A Real "Priority" For Power Pop/Ballad Fans

""From The Heart" is a great compilation. I picked it up a few years ago when I was chasing after a particular young lady. Naturally I ended up listening to it alone and pining over her later. From the first to the last song, this album is filled with great power ballads from the 80's. Priority Records did a great job compiling this disc. It gives us the somewhat hard to find "When I'm With You" by Sheriff, who disbanded quickly after the song was released. Who knows, they might have been as big as REO Speedwagon when it comes to love songs. It also gives us "The Flame" which is one of the best Cheap Trick songs ever. Jeff Healey's "Angel Eyes" is a great love song for oafs like myself who don't quite understand why some ladies fall for them. Bad English, REO Speedwagon, Alias, .38 Special, Night Ranger and Survivor round out this album. It's more than worth the price, and it's great for reminiscing about the good ol' days. As a matter of fact, many of these love serenades still work on the ladies.Get this disc if you loved the power ballads of the eighties. It may not have some of the harder rockers who are known for ballads like Whitesnake and Def Leppard, but it gives you a good selection of great hits that everyone knows and loves. Highly recommended."
Great Love Collection

"The song "With I'm With You" is definately the best love song ever recorded. It makes one wonder why Sheriff hasn't resurfaced. Along with "When I See You Smile" and "Sister Christian" along with other great 80's power ballads, this CD is a great one to have in any music collection."
On this Cd are possibly the greatest Love songs of the 80's

"This Cd contains such love song hits as More Then Words Can Say, The Search Is Over, Angel Eyes, and other greats. It brings back great memories to those that were alive and in love in the 80's of those happier and simpler times when we were younger and our love was our main concern."
