Eric Clapton – "Complete Clapton" This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By Marek H., Brooklyn, NY

Eric Clapton is one the most influential artists of all time, and this album was intended to sum up his career. However, the 2007 best-of ­album “Complete Clapton” leaves you feeling empty and wanting more.

The album can be broken ­into three sections: the golden years, pop, and back to the blues. The golden years are the main and supreme part of the album. “Complete Clapton” features five popular songs by Cream (Clapton’s first band), including “White Room,” “Crossroads,” and “Badge,” but only three tracks from later groups Blind Faith and Derek & the Dominos. It also features several tracks from early in Clapton’s solo career. Then the album starts down a slippery slope ­toward Eric’s pop era.
