LeAnn Rimes - "Give"

Biography

Doing the unexpected has almost become expected of LeAnn Rimes. From her hit “Blue” nearly 15 years ago to her impressive new concept album of classic country standards, Lady & Gentlemen, LeAnn has always bravely followed her own inner compass and consistently maintained her musical integrity rather than simply following the musical trends of the day.

Product Description

LEANN RIMES The Best Of (2004 UK CD album featuring all the hits including duets with Ronan Keating and Elton John plus remixes picture sleeve)

Amazon.co.uk

Not many artists can boast a Best Of album by their 21st birthday, but then not everybody logs a Lolita-ish hit at age 13, as the precocious Leann Rimes did with the retro "Blue" in 1996. In many ways, that auspicious debut was her finest hour, full of hypnotic, yodel-laced magic and savant-like promise. Since then, she's recorded a fair amount of bankable pop ("One Way Ticket", "Can't Fight the Moonlight") and a seemingly bottomless well of tripe ("You Light Up My Life", "Written in the Stars" with Elton John). It all sits back-to-back on this collection of familiar tunes, braced with new audio recordings: "This Love" and "Last Thing on My Mind". Alas, of the new songs, they point up the weakness of much of Rimes' career; her connect-the-dots emotionality. Best advice: put the player on "repeat" and enjoy the royal "Blue" treat that got this career rolling, before the aerobicised videos and the embarrassing lawsuit. --Alanna Nash

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic!!! 8 Feb 2004
By Lynsey
Format:Audio CD
This is just an amazing album, there are so many great tracks aswell as the duets with Ronan Keating and Elton John which are both great songs. Leann has acheived so much for a girl her age and it all shows in the album, I would say the best tracks are Life goes on, cant fight the moonlight, how do I live, and written in the stars (duet with Elton John) She also sings a brilliant version of Patsy Clines Crazy. I would say this is a must have for anyones CD collection!

5.0 out of 5 stars A compilation demonstrating LeAnn's diversity 12 April 2009
By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
LeAnn Rimes has had an interesting career to say the least, with some of her albums being squarely aimed at pop fans, others squarely aimed at country fans, while the rest are somewhere in between. People can make up their own minds what they like best. This compilation, based on her American greatest hits compilation but with a couple of bonus remixes, has a bit of everything from LeAnn's early years to 2003, though it focuses mainly on LeAnn`s pop music.

Country fans the world over became aware of LeAnn's talents as a result of her debut album in 1996, represented here by two tracks (Blue, One way ticket). In 1997, LeAnn recorded How do I live. Trisha Yearwood was also persuaded to record the song and her version became a number one American country hit, while making a token appearance in the British pop charts. LeAnn's version became a huge American pop hit and eventually made the top ten in the British pop charts (several months after Trisha`s version made its brief UK chart appearance). I don't think there's a lot to choose between the two versions (maybe Trisha`s version is slightly better), but both of them had a lot of success with the song in different countries. With LeAnn's version making it in the pop charts but not the country charts, this was some kind of signal that she should cater for pop fans as well as (or maybe instead of) country fans, hence LeAnn's subsequent recordings have often veered towards pop music.

In Britain, LeAnn had a number one hit with Can't fight the moonlight (from the soundtrack of Coyote ugly) and a top ten hit duet with Elton John (Written in the stars). She also came close to the top ten with two other hits (I need you, Life goes on). All of those tracks are included here, along with her minor UK hits.

5.0 out of 5 stars LeAnn's BEST Yet! 10 Nov 2004
Format:Audio CD
I've always been a fan of LeAnn Rimes, and when I bought this album, it was everything I expected it to be! All her best hits are all contained on here, including Blue, Can't Fight The Moonlight, How Do I Live?, Commitment & her newest single with Ronan Keating, 'Last Ting On My Mind'. Well worth the money!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Remarkable Career on one Album 14 Feb 2004
Format:Audio CD
At 21 it seems to soon to release a best of album but LeAnn Rimes has been recording since age 13. You can't really tell that she was a young teenager when some of these songs were recorded, even then her voice could compete with the vocals of Christina Aguilera or Beyonce Knowles.
The first song on the album "Can't Fight The Moonlight" was a fantastic pop song from the "Coyote Ugly" soundtrack and a UK number one, the song has a great vibe and some brilliant vocals. The song was on LeAnn's first pop album "I Need You" with the title tracck featured on this album, it's a ballad displaying a strong talent. Also from the Coyote Ugly soundtrack are the brilliant "The Right Kind of Wrong" and "But I Do Love You" which you will love. The amazing ballad "How Do I Live" which was her biggest selling single ever and the best selling country single of all time, it sold 750 000 in the UK alone and reached number 7, the song is breathtaking and the vocals are just fantastic. New single "This Love" is wonderful and shows that LeAnn Rimes is still one of the most talented vocalists even today. The duet with Ronan Keaton is spoilt by Ronan, i'm not a fan of his singing but if you like his voice then you would like it because it is a good song. Elton John also duets with her on the ballad "Written in The Stars" which i love as it is a wonderful song and both artists put in strong vocal effort. The theme song to "Legally Blonde 2", "We Can" is fantastic, the song is incredibly catchy and vocally stunning, it's a strong competitor with "Can't Fight The Moonlight", two very brilliant songs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Greatest Hits 1 Jan 2005
Format:Audio CD
Leann Rimes career hasn't exactly followed a conventional path. She first burst onto the music scene with "Blue" a song written for the late Patsy Cline. She immediately moved out of traditional Country to Country Pop and released a string of Hits. Her "Pop Country" career peaked with the release of her version of the Diane Warren penned "How Do I Live". That song simply refused to go away and set too many industry records to mention. She sustained this career peak by recording 4 more Warren tunes for the "Coyote Ugly" Soundtrack: "Can't Fight the Moonlight", "Please Remember", "But I Do Love You" and "The Right Kind of Wrong". Her gorgeous "I Need You" from a TV Miniseries Soundtrack is a highlight of this CD. Fans of great Female Vocalists should also check out Amber - My Kind of World. Though stylistically different than Leann (Amber is Pop/Rock), she shares Leann's vocal talent. "My Kind of World" contains the #1 Hit "You Move Me", the followup Single "Voodoo", as well as the Whitney Houston Meets Anastacia Power Ballad "Sacrificial Lamb" and the Pat Benatar-esque "Just Like That". This CD will appeal to fans of Leann's Pop and Dance Hits! My advice? Get Leann Rimes "Greatest Hits" and Amber - "My Kind of World".
