CD Reviews

Nice, Smooth and Refined
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Heather provides her consistent brand of soothing husky vocals over her 3 boys' piano tinkling and saxophones. This is basically a collection of songs from past albums -- most of which seem to come from their last U.K. album, "Fresco" (which was unreleased in the U.S. and rumored to have been too heavy on R&B for their pop fans). As singles, these songs all play nicely, and I would have thought this was a slow and lite retrospective (like Madonna's "Something to Remember" album), if it weren't for the extra remixes thrown in to keep this CD from coming across as too dreary. The best remix is another release of "Moving On Up - (Mark's Millennium Vocal mix)," very fun indeed! Overall, I can't help thinking that I would rather have preferred to buy their "Best Of M-People" CD on import instead. It's got many of these same songs, plus their other big hits -- yes, sells that one, too, and only for a couple of dollars more."

"I agree with some of the feedback written by other MPEOPLE fans about this CD. What I am curious about is why the greatest hits CD is not offered by AmAZON????? It is clearly the best MPEOPEL recording around. It took several trips to specialty shops, I think it is hard because it was an import that was intended only for the brits!! Clearly MPEOPLE hass broken incredible boundries through their music and acute selection of lyrics, I can think of only Tracy Chapman and Natalie Merchent comming close to the socail impacts that MPEOPLE is breaking through with. Fantasy Islans is a good exampe of drawing critical social issues in to a song, the words are incredible. Thanks MPEOPLE for countless hours of relaxation and enjoyment!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Awesome, except for pointless remixes
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I love so many of the songs on this CD, especially "Testify", "Dreaming", and "Angel St". One thing I don't like about it is the inclusion of the remixes. What is the point? Perhaps they are a bit interesting, but I would have much rather had more tracks from "Fresco". In some ways, I don't see the logic behind this track selection. Ok, so it includes the three new songs from the import "Best Of" and the three singles from the import "Fresco". Great, but what was the logic behind the other tracks? Hmm, should this be the U.S. release of "Fresco"? Well maybe, let's through in two more album tracks. Or should it be a "best of"? Perhaps, lets include two singles from "Bizarre Fruit". Or should it be a remix album? Ok, that too, we'll add three pointless remixes. I am planning to just buy "Best Of" to get the shorter radio versions of some of their earlier tracks, and "Fresco" to get the other album tracks, so in the end, I really won't have any need for this CD. It does have a lot of great songs on it though."
