5.0 out of 5 stars A true delight 11 Jan 2006
Format:Audio CD
I came to this CD via my enjoyment of Katherine Jenkins and the reading of a very negative review of her new album that compared her to Sarah. Of course I knew Sarah from her ALW stuff but not her more mainstream performances. To begin, it is crass in the extreme to compare the two singers. Both beautiful women. One soprano, one mezzo. One experienced in all sorts of music, one not so but learning fast. But, surely, anybody can hear (and see!) that both are a delight.
I was mesmerised by this CD. Not overly fond of 'modern' music I was fully captured by the variation on this disc. No opera at all but still superb (well for me anyway who loves opera).
The arrangements are, for the most part, sumptuous and atmospheric and the singing is, well, superb!
This is my first Sarah Brightman CD. It goes with her La Luna concert DVD (an Xmas gift) and will not be the last.
Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars The very best indeed! 31 May 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This CD has a gret mix of Sarah Brightman's songs from various albums, it shows her voice at different styles. It also has a un-realeased track called The Last words you said. The albums these songs are taken from are: Fly, Timeless, Eden, Dive and La Luna. If you're not sure which album to get, buy this! I wasn't sure which one to get for my daughter so I got this, now she knows which one she wants! The best and most wonderful tracks are on this e.g Just show me how to love you and Time to say Goodbye. A great choice for the unsure and Sarah Brightman fans!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Of Sarah Brightman 14 Oct 2002
Format:Audio CD
This CD was the first CD I ever bought of Sarah's. No wonder I continued buying more of her albums after! This CD is just beautiful. I wasn't sure about it at first, because I'm not an Opera fan, but she makes me appreciate it. I like all the songs on this album but the weakest is probably 'La Mer'.

Her voice ranges from opera to pop, both categories she sounds beautiful. Best songs on here have to be 'Time to say goodbye (Con Te Partiro)', 'Tu Quieres Volver', 'Deliver Me', 'Only an Ocean Away' and 'Heaven Is Here'. Covers such as 'First Of May', 'A Whiter Shade Of Pale' and 'Who Wants To Live Forever' are of very high quality, she makes the songs her own. Whether it was the Bee Gee's or Queen!

I highly recommend this album to any beginner Sarah fans, she'll reel you in.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best of 27 Sep 2005
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Sarah Brightman crossed over from showtunes to ethereal pop over the years, changing her image with nearly every album. From the velvety grandeur of "Eden" to the sparkling "La Luna" to the surreal "Fly." Several of the best songs from the 1990-2000 period are included here, and except for a few omissions, it's a top-rate collection of singles.

It kicks off with two songs from her early pop period, the epic "Question of Honour" and organ-dominated "Heaven is Here." There's also a cover of the Bee Gees' "First of May." Then she dips into the melancholy "Who Wants to Live Forever," the rich "Tu Quiere Volver," the rich "Just Show Me How to Love You" and the pretty duet with Andrea Bocelli, "Time to Say Goodbye."

Then it's time for a look at Brightman's more recent creations. These songs tend to be more textured and symphonic, and less spacey. There's the hymnlike, vaguely sexy "Eden," ethereal "Nella Fantasia," the soaringly earthy "Deliver Me," and the aching "Only an Ocean Away." Taking on a more ethereal sound is the soft "Scarborough Fair," and richly psychedelic "Whiter Shade of Pale," followed by live versions of of "Captain Nemo" and "Mer." It wraps up on a sweet note with the silky, murmuring "The Last Words You Said."

Brightman has a good enough track record -- and a long enough career -- that it's hard not to wish for a two-disc set of her best songs from that era. With this release, Brightman has a chance to smooth over some of her odder past songs (like that Tom Jones duet) and focus just on the best she did in every album during that ten-year period. Some of her songs seem to have gotten lost in the shuffle. For example, where is the beautiful "Desert Rose"?

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful 1 Jun 2001
Format:Audio CD
First I want to discuss the 'music' on this album. It is incredible. The tracks have been carefully chosen from Sarah's more 'poppy' catalogue, as opposed to her classical tracks. Tracks like 'Question of Honour' (a brilliant dance track), to 'Captain Nemo', prove to show that she can sing any style. It also includes the fantastic ballads, 'Deliver Me', 'Time to Say Goodbye', 'Tu quieres Volver' and a lovely track previously only available in Japan, a duet with Richard Marx....

5.0 out of 5 stars Sarah Brightman Classics 14 Jan 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I remember first being exposed to the wonderful music of Sarah Brightman when I first heard her songs "Deliver Me", "Eden", and "Beautiful". I wish that I can tell you for sure which song that I heard first, but what I can tell you for certain is that hearing those three songs enough times inspired me to purchase one of her greatest hits compilation. I chose this one because of the positive reviews and the diverse song selection that it has. I am glad that I went with doing that because all of the songs are very good. The songs that I must definitely recommend listening to first on this cd are "a question of honor part 2", "heaven is here", "only an ocean away", "eden", "deliver me,", and "scarborough fair". I only wish that "Beautiful" would have been included in this collection. My overall favorite song in Sarah Brightman's greatest hits collection would certainly have to be "Deliver Me". "Deliver Me" is a beautiful and joyful song that talks about how someone has isolated themselves from the outside world their whole life and kept their emotional guard completely up and closed until they encountered a person that they felt safe to reveal their true self too. In addition, I like how Sarah pours her emotion and spirit into the song. Overall Sarah's gorgeous vocals, and the beautiful songs on this cd both add up to a creative and terrific combination. It is definitely gently suggested to consider this cd if any and/or all of the following apply to you: you enjoy music by Enya, Enigma, and/or Celtic/New Age music imported from Europe.
