The last track from The Land Before Time is good as well as some of the other tracks. What is not featured itself is the hidden track. The song "Crazy Horses" shows his little bit of wild side. Overall, this is a great CD.

"Somewhere In Time is a very good Donny Osmond album of cover songs that showcases his talents very nicely. The quality of the sound is excellent and the artwork is very well done. This is one CD that should please Donny Osmond fans. True, it doesn't have as many songs on it as I would have liked--but then again it doesn't claim to be a "greatest hits" compilation either.
"Without You" is an excellent cover of this song that Donny sings with heart and soul. His tenor voice is great and the parts of this ballad that he sings in falsetto also work rather well. The music is very pretty and "Without You" is a strong beginning for this album. In addition, Donny does a smash-up job on "I Can't Go For That;" "I Can't Go For That" has a funky melody and Donny sings this to perfection with some awesome music special effects and a solid backup chorus to embellish this number. There's also Donny doing another great job on "Could It Be I'm Falling In Love'" "Could It Be I'm Falling In Love" features Donny Osmond squarely front and center and I'm very impressed! Donny's rendition is better than the original in my opinion!
"Don't Dream It's Over" shines brightly when Donny Osmond sings this with panache; the melody is mellow and very pretty. I really like "Don't Dream It's Over;" and I predict that you'll like Donny's rendition of this classic love song if you haven't heard it already. There's also "After The Love Is Gone;" this tune has excellent percussion to mark the beat and Donny delves into this ballad in order to bat it straight out of the ballpark! "After The Love Is Gone" is easily a major highlight of this CD.
"I'm Not In Love" has a chorus that is quite similar to the one in the original version; and when Donny sings this the number takes off like a jet! Donny never misses a beat and he never sings a superfluous note, either! Great! "Puppy Love" is a number Donny himself sang with his family so many years ago--the guitar treatment works very well and this is quite moving.
"So Happy Together" gets a regal treatment from Donny; he puts his own stamp on this number by using a slower tempo and adding a few subtle key changes to enhance it and make this his own. "Don't Give Up On Us Baby" is equally beautiful and quite a sensitive love ballad about a man who wants to try again with his one true love; and we get that great bonus track of Donny singing "No One Has To Be Alone."
Donny Osmond fans will like this CD an awful lot; and people who liked the original versions of these ballads will be very pleased with this CD.
I've matured and so has Donny! A great collection of energi

"I have to say, I "found" the Donny Live DVD on his webpage and bought it. After so many years of not hearing or seeing Donny, I was blown away by how his music has matured; even the "old" songs like "Puppy Love"! The American music world has been missing out on a terrific performer who has been continuously popular in the U.K. for years! I feel like I've been robbed all these years, but then again it's my fault. I knew what I liked back in the 70's and 80's and I should have known that with the caliber of performances then that he would still be great..if just given the chance."
