Editorial Reviews

Screw Barry Manilow--it was Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds who really wrote the songs the whole world sings. From the late '80s to the mid-'90s, no single artist owned the R&B and pop charts with a tighter or more fluid grip than Babyface (and his then partners L.A. Reid and Darryl Simmons), and this Greatest Hits collection is proof of this singer-songwriter/producer's way with romance and rhythm. The catch is that this CD contains only the smashes Face kept for himself: a definitive collection of the songs he handed to others would constitute a box set. This CD covers his solo efforts, from the tangy "Whip Appeal" to the aching "Every Time I Close My Eyes" and the understated "When Will I See You" (arguably the first R&B acoustic power ballad). With two new cuts and a live version of the Grammy-winning "Change the World," these 14 tracks sum up an era in R&B when wearing one's heart on one's sleeve and reaching for the most nuanced of melodies was an act of creative revolution. Sure, some called his act corny, but, as this CD proves, Babyface made minor classics that sound just as gentle and persuasive today as they did back then. --Amy Linden

5.0 out of 5 stars Babyface shows everyone who's boss December 2, 2000
By Jesse
Format:Audio CD
Babyface: A Collection of His Greatest Hits is one of the best greatest hits collections I have bought. He includes great hits such as For The Cool In You, It's No Crime, Whip Appeal, When Can I See You Again, This Is For The Lover In You, Change The World, and How Come How Long. Plus many others. The album flows really well, and it is an album I can leave in my CD player, not having to switch tracks. This album proves that Babyface is one of the greatest performers/songwriters EVER. The album has songs from many different periods of R&B, and Babyface's music defined those. The new tracks on here are great, and Reason For Breathing has to be one of my favorite songs now. I recommend you buy this CD as soon as possible, because Babyface deserves much more respect than he gets for all his hard work and talent!

5.0 out of 5 stars This man is a musical geinus!!!!! March 16, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This man is so talented there are no words to describe him. This man can sing, produce, arrange, write,and play instruments as well. This man has won grammys for songwriting, producing, and singing. This man is super-talented alongside with Michael Jackson and he produced and arranged the soundtracks for Waiting to Exhale and Boomerang which did rather well. Also, he had produced for Toni Baraxton, BoyzII Men, TLC, Whitney Houston and many others these people that he has produced for they all became smash hit power houses in the music industry. This man was with a group called the "Deele" w/ Antonio Reid was in with him and that group had major success with a lot of hit singles which are classics; The had hits such as: Two Occassions, Shoot Em Up Movies, Sweet November and he has sung duets that became smash hits such as: Love Makes Things Happen w/Pebbles, Give U My Heart w/ Toni Braxton and many others and has collaborated w/ Eric Clapton on the hit song "Change the World". This man is awesome he belongs in the hall of fame for songwriting and producing w/ Lionel Richie this man is amazing he has done it all he and his wife have produced hit shows and movies such as :"Soul Food" which he produced the movie soundtrack for "Soul Food" as well . Which all became hits this man is a musical geinus anyone who enjoyed Babyface during the 90's and 80's and if you enjoyed him with the "Deele" you would definitely enjoy this cd it is wonderful the whole cd is good every song on this cd is solid as a rock !!!!!
It contains: Whip Appeal, It's No Crime, The Cool In You, Ilove you babe my favorite Babyface song . If you like Babyface then buy his brother's album Kevon Edmonds 24/7 or any After 7 album you definitely would enjoy them another succesful group that this man had produced!!!!!
So I would definitely recommend anyone who likes Babyface to purchase this album you would definitely enjoy it!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Blessed by Babyface! November 15, 2000
Format:Audio CD
What more can I say. Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds is one of the greatest singer, songwriter, and producers of all-time. This man as the "platinum" touch! I've been a fan of his ever since I heard "Two Occassions" by the Deale as a 14 year old ninth grader. Still today that song ranks as my all-time favorite love song. Babyface is truly a genius. He taught me about chivalry and how a real man should be. His greatest hits collection is simply just that "great"!
Almost all the songs are #1 hits. All of his hits are included, and he even adds two new songs that will delight true Babyface fans. "Reason For Breathing" and "When Men Grow Old" are classic Babyface (full of sensitivity, understanding and love), but like any true fan knows, that it's elevated artwork from a genius who only gets better with time. I loved "I Love You Babe", this is a song that gets into your spine, and was the highlight on his first album "Lovers", which also had my song "Chivalry". There's also my personal favorite "Where Will You Go"! This song is from his "Tender Lover" album. "Whip Appeal", and the gentleman's anthem "Soon As I Get Home" are featured. I love this album and every song on it, because Babyface teaches and reaches! He is what a call a real man who believes in chivalry, loves women, and puts God first in his life. This man does wonders with a guitar and piano. He is truly a songwriter that has touched many people's hearts through his music and through the songs he has written for others.

4.0 out of 5 stars Where's "A Bit Old-Fashioned"? June 21, 2002
Format:Audio CD
This is still worth the cash, though. Even the newer songs ("Reason for Breathing", "When Men Grow Old") stand out. But still buy every Babyface album there is, including his best one, For the Cool in You, which contains the song I mentioned in this review's title.

5.0 out of 5 stars It doesn't get much better than this February 7, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Ever since he was with The Deele, I have been a Babyface fan. The live version of "Two Occasions" and "Sweet November" still get constant rotations in my CD player. Kenneth Edmonds has always had a way with words and music. He has wriiten and produced for many other artists and has many #1 and top ten hits to his credit. The first Babyface CD I purchased was "Tender Lover" and I have got everyone of his since. Babyface is very versatile. He can do a song like "It's No Crime" and then he can come back with slow jams to remember like "Whip Appeal". He can do a remix for the song, "This Is For The Love Of You" with Puff Daddy & Ghostface Killah and then he can come out with another slow jam classic like "Seven Seas", which is on "The Day" CD. At first, I was not going to purchase this CD, because I have all of his CDs in my collection, but when I heard "Reason For Breathing" I had no choice but to go make a purchase. This song alone is worth the ... "Reason For Breathing" is classic Babyface. So just in case you thought he lost it, this is just a song to show people that there is still more Babyface to come. Other Babyface classics such as "Where Will You Go", "Never Keeping Secrets", "When Will I See You Again" & "Everytime I Close My Eyes" are featured, as well as, my favorite Babyface song of all time, "Soon As I Get Home". Other than "Reason For Breathing", he also has a new song called "When Men Grow Old", which is also a good song as well. The only three songs I might have featured that aren't on this greatest hits CDs are "Love Makes Things Happen" w/Pebbles, "Seven Seas", and "I Said I Love You". To anyone that is a Babyface fan and has not bought any of his CDs, this is a great collection of songs to have.
