Well, it doesn't surprise anyone that this album went straight to the top, least of all me. This album helps you think back to when Boyzone first came out and realise how much they and their style of music has changed. A brilliant album that any fan would love, it's a real credit to the lads.Well Done!!!

Ronan Keating, Stephen Gately, Keith Duffy, Shane Lynch and Mikey Graham together made up Boyzone. Although UK singles charts of the nineties (and since) are much less important than charts from earlier decades (because of the dwindling singles market), Boyzone had an impressive run in the singles charts (every track here made the UK top four - seven made number one and six others made number two) while they were together and they also sold over ten million albums (including this one to me) - so their appeal stretched far beyond singles buyers. I suppose their style of music would best be described as soft rock.
Their hits were a mix of originals and covers, the latter coming from a wide range of sources. The covers include Love me for a reason (Osmonds), Father and son (Cat Stevens), Words (Bee Gees), Baby can I hold you (Tracy Chapman), When the going gets tough (Billy Ocean) and You needed me (Anne Murray). When you say nothing at all (originally recorded by country singer Keith Whitley but made more famous by bluegrass singer Alison Krauss) is actually a Ronan Keating solo track. The opening track, I love the way you love me, also began as a country song, being co-written by Victoria Shaw who has written songs for Garth Brooks among others. The members of Boyzone wrote some of their own songs including Picture of you, Isn't it a wonder, A different beat, So good, Coming home now and Key to my life.
At around the time this compilation was originally released, Ronan Keating went solo and the group disbanded. Ronan has been very successful as a solo singer and his solo greatest hits album (which also includes When you say nothing at all) was a big seller in the UK when released in time for Christmas 2004. The music on this compilation is the best of what he and the others did before he went solo.

A great album with a song for everyone. It really shows how boyzone have progressed, however fans from the beginning will relate more to the earlier songs. Songs which stick out include "No matter what" "Words" " I love the way you love me" and for I personally like ronan's solo track "when you say nothing at all". A great album with three new songs and a lot of memories. Here's to the next greatest hits album!

I don't think it's yet possible to be imprisoned for showing an affinity for Boyzone, but has there ever been a band with a greater negative stigma attached to their name? Take 'By Request' for example. If this had have been created by a band with a different name on the cover it would have been greeted with open arms, hailed as virtual genius. Because it was Boyzone, though, it was given no real recognition by the music police. 'By Request' isn't perfect, if only because we get the usual Boyzone failings of the odd Jackanory sentiment and occasional overmusicianship, but the postives outweigh the negatives. Ronan Keating's voice is in turn tearjerking, even beautiful. Simon Mayo might refuse to play their songs on his programme and give them the artistic recognition they deserve, but who cares? This is a fine CD by a band of superb musicians. Don't watch the videos, don't even look at a picture, it will only explode the myth.

This album shows how successful the boyz are and how far they have come in their six years. It features best-sellers such as No Matter What and Father and Son but also the great songs that did not quite make it to no.1 like the amazing cover of Tracy Chapman's Baby Can I Hold You. A brilliant album

This album proves more than ever that Boyzone has successfully managed the transition from being merely a boy band to a band with mass popular appeal accross a variety of barriers.
The order of the records could have been better thought out, That aside, this is a brilliant example of their work. I, for one, hope that this is the first of many such compilations, as the diversity of their music is limited only by the imagaination.
Ireland have done it again. This band is destined to be with us for many years to come. The Album has 16 top 5 singles & 7 No1's. It also includeds Ronan Keatings debut no 1 single "When you say nothing at all" used in the Film Nottings Hill.
The CD also comes with a form to join the UK Fan Club, but that can be just as easily over the internet if you were so inclined.
I couldn't award this CD a lower rating if I wanted to.

Boybands come and go, but not Boyzone. No-one knows exactly what part of their formula has guarenteed them success for the past six years, but band manager's all over the globe wish they could have just a little bit of it! With the release of the greatest hits, Boyzone fans realised just how much their music had developed over the six years they've been around. From the up-beat So Good to the mega-successful No Matter What, Boyzone bring their own Irish lilt to every song to make fans everywhere melt. Long may it continue!!!
