Opening with the soaring "I'm Outta Love", the tracks the precede in the order they were released. Most the material off the "Not that Kind" and "Freak Of Nature" is typical girl with big voice material. The outstanding expections are the unreal "One Day In Your Life", "Cowboy's And Kisses", and "You'll Never Stand Alone" (presented here in it's richer, more complex US release reworked mix).
Beginning with "Left Outside Alone" and straight through the closing notes of the album we are given some truly great, amazing, and inspired music. "Anastacia" (the album) finally has Ms. Stacia rockin her true voice. It's a true shame that album has failed to surface domestically. Given the climate of girl rock and heavy lyrics the album could finally give Anastacia some major hits on US charts. And what about these new songs? "In Your Eyes" is a competent rock ballad, but hold on to your seats for the collection's true gem, "Pieces Of A Dream". A deep, rich, and challenging ballad that fits Anastacia's voice and latest sounds perfectly. Almost sounding like a throw away from "Anastacia", this song is no one's sloppy seconds. The one off track? The duet with Eros. He definatley has a market, but this track should have been left off.
Sadly some really amazing tracks were not released as singles; "Overdue Goodbye", "How Come The World Won't Stop", "Time", "Rearview, and the beautiful b-sided "Underground Army" far surpass some of the tunes selected for radio and release.Read more ›
also includes "everything burns" with ben moody from evanesence and her gorgeous duet with italian superstar eros romazotti, "i belong to you"
But what really counts is the tracks and amazing remixes on the remix CD. By the way, the description on here is wrong for the special edition. There is no DVD included in the packaging: just Disc 1 (with all her hits and 4 new songs and a megamix) and the remix disc. There will be a DVD being released of her Live at Last tour in March, so look for that.
All of her singles are here (except for Boom and Love is a Crime, though they are on the remix disc) as well as 4 new songs. The title track and new single, Pieces of a Dream, which is amazing and a pure Anastacia rock ballad. There's also I Belong to You, with Italian singer Eros, another ballad and In Your Eyes (ballad) as well as her contribution to the Fantastic 4 soundtrack with Ben Moody, Everything Burns. The club megamix is a almost-12 minute dance tour de force, including her biggest hits, totally remixed. It is amazing.
The remix disc is really good too, including some rare remixes of her biggest hits as well as to Love is a Crime and Boom. It's an amazing addition to have to this greatest hits set.
It really sucks that she isn't more known in the US. Most of my friends don't know who she is. I hope that whenever she releases her fourth studio album, she works harder to try and break the US. I really hope she can get successful here in the US.
So buy this awesome greatest hits package! You won't regret it.
