5.0 out of 5 stars Louise never fails to impress!, 24 Aug. 2001
By 
csturzaker@tasmail.com (Launceston, Australia) - See all my reviews
Wow! Louise returns after last year's Elbow Beach to deliver a stunning package of her singles to date. This album covers her career from Eternal to the present, which includes her current single "Stuck In The Middle With You" and her re-working of "The Slightest Touch". This is a great album to own for both dedicated Louise fans and those who have liked her songs but haven't purchased any of her previous Cd's.
The inclusion of radio mixes of her singles is fantastic as these versions of "One Kiss From Heaven" and "Undivided Love" are far superior than the album versions. All in all this is a superb package that showcases the impact Louise has made on pop music in the 90's.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic hits collection from the Queen of UK pop, 11 Aug. 2001
By A Customer
As a rule female pop stars in the UK don't have much of a shelf life. Recent popstars Billie Piper and Lolly fizzled out after just two albums. So it's quite an achievement that Louise has survived in the industry through nine years and five albums, and she remains one of the great sex symbols of our generation, having occupied the top 15 of FHM's top 100 sexiest women for years. As part of Eternal she redefined UK RnB, and as a solo artist she has created some of the classic pop songs of the 90's. This collection includes not only her solo hits, but 3 songs she originally recorded with Eternal, oh baby i, stay and just a step from heaven, re-recorded with her on lead vocals, and 3 new songs. And there's not a weak track among them. Naked is one of the most classy pop songs ever recorded, and sounds as good now as it did when it first rocketed into the top 5. 2 Faced is still a kick-ass piece of pop bitchery and Songs like arms around the world and let's go round again are still classic. In fact listening to this it's hard to believe not one of these songs made it to #1. She even manages to make a good job of covering Stealers wheel classic "stuck in the middle with you." Overall this is a great purchase for Louise fans, and a fantastic starting point for those new to this excellent and enduring artist.

5.0 out of 5 stars Changing Faces- Louise, 12 Oct. 2002
This is the type of album that you should listen to before going out for the evening. It includes some tracks from her earlier days in Eternal. Most tracks are catchy and indeed the slower ones are indeed very soulful. This album captures the very best of Louise and she also covers Five Star's The Slightest Touch- which she has done so very well. Top marks

5.0 out of 5 stars An album full of fantastic pop music!, 23 Aug. 2001
By A Customer
Louise returns once again with a new single, and a new album - only this time it's a greatest hits! Everything is here - from the moving ballad 'Light of my Life' to the disco beats of 'Let's Go Round Again'. There are also 3 Eternal tracks on the album 'Stay', 'Oh Baby I...', and 'Just A Step From Heaven' - 3 brilliant RnB/Pop tracks when Louise was still in the band.
Louise has also included three new singles on the album. 'Stuck In The Middle With You' - a funky cover of Steeler's Wheels classic hit - given a new sound and a new look for 2001. Louise has also covered Five Stars top 5 hit 'The Slightest Touch'. There is also a brand new track called 'Come & Get It'. This album is definitely worth a buy!

5.0 out of 5 stars The real UK POP QUEEN!, 23 Aug. 2001
By A Customer
With this album Louise shows she is the queen of UK pop. The 16 jewels included here say it all: the Eternal times ( the stompers Stay, Just a Step and the hypnotising Oh Baby I... ), the hits from Naked ( orchestral Light Of My Life, dancey In Walked Love, sexy Naked and One Kiss From Heaven and gospel/funky Undivided Love ). Her five last singles are her best singles: the fantastic/sexy/hypnotising Arms Around The World, the wonderful-catchy Let's Go Round Again, the beautiful All That Matters and the intelligent/sexy/dancey 2 Faced and Beautiful Inside. Not to forget the 3 new tracks: Stuck In The Middle With You, The Slightest Touch and Come And Get It.
Well done, Louise!

5.0 out of 5 stars Slick soul pop, 14 July 2011
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
From her first appearance as part of the otherwise black girl group Eternal, it was clear that pretty Louise with an unremarkable but tuneful voice was going to do very well. She reminded me of the young Olivia Newton John, and I think its possible that with the right songwriters and producers, and probably a different music direction towards pure pop or country style, she could have made a big breakthrough across the pond as well as the UK, just like Olivia. As it turned out, she nevertheless scored a successful string of delicious singles in her home country, both with Eternal and later as a solo artist.

The highlights here are Naked, the terrific 2-faced, sensual Stay and Arms Around the World. The cover of Stuck in the Middle with You is an interesting twist on the old Stealer's Wheel hit, not an obvious choice for Louise but I actually like her version. This is slick soul pop at its best, but I always felt she missed out on challenging those silky vocals a little more.

This first hits collection is more comprehensive than the one released later. The music does become slightly bland but its still a lovely confection. Well done Mrs Redknapp!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of nineties Britpop, 6 Jun. 2003
By 
Peter Durward Harris "Pete the music fan" (Leicester England) - See all my reviews
(No. 1 Hall OF FAME REVIEWER)    (TOP 50 REVIEWER)   
Louise is a fine singer who began her career with the group Eternal. She recorded one album with them, yielding the British top ten hits Stay, Just a step from heaven and Oh baby, which peaked at 4, 8 and 4 respectively.
After splitting from Eternal to go solo, she recorded three albums prior to this greatest hits package. The singles released from those albums were very successful, all reaching the UK top twenty and many of them reaching the top ten. Her biggest hits were Two faced and Arms around the world, which peaked at 3 and 4 respectively.
Many of her songs were originals, but she also had hits with Stuck in the middle with you (Stealers wheel), Let's go round again (Average white band) and The slightest touch (Five star). All of these were updated to suit Louise’s style.
Louise is a brilliant singer whose music is well worth investigating, if you are even a little bit interested in nineties Britpop.
