Greatest Hits: 1985-1993

All Music Guide - Andrew Hamilton
Early chart smashes "Never Knew Love Like This" and "Sweet Sensation" didn't make it onto this one, so you can't call Greatest Hits: 1985 to 1993 -- which represents Stephanie Mills' last run of hits MCA Records -- definitive. Mills interprets Angela Winbush's songs as if they were sent to her directly from God: "Something in the Way You Make Me Feel" and "I Have Learned to Respect the Power of Love" -- originally by Alton McClain & Destiny -- are thrilling examples. Ever romantic, Mills remains the swept-away lover, as the exhilarating "You're Puttin' a Rush on Me" and "I Feel Good All Over" attest too. Her remake of Gladys Knight & the Pips' "If I Was Your ...

Her remake of Gladys Knight & the Pips' "If I Was Your Woman" stirs the same can of emotions as the original. "Home," a song with a heavy message, closes her live shows: the uplifting ballad prompts encore after encore. The only other knock aside from the two missing hits: the contrived disco tracks like "Stand Back." Mills should have passed on the dumb stuff.

    Average At Best

    This CD was ok considering each song was the full version. However, A few of the songs that were added aren't the Greatest by a long shot. Like the song Bit By Bit (Theme From "Fletch") and Stand Back were both duds. Instead of this CD being titled Greatest Hits, It should have been titled The Best Of. Then she could have put "The Best" songs from each album on the CD. The Angela Winbush produced song So Good So Right should have been added, Also Teddy Rileys Real Love would have been great. Stephanie Mills leaves a lot to be desired as far as great songs are concerned. Beautiful voice, But her material, Average At Best.
