these girls are just unstoppable with there first UK no. 1 and three mutil - platnun selling albums behind them, they bold forward with there carears with there bestballad so far. "Angel of mine" beats anything and is considerably one of the best ballads of all time. Only reaching 6 in the UK chart - this was obviously well a head of it's time. The Greatest hit's album also feature' 2 other new songs including "Might as well be me" and "Finally". This album rounds off the Eternal carear with Kelle Bryan as she is asked to leave the group for not co-operating in the future plans of the group. This period spells out the darkest era in Eternal's history. Slanderous comments on "the evil sisters" action made it possible for there fifth album "Eternal" to completely fail in the UK with the only single release from it being "What'cha gonna do" only reaching no. 16 in the charts. this was certainly not diserved as the tune is equal match to TLC's "no scrubs" in it's message. This album is a brilliant album - recommend purchasing Eternals future albums including "Eternal".

Having recently appeared on the Big Reunion TV show and concert there is a little bit of renewed interest in Eternal. This Greatest Hits album (originally released in 1997) contains all their hits up to that point as well as a few additional tracks tacked on the end.
The album is in chronological order (other than the 1st track - Angel Of Mine - which was the new single at the time) and if you paid attention to pop music or the Top 40 in the mid 90s, most of the songs will be familiar to you.

Eternal were one of the few R&B groups from the UK in the chart at this time and also one of the few all female groups to have significant success pre Spice Girls - all the singles made the top 15 (including one No.1) of the chart in a 4 year period from 93 to 97. Most of the tracks are upbeat R&B tracks with a few ballads thrown in for good measure. Most of them still sound fairly fresh today which is a positive surprise.

My favourite tracks are the ones I was most familiar with from the time - the first 3 hits (Stay, Save Our Love, Just A Step From Heaven) and the ballads (Oh Baby I, I Am Blessed and Someday - which featured in the Disney movie 'The Hunchback of Notre Dame') although most of the them are a decent enough listen - Crazy and Secrets are the weakest singles in my opinion. The additional tracks (Who Are You, Finally and Might As Well Be Me) don't really add a great deal.

This is a pretty complete collection of their hits (only missing 99's What'cha Gonna Do - released when Eternal had been reduced to a duo) and is a worthwhile purchase for anyone who enjoyed their performances on The Big Reunion or 90s chart music in general.

A nice collection, however, I had expected to know more songs on this one; I guess Eternal didn't have that many smash hits as I remembered. Still good though, esp. I Wanne Be the Only One, always makes me smile when I hear that track

Loved this album. It's great to hear the best songs again from Eternal. It is also great to see them back in the Big Reunion this year on tv. Shame they are not on the nationwide tour.

Apart from the change of title, this is EXACTLY the same (even the artwork etc.) as "Eternal The Best" released in 1997.
