Forever Gold: Soul Hits collects R&B hits spanning three decades. Unfortunately, the lusterless production doesn't properly represent the dozen-track set. Timeless classics such as "Ain't No Stoppin' Us Now," "Got to Give It Up," "Shop Around," and "Love Machine" sound dull and lifeless. Sure, St. Clair does a decent job plugging select hits from each decade, but if you're looking for these particular tracks, you'd be best to check out each artist's individual discography for a sharp, sonic groove.
