Recensione album

It's hard to believe, but prior to the 2003 release of The Definitive Collection, there wasn't a proper hits collection in Lionel Richie's catalog. A decade earlier, Motown dipped their toe in the water with the jumbled Back to Front, which tried desperately to camouflage its nature as a comp with three new songs, which, at 14 tracks, hurt the hit quotient dramatically. This, however, gets it almost all right. Spanning 20 tracks (only two of which are new, tacked onto the end; while not especially memorable, neither is bad), this collection has nearly all the big hits from his solo recordings (the Top Ten "Love Will Conquer All" is notably absent, but that's the only chart-topper not here), along with five Commodores ballads that showcase Richie the balladeer at a peak: "Just to Be Close to You," "Easy," "Three Times a Lady," "Still," "Sail On." Since these were the first tracks to showcase Lionel Richie as a talent separate from the Commodores, their presence is welcome on a collection of his solo hits, and they indeed make this a fuller experience, since this now has all of Richie's soft rock hits in one place. Taken together, it's a formidable body of work, making a clear case for him as one of the preeminent soft rock craftsmen of the early '80s. True, the collection might have benefited slightly from a chronological track listing, but by jumping between albums, and between Commodores and solo material, the consistency of his records becomes evident. Few of his peers created singles as memorable as "Easy," the infectious "All Night Long (All Night)," "Truly," the sweetly melancholic "Hello," the insistent, gently ominous "Running with the Night," "Just to Be Close to You," and the ebullient "You Are," as delightful as 45s came in the early days of the Reagan Administration. Not everything here quite reaches those standards — admittedly, those are the hits upon which his reputation lay, plus they're the best that soft pop got in the '80s — but the rest is all well-crafted and easily enjoyable, proving that Lionel Richie is a singular adult contemporary talent. He may be sappy, but he's got skills. [The import version included two discs.]

I've not words

Non ho parole! Una figlia degli anni '80 può crescere, evolversi, cambiare gusti musicali, cercare di adeguarsi ai terribili ritmi del 2000 ma Lionel rimane sempre lì nei ricordi ... pronto a saltar fuori da un momento all'altro. Dopo quasi vent'anni che non riascoltavamo alcune di queste canzoni oggi io e mio marito abbiamo digitato Lionel in "cerca in Music Store". E' come se non fosse passato nemmeno un giorno ... ricordavo ancora tutte le parole! Ma la cosa più incredibile sono le sensazioni che ha risvegliato ... le stesse di tanti anni fa! Lo faremo ascoltare spesso ai nostri tre figli ... il sapore della memoria! Compratelo ... grande atmosfera ... grande pathos ... qualcosa da raccontare!

After leaving the Commodores, Lionel Richie became one of the most successful male solo artists of the '80s, arguably eclipsed during his 1981-1987 heyday only by Michael Jackson and Prince. Richie dominated the pop charts during that period with an incredible run of 13 consecutive Top Ten hits, five of them number ones. As his popularity skyrocketed, Richie moved further away from his R&B origins and concentrated more on adult contemporary balladry, which had been one of his strengths even as...
