Product Description

Product Description

CD Motown, 530 018-2, 1992, 16 Track

Amazon.co.uk

Lionel's decision to release a second hits compilation within a decade may have had something to do with the fact that sales of the first were overshadowed by a spousal abuse charge; unsurprisingly then, there isn't too much to distinguish this from the other one. Certain critics have commended Lionel for having spurned the whims of fashion and persisted with sentimental love songs like "Say You Say Me" and "Penny Lover", whatever the weather, and, listening to the tacky 1980s synths of the more upbeat "Running With The Night", it's hard to disagree. Lionel's obviously at his most comfortable with the power ballad--so much so that he has no idea when to exercise a little restraint. For all its baggage--the sickly video with that blind girl and its terrible lyrics--there's the chord structure to a good Charles Aznavour song trying to get out of "Hello", but it's drowning in syrup. Perhaps it's time for a reunion of the old band: the inclusion of "Sail On", "Three Times A Lady" and "Easy" (all Commodores songs) suggests as much. --Peter Paphides

There is no denying that Lionel Richie is a superstar in the soul music genre.
A lot of soul fans will disagree with this statement as Richie has become very middle of the road with his more recent music. Even some of the songs on this set will have soul boys turning up there noses.
"Back To Front" has tracks on it which will be forever marked as "Classic". Some of the tracks are no doubt on the slushy side. "Hello" the most notable one with the annoying video. But its vintage Richie. Its beautiful, corny and beautiful again.
"My Destiny" is another classic. Its of course catchy but one which showcases the voice that he possess.
"All Night Long" again is classic and one of the many many Richie songs that gets so much radio play. Everyone knows this song. Its typical accessable Lionel Richie - a song for all.
"Easy" is perhaps the best ever song written by the man. Sung while still with the Commadores, "Easy" is a track you can't hate.
Ballads have always been his forte. And all the classics are here in the bucket loads.
One of the best duets of all time, "Endless Love" with Diana Ross is here, with the heart wrenching "Stuck On You" the soulful "Penny Lover and the anthem "Say You Say Me".
Its all here on this excellent and now so cheap history of a superstar - Lionel Richie.
His music may not be "black" enough for some, and yes true he does attract a more middle of the road radio 2 listener - but that doesn't detract from the fact that Lionel Richie has had hit after hit and has made classic after classic.

I have liked Lionel's songs since young, and this compilation contains most of those which i prefer, but sadly the sound quality on this disc ranges from quite okay to downright atrocious! Especially track 7 "Endless Love", in my opinion one of the best songs here, but it sounds like a 64kbps mp3 file!

Who can not like Lionel Richie? great love songs, some are up beat and some are slow. They maybe out of date but still classic songs worth listening to. :)

Without fear of exaggeration, I reckon this is undoubtedly a classic, and how anyone can say otherwise is beyond me. I don't know anyone who doesn't love at least one Lionel song, and if they listen to this, they'd love a lot more. "One More Time," "My Destiny," "All Night Long," "Hello" and "Stuck On You" are some of the truly great songs of our generation. Sure, its a little syrupy and romantic at times, but the sheer quality of the songwriting jumps out at you. Possibly an album responsible for more marriages than any other, and one of those that quite simply, everyone should own.

This is just a perfect album of Lionel's best songs.

I don't think he got the recognition he deserved as he was in an era when there were so many talented artists. When you listen to the songs, you actually realise how many you actually played and danced to at parties, included as part of compilations for loved ones and sung along to in the car :)

Thanks Lionel for bringing back so many fond memories.

You either like Lional Ritchie or you don't. However, this album is one that will delight his fans and will probably gain him a few more after listening to it. The album features Still, three times a lady and Hello as well as more up tempo numbers such as all night long. This is definately a gift item for mum and dads
friends and lovers. Guaranteed sing alongability

This album is nothing other than excellent. While many albums may have 3 or 4 songs that sound great and you're left wondering why the heck did you buy it or trying really hard to love the other songs you know you won't, this one is different: every song is great and you can listen to the entire album feeling more than content with your purchase. ;-)

A previous reviewer made mention of the absence of 'Dancing on The Ceiling'. Didn't really notice it when you have old hits such as Hello, Penny Lover, Say You Say Me, Three Times a Lady and practically the rest of the album save 'Do It To Me', 'My Destiny' and Love Oh Love. The latter really turbo boosts an already rocket powered album.
