AllMusic Review by

Ultimate Love Songs: The Very Best of Jim Brickman features 15 of the internationally popular contemporary instrumentalist's greatest vocal collaborations, such as "Love of My Life" with CCM legend Michael W. Smith, "Never Alone" with country-pop collective Lady Antebellum, "Valentine" with contemporary country superstar Martina McBride, and "Hear Me (Tears into Wine)" featuring Michael Bolton. Also included on Ultimate Love Songs are four new tracks, including the hit single "Never Far Away" with popular Christian rock outfit Rush of Fools. Brickman has worn many hats throughout his career (jingle writer, new age composer, contributor to both the Muppets and Sesame Street), and this fine collection represents just one facet of his musical output. Listeners looking for a more instrumental-based, though no less amorous overview should check out 2007's Pure Jim Brickman.
