All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Ceasing his romantic decade -- overviews of the '80s -- because, really, what '90s love songs are there for him to croon outside of "My Heart Will Go On" -- Barry Manilow doubles back for 2010's The Greatest Love Songs of All Time, picking great romantic tunes from the 20th century, ranging from "The Twelfth of Never," "You Made Me Love You," and "How Deep Is the Ocean?" to "We've Only Just Begun," "Love Me Tender," "The Look of Love," and "I Only Have Eyes for You." As the title suggests, this collection of 13 songs is very much cut from the same cloth as its four predecessors, favoring the familiar to the obscure, relying on the same clean, efficient ...

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Ceasing his romantic decade -- overviews of the '80s -- because, really, what '90s love songs are there for him to croon outside of "My Heart Will Go On" -- Barry Manilow doubles back for 2010's The Greatest Love Songs of All Time, picking great romantic tunes from the 20th century, ranging from "The Twelfth of Never," "You Made Me Love You," and "How Deep Is the Ocean?" to "We've Only Just Begun," "Love Me Tender," "The Look of Love," and "I Only Have Eyes for You." As the title suggests, this collection of 13 songs is very much cut from the same cloth as its four predecessors, favoring the familiar to the obscure, relying on the same clean, efficient production that lets the songs and his personality shine in equal measure. Although this is certainly a modern production -- albeit one with keyboard sounds straight out of 1987 -- this isn't a record that feels contemporary, and Manilow doesn't reinterpret the songs so much as sing them his way…which is all that he needs to do, of course, as that's all that his fans want. In other words, The Greatest Love Songs of All Time doesn't disappoint: it delivers what it promises, no more and no less.

    A Must Have for Manilow Fans!

    Barry Manilow does not disappoint with this latest CD. In true Manilow form, his voice is oh so smooth and easy to listen to again and again. Makes me want to slow dance with my husband :)

    I really enjoyed it and he has always been one of my favorate singers.
    thank you, Debbie

    The Best Yet

    Whether I need something to sooth and relax or something to keep me moving this does it. I usually play it in my classroom after the children leave as I do all the prep for the next day, but the other day the students wanted to eat lunch in the room where it was quiet and I played it. My Second Graders had just learned the word romantic (for February) and they said it was very romantic!

    The Greatest Love Songs of All Time

    After several (that's several) attempts to rectify, confirm and receive my original order, what I finally received was the CD of Colt Ford - Ride through the Country.
    I'm amazed, angered and frustrated at the inefficiency and incompetence of your customer service, and the shipping and billing for an original order which promised to be easy and quite simple via the internet; it has turned out to be just the opposite, a stupid nightmare! I probably will never order again from the internet. In any event, I have forwarded the CD to the person slated to receive it in the first place. I'm presuming that my original order was received there and the confusion and anger just keeps rolling along !!
