Overview

98° may have been typecast alongside the Backstreet Boys and *NSYNC thanks to their dashing good looks, but their music set them apart from such highly polished pop. Constructing a style that's rooted in sultry R&B and soul grooves, 98° established themselves as a strong vocal group and The Collection charts the band's musical maturation since their 1997 self-titled debut. From the heart-rending "Was It Something I Didn't Say?" and "I Do (Cherish You)" to the sexy Latin party of "Give Me Just One Night (Una Noche)," The Collection captures the highlights. A hidden treasure featured in Disney's Mulan, "True to Your Heart" is one of 98°'s finest moments. The collaboration with Stevie Wonder is a sophisticated match for the group and an equal favorite among fans. "Thank God I Found You" with Mariah Carey is also an added bonus. Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson's dramatic duet on "Where You Are" is missing and that might disappoint some fans, but most will be able to overlook such a move. The Collection is a solid package and loyalists who've followed them from the beginning will be pleased.

I don't care what anyone has to say, 98* is the best pop group out. Period point-blank, end of story!

It sounds like a good CD, however they have songs on it from their other CDs. Maybe they need to work more on new ideas for songs.
