    ANITA BAKER IS THE BEST!!!, September 24, 2002

    This review is from: The Best of Anita Baker (Audio CD)
    This collection is long overdue. The best of Ania Baker is in full effect on every track on this CD. There is no one in contemporary R&B who is as unique as Anita Baker. The CD covers her incredible five albums. Many of the classics are included, Sweet Love, Giving You The Best That I Got, You Bring Me Joy, Fairytales, Angel, Body & Soul, etc. Anita sings with such heart and conviction. Her voice caresses you like a warm blanket and ignites you like a quiet fire. My only complaint with the CD is that the single versions of many songs are present, and not the full length versions. Anita is sheer artistry and perfection. She is a singer’s singer, a true classic, divinley unique and a testimony to craftsmanship. Although such gems as Watch Your Step, Been So Long, Whatever It Takes and Soul Inspiration, are not included, this CD remains a must have for your collection. Enjoy The Songstress at her best and get Caught Up In The Rapture all over again.

    I just got this CD the other day and really couldn’t figure out what took me so long to get it.

    Anita has true vocal talent and this is a collection of her best.
    This cd is a collection of beautifully written and performed songs. Most fans always want their favorites on a greatest hits, but of course there has to be a limit. It’s nice to not have to switch from cd to cd to hear the songs that I like.
    Noticeably missing is, Been So Long.

    I am glad that this CD contained a lot of her great work from all of her Cds including her debut. I am happy to see “No More Tears” (which wasn’t a big commerical success, but in my opinion it was one of her ver best songs.

    In all honesty, of the 18 songs on this cd, there is only one song that I would have excluded (and that’s simply because it is one that never got my attention). This is a must for Anita Baker fans.

    It has been almost twenty years since Anita Baker made it on the scene with The Songstress. Now, her legacy of R&B has finally a collection of its own.

    The 2002 album, The Best Of Anita Baker is a showcase of 18 of Anita’s most loved songs, from all five of Anita’s albums: The Songstress, Rhythm Of Love, Compositions, Rapture, and Giving You The Best That I Got. Each song reflects beauty and elegance, with a dash of the old school R&B that many radio stations continue to overlook today. The album also includes mega-hits like Body & Soul, Sweet Love, Fairy Tales, plus her Grammy winning song, I Apologize.

    Although the album is pretty fair, many of the songs were compressed down to single versions, rather than the full versions from Anita Baker’s albums. Still, some other songs could’ve been on this album, like When You Love Someone from the Billy Crystal film, Forget Paris, and Perfect Love Affair. Nonetheless, it is a pretty decent greatest hits album.
