Album Review

M People were one of the best and most successful bands to come out of the U.K. in the 1990s, and, amazingly, scored only one major hit in the U.S. with the electrifying "Movin' on Up." Their sophisticated blend of house, dance, soul, and pop, highlighted by Heather Small's always impressive vocals, is wonderfully represented on The Best of M People. This stellar collection rounds up all their major European hits, as well as several new tracks, including the soulful single "Testify," "Dreaming," and their excellent cover of the Doobie Brothers' "What a Fool Believes." Also included are early hits such as the funky "Colour My Love" and "How Can I Love You More," hits from their peak period including "Movin' on Up," "One Night in Heaven," "Open Your Heart," and "Sight for Sore Eyes," and later hits such as "Angel St." and "Just for You." Also here is their epic version of "Itchycoo Park," which had previously appeared on Bizarre Fruit Part 2. A wonderful, well-rounded collection highlighting the best of one of the 1990s' most exciting (and in the U.S., most under-appreciated) acts. Buyer beware, however, because around the time of this album's release, a terribly assembled U.S. compilation titled Testify hit the shelves. Spend a few extra dollars and buy this import, because it is miles better than the bizarre hodgepodge that is Testify. As a final note, the versions included here are the edited single versions. ~ Jose F. Promis, Rovi

Best forgotten Band EVER!!!!

that last person has no idea what they are talking about, this is a classic album and a must have. Whether you have heard of them or not, this album is worth every-penny. Its such a shame that M-People have been forgotten as they wrote some classic songs. Every song on this album is a feel good classic and there is a song suited to every occasion. The lead singer has a stunning voice and Heather Small's solo material is also worth a listen!!!!

One Night In Heaven

M People sold over 10 million albums in the 1990's, fans still want a new album, Heather Small has a song which represents the nation in terms of sporting excellance, sexuality and life improvements! M People done something right. 'The Best of M People' is a definitive collection of their biggest hits (minus Small's later release of Proud). Upbeat, Positive and at times motivational M People sent out these messages instead of the hate and resentment many of their peers wrote about. Anthems such as Moving On Up, Search For The Hero and One Night In Heaven show us why this greatest hits is a must have.

One of the few albums which I like every song

This album was the soundtrack to my childhood. My parents would regularly play it on car journeys to my grandparents and buying this today gives me a very nostalgic feeling. Catchy songs and lovely harmonies make this a feel-good album in the days where auto-tune is rife.
