The Love Album: Classics

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Heather Phares
The British double-disc collection The Love Album: Classics devotes a disc apiece to contemporary and time-tested love songs. Each disc is surprisingly eclectic -- the first one kicks off with Robbie Williams and Nicole Kidman's charming mega-hit "Somethin' Stupid" and Kate Winslet's treacly "What If." It also includes predictable choices like Toni Braxton's "Un-Break My Heart" and the Corrs' "Breathless," but tracks like Coldplay's "Trouble," Sinead O'Connor's "Nothing Compares 2 U," and George Michael and Elton John's "Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me" offer a refreshing change of pace.

The British double-disc collection The Love Album: Classics devotes a disc apiece to contemporary and time-tested love songs. Each disc is surprisingly eclectic -- the first one kicks off with Robbie Williams and Nicole Kidman's charming mega-hit "Somethin' Stupid" and Kate Winslet's treacly "What If." It also includes predictable choices like Toni Braxton's "Un-Break My Heart" and the Corrs' "Breathless," but tracks like Coldplay's "Trouble," Sinead O'Connor's "Nothing Compares 2 U," and George Michael and Elton John's "Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me" offer a refreshing change of pace. However, disc two is almost worth the price of admission alone for its mix of '50s, '60s, and '70s love songs. Ranging from weepy classics like Nilsson's "Without You," Percy Sledge's "When a Man Loves a Woman," and Samantha Sang's "Emotions" to smoldering declarations of passion like Marvin Gaye's "Sexual Healing" and Al Green's "How Can You Mend a Broken Heart?," the second disc includes enough classics to nearly make up for disc one's uneven quality. Overall, The Love Album: Classics is entertaining and romantic enough for the casual pop fan, even if it is a somewhat unbalanced collection.
