5.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars, 28 Sep 2003
This review is from: ...By Request (Audio CD)
Firstly I must say that I have been a Boyzone fan since I was 12, and listening to Boyzone's greatest hits album takes me back to that time, going to concerts with my best friends and screaming our hearts out at Ronan, Stephen, Keith, Shane and Mikey. At the time of release it was repeatly stated that the group were not going to split up and this was a their greatest hits "part one", but as we all know this is the last album the group were to release together.
All the hits are here, from the first UK single "Love me for a reason" from 1994 right up to "You needed me" which hit the No.1 spot in 1999, and famously outsold Geri Halliwell's debut solo single. The album starts with, in my opinion, Boyzone's best single "I love the way you love me" one of many cover versions, the track first appeared on "Where we belong" the groups last studio album, and reached no.2 in November 1998.
Other hightlights include "No matter what", taken from the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical "Whistle down the wind", "A Different Beat", "Father and Son" and Ronan Keating's debut solo single "When you say nothing at all". Also featured is three new tracks which first appeared on the American release of "Where we belong". "All the time in the world" is not bad, it's a bit bland in comparison with the other ballads on this album. "I'll never not need you" is one of my favourites as it's more uptempo and a great pop track. "So they told me" is a more RnB track and is very different to anything Boyzone have ever done before.
All in all a great album and well worth buying if you don't own a Boyzone album.
