Christian music. Amy is married to Vince Gill. Her music is a combination of modern Christian and pop and folk. She has a great range.
Not as Strong as "The Collection" but Good

"Amy Grant has been releasing music since the mid-70's. Back when such things as records were still popular. In 1986, she released a greatest hits project that is a classic all by itself. "The Collection" is a staple in many Christian music collections. 1986 marked a change in Amy's career, and her second greatest hits collection showcases that second phase.
I'm never envious of the people responsible for putting a greatest hits collection together. There are always so many good songs and not enough room. Of course, there are the no-brainers. "The Next Time I Fall," a duet from a Peter Cetera album, and "Baby Baby" from Heart in Motion are clear examples.
But then there are songs that seem to be obviously missing. "Children of the World" from House of Love is noticeable absent, maybe because it's my favorite song from that project. And Heart in Motion seems to be a little over represented. While it was her biggest CD, one or two songs could have been cut to make room for a few others. Especially the "Baby Baby" remix at the end, which brings the total appearances of that song to two. I know it is her biggest song ever, but how many versions of that song do we need on one disc? And, while "Simple Things" represents her last project, her hymns CD is completely missing here.
As always, there are new songs. "Come Be With Me" is another love song that frankly hasn't caught my interest that much. "Lucky One," later in this disc, is much better. "The Water" is her best song in years, however. I love this look at repentance.
On the whole, this is a great retrospective that marginal fans of Amy's work will love and long term fans will gladly add to their collection. The only real drawback is that it could have been better balanced over all her releases from the period."
A great CD set!

"The first CD in this 2004 CD set contains some nineteen of Amy Grant's (b.1960) greatest hits, ranging from the sacred to the sublime. All of the great songs are here - Baby Baby, Every Heartbeat, Good For Me, and Lead Me On. But, that's not all! The second CD has *four* great remixes - Every Heartbeat, That's What Love Is For, I Will Remember You, and House Of Love.
Yep, this is a great CD set, which shows off Amy Grant's beautiful singing voice to its best. I like to listen to CDs on my computer when I work, which means that the speakers are right on top of me and I can spot quality (or a lack thereof) right off the bat. I found this to be a great album to listen to, and I highly recommend it to everyone! Buy it!
