5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic collection of songs
There is a wealth of quality material here and it isn't a hotchpotch of genres which means the album doesn't lose a listener's interest every other song - they're all good songs, surprisingly so, and they appeal to lovers of rock ballads, 80's rock and quality MOR. I'm into heavy rock, blues and some metal but I still have my quieter moments and this boxset is absolutely...

2.0 out of 5 stars Low Power Collection
Oh dear - the lights are on but there are only the usual people home! Most of these songs appear in most other compilation albums of the same type. Little innovation in the selection, a lack of variety, hardly any initiative, yet the punters keep on buying it, so it must be keeping somebody happy!

There is a wealth of quality material here and it isn't a hotchpotch of genres which means the album doesn't lose a listener's interest every other song - they're all good songs, surprisingly so, and they appeal to lovers of rock ballads, 80's rock and quality MOR. I'm into heavy rock, blues and some metal but I still have my quieter moments and this boxset is absolutely worth the money, no question. Cheesy title, yes, but just look at the contents! For once one of these 'greatest album in the world ever'-type compilations comes up trumps. Full-length album version of Bat Out Of Hell too, not the single edit!

5.0 out of 5 stars 'WALL TO WALL GREAT-SOUNDS', 5 July 2014
By

(TOP 500 REVIEWER)   
This review is from: The Very Best Of Power Ballads (Audio CD)
These compilations are nearly always packed with many favourite artists and
their songs, definitely 'Air-Guitar' music.
This 3-CD collection will get your feet tapping for sure, it gives a strong selection
of 'Rock' numbers we've all had occasion to dance too down the years.
As is often the case there are big-names missing, however there are many of the
names one first thinks of on these Power-Ballad selections, just, again to give an idea
of what's on offer i'll list just a few of the great sounds from each disc......Disc One.....
'Queen' --'We Are The Champions'........'Foreigner' --'I Want To Know What Love Is'...
.....'Mr Mister' --'Broken Wings'.......'Tina Turner' --'We Don't Need Another Hero'.......
'Meat Loaf' --'I'd Lie For You' (And That's The Truth)........'Alice Cooper' --'Poison'.....
and.......'Maria McKee' --'Show Me Heaven' ......just an example of the 17 great tracks
on disc one........on disc two........'The Cars' --'Drive'........'Chicago' --'Hard To Say I'm
Sorry'........'R.E.M' --'The One I Love'.......'The Rolling Stones' --'Streets of Love'........
'Nilsson' --'Without You'........'Frankie Goes To Hollywood' --'The Power Of Love'.......
and........'Nazareth' --'Love Hurts'.......again just some of the terrific tracks harboured
on disc two........on disc three........'Europe' --'The Final Countdown'.......'Billy Idol' --
'White Wedding'.......'Paul Carrack' --'Don't Shed A Tear'.......'4 Non Blondes' --'What's
Up'........'T'Pau' --'China In Your Hand'........and.......'Mike and the Mechanics' --'Over
My Shoulder'.......again just a random selection of the magic on-board disc three........
I've simply and randomly selected half a dozen or so tracks from each of the three CD's
on this compilation as a guide to whether or not you decide to check out the complete
track list.
Obviously as is the case with myself you'll have many if not all the numbers on-board
however, here we have many favourites in a different track order and selection to other
compilations we may have..
This Compilation has been around for a while, however if your looking at it for the first
time I'm sure you'll agree that it's a great selection of 'Power-Ballads' on-board, and just
maybe worth adding to your collection.
(One Criticism I often have with these compilations that include songs like 'Meat Loaf's'
'Bat Out Of Hell' is that they never seem to ever give the complete version, the last verse
is usually absent, however, on this collection...Good News....the last verse is on-board)

Arrived through normal post and good condition. Most of these songs are on American Anthem but still a great cd to sing out loud to. Great buy and recommend for music lovers.
