All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Of all the major teen pop stars who ran wild at the turn of the millennium, Mandy Moore was perhaps the least successful, if she's judged merely on terms of chart success. Britney and Christina certainly racked up more hits and headlines than Mandy, and she never had a single as undeniably catchy and irresistible as Jessica Simpson's "I Think I'm in Love" which Jessica herself never managed to top after she became a household name, either. So it would seem that The Best of Mandy Moore -- released in November 2004, at the end of her contract with Epic -- would be little bit more than footnote to the teen pop phenomenon of the early 2000s, and that may be true if success is only calculated on those aforementioned charts or cultural impact. So why is The Best Of so much more satisfying a listening experience than Britney Spears' Greatest Hits: My Prerogative, released just a few weeks before this collection? Well, part of it is due to the fact that Mandy is simply a better singer than Britney. Maybe she doesn't have quite as much charisma as Spears, but she can carry a tune and her voice doesn't grate over the course of a 14-track album like the way Britney's can. Then, there's the fact that these songs, since they weren't as widely heard as "Oops...I Did It Again" or "Genie in a Bottle," just sound fresher. And while there are no knock-out singles here -- although her biggest hit, "Crush," comes close -- there's a greater musical variety, and the chronological running order emphasizes that Mandy Moore is growing as a singer and recording artist, getting better with each subsequent album instead of stagnating like many of her peers. As a result, this turns out to be one of the better artifacts of the teen pop boom -- as an album, it's stronger and more enjoyable than almost any other teen pop record from its time, and by the time it's over, you're curious about where Moore will go next. [The Best Of also includes a bonus DVD, containing all of her music videos, plus selections from her Sessions@AOL live performance.]

    Great CD by Mandy Moore

    Anyone that enjoyed the music sung by Mandy Moore in "A Walk to Remember" will love this CD. I think she has a beautiful voice and enjoy all the songs. There are two songs from the movie...I never really heard Mandy Moore until seeing the movie of "A walk to remember", and movie "Princess Diaries"...You will enjoy the DVD of the songs from the CD...It is worth the money...watch for her new CD coming out this month.

    AWESOME!

    OK, so the bubble gum pop kind of music had faded away because of mainly rock and rap music, but Mandy Moore's songs show that there's still a touch innocence out there. So if you like those sweet, soft songs, then this is for you!

    What?

    Her older songs are cool , like walk me home and stuff and candy, and if you like her this is your cd, but when did the "can we still be friends?" become a big hit? I'm sorry I thought Mandy Moore dropped out of the scene after "Walk To Remember" (which was a really good movie by the way) This CD is not for you if you didn't follow her after walk to remember (and sorry N Jessica Simpson is a moran)
