The Best - Dan Seals


This album is one of Dan's very best. The great range of hits in this album makes it one of the very best buys on the market. From God must be a cowboy, to the haunting sound of One Friend, which is possibly the greatest Dan Seals song of all time, to the wonderful blending of the voices of Marie Osmond and Dan Seals in Meet me in Montana, this album has something for everyone. I strongly recommend it.

A Good Americana Compilation


This compilation was made soon after the 9/11 in a wake of patriotic feelings among Americans. It comprises songs of different genres, from rock ballads ("Peaceful World" by John Mellencamp, "Lean on Me" by Bill Withers) to ballads ("Bridge over Troubled Water" by Simon&Garfunkel), to big Americana hits ("God Bless America" by Celine Dion, "America the Beautiful" by Frank Sinatra, "This Land Is Your Land" by Pete Seeger, "We Shall Overcome" by Mahalia Jackson) to the National Anthem "The Star Spangled Banner" by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, plus "Hero" by Mariah Carey, "There's a Hero" by Billy Gilman, and a few more.
This CD is a good compilation of songs that may lift the spirits of the nation, as well as some truly inspirational melodies. Performances by Tramaine Hawkins ("Amazing Grace"), Billy Gilman, Celine Dion, Simon&Garfunkel, Bill Withers are the gems of this CD. The same can be said about the National Anthem, though you might find some acappella version (by Lee Ann Rimes, for example) not less appealing.
Personally I bought this CD because of Lee Greenwood's "God Bless the USA". But this turned out to be the worst track. It is probably some remix. Almost nothing is left from the original version, neither its marching touch, nor the integrity that left your skin covered with goosebumps, inspired you and made you realise the true spirit of American patriotism. The version from this CD is more on the jazz, relaxed side, which is killing for such a song.
On the whole, this CD deserves your attention if you need a compilation of Americana music, or at least a flavour of it.

New Sound, Same Glorious Voice


When I first listened to 'One Heart' there was, or so I thought, either some dust or other debris on the disc because of an irritating 'skip' during "I Drove All Night." I cleaned the disc only to find that this did not rectify the problem. So I returned the disc stating that it had a defect. Well, it turns out that this 'defect' is also disappointingly apparent on the replacement disc. I am surprised that no other reviewer has mentioned this.At 3' 24" into "I Drove..." there is a very irritating pause, however brief. I love the song but this pause is extremely annoying at best. In my opinion it nearly completely ruins this great song. I find the rest of the songs to be mediocre. This is not one of Celine's best offerings. 'One Heart' is good and the new version of 'Sorry for Love' is probably my fave on the disc, but the original version was much better.As a Celine Dion fan, I am disappointed.
