A full examination of human nature is featured in this greatest hits compilation.

Tracy Chapman is a gifted singer-songwriter who is maybe better described as a lyrical storyteller.  It is difficult to categorize Chapman's style  - maybe best described as a blend of folk/R&B/rock - and her music sounds like it could have been created anytime in the last couple of decades.  Her lyrics range just as much as her style, covering themes of personal relationships gone wrong to highlighting societal issues of disenfranchisement and poverty.  Regardless of the song, Chapman delivers insight into human nature.
