Biography

Atlantic Starr had the smooth funk thang down. One of funk-soul's stellar acts, Atlantic Starr claimed Top 20 R&B hits in the '70s, '80s and '90s, and is still heard today at the funkiest gatherings. A cool dozen of those Top 20 hits, from 1978's "Stand Up" to 1987's #1 R&B/#1 pop "Always," each digitally remastered, have now been brought ... Read more in Amazon's Atlantic Starr Store

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Always, Really June 19, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Sometimes, artists can be very surprising with the actual music they've endured in the 80's. Atlantic Starr was one of those acts. The glitter and the sonnets of the group really remained as a constant in the 80's. The songs they've made really have shown a lot of soul, which a lot of people don't seem to recognize time after time. That still hasn't changed the atmosphere of what the essence is like. Although they really aren't popular anymore, the music still is considered as one of the best guilty pleasure acts that came out of the 80's. As for Greatest Hits collections, that is another masterpiece trying to find in itself.
The 2001 20th Century Masters: The Millennium Collection of Atlantic Starr, is a budget CD as part of the lengthy Universal budget line of Greatest Hits Collections. Although they do intend to be cheap, the music is cheaper because a lot of great songs are missing. The songs here really range more from Atlantic Starr during their reign with A&M, and not actually focusing on their outlook with Warner Brothers and Reprise records. The songs here range with great standards including the soulful Send For Me, the dynamic Touch A Four Leaf Clover, and the most popular song from Atlantic Starr, the #1 hit Always. Although the collection of songs is quite adequate, a lot of songs could've been added here including the soulful Masterpiece, Love Crazy, My First Love, and a whole lot more to the mix.
Instead of getting this collection of Atlantic Starr's hits, try getting the Ultimate Collection of Atlantic Starr released a year earlier. It is really a much better hits collection than this one really is. But, if you can't find that one this will always have to do.

4.0 out of 5 stars Always September 27, 2003
By Lucas
Format:Audio CD
...Just bought this album because I like the band. I only had the A&M collection (Secret Lovers... The Best Of) in my own collection. This CD is (in my eyes & ears) a bit too short (52 minutes), considering how 'fruitfull' their music was/is. Silver Shadow is in it's 12" remix (I didn't have it yet) and Secret Lovers is in it's single mix. Both version were BETTER on the first collection). I miss quite a lot guitars & other keyboards in Silver Shadow, although this version is very clear to hear. The version of Secret Lovers here, is much shorter, as I already told. Those were the cons, now the pro's: - The digital remaster sounds much better than the others. - All songs are placed in chronological order (which was NOT the case on the CD 'Secret Lovers... The Best Of'), so, it's quite nice to hear this 'growing band' doing their 'thang' from one song into another. And last but not least: - 'Always' is included at the end (Atlantic Starr signed to Warner in 1987 and that was their first single) which was never the case earlier. So: It's a fine collection. I like Circles, Silver Shadow, Secret Lovers and Always the most ...

4.0 out of 5 stars good collection January 21, 2012
Format:Audio CD
now before Atlantic starr went on to playing musical chairs they were bringing the heat when Sharon bryant was there front singer. they started out in the same vein as ROse ROyce with a balance of funk and slow jams, before they went full "Miami Vice" Sheen Polish Music. they had cuts and when they found a formula they stuck to it.i dig there Hits and they kept a jam, but for me the Sharon Bryant era is the real deal. i wish they kept the Grooves and stayed to it. R&B acts gotta learn that Pop don't care about you unless you keep a hit, its just a land of make believe. don't switch up to fit there, stay to your thang and make Pop come to you not the other way around. Atlantic Starr had a good thing going until they went chasing the cross over. when they had the bass, keys and guitar grooving with there horns they were on point.

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVE ATLANTIC STARR December 12, 2012
By MissK
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
All of the biggest hits are on this CD, so I was happy. It brought back many memories. I do wish that they had remastered it a bit just to take away some of the gritty sound in background from vinyl. It appears that they got the songs directly from the vinyl so the sound wasn't crystal clear, but I still give it 5 stars because I love the group and songs, and enjoyed listening to all their hits back to back on one CD! There is nothing like a live band , playing real instruments, and great singers, songs. I would recommend this CD to any Atlantic Starr fan!

And This One Is Not! I came very close to buying this and at the last second I changed my mind and I'm glad I did. Read On and I will tell you why!

I agree with The Reviewer Michael Kerner on this one. Don't get me wrong. I own about 32 of these "20th Century Masters" CD's and for me: just about everyone of them are Perfect for my "Casual Fan" Status of The Artist or Band in Question but with Atlantic Starr Definately go with The "Atlantic Starr: Ultimate Collection" CD! The Reason Is Very Simple. Their "Ultimate Collection" does not cost much more Plus it has every Tune this CD has PLUS Six more Songs INCLUDING their Smash Hit "Masterpiece". "Masterpiece" not only was a #3 R&B Hit for Atlantic Starr but it was also a #3 Pop Hit for them in 1992! Most All Of You Music Fans Will Remember That Gorgeaus Ballad. If you don't remember it: you are probably too young to remember it. It's every bit as Beautiful as their 1987 #1 Hit "Always" and their 1985 Top 5 Hit "Secret Lovers". The Choice Is Yours But It's A No Brainer Folks! Yes I own "Atlantic Starr: Ultimate Collection" and not this one but I will continue to purchase "20th Century Masters" CD's under the "Casual Fan" Status because that's basicly what these are for anyway and sometimes these CD's don't even satisfy The Casual Fan! When buying these: Look Very Closely Before You Leap.

F.Y.I.: The 80s were Dominated with some Great Bands Who sang some Beautiful & Soulful Ballads and Atlantic Starr Excelled At It so much that The Domination even carried over into The 90s! Another one of my Favorites by Atlantic Starr is 'If Your Heart Isn't In It".
