Love Songs

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Romance isn't the first word associated with Tina Turner but there's little doubt that the soul singer knows her way around a love song, so compiling an 18-song collection of the best of those romantic tunes makes sense. The 2014 compilation Love Songs, however, bends the rules of what qualifies as a love song, finding space for her arena rock anthem "The Best," "What's Love Got to Do with It?," the adult contemporary standard "I Don't Want to Fight," and Ike & Tina's "River Deep, Mountain High," which may be about love but is bombastic in the way none of the other 17 songs here are.
