AllMusic Review by

Usually, a best-of compilation features songs performed by its subject, but as one of America's most prolific and successful songwriters, Burt Bacharach is able to have an entire two-disc set come out featuring his songs and only appear on it once. On The Best of Burt Bacharach: Anyone Who Had a Heart, listeners can dive into the composer's sizable songbook with pop gems like Tom Jones' "What's New Pussycat?," Aretha Franklin's "I Say a Little Prayer," and Isaac Hayes' "I'll Never Fall in Love Again," showing the versatility and talent that have made Bacharach a pop treasure.
