As Yanni compilations go (and this is his eighth, the fifth churned out by his former record company in a three-year period), this is a well-conceived package, commendable for its focus and continuity of style. It is, basically, music for bubble baths, a bouquet of warm, piano-based sweet nothings. Love Songs takes nine of its 12 gentle selections from two of Yanni's quieter releases, Dare to Dream and the hushed piano intimacy of In My Time, and its stately, neoclassical romanticism is more reminiscent of David Lanz than the ballad-like pop of Jim Brickman. For listeners in search of a non-jarring audio element to add to your evening of candlelight and massage oil, this is a worthy selection. If this strikes your fancy, seek out an overlooked 1984 solo piano gem from David Lanz, Nightfall. --Terry Wood

I was never interested in getting a cd of Yanni's, even though I had really liked his "Paths on Water" for years.
But then I kept hearing some of the songs from the Love Songs cd (on Pandora.com), and began falling in love with them. I was jazzed to find that I could pick it up thru swapacd!
He has a way with the melodies--"whispers in the Dark" make me really imagine being in bed with my lover whispering sweet nothings to me--most of the songs in fact feel like that-very intimate, like Yanni has a way of finding a path into your heart.
I really like "To the one who knows"- these are not just piano music, but skilled presentations from an artist.
Yanni delivers once again.

"Love Songs by Yanni is an extraordinary album to own. The soothing, relaxing sounds from Yanni will put you in a trance as soon as you hear the 1st track. "In the Morning Light" feathers a new sound of love through your head and puts you in the mood as easy as it comes. The notes Yanni hits in "Almost a Whisper" can be compared to some of the great anthems of our time as it will never leave your head, filling your mind with fine thoughts of plush velvet silk and the fresh scent of red rose pedals slowly accenting from a breeze onto a vanilla bed of dreams. Yanni delivers once again on this brilliant and vibrant album filled with passionate love songs to hug you to sleep. "Felitsa" is one of my personal favorites as the sounds of ocean waves crashing against white washed rocks on a pebbled beach come to mind and bring upon you instantaneous heaven. Finally, "Enchantment" is the gem of this album. You will hear beautiful sounds and visions of greek gods caressing your shoulders behind Yanni's sexy notes. This is a great cd to add to your Yanni bedroom shrine of his lyrical infection and white lace scented candles. Curl up by the fireplace, dim the lights, or even start a hot bubble bath and get ready to indulge in the sweet sounds of Yanni."
Yanni is brilliant

"I have bought this CD, I was never a fan of his music, after listening to the first track, I fell in love with this music, it is very original and quite soothing. It is for people who seek harmony in their lives. He is brilliant."
