Truly: The Love Songs

by: Lionel Richie

As the title indicates, Truly: The Love Songs whittles down Lionel Richie's hits -- both solo and with the Commodores -- to just the romantic tunes. As many of his best-known songs are indeed love songs, it's easy to listen to this 1997 compilation and think there's nothing missing, but there are some big hits MIA: "All Night Long (All Night)," "Dancing on the Ceiling," "Running with the Night," and "You Are," to name a few. What this does offer are his biggest ballads and slow jams -- "Hello," "Penny Lover," "Three Times a Lady," "Sail On," "Easy," "Endless Love," "Truly," "Stuck on You," "Say You, Say Me" -- and that makes for nice romantic mood music. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
