4 1/2 stars--missed some key hits but not soundtrack songs,
This review is from: Hits (Audio CD)
Phil Collins was everywhere in the 1980s and early '90s. From his Genesis work to his solo stuff, he was heard on the air with new music each and every year from 1980 through 1993. An unbelievable run by a very talented musician with one of the best voices in popular music history. The songs on this solo collection speak for themselves: from the mystical "In The Air Tonight" and "One More Night" to the catchy "Susudio" and "Easy Lover" to the downright beautiful "Against All Odds" and "Separate Lives". Even the remake of "True Colors" by Cyndi Lauper (which I was not too fond of in its original form) is nice. At least one track is included from each and every Phil solo album, and all of those movie soundtrack songs that were big hits are included. Once I bought this collection I was able to clean out a few record singles!
Now the downside, as is often the case with artists who have as much great material and hits as Phil has that decide to put out greatest hits albums: there are several key songs missing. A chronological list of other songs I would liked to have seen is as follows: "Missed Again", "I Don't Care Anymore", "Don't Forget My Number", "Inside Out", "We Said Hello Goodbye", "Do You Remember", "Hang In Long Enough", and "Everyday". Throw that in with some other album tracks and maybe a few rarities if they exist, and you could have easily made this a two-disk set.
No matter. This collection is still very enjoyable if you're a fan of the man, his music, and his amazing voice. Definitely a worthwhile listen that is guaranteed to bring back memories.
