"I am pretty new to Christian music. I had never heard of Amy Grant until "Heart in Motion". I've never listened to Christian music. 6 months ago, I decided to buy one of her earlier albums. After listening to it ("Age to Age"), I decided to buy another...and another...and another.... You get the picture. I couldn't get enough of this wonderful artist! Then I bought the collection because I still hadn't purchased her entire discography yet but was anxious to hear other songs that I hadn't heard yet. This collection is wonderful! It's a nice mixture of upbeat/rock songs and slow touching ballads. Amy's whole style is so accessible to all listeners. I was pleasingly surprised at the end with the "Ageless Medley" where she re-records her hits and incorprates them all in one spectacular song! Amazing album!"
A review of a wonderful CD

"I just want to say that this is a marvelous CD. My family had some old Amy Grant tapes (Age to Age and Unguarded), and that I will best review this by giving an overview of each song in turn.Stay For Awhile: I fell in love with this song. It's got a bit of heavy rock beat, but it's very enjoyable.Love Can Do: While I did not enjoy this particular song, mainly because of the lyrics, if you enjoy heavy rock, you'll enjoy this.Find A Way: Very, very, nice. This song being from the album Unguarded, it was one of the first I was introduced to.Everywhere I Go: This song is also from Unguarded. If I could play piano, I would love to be able to play this.....But, I'll settle for singing it. A very catchy tune.Angels: It starts out tell a story from the book of Acts, about Peter, when he was imprisoned and the angel came to free him. It then leads to everyday life. The message preached in this is subtle, but makes a point.Thy Word: Based on the verse from Psalm 119, "Thy Word is a Lamp to my feet, and a Light to my path," this is a wonderful, and enjoyable, song.Emmanuel: A Christmas song. Fun to listen to, even if it isn't December.Where Do You Hide Your Heart: A rock beat. Still, it is a nice song, and falls under a slightly romantic category.Sing Your Praise To The Lord: While I'm not entirely fond of rock'n'roll type songs, this will catch any Amy Grant lover's eye! Or ear, for that matter.In A Little While: What can I say? A rock'n'roll song, but a rock'n'roll song. One of Amy Grant's, in my opinion, best songs.El Shaddai: To those of you who don't know Hebrew, "El Shaddai" means "God Almighty". The song was origially written by Michael Card, but Amy Grant gives it a certain something that he can't. And not all the lyrics are in Hebrew. I Have Decided: Wonderful. Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. It's definately something you'll want to listen to if you're a recent convert to Christianity. And even if you aren't, listen to it anyway.Too Late: Not my favorite, but enjoyable just the same. If, like me, you enjoy acting, this is a fun song to dance to, sing, and act out the lyrics.I'm Gonna Fly: I love this song! One of my absolute favorites. It starts out slow, then goes fast, then gets slow again.All I Ever Have To Be: Can I just say humble? To actually ever be like what the song describes, you'd have to be...well, Jesus. Aside from that, it's a good example, and a great song.Father's Eyes: I'm a great fan of this song, too. It's very enjoyable, easy to sing along to....I love it!Ageless Medly: A combination of seven of the songs on this CD, and one other, this song alone gives you many enjoyable moments. Very, very, nice.My only complaint with this CD is that it didn't come with a lyrics booklet. I suggest buying this, it will be worth it!"

"The title to this album really says it all. It is a beautifully arranged 'collection' of some of Amy Grant greatest songs. With such songs as'El Shaddi', 'Sing Your Praise to the Lord', 'I Have Decided', and 'Father's Eyes', this album combines her moving and touching songs with some of the most uplifting praise songs ever to be heard. She also added two previously unreleased songs ('Stay for a While', and 'Love Can Do'), along with a very nice medaly ('Ageless').
Even after almost 16 years, I recommend this album to anyone new to Christain music, or anyone who just wants to hear some of the best Christain pop and rock that is out there."
