Come Get It: The Very Best of Aaron Carter is American teen pop singer Aaron Carter's second compilation album, released in 2006.[4] The album received mixed reviews, with ChartAttack calling it inexplicable.[5]

Background[edit]

Come Get It: The Very Best of Aaron Carter is the fifth and final overall album released under the Jive Records label. Carter's recording career had come to a halt since his lawsuit against Lou Pearlman in 2003.[6][7] By 2006, Carter had begun to transition away from recording and into reality television with the premiere of the reality show House of Carters.[8]

Track information[edit]

Track 1, "Aaron's Party (Come Get It)" peaked at #35 on the Billboard Hot 100 the week of September 16, 2000.[9]

Tracks 6 and 7 did not chart but were part of a landmark cross-promotion deal between Nickelodeon Records and Jive Records.[10]

Track 9, "I'm All About You", landed on Top 40 radio in 2002.[11]

Despite both charting in the Top 10 in the United Kingdom, neither "Crush on You" or "Crazy Little Party Girl" appear on this compilation.[12] No definitive statement was given for their omission, however Carter is known to dislike his debut album and original singing voice.[13] This was the second compilation album of his, after 2003's Most Requested Hits where no songs from his debut album were featured.

Critical reception[edit]

Writing for AllMusic, Stephen Thomas Erlewine praises the compilation for its tighter and more concise approach to Carter's discography, compared to 2003's Most Requested Hits. Erlewine also notes the omission of "Shake It", Carter's first hit, and Carter's cover of "Surfin' USA", both tracks present on his debut album.[2]

rateyourmusic reviewers have given the album an aggregate score of 1.58 out of 5 from a pool of ten user scores.[3]
