AllMusic Review by

There can't be much of a market for it, but here it is anyway: a 12-track compilation of New Edition ballads, 1985-1996, that is heavy on album cuts. There are four Top Ten R&B singles here: "Lost in Love," "With You All the Way," "Can You Stand the Rain," and "I'm Still in Love with You." The deeper selections are fine and certainly deserve to be heard by more ears, but the set won't appeal to most casual listeners -- who need the uptempo hits -- and the more serious fans have either the albums or more in-depth anthologies like Gold.
