For nine of this compilation's 15 tracks, Devotion dips into two of Yanni's quieter recordings, 1992's Dare to Dream and 1993's delicate In My Time. Those selections, intermingled with an assortment of the keyboardist's more dynamic works ("Santorini," the ubiquitous "Within Attraction"), create a generally satisfying survey of Yanni's first seven albums. (Niki Nana and Optimystique are not represented here, which is a plus.) The claim, as stated on the CD's packaging, that this is the best of Yanni is a stretch, but the package does offer a decent overview of his work, with a tilt toward his gentler side. "The End of August" and "Marching Season" are presented as performed in concert at the Acropolis. --Terry Wood

This is a classic best of Yanni CD it has some of his best music and realy gets you going with a livly beat and a New Age Composition of musical overtones and beats. It is rich and full of some of the best of his songs from some of his better Albums or CD's all compiled into on masterpiece inside the Front Cover it Lists 12 of his greatest CD with pictures of the Album covers. I think this is a great work of art.
My best rating ever - 54 THUMBS UP!
YANNI'S #1 FAN | Poughkeepsie, NY, USA, Earth. | 01/07/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)
"I have been an avid Yanni fan since I first became old enough to listen to music. I must say though, this CD is by far the most awe inspiring collection of musical brilliance I have ever encountered! I own at least three copies of each of his CD's, and eight copies of DEVOTION: THE BEST OF YANNI. Listening to Yanni's music has really put things into perspective for me, and has improved my life holistically! I recommend this CD for anyone who has ears!"
