Biography

“I'm fully aware that when some people hear my name in a musical context, it's not often equated to anything earth-shattering. Yet, in many ways, this new record finds itself in a similar vein to the previous one, "Wild Hope." While “Amanda Leigh” was recorded in a much more concise period of time, both albums just feel like a real body of work, more ... Read more in Amazon's Mandy Moore Store

3.0 out of 5 stars Definitely premature collection of an underrated artist. November 17, 2004
By D. Mok
Format:Audio CD
Mandy Moore may not have had as much success as Spears or Aguilera, but she had a lot to offer. The self-titled 2001 album was a rock-solid dance/pop collection, and she was able to prove the critics wrong when they thought "Candy" was the only trick up her sleeve.

If she'd had another three or four years to make more music, a greatest-hits set might be justified. Unfortunately, this best-of does reek of a quick cash-in by the record company, because Moore has had only two full albums of original material thus far, added to one covers record and a half-album (I Wanna Be with You) which reprised a number of tracks from her debut. Three tracks from soundtracks bolster the track list a little, but still, it hardly makes a musical history worthy of a greatest-hits set. The music, judged on its own, holds up somewhat. The early material is thin, but enjoyable in its own way -- it *is* teen pop, after all. But Moore's always had a strong voice and personality, and the three tracks from the Mandy Moore album certainly see her taking command.

Looking at the DVD, which collects her music videos, it's no wonder Mandy Moore decided to shorn her locks and go for a dark brunette look. She once said in an interview that being blonde made her look more anonymous. But I think these videos are even more to blame. To put it simply, it's the usual modern-music-video hogwash -- put your artist in lots of costumes with lots of gyrating, unchoreographed hardbodies around you, and just keep wiggling your behind at the camera. A great single like "In My Pocket" deserved better; if the director had bothered studying the lyrics, he might not have turned this video into another body-ogling soft-porn orgy.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Amazing Collection November 20, 2004
Format:Audio CD
The Mandy Moore: The Best Of album/DVD, packaged beautifully, put together perfectly, is well worth the buy. There is nothing new on the CD, but it still comes across as a full, satisfying album. Here are my reviews on each song individually:

1. Candy - Still sticky and sweet as it was in the late 90's, it reminds you of the more cute, and less sexual, side of the teen pop genre at the time. The bridge, penned by Mandy, is almost a guilty pleasure. 5/5

2. Walk Me Home - A sweet, melodic, intrancing song. The sincerity in Mandy's voice captivates you and brings you back to the first time you heard this song. Though not as catchy as "Candy", "Walk Me Home" is still a good offering. 4/5

3. So Real - A single not released in America, "So Real" is well-produced, but not single worthy. Mandy sounds really young here, but her voice sounds beautiful, and very "commercial". The song is kind of synth-pop. 3/5

4. I Wanna Be With You - Probably one of the most beautiful, melodic songs Mandy has ever been a part of. Immediately after the song finishes, you want to take a second listen. Mandy's voice sounds very mature and miraculous on this song. The music is breath-taking and plays extremely well with her voice. One of my favorites. 6/5

5. In My Pocket - Critically acclaimed, "In My Pocket" deserves the hype it's received. It has a very middle-eastern feel to it and was like a blue bird in a flock of crows in 2001. The song has very inticing lyrics and grabs you in, refusing to let go. You'll be dancing in no time. 5/5

6. Crush - Probably a bigger hit than "In My Pocket", but only semi-rightfully so. The song is beautiful and melodic in it's own right, but seems ill-offered compared to the previous single.

2.0 out of 5 stars Far from the best November 19, 2004
Format:Audio CD
In 2003, actress/pop starlet Mandy Moore stunned the musical world by releasing a solid, mature covers album -- wow, it was, like, so different from the forgettable bubblegum she had released in order to get her foot in the door. That makes "Best Of" a deceptive title for this tepid gooey collection.

The first several tracks are the aforementioned bubblegum, generally cloying pop tunes that express teen longing and adoration, such as "Candy" and "Walk Me Home." The fluffiness of these songs is not helped by Moore's vocals -- while she has a good voice, she sounds very young in the early songs. A few soundtrack songs are tacked in, such as the competant "Only Hope" (from her screen debut "A Walk To Remember") and pleasant "Secret Love" (from"Mona Lisa Smile").

But things perk up when Moore's "Coverage" songs come on -- she sounds smoother, more assured, and far more mature. The songs are covers of songs by Todd Rundgren ("Can We Still Be Friends?"), XTC ("Senses Working Overtime"), Carly Simon ("I Feel The Earth Move") and Joe Cocker ("Have a Little Faith In Me." She retains the "feel" of the original, while shifting her vocals from mellow to rock-ish, depending on what the song needs.

Moore is a good singer, there's no question about that -- she has some very good musical taste and vocal talent, and she does justice to the songs she covers. But unfortunately this collection appears to be a last minute cash in, since she left Sony in the past year. At least "Best Of" shows just how much Moore has grown as a singer.

The early pop is virtually unlistenable -- as sugary and lightweight as a giant wad of cotton candy, with songwriting that could have been churned out of the Big Generic Love Song Machine.

4.0 out of 5 stars too much fluff
It's Mandy Moore, the girl can sing but the song choices are a little too much fluff and not enough substance. Nice to listen to a couple of times.
