    "Love this app! Not just for rap, but for everything. Making playlists is easy, and the search interface is good. I prefer it to iTunes. Of course it is much better if you have Music unlimited rather than just the free stuff on Prime, but at 8 bucks a month, this is still the best imo."

      "M83 transports me back to the eighties when I was kid watching a teen movie with Molly Ringwall or an early Nightmare on Elm St. break from killing scene, or running scene. However, this album is for a time such as now, the instrumentals have revived and refreshed the 80's sound in this album. The intro to M83 is like a book, from the very first paragraph you know whether the book is a put down or continue to read to the end. This album is indeed a listen to the end, and play over and over. If you want a quick escape, or vacation just pack these hits into a device that will allow you to hear the transporting beats, and dream."

      "M83 - Hurry Up, We're Dreaming is a multi genre offering from Anthony Gonzalez which combines elements of electronica, rock, pop and classic rock into the perfect mix of driving music. It's a double album which makes it even better for your road trip."

      "This album is great to listen to on a road trip if you listen to indie rock and alternative rock. The album is unique, interesting, and artsy. This album is very easy to listen to and comes across as relaxing but intriguing. Almost has an 80s vibe."

      "Rumours, the album by Fleetwood Mac, is one of my all-time favourite road trip albums, and one of the best albums ever, period. I took a trip with my boyfriend to New York City, and we listened to this album over and over on the way there and back. There is something so nice about listening to this album as you cruise along over the hills, and watch the clouds roll by. It's so fun to sing along to, and it's casual and wistful, and a great listen. My favourite song on the album is definitely Never Going Back Again, such a soft, sweet tune, with Second Hand News coming in at a close second."

      "The Band (with likely one of the most confusing band names of all time) has so many hits that are perfect to belt in the car. I have a strong love for a couple of songs, although that "old-timeyness" might not work for younger generations. I can see myself popping this in maybe once on a long road trip, but if you're a young adult, I bet you will have other music you prefer on road trips."

The album is rated fairly high on the Amazon page but there's only 44 reviews, which means the album itself isn't all that popular. Based on that, I'm not sure if I am completely convinced that this album would be considered the "best.""
