Love Songs by Phil Collins: Mood Music for My Bad Days

Recently I received some Lovetoshop vouchers that can be used in HMV shops. Subsequently I was in my local shopping mall and when I passed the HMV shop I decided to check out the CDs. I came across the offer of 2 for £10. After a quick search I got 2 CDs. Love Songs (A Compilation...Old and New) by Phil Collins is one of them.

The CD:

Love Songs (A Compilation...Old and New) is a collection of love songs that Phil Collins has either written or co-written, in addition to songs that have been written by others.

The CD was on market in 2004. It was released by Virgin Records. It has two disc sets and includes 25 songs in total. The Disc 1 has 12 songs and the Disc 2 has 13 songs. The details are listed below.

About Phil Collins:

Phil Collins was born in 1951. He is an English singer, songwriter, drummer, pianist and actor. His professional music career began as a drummer. When he was a member of Genesis he made him well- known as a drummer and vocalist. As a solo artist he has won numerous music awards throughout his career, including seven Grammy Awards, five Brit Awards including Best British Male three times, etc. In 2010 Phil Collins was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Genesis.

Price and availability:

As I said earlier I used £10 voucher for two CDs in a HMV shop. However you may possibly be able to get it cheaper online. Currently it is sold on Amazon website for just £4.49. It’s also available on other retailers and the prices are similar.

My opinions:

Before I bought the CD I didn’t have any idea about Phil Collins. So I didn’t have any high expectation for it. I was attracted by the cover design, which is an air mail envelope. However when I played it on my Pure Digital DMX-25 I was really pleased with my choice.

Every time when I listen to this CD, I feel very relaxed. It can remind me of my old times and it always cheers me up. Now it has become my favourite CD.

Due to my limited ability in English I can’t understand every word in his songs. However that doesn’t bother me. I love the feel of great music and I think he has written and sung some very beautiful love songs on this album. I can listen to over and over again.

Final word:

The CD of Love Songs (A Compilation...Old and New) by Phil Collins is really a great album and is definitely worth the money. I highly recommend it. No matter you are Phil Collins fan or not.
