5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific CD!, January 29, 2000
This review is from: Hits (Audio CD)
As a Phil Collins fan for many years, I was really glad to see a compilation of hits that included many of the songs I have loved for a long time. To just mention a few tunes, one of my favorites of all time, "Against All Odds", is on this CD, and if you have never heard the song, the CD is worth buying for this song alone. No wonder it was nominated for an Academy Award as part of the soundtrack for the movie bearing its title. "Against All Odds" is a song that certainly makes you feel something, and his voice stirs deep emotion, at least in me. Another of my favorites, "Easy Lover", is a fast-paced hit that makes the best of a combination of Phil Collins and Phil Bailey on vocals. Definitely a likable hit. The passionate "Separate Lives" is also a duet, a beautiful one, and one of the reasons I truly love this CD. If you turn up the volume when Phil comes on the radio, you can bet that you will covet this CD full of hits. "In the Air Tonight" is one reason to turn up the volume, with its smashing drum beats and the sultry, almost angry, lilt in Phil's vocals. Upbeat hits like "Two Hearts","Can't Hurry Love" and "Dance into the Light" really throw an added spark into the mix. Phil's remake of Cindy Lauper's "True Colors" is well done and of course what Phil Collins hits CD would be complete without the catchy "Sussudio". Songs like "Groovy Kind of Love", "I Wish it Would Rain Down", "Take Me Home", "One More Night" and "Something Happened on the Way to Heaven" round out this album. Many of the songs included on the CD were favorites of mine that I hadn't heard in a long time and hearing them again was truly great. A must-have CD for any Collins or Genesis fan. It earns every one of the five stars I gave it.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a great CD, December 30, 1999
I just recently got this CD and I haven't stopped listening toit. I think that when you choose to capture the best music in thelong history of Genesis on one CD, it's a no-brainer to pick the songs on this CD. Of course the whole of Genesis' long list of hits from their beginning could fit on a 3-CD set, but the fact is that most people won't pay that, for little heard of Genesis hits from the early 70s. Also, many people are not aware of the fact that Peter Gabriel was ever in Genesis. So the reason that there are only two songs from the Peter Gabriel era and only one from the Ray Wilson era is clear to see. They want to hear Phil Collins. People want the Genesis songs they loved to hear on the radio and this CD gets them all. I agree that "No Reply at All" would have been a great addition to this CD, but when you want to get a good selection of hits you have to discriminate. I think this CD is terrificly put together and the only one out there that includes so many recognizable and great hits.
