**** Disc 1 is much stronger than Disc 2 but there are some absolute classics of the year on here: If You Could Only See, Your Woman, Lovefool and Semi Charmed Life specifically for me. I would agree that there's a lot of filler though.
**** I agree this compilation was a weak one for a best of but when you look at 1997 and the top 50 or even top 100 year end chart was there anything else that could have been included?
Most of the top 50 were with other record companies which featured on the Hit Machine series.
Perhaps a different Savage Garden single and the inclusion of CHUMBAWAMBA but otherwise there was really nothing the 100% series could have done as 1997 was a lacking and weak year for them.
Daft Punk, Matchbox 20, Bryan Adams, U2 and Quad City DJ's could have also featured on this compilation and would have made it a little better but I don't think these artists/record companies would have allowed their single to be on it.
