AllMusic Review by

Pure Love gathers 17 of the most romantic songs of the '70s, '80s, and '90s, from R&B ballads like Marvin Gaye's "Let's Get It On" and Brian McKnight's "Anytime" to Lillith Fair love songs like Sheryl Crow's "Strong Enough" and Paula Cole's "I Don't Want to Wait." Highlights include Rod Stewart's "Reason to Believe," the Commodores' "Still," the Four Tops' "I Believe in You and Me," Hall & Oates' "Sara Smile," and Vanessa Williams' "Sweetest Days." Though it drifts into syrupy sweetness occasionally, Pure Love is a pleasant collection of songs expressing many different sides of love.
