One of the most underrated UK singers of the 80s...
on 29 October 2009
'Nothing's Gonna Stop Me Now - The Greatest Hits...And More' really highlights the magnificent career of Samantha Fox, and is a great reminder of all the great hits she has given us.
Naturally quite a few of the songs on this CD (in fact 11 of the 20 tracks on disc 1) are the same as Samantha's previous official greatest hits package (Greatest Hits - 1992). It contains all the biggest hits from that album, including many iconic numbers, such as 'Touch Me (I Want Your Body)', 'Nothing's Gonna Stop Me Now', 'Do Ya Do Ya (Wanna Please Me)' and 'Naughty Girls (Need Love Too)'.
The rest of the album consist of remixes of some of these songs as well previously unreleased tracks recorded with Stock Aitken Waterman. This is the first time these songs have been together on one disc - and so, this alone is a very good reason to buy this album.
Unfortunately lower charting singles like '(Hurt Me! Hurt Me!) But The Pants Stay On', 'Let Me Be Free', 'All I Wanna Do...', 'Spirit Of America' and 'Just One Night' to name a few, are completely absent from this compilation, thus only 4 stars. On the positive side we get 'I'm All You Need' and 'True Devotion' which were not featured on the previous collection, two of Sam's best ever singles in my opinion.
I would still recommend `Nothing's Gonna Stop Me Now` to any music fan, as it is a clear explanation of why Samantha Fox was one of the most successful singers on both sides of the Atlantic in the 80s. A true pop star!
