Love Songs: A Compilation...Old and New

Lead Performer: Phil Collins; Producer (group): Atlantic

Thanks to the Postal Service’s electronica version of ”Against All Odds” (currently enjoying heavy rotation on MTV and a spot on the Wicker Park sound-track), Phil Collins seems ripe for a groovy kind of renaissance. His best-of set, Love Songs: A Compilation, is well-timed, but there’s only so much Phil we can take (there are 25 tracks!). While guilty-pleasure gut-wrenchers like ”One More Night” and ”Separate Lives” still delight, bland covers of chestnuts such as Leonard Bernstein’s ”Somewhere” come off as su-su-super self-indulgent.
