This three-decade anthology of Temptations hits tries to cover a lot of time in the short span of 11 cuts. In fact, after 1975 or so, the Temptations weren't so temptin' when it came to scoring major hits. True, the early part of the 1970s produced several major milestones--the gossamer "Just My Imagination (Running Away with Me)," the dramatic "Papa Was a Rollin' Stone," and the psychedelic protest song "Ball of Confusion"--and those cuts alone could pretty much justify the budget price of this set. The '80s are represented here by only two cuts, the disco-ish "Treat Her Like a Lady" and "Standing on the Top" (an incongruous match with punk-funk king Rick James). Only the ultraslick ballad "Stay," which samples some of their earlier hit, "My Girl," represents the '90s. Ultimately, this attempt to emphasize the act's longevity backfires. --Daniel Durchholz
