AllMusic Review by

Released to coincide with Frank Sinatra's 75th birthday, the three-disc set The Capitol Years has an abundance of classic Sinatra performances; however, it isn't the best place to hear most of these cuts. Sinatra's Capitol albums were designed as cohesive works and it is disconcerting to hear all of the different moods jammed together on one collection, with a handful of singles used as breathers. There is certainly plenty of wonderful music here, and the box is somewhat of an effective sampler, but to really appreciate what the singer achieved during the '50s, it is necessary to listen to the original albums.
