The Best of Shaquille O'Neal
Though not an Ultimate Collection compilation, The Best of Shaquille O'Neal suggests that there was once some inquiry into his preexisting discography to determine what songs, if any, merited inclusion in a greatest hits collection. One wonders how that decision making process occurred. Was it by committee, or did a single record company employee select the tracks he or she deemed appropriate for inclusion? Did O'Neal have such a collection of hits spanning so many albums that the record buying public needed his greatest works to be condensed into one disc? Surely not.
Thirty-something suffering from nostalgia but, thankfully, not from bouts of irony. Here, I will revisit artifacts of popular culture not sufficiently explored elsewhere, though I may perhaps stray from that mission at times.
