Ballad Collection

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Rob Theakston
One of the best things if not THE best thing that Boyz II Men does is craft immensely soulful, sincere, and painfully heartfelt ballads perfect for a wide variety of radio formats Top 40, adult contemporary, R&B, quiet storm, etc.. This ballad collection takes virtually every single Billboard chart hit the group had from its decade-long career and puts them on one single disc.

    Heaven...

    Thanks to the unavailablity of the other album I was suppossed to buy at the record shop, I bought this cd instead. Boyz II Men was just a familiar name to me then. And I never regreted buying this. If you are into a soul/rnb music, this one is for you. It is a compilation of their greatest hits, the ballads.Aside from the big time hits "On bended Knees" and "End of the road", the "Girl in the magazine" is one of the nicest catch in this package, too.It is so romantic and I can't help smiling everytime I listen to it.It's because of the song's contents."Can you stand the rain" made me cry even more during heartaches.It's relaxing and it's like you're on a dreamland. This album is heaven. I give this one 5 stars. If could give it a hundred, I will.Thanks to your music boyz...
