AllMusic Review by

The Dutch collection 20 Great Love Songs delivers what the title promises -- Leo Sayer performing 20 romantic pop standards, including "When I Need You," "Raining in My Heart," "Dancing the Night Away," and "Giving It All Away." The album also features some later, synth-driven performances from Sayer, such as "Orchard Road" and "Unchained Melody," that sound too slick and out of place with the warm soft rock of his '70s hits. As such, 20 Great Love Songs is a less-than-ideal greatest-hits package, though it may still be of interest to die-hard fans.
