"SpongeBob's Greatest Hits" features 17 original tracks familiar to audiences from the Nickelodeon animated series SpongeBob SquarePants. The zany square-shaped, yellow sponge with the comedic timing of Carrot Top and the sharp wit of Russell Brand is celebrating 10 years on the network with a slew of singalong tunes including "We've Got Scurvy" performed by Pink and a reggae-inspired remix of the SpongeBob SquarePants Theme Song sung by Cee-Lo Green of Gnarls Barkley. The bonus track "Don't Be A Jerk (It's Christmas)" is a special treat for audiences co-written by Tom Kenny, the voice of SpongeBob, and Andy Paley. The album is a vibrant dance party stoked by sunny-pop grooves and doo-wop embers fashioned to celebrate SpongeBob SquarePants 10th Anniversary.

Opening with the SpongeBob Theme Song re-mastered into a seafaring chantey, the album stays true to the cartoon's jovial mood and singalong jingles. The doo-wop harmonizing in "Ripped Pants" has a Beach Boys feel, and the bubbly, sock-hop grooves of "Where's Gary?" are embossed with a '50s pop shimmer which transforms into a dazzling choir made to incite audience participation in "My Tighty Whiteys." The old school surfer punk riffs of "Doing The Sponge" turns this dance number into a beach party jam, which then shifts into a house-club inspired laser-light show in "Stadium Rave." The metal rock riffs of "Goofy Goober Rock" are copied straight from Twisted Sisters tune "I Wanna Rock," and the saloon style of the piano keys in "Idiot Friends" have a jovial gait that is reminiscent of the Old West and Americana tunes. The blue-eyed soul trimmings of "Gary's Song" are reflective of Taylor Hicks' pensive expressions, and the orchestral springs of "The Bubble Song" have a sunny-pop vibration that can brighten any day. The reggae stylizing of SpongeBob's Theme Song performed by Cee-Lo Green gives the track a Caribbean flare, while the Celtic-wrapped hooks of "We've Got Scurvy" resonate with a Lord Of The Dance pomp.

SpongeBob SquarePants Greatest Hits fosters a party climate and a celebratory mood. The cartoon's creator Steve Hillenburg has witnessed his creation grow into a pop culture icon over the years, and this album revels in the humor and joviality that SpongeBob and his friends radiate. It's an album that fans of the cartoon series can enjoy and count on to give their spirit a jolt upward.
