While many Jim Brickman fans claim a stronger allegiance to the pianist/songwriter's non-vocal works, even they have to concede that the Cleveland native has an uncanny touch for crafting catchy, affecting love songs. Many of Brickman's best-known heart-tuggers are on display here, a relatively brief disc (43 minutes) that samples nine of the 10 recordings released during the first decade (1994-2003) of Brickman's career. The breakdown: Five instrumental tracks (one of them "Partners in Crime," his oversaxed, smooth jazz-targeted duet with Dave Koz), six older vocal selections, and two new vocal tracks--the winner being "'Til I See You Again," an engaging, upbeat piece authored by producer David Grow and sung with from-the-mountaintop vigor by Christian vocalist Mark Schultz. Outside of the straining, Mariah Carey-like excesses of "Destiny," the selections here are easy to digest, yet they exhibit a level of sophistication that smartly counteracts their modest saccharine/sentimentality content. This is no small feat--a testament to Brickman's intuitive link to deeper, hard-to-articulate human yearnings and his connection to clear-eyed romantics searching for an antidote to a world gone wild with cynicism. --Terry Wood

Lots of Brickman alone and with guest singers.
ISN'T IT ROMANTIC?

"Always a master at snugglin' and cuddlin's music, Jim Brickman's Greatest Hits brings us the best of his ten year career. The CD is released to coincide with a major U.S. tour. For me, favorites from the past for me among the 11 classics are "Love of My Life" with Michael W. Smith, and "By Heart" with Laura Creamer. Both are sigh producing melodies. Two new tracks recorded for this collection include "My Loves Is Here," hauntingly sung by Canadian Roch Voisone, and Brickman's instrumental "Angel Eyes." Uncork the wine, turn the lights low, and enjoy."

"I ordered this CD for a specific song that I wanted to play at my wedding. When I got the CD I found several beautiful songs that I didn't know were on it. I was pleasantly surprised and it was shipped to me in time for my wedding. Thank you Amazon and Jim Brickman!"
