Review

There is no other subject we are driven to sing about as much as we do love, and whether the songs are about being in the sunshine or the shadows of the emotion, every era has had them and has been partially defined by them. This four-disc set covers the modern pop era, and includes such classic love songs as Luther Vandross' "So Amazing," Harry Nilsson's heartbreaking "Without You," Alicia Keys' "If I Ain't Got You," Bonnie Tyler's one-shot "Total Eclipse of the Heart," and Cyndi Lauper's gorgeous "Time After Time," among dozens of other forays into the heart of the matter. ~ Steve Leggett
