I'm sure that most people who buy this - like the previous reviewers - will already have either volume 1 or 2 of Power Ballads. They were excellent surveys of rock ballads to be sure, but probably best if you were a teenage rocker in the 1980s! Where this album improves is in providing much more modern tracks mixed in with old. Anastasia's is probably the newest and clearly the marketing hook. However, having listened to the rest, they are almost all tracks that anyone will recognise from the last 20 years or so.
Show me Heaven, Stop, Up where we belong, Holding out for a hero - for example - are just some of the great songs here that are all the better for being known but not played to death like so much of the second rate new poop[sic] music on the airwaves these days. Except The Final Countdown. Urgh!
Pandora's Box 'It's All Coming Back To Me Now': better than Celine Dion by a mile. And Jamelia's track is great too but I'm not sure who sings the original. Etc. Etc. I could go through them all but the best thing to say is: if you like rock you will find much to give satisafaction.
A properly great compliation - buy it because they don't come along all that often!
