AllMusic Review by

Love songs never go out of style, maybe because love never does. It finds us even when it’s the last thing in the world we might be ready for, and it can leave us as mysteriously as it arrived, and usually we’re not ready for that, either, and then there are those million points in between, including happily ever after, and we love singing about every square inch of it. This two-disc, 40-track set of recent love songs from the Sony catalog is a case in point. It features love songs by artists as varied as Shakira (“Did It Again”), Britney Spears (“Everytime”), Eva Cassidy (“Songbird”), Norah Jones (“Come Away with Me” ), Van Morrison (“Brown Eyed Girl”), Al Green (“Let’s Stay Together”), Eric Carmen (“All by Myself”) and Nina Simone (“The Look of Love”), all of whom wade in on the subject of love. It’s out there. It finds us. We sing about it. The world goes round and round.
