AllMusic Review by

Here is a quick and dirty Jaheim anthology covering the singer's first three albums, all released on Warner Bros. -- Ghetto Love (2001), Still Ghetto (2002), and Ghetto Classics (2006). Released in time for the Christmas 2008 shopping season, it contains each one of Jaheim's charting singles from these releases, with the exception of "Backtight," plus "Looking for Love," a highlight from the debut that should have been a Top Ten R&B hit. With the albums destined to slide out of print, it wouldn't have hurt to throw on some more of the deeper cuts; the disc, after all, contains only nine songs and has the length (36 minutes) of a mid-line vinyl compilation. From a packaging standpoint, Jaheim deserved better. The typeface is a challenge to any set of eyes.
