Product description

Boyzone (Boy Band) - By Request - Cd

Amazon.co.uk

Boyzone have always favoured covers--from their earliest singles (versions of 1970s pop groups the Detroit Spinners' "Working My Way Back To You" and the Osmonds' "Love Me For A Reason") to their first million-selling hit, a faithful reading of Australian high-pitched harmony singers, the Bee Gees' "Words". So the release of By Request compilation of cover versions in 1999 came as no real surprise, then. What is a surprise, however, is the amount of emotion and pathos Ronan and co-manage to invest in songs like Cat Stevens' "Father & Son" and Tracy Chapman's "Baby Can I Hold You"--far exceeding the brief most boy bands have of merely smiling sweetly at the camera and making sure the dance steps are inch perfect. Musically, all the songs here veer towards the brand of harmony-laden, lightweight dance-pop Boyzone have virtually claimed for their own. --Everett True

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.

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!!!

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 like Boyzone, they are my favourite white boy band alongsides with Take That, Westlife, Backstreet Boys, East 17. They sang Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons revival 'Working My Way Back To You' was later revivaled by the Detroit Spinners which is not included in this album.

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.
