Released on Rhino/Atlantic/Face Value Records in the fall of 2004, Love Songs is a good idea executed poorly. Since Phil Collins is known for his romantic hit ballads, the idea to have all of these hits on one disc is appealing. That's not what Love Songs is -- as the subtitle A Compilation...Old and New suggests, it has grander ambitions than that. It spans two discs, adding several new songs, rarities, and live recordings into the mix, sometimes substituting alternate versions for the hit version (as on a live version of "Separate Lives" and a rehearsal take, of all things, for "True Colors"). While the low-key, romantic atmosphere is more or less kept throughout the 25 songs, the preponderance of unfamiliar material and sheer length makes this a less than ideal make-out record. This is one case when less would have been more. ---Stephen Thomas Erlewine, AllMusic Review

Phil Collins’ third solo album established him as the most unlikely superstar of the 80s. Number one in eight countries, over two million copies sold in the UK, where it has been certified six times platinum, and including no fewer than four American ten 10 singles (two of them US chart-toppers), No Jacket Required was as much of a mid-80s radio and CD player staple as Purple Rain, Born in the USA, Like a Virgin and Brothers in Arms.

It was the quintessential Live Aid-era album from the definitive Live Aid-era artist – not for nothing did Collins interrupt the No Jacket Required World Tour to appear at the Philadelphia and Wembley Stadium Live Aid events on the same day. It sounded quintessentially mid-80s, too, with its machine rhythms and blaring horns. You couldn’t get more mid-80s guests than Sting, Helen Terry and Peter Gabriel, who all provide backing vocals on the album. The placement of some of the songs on the soundtrack to Miami Vice was none-more-80s, while the video to Take Me Home, wherein Collins is filmed everywhere from Tokyo and Sydney to Moscow and Memphis, reeked of Reagan/Thatcher-era conspicuous consumption and like-punk-never-happened excess.

But there’s no denying that, for sheer proficiency and mastery of its domain, this blend of power ballads and synthed-up, hook-heavy rock remains unbeatable. Sussudio may have been in hock to Prince’s 1999 up to its rolled-up-jacket-sleeve elbows, but it was a blistering album opener. One More Night was a slow jam just crying out to be covered – or sampled (Collins is an unexpected rappers’ delight). Don’t Lose My Number, a US single, had melodic echoes of Easy Lover, Collins’ chart-topping team-up with Earth Wind & Fire’s Philip Bailey from the same year. Take Me Home, the fourth single, ostensibly about a patient in a mental institution, successfully combined electronic and organic instrumentation.

Elsewhere, Long Long Way to Go recalled the work of fellow Genesis alumnus Gabriel and proved that Collins was equally adept at incorporating experimental ambient textures and world music polyrhythms into his music. No wonder it won the 1985 Grammy Award for Pop Album of the Year. --- Paul Lester, BBC Review

 

 

Album "No Jacket Required", ukazał się pierwotnie w 1985 roku. Był to trzeci solowy album Phila i pierwszy, który osiągnął szczyty notowań po obu stronach Atlantyku. Materiał zdobył status multiplatynowy, przyniósł artyście trzy nagrody Grammy oraz sprzedaż na poziomie ponad 20 mln kopii na całym świecie.

Z tego albumu pochodzą takie hity Anglika jak "Sussudio", "One More Night", "Don't Lose My Number", czy "Take Me Home". Na lata utwory te były stałym punktem występów Phila Collinsa.

Reedycja na CD została wzbogacona przez Phila Collinsa wersjami demo, wykonaniami koncertowymi piosenek oraz utworami ze stron B singli. Podobnie jak w przypadku reedycji "Face Value", "Both Sides", "Hello, I Must Be Going!" oraz "Dance Into The Light" zmieniona została okładka. Na wznowieniu można zobaczyć obecny wizerunek Phila Collinsa, który przed kilkoma miesiącami zapozował do zdjęć dokładnie tak samo jak przed laty. ---empik.com

Along with being a multi-talented musician and an excellent songwriter, Phil Collins is one of the best live performers in rock. His songs usually stay true to their original form, he puts plenty of fire into his vocals, and best of all, every one of his in-concert qualities transfers well into album form. Serious Hits...Live! is a wonderful example of this, with not only 15 tracks, but 15 of Phil's best tracks, performed with an overcharged amount of enthusiasm and energy. There's an equal number of ballads and fast songs on the album, but even on the slow stuff, Collins puts a lot of passion and feeling into the lyrics. Efforts such as "One More Night," "Do You Remember?," and especially his best ballad, "Against All Odds (Take a Look at Me Now)" are heartfelt and unhindered. His moods shift easily without any false emotional dramatics, which in turn enhances the ambience of the songs. The tracks are taken from a number of shows during his Serious Tour in 1990, but his performance level remains enthusiastic the whole album through and the change of venues goes unnoticed, which is again another plus. Collins is just as sharp on the quicker tunes, with some wonderful percussion filling in behind him. The drumming is stellar on "Easy Lover" and again on "Sussudio," but the album's only downfall is its lack of credits, leaving the identities of the musicians a mystery. The album makes up for this with a spine-chilling version of "In the Air Tonight" as Collins does a good job of capturing the song's haunting air, and from here the album switches gears with "You Can't Hurry Love" but doing so with undefiled perfection. Almost all of the songs here broke Billboard's Top Ten, and five of these tracks hit number one, which makes Serious Hits...Live! truly live up to it's name. ---Mike DeGagne, AllMusic Review
