This album was released back in 1997 when we were getting their US debut here in the states. The US debut was a combination of this album and their European debut. However, in making the US debut, some really good songs from here were left off.
This CD includes 3 of BSB's biggest hits to date ("Everybody", "As Long As You Love Me", and "All I Have to Give") which were released over the course of 1997-1999 along with "Quit Playing Games" and "I'll Never Break Your Heart" from their first album. Also present on here is the fair cover of "Set Adrift" and the almost frightening "If You Want It To Be Good Girl." And then we have the even better songs that were never released here in the states. The uptempo "That's the Way I like It" (no, it isn't a KC and the Sunshine band cover) is a nice little dance song and has became a fan favorite, but it was never really one of mine. It's still worth checking out. There's also the gorgeous ballad "10,000 Promises" which is another fan favorite and really shows off BSB's powerful vocals. Next is the power ballad "Like A Child" (a favorite of mine) complete with an electric guitar solo and everything. "That's What She Said" is also on here. Written and sang by Brian, it's more proof just how talented BSB are. And finally, we have "If I Don't Have You." IIDHY sounds very early-mid 90's-ish, but it's a beautiful ballad with very sweet vocals.
So, to any BSB fan that's trying their best to be patient for BSB's new album, this is a great buy. Definitely worth the money!
