    What an Awesome CD

    This is just an incredible CD. From all his past hits to the new song "Goodbye." I am in complete awe when I listen to that song. I am a Retired Detroit Police Officer. I was standing shoulder to shoulder with an officer when he was fatally shot in the head. Since, I have attended many officers funeral and Memorial Services including National Police Week in May at Washington, D.C. Every surviving family should hear "Goodbye" What an incredible song. Thank you!

    I wish I had this one, too...

    Being a Lionel Richie fan since I was a kid, when I saw the songs on this CD, I thought it would be the perfect musical addition to have in the car and take me back a few decades when all the recordings were on tape or 33 RPM's albums. After receiving it and listening to it, it really met my expectations. Over a recent holiday roadtrip, Lionel's CD came up in the rotation. My wife commented "Oh, I really like this, I wish I had this one for my car, too---how long have you had it?" So guess what one of her next gifts was?

    He already sang all these songs before!!!

    While I do enjoy a good Lionel Richie song here and there, I can honsetly say that this album struck me as odd. I bought it on my way home from my movie night with friends, and when I started listening to it, there was an all-too-familiar feeling about the songs. Then it occurred to me- YOU ALREADY SANG THESE SONGS ON OTHER ALBUMS!!! What did you forget you already used these ones, or what?! I mean, come on Lionel, I expected more out of you. "Hello", "Do it to me one more time", "Dancing on the ceiling", "Running with the night"- these were all hits for you, man!! You think you're fooling anyone?! They even used your song, "Endless Love" in the movie, "Happy Gilmore". What the hell, G? I take this is a blatant disrespect for your fans. It's taking the easy way out, just so you can try and fool us into giving you more money. I'm sorry, mister, but I don't want others to make the same mistake I did. So if you have never heard these songs before, it is a great album, but if you have heard them, don't buy it. It simply repeats itself.

    Great Overview Of Lionel's Biggest Hits

    This album stays true to its title, as it is the definitve collection of Lionel Richie's greatest hits, from "Hello" to "Dancing On The Ceiling" to my 2 personal favorites, "Do It To Me" and the timeless Diana Ross duet "Endless Love". Also included are five Commodores classics, including "Easy" and "Three Times A Lady". An added bonus: two new tracks that show Lionel hasn't lost his magic touch: the country - tinged Enrique Inglesias duet "To Love A Woman" and the hauntingly beautiful "Goodbye". A must for music fans.
