"Keepers" (2018) - Van's Best Ever Album?




Someone named Eustice said online "Pay the Devil is crap country boy. I like Keep Me Singing and Keep it Simple.  They're  "keepers". (Get it?)" 

That got me thinking about those two albums and whether they represent the best of his work for the new millennium.  One thing led to another and now I'm putting forward an album called Keepers (2018) consisting of tracks from only those two albums.  Don't call this a mix tape. The only thing you have to think about is:  is this better than OK Computer, Nevermind, Sgt Pepper's, Pet Sounds, Highway 61 Revisited, etc.?

Here's my list of songs for the new combination album:
Keepers 
01.   Let It Rhyme (KMS) - 3:53

02.   Every Time I See a River (KMS) - 4:43
03.   Keep Me Singing (KMS) - 3:39
04.   Out In the Cold Again (KMS) - 7:06
05.   Memory Lane (KMS) - 4:08
06.   Soul (KIS) - 3:37
07.   Holy Guardian Angel (KMS) - 6:18
08.   That's Entrainment (KIS) - 4:32
09.   In Tiburon (KMS) - 5:18
10.   Lover Come Back (KIS) - 5:15
11.   Look Beyond the Hill (KMS) - 2:28
