    Of course, anything labeling itself the "greatest ever" is going to have a hard time truly living up to that claim, and such is the case with Greatest Songs Ever: Italy. To be fair, there are some good selections on the album, ranging from '60s hits by Albano ("Nel Sole"), Tony Renis ("Quando Quando Quando"), and I Nomadi ("Dio E Morto") to contemporary pop artists like Tiromancino (whose "Descrizione di un Attimo" is from his 2000 album by the same name) or Tiziano Ferro. Female artists are in short supply here, however (Antonella Ruggiero from Matia Bazaar is the only one), leading one to question where the songs from Mina, Ornella Vanoni, or even Paola Turci, Elisa, or Carmen Consoli are, and there are other exclusions -- Vasco Rossi, Fabrizio De Andr, Lucio Battisti, Paolo Conte -- to name just a few. The record is by no means complete, focusing too much on the more "electronic" side of Italian pop music, but still, there's a Franco Battiato song, and one by Nicola Arigliano, too, making it a pretty decent collection overall. ~ Marisa Brown
