"For so many artists, yet they have to keep being reintroduced with Greatest Hits collections that really don't seem to stand on their own two feet. That has been the case with so many Soul Artists including Roberta Flack, and Anita Baker. Sadly, that also goes within the case of Vanessa Williams. Yet, she has made herself into a elegant torch vocalist, but there is a case wheer the hit collections don't seem to really add up.As Part of the Universal series 20th Century Masters: Millennium Collection, this 2003 Greatest Hits collection, is more drawn to budget record going buyers. The songs that Vanessa Williams performed is ranged quite nicely, with songs that are just truly as amazing as you could see and hear from her. The songs basically reflect from her four studio records with Mercury, The Right Stuff, The Comfort Zone, The Sweetest Days, and Next. There are just so many good songs here on this collection including Save The Best For Last, Dreamin', The Right Stuff, and Oh How The Years Go By. Still, it is just a mixed bag on this collection, because there are some songs that weren't featured on Vanessa's 1998 Greatest Hits record: The First Ten Years like Happiness, and Work To Do. But that also goes the same in the opposite direction. There are just so many good songs that also were overlooked here, including Love Is, her duet with Brian McKnight, Colors Of The Wind, which won an Academy Award in 1996, and Where Do We Go From Here from her 1996 film, Eraser.Still, there are so many people that are still drawn in to Vanessa Williams music. If they never heard some of these songs, I suggest they buy this collection, and her other Greatest Hits record, The First Ten Years. Hopefully, that will bring so many smiles alone on so many faces. Still, I would love to see her sometime come back with a new album soon."
