Do not miss this extraordinary album. It's a compilation of the work of an American musical genius, an aptly titled CD indeed. Virtually every record on this anthology is a tremendous exercise of Zevon's lyrical brilliance; and every one of them should've gotten much more airplay than they actually received upon their release. Not only are they lyrically superb and exquisite, they're also loaded with catchy hooks."Genius" is one of the finest 'greatest hits' albums ever put together. It immediately grows on you. Pick it up to experience an artist who should be much, much more well known by the American public.
