Album Review

The Definitive Collection lives up to its title. Over the course of a single disc, the compilation features all of Eric Carmen's best-known songs and biggest hits, from the pair of Raspberries hits ("Go All the Way," "Overnight Sensation (Hit Record)") to such mainstream pop singles as "All by Myself" and "Hungry Eyes." While the Raspberries' albums are worthwhile listening in their own right, Carmen's solo records were often wildly uneven. The Definitive Collection distills all of the best songs from his spotty albums, making it essential for both casual listeners and Raspberries' fans who want a sampler of the songwriter's solo career.

Customer Reviews

All by myself

as a 14 year old boy. I should go by the norm and love Maroon 5 or Pitbull. No thanks. I'll stick to Eric Carmen's 'All by myself'

Criminally underrated artist

Without a doubt, Eric Carmen was one of the geniuses of '70s power pop, from his days with the Raspberries and on to a solo career which should have built more momentum than it ever did.

Occasionally, he was guilty of going over the top with the syrupy quality of some ballads, and even then, some of them were eminintly listenable. I particularly like "All For Love," a saccharine-sweet love song which I'm amazed didn't spend some serious top-40 time.

But Carmen has never been anything if not able to work a hook. Songs such as "Tonight," "All By Myself," "Sunrise," "She Did It," "Overnight Sensation" -- these are some of the catchest songs of the era.

Would be complete but missing one great song.

I have this CD and enjoy listening to it, but for me it is not a complete definitive collection because it is missing " I'm Through With Love " which is one of his better songs. I have searched I-Tunes and can not find this song anywhere. Beyond that one little fact, I would still say that this is the best collection of Eric Carmen's hits and I would highly recommend it to anyone.

Eric Carmen has amassed an impressive amount of hit singles over his long career, whether it be as a member of the influential power pop outfit the Raspberries, as a solo artist, or as a songwriter for others. Born on August 11, 1949, in Cleveland, Ohio, Carmen began his musical training at an early age -- by the age of six, he was taking violin lessons, and by 11, he was playing piano and penning his own original compositions. With his discovery of the Beatles during the early '60s, Carmen's attention...
