It really doesn't matter what language this album is sung in - it is quite simply brilliant. It really is the best of Laura Pausini and if you only buy one of her albums - make sure it is this one. E ritorno da te (listen to a sample if you can)- is a wonderful moving ballad and a great introduction. If you have to have a song in English, this is catered for too - with the track "one more time" which features on the soundtrack for the film "Message in a bottle", and its a truly moving song about love lost. Its not all ballads - theres some upbeat tempos, the odd well crafted more pop oriented track - a real mixture that you are bound to enjoy. I bought this album in Venice having heard her new single - and it did not come out of the cd player for the whole drive back to the UK. Cracking stuff!!

This is my first Laura Pausini CD, but certainly won't be my last; it is an exceptional compilation spanning the years 1993 through 2000, though the early ones have been updated, and read "2001 version".
"Seamisai (sei que me amavas)" is a duet with Brazilian singer/songwriter Gilberto Gil from Laura's 1996 "Le Cose Che Vive" CD, and she sings one song in English, from the soundtrack of the 1999 Kevin Costner film "Message in a Bottle", and it is exquisite, and features the great Dean Parks on guitar.
A winner of many awards, Laura won first place with "La Solitudine" at the prestigious San Remo Festival in '93 when she was 19 years old, and third place with "Strani Amori" in '95.
Laura's voice has a tender and smoky sound when singing softly, and has a powerful high register which she uses masterfully (in this respect she can be compared somewhat to Celine Dion) and her pitch is perfection...it reminds me of a tennis player hitting the ball in the sweetspot of the racket...Laura hits each note in its sweetspot.
The arrangements are lush and beautiful, and many of the songs incredibly lovely, and could not possibly be sung better. The sound is terrific and total playing time is 66'24.

This collection is truly the best of the best. It includes the most popular and well-known songs by Laura Pausini plus a new one, right up to her standard. You don't have to understand Italian to appreciate the voice or the music.
Laura transcends language and this CD is total enjoyment.

Excellent compilation of some of Lauras music. 'Best Of' is misleading in that everything this talented Italian records is superb. Included are reworkings of La Solitudine and a memorable upbeat version of Non C'e. This singer has quickly become very popular in most of Europe and also in the more 'latin' areas of the US. You don't have to understand Italian to appreciate her music, just give it a listen. Let's get her into the rest of North America and the UK.

I was watching a film & there was this beautiful song playing in the background. I spent some time trying to find out who & what it was, and finally I found Laura Pausini !

This is the only foreign language cd I have; I don't understand a word of it, but it just doesn't matter, it's really beautiful, particularly tracks 11 & 13 - my current favourite album.

Michael Buble fans would have heard Laura singing a duet with him on his debut album, and again on stage in his latest concert DVD. This is a 'best of' album, and contains a refreshing range of musical styles. Pleasant lounge music indeed.

I love this CD. Laura Pausini has a lovely voice and as I am learning Italian this is very useful as she sings clearly and translations are available on line for most of her songs.

First heard Laura Pausini being played in a French market and just had to get the CD. If you like beautiful, gentle songs sung in a beautiful language ....

This was my first buy of Alura Pausini and I was a little disapointed.
Maybe this just doesnt appeal to me and I am sure that there are other albums which would and therefore I will try again
