Nur das Beste covers the same ground as many other European Engelbert Humperdinck compilations, gathering songs from the '80s, including "The Spanish Night Is Over," "On the Wings of a Silver Bird," "Then You Walked into My Life," and a version of "Please Release Me." These songs and a few others are passable, but the bloated, glossy versions of "Are You Lonesome Tonight" and "I Can't Stop Loving You" are more than a little hard to take. Die-hard fans missing some of the songs on this collection might find some worth in it, but overall, Nur das Beste isn't a particularly good compilation of Humperdinck's work.
