If you're a big fan of the power ballad, let me introduce you to the flagship band of that genre(with Journey as a close second). REO Speedwagon falls into that fateful category caught between hard rockers and pretty boy posers. But don't count that against them. These songs are good. They might get a little sugary at times, but, overall, this is a solid album of big hits for the 'Wagon.
"I Don't Want To Lose You" sets the stage on this album. It lets you know what's in store. What follows is a songlist of primarily power ballads with a few rockers thrown in for good measure. "Keep On Loving You," "In My Dreams," "Can't Fight This Feeling," and "Here With Me" are all included. The cautious tale "One Lonely Night" shows a darker side to love songs. The rockers here include a live version of the "last song, people" biggie "Ridin' The Storm Out," "Roll With The Changes," and "Keep Pushin'."
Other songs that I enjoyed on this album include "I Don't Want to Lose You" and "Time For Me To Fly."
These guys, along with bands like Styx, Foreigner, etc. often catch a lot of flack for sounding too slick to be considered real rock bands. Don't let that deter you from the fact that these bands knew how to make hit records. You may question their motives, but in the end every band is in it for the money, no matter what they say. So take this album for what it is. It's a good compilation of huge commercial hits for a good band. It's also a "sure thing" when you want to get that special someone in the right mood......

The groups Foreigner, Foghat, Styx, Journey, Air Supply, and the subject of this review, REO Speedwagon, can cause a lot of debate among music fans due to the "corporate rock" effect that took place in the 1970's, where artists' albums were guaranteed platinum sales if they became part of the well-oiled machinery that may have yielded hits on the radio, but remained in an uninspired and uninnovative cozy rut. As someone into all kinds of music, I find myself in a very untenable position. I like REO Speedwagon, yet I like classic punk and disco, two genres of music that broke the musical cul-de-sac America seemed to be going into.
Having established that, the Hits, which came out a year after REO's last studio album of the 80's, 1987's Life As We Know It, encapsulated material from their R.E.O. 76 album up to Life As We Know It, with two new songs. The first one, the intense and yearning "I Don't Want To Lose You," was written by the team of Tom Kelly and Billy Steinberg (Heart, Bangles) and the languid "Here With Me," which was a close cousin to "In My Dreams" released the previous year.
Life As We Know It was released when I first got into them and,"That Ain't Love" was quite a rocker by their standards, as I had the preconception that they were mellow rock like latter day Chicago, but no, this fiery affirmation that "say what you want to hear, do what you want to do" ain't love, told me otherwise.
However, the third single, co-penned by lead singer Kevin Cronin and ace songwriter Tom Kelly, "In My Dreams" sounded more what I expected to hear, soaring lead vocals, inoffensive harmonies, in other words, the mainstream rock ballad.

REO Speedwagon have been called "one of the superpowers of Arena Rock." Ever since they started releasing albums, they have been a band that almost never fails to please. Having heard many of the band's songs on the radio and having enjoyed them, I bought this compilation. Read on to see how it measures up.
First of all, the pros. You get just about every major hit the band has ever had (Roll With The Changes, Keep On Loving You, Take It On The Run, Can't Fight This Feeling, Time For Me To Fly, and Ridin' the Storm Out.) These songs still get radioplay to this date, and with good reason. Also, the compilation doesn't just rely on the hits. The opener, I Don't Want To Lose You, demonstrates beautifully that a band's big hits aren't always the best tracks. Here With Me and That Ain't Love further demonstrate this.
As good as this compilation is, it's not perfect. The major problem is that it overemphasizes the band's eighties material (these were their "power ballad" years.) Most of the band's hard rock material came out in the seventies, and sadly, this compilation deprived us of some excellent cuts. Likewise, It doesn't quite fill the eighty minutes that can fit on a CD. Surely, at least two more tracks, preferably from the seventies, could have filled that gap.
Final verdict? If you're a casual fan of this band, or maybe you just like a song or two, this is the compilation for you.
