Esty does offer up the new self-penned He Doesn't Like Me .... It's not a bad song, well at least for the genre. Esty does all right writing in terms of it fitting in with her earlier material. That said it doesn't show any growth stylistically from a decade earlier either.
Of course two versions of He Doesn't Like Me ... on the same album is wasting some CD space.
There are some songs here that are actually pretty good – oh by the way I was never a big fan of this gal. Still Gilligan is a rather haunting song with some merit as a single. The song is new, and also co-written by Esty.
However, in general terms by the nature of the dance mix beat of the music, this is all rather shallow stuff, and while fans may be drooling over 17 songs, it's really just too much for me. It is not something that will get played often – OK probably never again.
Fan will want to run out and get this disk in a hurry. The rest of the world can probably be happy to pass it by. An acquired taste in the 1990s which has not gotten sweeter with age.
